What to expect

Everything—well, almost everything—you know about American history is wrong, because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academic historians who treat their biases as fact. But fear not; Professor Thomas Woods refutes the popular myths in The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History.

Professor Woods’ book reveals facts that you won’t be, or never were, taught in school. It tells you about the “Books You’re Not Supposed to Read” and takes you on a fast-paced, politically incorrect tour of American history that will give you all the information you need to battle and confound left-wing professors, neighbors, and friends.

Listen to a sample

“It is not surprising that a history guide written by a professor with an undergraduate degree from Harvard and a doctorate from Columbia made it onto the New York Times bestseller list. What is surprising—refreshingly so—is that a text that challenges the liberal canon has so resonated with the American public…Provides a compelling rebuttal to the liberal sentiment encrusted upon current history texts…The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History is ultimately about truth…This is a book everyone interested in American history should have in his library.”

Weekly Standard

“Knowing our past is essential if we are to preserve our freedoms. Professor Woods’ work heroically rescues real history from the politically correct memory hole. Every American should read this book.”

The Honorable Ron Paul, MD, US House of Representatives

“Woods has taken on some of the big historical issues with a fresh and definitely non-PC approach. His take on American history is bold, brilliant, thought-provoking, and what is even better, entertaining.”

Clyde N. Wilson, professor of history, University of South Carolina

“An important work that refutes the misrepresentations of American history that have misinformed generations about their country, its origins, purposes, successes, and failures. Riveting, highly readable.”

Paul Craig Roberts, former assistant secretary of the US Treasury

“Provoke[s] thought in an entertaining way.”
