EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

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.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In this hard-hitting collection of 4 essays, Dr Wilson cuts straight to the chase: YOU WERE LIED TO! You were lied to about the nature, character, and cause of the American "Civil War," but that is just the start. The entire South-its people, culture, history, customs, both past and present-has been and continues to be lied about and demonized by the unholy trinity of the American establishment: Academia, Hollywood, and the Media. In the midst of the anti-South hysteria currently infecting the American psyche-the banning of flags, charges of hate and "racism," the removal and attempted removal of Confederate monuments, the renaming of schools, vandalism of monuments and property displaying the Confederate Battle Flag, and even physical assaults, albeit rarely at present, on people who display the symbols of the South-Shotwell Publishing offers this unapologetic, unreconstructed, pro-South book with the hope that it will reach those who are left that are not afraid to question the sanity of this cultural purge and the veracity of its narrative concerning the South.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Should we accept the principles of neoclassical economics? This book attempts to develop effective critiques of neoclassical economics and is primarily directed towards the neoclassical economist. It is marked by a Socratic sense of the importance of criticism as a tool for enhancing understanding. The focus of the critiques is the foundations of neoclassical theory, beginning with those Alfred Marshall called the 'Principles of Economics'. Professor Boland explains why it would be futile to base critiques on this assumption. However, the lesser known 'Principle of Continuity' is shown to be more important because it can be a more rewarding target of criticism. Static neoclassical models typically ignore matters of continuity and instead substitute questions surrounding the existence of a general equilibrium solution. Modern criticism of neoclassical economics is concerned with the necessary conditions for the existence of a general equilibrium. Can general equilibrium models which assume perfect competition be plausible representations of reality? Unfortunately, we cannot simply append the assumption that firms are imperfectly competitive to produce models that are any more plausible. The Principles of Economics demonstrates that there is still much work to be done to make neoclassical economics more realistic. Much of what needs to be done can be easily understood by today's students. The appropriate beginning is honest but constructive criticism of the principles of economics.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A number of musical misconceptions are explored and exploded in this humorous and lucid discussion of the relation between the human perception of music and traditional systems of music education. Drawing on his extensive background in the music world, the author marshals an informal yet rigorous logic to guide the reader through the practical experiences and careful thinking that led him to his conclusions. Updated and refined in the light of reader feedback and more recent thinking, nagging questions such as Why does formal musical training seem not to pertain to musical success? and Why is there such a dramatic disparity between what one is told about music and how one actually experiences it? are re-addressed. Seekers of musical truth stand to profit from this light-hearted assault on the more nebulous assumptions of the musical community.
