Robert, This book is 38 years old, but it is still the most widely used American history textbook in high schools and colleges. The book is Howard Zinn’s, PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES. This is how Zinn introduces his book:
“... I prefer to try to tell the story of the discovery of America from the viewpoint of the Arawaka, of the Constitution from the standpoint of the slaves, of Andrew Jackson as seen by the Cherokees, of the Civil War as seen by the New York Irish, of the Mexican war as seen by the deserting soldiers of Scott’s army, of the rise of industrialism as seen by the young women in the Lowell textile mills, of the Spanish-American war as seen by the Cubans, the conquest of the Philippines as seen by black soldiers on Luzon, the Golden Age as seen by southern farmers, the First World War as seen by socialists, the Second World War as seen by pacifists, the New Deal as seen by blacks in Harlem, the postwar American empire as seen by peons in Latin America.” (p. 12).
Just imagine, almost two generations of students were taught to hate America. I have been studying American history for years, and this is the first time I have come across this total subversiveness of American historical education: education has become a secretive, underground dismantling of Western Civilization. How can you win a war when your children think you are the enemy?
My reply: Any comment would be a decrescendo.
