Don't Know Much About History, Anniversary Edition: Everything You Need to Know About American History but Never Learned (Don't Know Much About Series) ⣑ Book By Kenneth C Davis ⤚ Davis, author of the trademarked series of Don t Know Much About primers, seeks to dispel public boredom and ignorance about history and correct mistakes about various historical events in this update of his bestselling survey of American history He arranges the book around a series of short essays on questions ranging from the basic e.g., Why did the southern states secede from the United States to the esoteric What was Teddy Roosevelt s grandson doing in Iran , intended to crystallize larger themes in our country s past Davis s engaging treatment is spicy but judicious He notes sex scandals from Alexander Hamilton s to Bill Clinton s, tamps out JFK conspiracy theories and speculation about J Edgar Hoover s cross dressing, and debunks myths like the legend of Betsy Ross and the movie Mississippi Burning He provides sharply drawn, even handed accounts of controversies, and his verdicts are generally well considered Unfortunately, because discussions are usually tied to colorful personalities, heroic movements and dramatic crises, processes that are quiet but profound, such as the post war rise of suburbia and the decline of unions, tend to get slighted There s lots of history to browse through here, but little historiography to tie it together while the book is far superior to standard high school treatments, and a valuable reference for students young and old, it still leaves the impression that history is just one damn thing after another Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.This revised edition of a book Davis wrote 13 years ago is part of a series that includes Don t Know Much about the Civil War 1996 and Don t Know Much about Geography 1992 As in other volumes in the series, Davis strives to dispel myths and misconceptions about American history that he asserts people have learned in school This updated version covers, chronologically, topics from the migration routes of Native Americans to the destruction of the Twin Towers In his zeal to correct these misconceptions, Davis frequently employs a condescending and irritating tone In truth, many of his corrections are unnecessary because most reasonably well informed Americans are already aware of them Still, if one can get past the smugness, there is considerable merit in this book, especially for laypeople It is replete with interesting tidbits of information that can enrich one s general historical knowledge and stoke interest in further reading Jay Freeman Copyright American Library Association All rights reserved DON T KNOW MUCH Lyrics LINDA RONSTADT AARON NEVILLE Sep , For
