Since its first publication in 1995, Lies My Teacher Told Me has gone on to win an American Book Award, the Oliver Cromwell Cox Award for Distinguished Anti-Racist Scholarship, and to sell over half a million copies in its various editions. What started out as a survey of the twelve leading American history textbooks has ended up being what the San Francisco Chronicle calls “an extremely convincing plea for truth in education.” In Lies My Teacher Told Me, James W. Loewen brings history alive in all its complexity and ambiguity. Beginning with pre-Columbian history and ranging over characters and events as diverse as Reconstruction, Helen Keller, the first Thanksgiving, and the Mai Lai massacre, Loewen offers an eye-opening critique of existing textbooks, and a wonderful retelling of American history as it should—and could—be taught to American students. This 10th anniversary edition features a handsome new cover and a new introduction by the author.

For the average person, most of the American history that he or she knows comes from facts taught to them in school to prepare them for their state mandated tests. That's not the fault of their teachers who were just carrying out the directives of their employers. But it's also a fact that a great deal of that content that they were teaching is dry and boring. However, as in every aspect of life, there is always another story behind each major event. The story of America is interesting and exciting, but it's those lesser known parts of our history that make it special. Even though in most cases, the names and events in the book will be recognizable, most of the stories about them will be new to the reader. If you're a young teacher, perhaps you'll find some material to help you get through those less-than-exciting areas of your textbook. If you hated history as a student, maybe you'll find some of these tales entertaining. For those of you who are history buffs, hopefully you'll come across a few things that are new to you.

For 160 years, North American children have been subject to compulsory schooling. Formal education has evolved some over that time, but the end result of said evolution is an educational system which is dysfunctional, inefficient, and ultimately incapable of delivering on its professed mandates. Frank Pace is an educator with years of diverse experience. In System vs. Culture: North American Education and Society in the Balance, he looks at the current state of compulsory North American education and sees a system in crisis. He examines the history of modern education and dissects the root causes of its profound dysfunction. System vs. Culture: North American Education and Society in the Balance offers some insight into how an alternative model of education might operate and how it would better serve the needs of a changing society and better achieve its purported goals. Frank Pace has many important things to say about the state of North American education. His arguments are persuasive and lucid and backed up by solid scholarship. While the topic is complicated he does a good job breaking it down in a way that is readable and compelling for both education professionals and anyone interested in education and learning.
