Don't Know Much About History, Anniversary Edition - Everything You Need to Know About American History but Never Learned

Kenneth C. Davis

"Fun, engrossing, and significant. . . . History in Davis's hands is loud, coarse, painful, funny, irreverent-and memorable."-San Francisco Chronicle Here, celebrating the twentieth anniversary of its debut as a New York Times bestseller, is the revised, updated, and expanded edition of the classic anti-textbook that changed the way we look at history. First published two decades ago, when the "closing of the American mind" was in the headlines, Don't Know Much About® History proved Americans don't hate history-just the dull version that was dished out in school. Now Davis has brought his groundbreaking work up to the present, including the history of an "Era of Broken Trust," from the end of the Clinton administration through the recent Great Recession. This additional material covers the horrific events of 9/11 and the rise of conspiracy theorists, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Hurricane Katrina and the failure of the New Orleans levees, the global financial meltdown, the election of Barack Obama, and the national controversy of same-sex marriage.
