Should be required reading for EVERYONE!

Noting the critique of some of this books 'reviewers,' that it is partisan, or more pathetically, "woke," confirms the very reason the author felt the need to write the book. Their "cognitive dissonance" leads them to the need to deny the truth presented in this book as leftist; a truth that is routinely and purposefully avoided by politicians and the corporate sponsored main stream media to keep US citizens dumbed down and distracted from assuming their roles as educated citizens, and maintains North America as a plutocracy seemingly heading steadily toward a dictatorship. That is, unless folks DO read books such as this and Zinn's "A People's History of the United States," and other such revisionary books, and take to the streets to put this country on the course to a real democracy.

Writing about History Requires Research

To write a book about History, one must due research and understand that customs of the time period. Author's who write history based on their personal politics are distorting facts. Picking and choosing facts to create the image one wants, doesn't make it a historically factual book. It makes facts into fiction. History needs to be written how it happened without bias to political feelings and opinions no matter what the story tells. That's the only way to learn from it. This author doesn't do that. This author writes opinion history based on only the "facts" chosen to prove their point. Not a good book. If you care about History, don't read the garbage.


A bit one sided politically....

American Truth!

It is a book well research truth on the lies high school text books keeping on spinning. There is a difference between patriotism and nationalism. Professor Loewen exposed the rosy picture on land of the brave and free in human sacrifice and genocide of Native Americans, Columbus, War of Independence, Lincoln Civil War, President Wilson, FDR, Vietnam and Iraqi wars. No wonder trust to our government is 19%! This book motives reader to research more on American truth in history of imperialism and colonialism and the cover up, such as WMD ! Understanding the ugly past help standing for peace. American power is in dollar, world wide military base and hegemon in universal value of freedom, democracy and human rights. Why acts a savior but ignore our poor, homeless and economic depressed? Where is great past Empire in history? Hysteria politicians will make or break the beacon of democracy ? Will citizens affect policies dictated by Washington with the Industrial Military Complex?
