About the Author
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.
A treat to read and a serious critique of American education.
--Award Citation, American Book Award
A lively critique.
--The New York Times
Honest and well-written.
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.
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.
