Jeff Riggenbach, author of Why American History Is Not What They Say: An Introduction to Revisionism, discusses the role of Charles Beard and Harry Elmer Barnes in advancing revisionist U.S. history, court historians who fight to preserve a mythology of benevolent government actions, drastic changes in the meaning of politically descriptive terms like “liberal” and “conservative” and moving away from a war/presidential perspective of history to a focus on economic/social science issues.
