Abstract:

"For the past three decades, those writing history have allowed their biases to distort the way America's past is taught. These intellectuals have searched for instances of racism, sexism, and bigotry in American history while utterly downplaying the greatness of America's patriots and the achievements of "dead white men."" "A Patriot's History of the United States corrects those doctrinaire biases. In this volume, America's discovery, founding, and development are reexamined with an appreciation for the elements of public virtue, personal liberty, and private property that make this nation uniquely successful."--BOOK JACKET.
