Professor Woods does an excellent job of refuting some of the common myths of American history. I sincerely wish this book was required reading for high school students today I wish I had a book like this when I was in high school back in the 1990s. My favorite part of the book is Wood's critique of Reconstruction he shows clearly that the Radical Republicans abused their authority in order to keep themselves in power. I remember my history teacher giving me only politically correct articles to read on this period of history. Parents, buy this book and make your kids read it!

INCORECTLY POLITICALLY WRITTEN

Mr. Woods tries to show us how our founding fathers laid out the Constitution and Bill Of Rights so America would be a nation with minimum Federal government and strong State's Rights. Per Mr. Woods, many of the issues leading up to the "War For Southern Independence" have been left out, overlooked, and/or twisted around in the history books.

Up to this point, I agree with Mr. Woods on most issues as he does a fair job of documenting them. After the Civil War, his documentation wanes and his views become theory; all that is good in America is due to big business and ultra-conservative republicans and all that is bad is everything and everyone else. Bad presidents were all democrats and the only good presidents were republicans, except the ones he does not mention because they did not lay down and roll over for the corporate giants. According to Mr. Woods, if we are not in total alignment with the industry giants of huge corporations, we must be evil liberals (or even commies) out for the ruination of America as a democratic republic.

I spent twenty bucks for a book because the title and cover led me to believe I would be informed about events in our nation's history which are not always politically correct. The real purpose of this book was to reveal how historians have put a liberal's slant on American history to appease the radical anarchist or anyone not fortunate enough to have made millions executing corporate doctrine. Those with independent ideas not considered appropriate by the standards of corporate America are labeled as liberal rabble whose every thought is bad for America. Mr. Woods' book is about partisan politics. It is a one-sided biased philosophy aimed at anyone unable to separate fact from fiction, but will accept a book written by a PhD as gospel.
