    DescriptionFor the past three decades, many history professors have allowed their biases to distort the way America's past is taught. These intellectuals have searched for instances of racism, sexism, and bigotry in our history while downplaying the greatness of America's patriots and the achievements of "dead white men." As a result, more emphasis is placed on Harriet Tubman than on George Washington; more about the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II than about D-Day or Iwo Jima; more on the dangers we faced from Joseph McCarthy than those we faced from Josef Stalin."A Patriot's History of the United States "corrects those doctrinaire biases. In this groundbreaking book, America's discovery, founding, and development are reexamined with an appreciation for the elements of public virtue, personal liberty, and private property that make this nation uniquely successful. This book offers a long-overdue acknowledgment of America's true and proud history.

    Review quote
    In "A Patriot's History of the United States", Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen remind us what a few good individuals can do in just a few short centuries . . . . A fluid account of America from the discovery of the Continent up to the present day. (Brandon Miniter, "The Wall Street Journal")No recent American history challenges the conventional wisdom of academics as aggressively as Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen's "A Patriot's History of the United States." (Daniel J. Flynn, "Front Page Magazine")There are a thousand pleasant surprises and heartening reminders that underneath it all America remains a country of ideas, ideals, and optimism--and no amount of revisionism can take that legacy away. (John Coleman, "Humane Studies Review")A welcome, refreshing, and solid contribution to relearning what we have forgotten and remembering why this nation is good, and worth defending. (Matthew Spalding, "National Review"
