Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The books that this work is most similar to are Lies My Teacher Told Me, The Book of Lists series, and The People's Almanac series. I'd like to see this book stir discussion, be used by students as a resource, and turn many dull high school history classes into debating sessions.

More About the Author

I'm an Assistant Professor of American, American Indian, and Latin American history. I teach at Northern Virginia Community College and have also taught at Arizona State University, St. Phillip's College, San Antonio College, and Hasanuddin University in Indonesia as a Fulbright Senior Scholar.

Most of my work deals with war and peace, human rights issues, racism, religious bigotry, and questions of assimilation and identity. My writing and teaching aim for history from below and decolonization. One can see evidence in my work of the influence of James Loewen, Linda Tuwahi Smith, Vine Deloria, Jack Forbes, Howard Zinn, and Noam Chomsky.

I'm a longtime activist and volunteer researcher for NewAgeFraud.org.

My first book was on Native veteran traditions, their origins and changes over time, the very first international comparative study. My second book is a collection of family histories from survivors of war and genocide. My third, Presidents' Body Counts, is a look at presidents judged not on partisan ideology, but on their human rights records, how many lived or died because of the decisions they made or the actions they failed to do.

This is not a full review, but for interested readers Carroll identifies the 12 worst presidents as Nixon, Reagan, Jackson, Buchanan, Polk, Fillmore, Clinton, Ford, Truman, McKinley, GW Bush and Andrew Johnson; the four best as Lincoln, Van Buren, Carter and Grant; and five more who did both great evil and great good - Jefferson, FDR, Lyndon Johnson, Bush Sr. and Obama.

"Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." - George Santayana

We all have eyes but how many of us can claim to see clearly? For an average person bound by his high school text books, it won’t be easy to discover the truth about your own nation and its real history. You can never be a true patriot without knowing about the bad as well as the good

In Al Carroll's new book, ‘Presidents’ Body Counts: The Twelve Worst and Four Best American Presidents Based on How Many Lived or Died Because of Their Actions’, the author takes on a challenge. We are not supposed to speak or think evil about our Presidents. Most books by journalists, political commentators, and historians all appear to be more loyal to the White House than the truth; but not this book. It revels in detail about the evils done by our past presidents, the numerous cases of mass murder, incompetence, and misconduct. But it also takes a look at our noblest presidents. As he says, for every evil president, there were few good ones also whose actions and decisions have saved numerous lives.

This is a brave and magisterial work that will make you look again at American history and the Presidency. It’s a real eye-opener to anyone who thinks they know everything there is to know about U.S. history. It is the truth that you won’t hear through your mainstream media.

Al Carroll’s research and superb writing skill are clearly displayed in this wonderful book which has a beautiful and engaging use of phrases, elegant pacing, clear intent, and the right use of bold and highlighted passages to convey his arguments even more strongly. You will be amazed at the speed you will finish a book of this size.
