4.0 out of 5 stars A Review of U.S. "Political" History, 7 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Don't Know Much About History: Everything You Need to Know About American History But Never Learned (Paperback)
I enjoyed Ken Davis' book on U.S. History. I read my daughters high school textbook which was filled with many interesting facts but little opinion. Ken Davis' approach as one can see certainly sparks debate since it is not simply a compilation of facts. If one's mind set is beyond politics as religion and "my country right or wrong", then this book will be an eye opener. I have long waited to read a book that would be honest about our political history. Our rose colored view of history doesn't include the ethnic cleansing of Native American from this land nor the profound social problems that we still face because of enslavement of Africans. At last Ken Davis is willing to hold this challenges up to the full light and suggest that we need to grapple with the sides of our history that we wish would simply go away.
