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.
