Recommends it for: anyone who took a high school history course and thinks they know history because of it
Shelves: learn-something
This will blow your mind when you find out there are EXTREMELY important things left out of our high school history books. It drives home the idea that "history" is controlled by the man with the pen. This is a must read.

The title says it all. Another great historical text from Lerone Bennett.
