Larry Schweikart talked about his book 48 Liberal Lies About American History (That You Probably Learned in School), published by Sentinel on September 4, 2008. Mr. Schweikart, a history professor, contends that distortions by liberal historians have permeated American history textbooks with slanted views. Professor Schweikart presented his research on several historical events that he believes have tended to be portrayed inaccurately, including the “Great Society,” the end of the Cold War, the Rosenberg spy case, and the building of the transcontinental railroad. Other topics included the changing meaning of “isolationism” and “imperialism” and whether “the first presidents intended to be isolationists” and if “the constitution was the creation of 'elites.'” He also talked about the historical effect of the tenure system on academia. Professor Schweikart responded to questions from members of the audience. close
