History Lessons by Dana Lindaman
Book Description"History Lessons" offers a light-hearted and fascinating challenge to the biases we bring to our understanding of American history. The subject of widespread attention when it was first published in 2004, this book gives a glimpse into classrooms across the globe, where opinions about the United States are first formed. Heralded as "timely and important" ("History News Network"), "History Lessons" includes sections from Russia, France, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Canada and others, covering such events as the American Revolution, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Iran hostage crisis, and the Korean War - providing an alternative history of the United States from the Viking Explorers to the post-Cold War era. By juxtaposing starkly contrasting versions of the historical events, "History Lessons" affords us a sometimes hilarious, often sobering look at what the world learns about America's past.
