Reviews

Praise for Lies My Teacher Told Me
"Powerful . . . it serves as a crucial counter-textbook to provide a more realistic and critical narrative about the American past."
--Truthdig

"A treat to read and a serious critique of American education."
--Award Citation, American Book Award

"Remarkable."
--USA Today

"A lively critique."
--The New York Times

"Honest and well-written."
--Harper's Magazine

"Loewen's book contains so much history that it ends up functioning not just as a critique, but also as a kind of counter-textbook that retells the story of the American past."
--The Nation

"Every teacher, every student of history, every citizen should read this book. It is both a refreshing antidote to what has passed for history in our educational system and a one-volume education in itself."
--Howard Zinn
