History Lessons: How Textbooks from Around the World Portray U.S. History
Dana Lindaman (au); Kyle Ward (au)
Provides an enormous range of conflicting takes on seemingly straightforward events. Readers accustomed to a single view of Amer. history will find British & Canadian, & Amer. Indian, views of the War of 1812; Cuban & Russian views of the Cuban Missile Crisis; & Iranian views of the Iranian hostage crisis, among various other enlightening examples. Many of these textbooks are the only authorized source of info. about Amer. history in their respective countries. They are made accessible to Amer. readers for the first time, & several are highly controversial. “A lighthearted & engaging challenge to the biases we bring to our understanding of Amer. history -- & a sobering glimpse into how the rest of the world views the past we take for granted.”
