"Drawing on sources that include the unpublished records of the Joint Chiefs as well as the War, Navy, and State Departments, Mark Stoler analyzes the wartime rise of military influence in U.S. foreign policy. He focuses on the evolution of and debates over U.S. and Allied global strategy. In the process, he examines military fears regarding America's major allies - Great Britain and the Soviet Union - and how those fears affected President Franklin D. Roosevelt's policies, interservice and civil-military relations, military-academic relations, and postwar national security policy as well as wartime strategy"--Jacket

The skeptic's guide to American history by Mark A Stoler( Recording )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bold 24-lecture course examines many commonly held myths and half-truths about American history and prompts you to think about what really happened in the nation's past-as opposed to what many believe happened. Delivered by award-winning scholar and Professor Mark A. Stoler of the University of Vermont, these lectures demonstrate how reconsidering some of hte most popular notions of U.S. history can yield new (and sometimes startlingly different) interpretations of political, social, economic, and military events
The skeptic's guide to American history( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For most Americans, the history of the United States is built on a set of long-accepted beliefs about events, each of which resonates in the nation's collective memory. But what if those beliefs, however familiar, don't really tell the whole story? Our knowledge of history - or what we believe to be history - is the lens through which we view and interpret the world. And when that lens is distorted with misleading information, it has powerful effects on how we perceive the present and how we make decisions in the future, from choosing whom to vote for to interpreting the latest developments in today's news and opinion pieces

The skeptic's guide to American history by Mark A Stoler( Recording )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To take a skeptical approach to American history is not to dabble in imaginative conspiracy theories; rather, it's to reframe your understanding of this great nation's past and actually strengthen your appreciation for what makes American history such a fascinating chapter in the larger story of Western civilization. And in this bold 24-lecture series, you can do just that. Travel back in time and examine many commonly held myths and half-truths about American history and prompt yourself to think about what really happened in the nation's past - as opposed to what many believe happened. These lectures demonstrate how reconsidering some of the most popular notions of U.S. history can yield new (and sometimes startlingly different) interpretations of political, social, economic, and military events. But more than just debunking commonly accepted accounts, you'll be able to replace these misconceptions with insightful truths. Exploring both America's history and the verdicts that have been rendered about some of its most enduring figures - including George Washington, John Adams, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and many others - these lectures investigate a wide-ranging list of questions. What impact did other nations have on the American Revolution? Has George Washington always been revered as president? Do we now understand the true blunders in America's Vietnam policies and tactics?"--Publisher

The skeptic's guide to American history by Mark A Stoler( Recording )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"... very few people realize how much of what we think we know about American history is mistaken ... many popular beliefs about history in general--and about U.S. history in particular--are myths, either totally false or, at best, only half true. In this course, we will examine some of these myths, such as those concerning the origins of religious tolerance in America, the American Revolution, George Washington, the causes of the Civil War, the causes and conduct of World War II and the Cold War, and America's supposed history of isolationism and anti-imperialism, as well as our government's laissez-faire policies regarding business ... We will also examine how and why these myths arose and what historians now say about what really happened--as opposed to what most Americans believe happened."--P. 1 of course guide
