Just as in Lies my Teacher Told Me, Loewen challenges us to question what we have always believed. Better to be read as a set of stories rather than gospel history. Loewen's left leaning comes through just as in his previous Lies, but sometimes I think that it's his way of taking the opposite position from conventional thinking. This is not a perfect history book, but it made me think. In addition, I bought more copies to present as gifts to my history loving friends.
