Description

 “The problem in America isn’t so much what people don’t know; the problem is what people think they know that just ain’t so.” —Thomas E. Woods

 
Most Americans trust that their history professors and high school teachers will give students honest and accurate information.  The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History makes it quite clear that liberal professors have misinformed our children for generations.

Professor Thomas E. Woods, Jr. takes on the most controversial moments of American history and exposes how history books are merely a series of clichés drafted by academics who are heavily biased against God, democracy, patriotism, capitalism and most American family values.  

Woods reveals the truth behind many of today's prominent myths....

MYTH: The First Amendment prohibits school prayer

MYTH: The New Deal created great prosperity

MYTH: What the Supreme Court says, goes

From the real American “revolutionaries” to the reality of labor unions, The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History is all you need for the truth about America—objective and unvarnished.
