For the past three decades, many history professors have allowed their biases to distort the way AmericaÂ's past is taught. These intellectuals have searched for instances of racism, sexism, and bigotry in our history while downplaying the greatness of AmericaÂ'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 PatriotÂ's History of the United States corrects those doctrinaire biases. In this groundbreaking book, AmericaÂ'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 AmericaÂ's true and proud history.
