Wading through Amazon looking for righty propaganda, I stumbled across this fairly amusing list of leftist "myths" and historical biases. There are some interesting books there, including a couple previously recommended on this blog.
I have read a few of those books (the medieval history ones, mostly), and while at least two are pretty one-sided, the ones I am familiar with restore not only little-known facts but little-known arguments to the general discussion.
I'm very interested in revisitation the of Great Depression. I'm one of those who was caught in the "FDR is the greatest President ever, and we're not going to tell you about the bad or stupid things he did" trend in public education.
Thanks for the link.
