History in the Making by Kyle Ward
Book DescriptionIn this thought-provoking study, historian Kyle Ward provides a fascinating look at the biases inherent in the way people learn their country's history. Juxtaposing passages from US history textbooks from different eras, History in the Making provides intriguing new perspectives on familiar historical events and the ways in which they have been represented over time. An immensely readable book which proves that one person's history isn't their grandparents' history, and won't be their children's history.
