Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An authoritative and fitting contribution to the myth-busting genre.” New York Times
“Brings together outstanding historians who draw on rich, often surprising recent research by themselves and others to present a much more complicated and less congratulatory picture of many of the most contentious issues in the nation’s history…Wonderfully accessible, jargon-free historical writing.” Washington Post
