There are just so many other books I would rather read
on November 19, 2009
I had to read this book for a history class. I can't think of one possible reason why this book should be required for a college course. It is basically one main idea repeated over and over again with little historical evidence. This is a book that should be required instead for sociology courses.
Plus this book could basically be written by anyone. Most of the ideas found in it are common sense.
I am bias, however, as I fear multiculturalism as it will only make students less educated. People hardly know American history, I can't imagine them having the time to study multiple histories of other countries.
I do agree with the author, however, that history should be honest. Good luck with that!
