Here, celebrating the 20th anniversary of its debut as a New York Times best seller, is the revised, updated, and expanded edition of the classic anti-textbook that changed the way we look at history. First published two decades ago, when the “closing of the American mind” was in the headlines, Don’t Know Much About® History proved Americans don’t hate history—just the dull version that was dished out in school.

What would have made Don't Know Much About History, Anniversary Edition better?

The author calls Great Britain, England. Therefore it is very confusing. If the author doesn't know the correct name and terms of GB then it throws doubt on other facts. Really put me off that ignorance and lazy research has been used.

What could Kenneth C. Davis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
