    'We have been flimflammed' declares Richard Shenkman. In this book he exposes the nonsense about history that we have been taught in school or picked up along the way. From the (dubious) Trojan War to Hitler and Hirohito as they were rather than as the propagandists presented them, the whistle-blowing historian dispels myths surrounding revolutions, religions, kings and queens, politicians and legendary figures, and ends by looking at how 'Hollywood does history'. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
