“A marvelous read. Every chapter taught me something new and unexpected.”
-Tom Bethell, senior editor, The American Spectator
“Tom Woods, one of the libertarian movement’s brightest and most prolific scholars, demolishes the historical myths that mislead too many Americans into supporting big government. I strongly recommend Woods’s work.”
-The Honorable Ron Paul, U.S. House of Representatives
“Woods is one of the brightest and most studious figures on the contemporary American Right. And despite his courteous manner and contemplative Catholic piety, he has no compunctions about taking apart the senile sixties leftovers who dominate his field.”
-Paul Gottfried, Raffensperger Professor of Humanities, Elizabethtown College
“Woods, among the most talented of young American historians, asks (and answers) the right questions about the Constitution, the Depression, presidential war-making, and other important things. In so doing, he continues the mission that he began with his Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, which is to bring well-deserved destruction to many of the convenient and misleading commonplaces of the American history class.”
-Clyde N. Wilson, Professor of History emeritus, University of South Carolina, and editor, The Papers of John C. Calhoun
“Woods takes on some of the most coveted of the politically correct sacred cows and shreds them the old-fashioned way – with incontrovertible evidence and sound reasoning. A provocative and fun romp through American history.”
-Roger D. McGrath, author of Gunfighters, Highwaymen, and Vigilantes
“A comprehensive antidote to much of the leftist propaganda that is drummed into today’s high school and college students by their teachers and textbooks in the guise of education. This book deserves to be assigned in economics courses as well as in American history courses.”
-George Reisman, author of Capitalism: A Treatise on Economics and Professor Emeritus of Economics, Pepperdine University
“Bold maverick Thomas Woods’s latest bestseller is provocative and controversial about issues of enduring importance.”
-Jim Powell, author of FDR’s Folly and Bully Boy
“[Woods] is liberty’s champion.”
-Ilana Mercer, WorldNetDaily.com
