Description:

Many books published over the years present the Founding Fathers as a group of wise, philosophical statesmen who spoke about timeless issues with a unified voice. In the place of rigorous history, the authors substitute out-of-context proof texts, and in the place of real analysis they offer us a collective myth of the founding era. This volume examines dozens of these books, articles, speeches, and broadcasts to expose the deep flaws in their use of American history.
