Democracy's Untold Story: How World History Textbooks Shortchange Our Students.
Gagnon, Paul
American Educator: The Professional Journal of the American Federation of Teachers, v11 n2 p19-25,46 Sum 1987
Provides excerpts from a forthcoming book on how high school-level history textbooks deal with the development and value of political democracy. Criticisms focus on: (1) these texts' choice of topic (particularly their emphasis on the West), (2) their handling of the political ideas of Ancient Greece, and (3) their representation of the meanings of the French and American revolutions.
