American History Revised

“American History Revised is as informative as it is entertaining and humorous Filled with irony surprises and long hidden secrets the book does than revise American history it reinvents it” James Bamford bestselling author of The Puzzle Palace Body of Secrets and The Shadow Factory  This spirited reexamination of American history delves into our past to expose hundreds ofstartling facts that never made it into the textbooks and highlights how little known peopleand events played surprisingly influential roles in the great American story   We tend to think of history as settled set in stone but American History Revised reve. Some of the facts in this book I know are correct Many are very important as well Knowing that the US is not supposed to be a Democracy is something our presidents lack But I noticed a lot of problems in the book So certainly if I spotted some problems then most likely there are For instance our constitution and bill of rights have been intact for 230 years and set the record for continuous government This is not true at all Rome Byzantine and many others surpass 230 years But we don t even follow our constitution any either Looking over the things our government has done over the past 50 years almost none of it is constitutional He says Democracy and economic prosperity go hand in hand but ancient Greece could have a few words to say about this It also contradicts what was said about us not being founded as a Democracy Even though now we are so than everHe mentions Westinghouse paying his workers well and says he knew the thing to do was serve his employees Then he mentions Westinghouse losing everything after going into debt Well one reason he went into debt was because he overpaid his workers And things didn t turn out so good for his workers after many got fired once he lost control of his companies and they were restructured But he really misses the point in this lesson that companies aren t supposed to serve their employees they serve their customersHe says slaves from Africa were mostly indentured servants in one section then says they were slaves for life in Africa and sold as slaves to the whites The second assertion is correct Blacks were rarely indentured servants Whites that were in prison due to debts or other reasons typically were the indentured servants He also has a very strange view on slavery throughout the world compared to the US saying only in the US were blacks slaves for life Well all of south and central America say differently Lifetime slavery was the norm all throughout latin America even before many colonies were started in North AmericaThe entire section in Insull is very distorted Insull wanted regulations to protect him from competition and that s how his companies got so large The phrase no monopoly should be trusted to run itself is still a commonly used piece of sales jargon Monopolies form from government favors and restrictions so so monopoly exists in the first place without government regulations And the regulations that were put in place were not those that were repealed and led to Enron s crimes Enron was cooking the books and engaging in securities fraud Also the US military did not invent the internet The did choose a standard for the TCP protocol and anyone they communicated with had to then use that same protocol which led to it becoming the standard Her Small-Town Hero years and set

    I think this would make a better history book than most of what I remember I think a curriculum designed around this book with a standard history textbook as a back up would be a good way to teach historyFor one thing in this book each event is chosen because it's interesting and would probably get the attention
