Everything (well, almost everything) you
know about American history is wrong
because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academic historians who treat their biases as fact. But fear not: Professor Thomas Woods refutes the popular myths in The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History. Professor Woods reveals facts that you won't be—or never were—taught in school, tells you about the "Books You're Not Sup-posed to Read," and takes you on a fast-paced politically incorrect tour of American history that will give you all the information you need to battle and confound left-wing professors, neighbors, and friends.
Bet your teacher never told you:
Jefferson said states could nullify unconstitutional federal laws.
The Civil War wasn't launched to free the slaves.
FDR made the Depression worse.
The Marshall Plan didn't get Europe back on its feet; free markets did.
American workers prospered without labor unions.
During the 1980s, the "decade of greed," charitable giving grew at a faster rate than it had during the previous 25 years.
"Knowing our past is essential if we are to preserve our freedoms. Professor Woods's work heroically rescues real history from the politically correct memory hole. Every American should read this book."
— The Honorable Ron Paul, M.D., U.S. House of Representatives
An important work that refutes the misinterpretations of American history that have misinformed generations about their country, its origins, purposes, successes, and failures. Riveting, highly readable."
— Paul Craig Roberts, former assistant secretary of the U.S. Treasury
"Woods has taken on some of the big historical issues with a fresh and definitely non-PC approach. His take on American history is bold, brilliant, thought-provoking, and what is even better, entertaining."
— Clyde N. Wilson, professor of history, University of South Carolina
