Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned a Generation Against America

(CD-bok)
Beskrivning:

Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States has sold more than 2.5 million copies. It is pushed by Hollywood celebrities, defended by university professors who know better, and assigned in high school and college classrooms to teach students that American history is nothing more than a litany of oppression, slavery, and exploitation.

Zinn's history is popular, but it is also massively wrong.

Scholar Mary Grabar exposes just how wrong in her stunning new book Debunking Howard Zinn, which demolishes Zinn's Marxist talking points that now dominate American education.

In Debunking Howard Zinn, you'll learn, contra Zinn:

How Columbus was not a genocidal maniac, and was, in fact, a defender of IndiansWhy the American Indians were not feminist-communist sexual revolutionaries ahead of their timeHow the United States was founded to protect liberty, not white males' ill-gotten wealthWhy Americans of the "Greatest Generation" were not the equivalent of Nazi war criminalsHow the Viet Cong were not well-meaning community leaders advocating for local self-ruleWhy the Black Panthers were not civil rights leaders

Grabar also reveals Zinn's bag of dishonest rhetorical tricks: his slavish reliance on partisan history, explicit rejection of historical balance, and selective quotation of sources to make them say the exact opposite of what their authors intended. If you care about America's past--and our future--you need this book.
