Staff Reviews

This fascinating book re-prints the portions of foreign high school history texts that deal with US History to make the point that what we take for granted as our past is often not at all what the rest of the world believes.

The duo followed this up with History in the Making, a review of our own history texts over time, revealing such tidbits as a Southern state’s text, which, in essence, called the Ku Klux Klan a “friendly club” that left colored folks notes on their doors on how to better fit in after the Civil War.

Never has it been so apparent that history is in the eye of the beholder!
