33 Questions About American History You're Not Supposed To Ask


Formats & editions


News flash: The Indians didn't save the Pilgrims from starvation by teaching them to grow corn. The 'Wild West' was more peaceful and a lot safer than most modern cities. And the biggest scandal of the Clinton years didn't involve an intern in a blue dress.

Surprised? Don't be. In America, where history is riddled with misrepresentations, misunderstandings, and flat-out lies about the people and events that have shaped the nation, there's the history you know and then there's the truth. In 33 Questions About American History You're Not Supposed to Ask, New York Times bestselling author Thomas E. Woods Jr. reveals the tough questions about our nation's history that have long been buried because they're too politically incorrect to discuss, including:

Are liberals really so antiwar?

Was the Civil War all about slavery?

Did the Framers really look to the American Indians as the model for the U.S. political system?

Did Bill Clinton actually stop a genocide in Kosovo, as we're told?

The answer to all those questions is no. Woods's eye-opening exploration reveals just how much of the historical record has been whitewashed,overlooked, and skewed beyond recognition. 33 Questions About American History You're Not Supposed to Ask will have you wondering just how much of your nation's past you haven't been told.
