Why Study History?
Gagnon, Paul
Atlantic, v262 n5 p43-47,50-57,60-66 Nov 1988
Recognizing the value of studying U.S. history and the contribution of the textbook to the curriculum, Gagnon examines five leading U.S. history textbooks with regard to two questions: (1) how helpful are these books for teaching democracy's ideas, practices, and adventures in the United States, and (2) what might they add to promote political sophistication in U.S. students?
