  • Schweikart Reviews Overdue Account of America’s True History

    Heartland Institute ^ | May 27, 2015 | Nancy Thorner
    The final Heartland Author Series event before The Heartland Institute moves its headquarters from One South Wacker Drive, #2740, to its new facility in Arlington Heights was held on Thursday, May 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Featured was Larry Schweikart, who along with co-author Michael Allen, wrote the newly released 10th anniversary edition of “A Patriot’s History of the United States: From Columbus’s Great Discovery to America’s Age of Entitlement.” It is irrefutable that during 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,...

    self ^ | 6/13/2014 | LS
    Rush discussing the fact that despite $50 million in FREE marketing from the drive-by media, Hillary's book can't get above #4 on Amazon. When Patriot's History of the United States first came out, it got to #35 and stayed there for a while despite virtually no national publicity---and before Glenn Beck discovered it six years later. All it took was some mentions by Beck to take it all the way to #1, not just on Amazon, but on the NYTimes list, but my subsequent book "Seven Events that Made America" made the NYTimes list without much fanfare from Beck. Rush's...

    Truly amazing: the power of Glenn Beck. He mentioned A Patriot's History of the U.S. today on his radio show, then again on the TV show, and lo and behold, #1. Big stuff happening. Can't tell all yet, but watch our web pages, and Oh, and if anyone knows how to do a screen saver, I'd like to bronze this one.

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | August 24, 2006 | Jacqueline Merzer
    The history of the United States is a tale of constant oppression— a story of a checkered past where political leaders and economic moguls continually acted in their own self-interest… or so many left-leaning history authors would prefer modern Americans to believe. American history has been hijacked by the left wing, where the mistakes of America’s past such as slavery, disenfranchisement, and class warfare are overemphasized, while Franklin D. Roosevelt is simultaneously glorified as the savior of the twentieth century with his New Deal policies. While most textbooks of that nature may cast American history in a bad light and...

    Looks like I'll be on with Bridget Quinn and John Scott "debating" Alan Lichtman over the place of the Clinton impeachment in textbooks. Among other things, I'll demand fairness, that as the second impeached president he gets every bit as much attention as the first---Andrew Johnson. I'll also insist that he was acquitted only because the Senate refused to do its job. And it was not about sex.

    JEFFHEAD.COM ^ | 11 June 2005 | Jeff Head
    Jeff Head's Review of "A Patriot's History of the United States" Larry Schweikart (Freeper LS) and Michael Allen have written a history of the United States that is tremendously broad in scope, and monumental in its approach in our modern times. It begins with Christopher Columbus and proceeds through to current events, including 9-11 and its aftermath, the War on Terror and the fights in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as the re-election of George W. Bush.. The work covers over 510 years of history in 825 pages. There are over 70 pages of footnotes at the end of the...

    <p>FP: What do you think motivates many Americans to loathe their own country?</p> <p>Schweikart: I think this has its origins in several underlying factors. One is, liberals hate capitalism because it's been my experience that they just don't understand it. Most haven't read Adam Smith and certainly don't get that "self interest" is not selfishness. So right off the bat, any country that is primarily capitalist is "evil."</p>

    Don't know much about history? Do your kids only know America as an imperialist, warmongering nation? A Patriot's History of the United States: From Columbus's Great Discovery to the War on Terror might be the book for you. A Patriot's History is just short of 1,000 pages written by two conservative history professors, Larry Schweikart (University of Dayton) and Michael Allen (University of Washington, Tacoma). It's not only a primer on American history, but a friendly primer — sometimes a rarity among such books. Professor Schweikart spoke to NRO's Kathryn Lopez this week about the book, and since it's Presidents'...

    The History News Network ^ | January 31, 2005 | Larry Schweikart
    For a half a century, the interpretation of America's story has drifted steadily leftward, sometimes almost imperceptibly and sometimes rather obviously. Whether through deliberate revision designed to question America's unique place in the world---often out of guilt---or whether through the steady assault of race, class, "gender," and other "oppressed/oppressor" scholarship, the overwhelming majority of U.S. history textbooks today have a distinct leftward slant. This became apparent to me more than a decade ago as I struggled to find a textbook that would emphasize the Founders and their visionary documents, analyze the New Deal critically (pointing out its myriad long-term harms),...

    BOOK REVIEW: A PATRIOT'S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES By L. Schweikart and M. Allen; Publisher: Penguin, N.Y., 2004 It is refreshing to see a book like this published by a mainstream publisher. It seems that at least one mainstream publisher sees the advantage of having some balance in their list. Penguin is normally a reliable fountain of Left-wing books. Perhaps they even bored themselves in the end. The book is however on a special "Sentinel" list for specifically conservative books. Quarantining conservative books like a dangerous disease is a sort of a compliment to such books, though. It shows...
