Democracy's Jewish and Christian Roots: What World History Textbooks Don't Tell You.
Gagnon, Paul
American Educator: The Professional Journal of the American Federation of Teachers, v11 n3 p22-3,40-1 Fall 1987
Discusses the fact that although Jewish (along with Greek ideas) and Christian ideas make up the roots of Western culture, they are hardly mentioned in recent historical textbooks. This shortchanges students because they fail to learn the religious sources of human rights and democracy. (PS)
