Editorial Reviews

Review

“In the sequel to his bestseller, Lies My Teacher Told Me, James Loewen has crafted a critique of how history is being taught in public education that should be in the hands of every practicing and pre-service social studies teacher in the United States.”

The History Teacher (from the first edition)



"Loewen challenges us to critically reflect on the essence of what social studies and history education is and what social studies and history educators do. Doing so can only improve the experiences our students have."

The Social Studies (from the first edition)



"The author's recommendations on how to teach touchy topics to diverse classes are exceptional. His counsel on defining nationalism and ethnocentrism for young people is expert too. All along, the reader is not only reintroduced to critical knowledge that may have been forgotten as a result of time spent within an unproductive educational system, but is also sure to find new and transformative information. Even the trained professional must be reminded of what once was. This book does that and more."

The Journal of Negro Education (from the first edition)



"The revised edition of Loewen’s book builds upon the first edition by applying these principles to contemporary circumstances. For example, a new chapter addresses post-truth politics and the Trump presidency. This makes Loewen’s work more valuable than ever for students, educators, and communities." ―Teachers College Record



“As the cover indicates, textbooks are one of the barriers to genuine learning about history. Textbook publishers don't want to offend school boards. In some cases, this means that textbook writers must avoid telling the truth about historical events and historical personages…. After reading this book, I'm willing to declare myself a fan of James W. Loewen. It may be difficult to uncover historical truth in some cases, but I applaud Loewen for prioritizing it and showing the importance of historical truth for all of us.”

Shomeret: The Masked Reviewer

"Loewen's book combines salt-of-the-earth wisdom with a moral imperative to create a more just society. We can start by cutting out the lies and telling kids the truth about the past. This book should be required reading for every history teacher in the land."
Sam Wineburg, Margaret Jacks Professor of Education and (by courtesy) History, Stanford University

Praise for the First Edition!

“Should be in the hands of every history teacher in the country.”
