Think you know the Civil War? You don't know the full story until you read The Politically Incorrect GuideTM to the Civil War Bestselling author and former Conservative Book Club editor H. W. Crocker III offers a quick and lively study of America's own Iliad--the Civil War--in this provocative and entertaining addition to The Politically Incorrect GuideTM series. In The Politically Incorrect GuideTM to the Civil War Crocker profiles eminent--and colorful--military generals including the noble Lee, the controversial Sherman, the indefatigable Grant, the legendary Stonewall Jackson, and the notorious Nathan Bedford Forrest. He also includes thought-provoking chapters such as "The Civil War in Sixteen Battles You Should Know" and the most devastatingly politically incorrect chapter of all, "What If the South Had Won?" Along the way, he reveals a huge number of little-known truths, including why Robert E. Lee had a higher regard for African Americans than Lincoln did; how, if there had been no Civil War, the South would have abolished slavery peaceably (as every other country in the Western Hemisphere did in the nineteenth century); and how the Confederate States of America might have helped the Allies win World War I sooner. Bet your history professor never told you: * Leading Northern generals--like McClellan and Sherman--hated abolitionists * Bombing people "back to the Stone Age" got its start with the Federal siege of Vicksburg * General Sherman professed not to know which was "the greater evil": slavery or democracy * Stonewall Jackson founded a Sunday school for slaves where he taught them how to read * General James Longstreet fought the Battle of Sharpsburg in his carpet slippers This is the Politically Incorrect GuideTM that every Civil War buff and Southern partisan--and everyone who is tired of liberal self-hatred that vilifies America's greatest heroes--must have on his bookshelf.

What the PC Police don't want you to know--and what they got plain wrong--about the South From the Founding Fathers to the frontiersmen who tamed the West to the country music, NASCAR, Biblethumping heart of "Red State" America, the South is the quintessence of what's original, unique, and most loved about American culture. And with its emphasis on traditional values, family, faith, military service, good manners, small government, and independent-minded people, the South is just plain more livable than the North--which is one reason why millions of Yankees, white and black, have been moving down South in droves. The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to the South gives you the facts behind scores of revelations like these: · How Southerners led the way in drafting the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights · How the Northern victory led to today's all-powerful federal government · Why race relations in today's South are much better than in the North--or anywhere else in America · Why the South is naturally conservative (and the North is naturally liberal) · How American jazz, blues, and rock and roll all came from the South · Why Southerners are overrepresented in the military--and no, it's not poverty · The best American literature? Southern, of course "The South is all about memory, heritage, and pride of place," writes Clint Johnson. "I refuse to go along with the expunging of that memory, heritage, and pride, and I hope the readers of this book, Northern and Southern, will rise up and join me in protesting those who are trying to do it."

Crocker III’s panoramic and provocative view of four hundred years of history that will delight and amuse, educate and entertain. Strap on your pith helmet for a rollicking ride through some of history’s most colorful events.

Hollywood liberals and leftist pundits are at it again. In preparation for the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, they're rolling out the old lie that free sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll define the '60s. And now they're brainwashing yet another generation of Americans. Jonathan Leaf's new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to The Sixties shatters the myth that the 1960s were full of drug-loving hippies and revolutionary student radicals. Contrasting the Sixties' wild reputation with the conservative reality, Leaf shows how the 1960s were actually dominated by Brooks Brothers and Broadway musicals--not bell bottoms and Bob Dylan. The Politically Incorrect Guide to The Sixties also reveals that "the Age of Aquarius" was really the age of conservatism. Leaf exposes how radical factions hijacked feminism, the civil rights movement, and academia, replacing original ideologies--based on traditional ideals and love for country, family, and man--with more extreme philosophies and methods. Bet the Beatles never told you that: *The civil rights movement actually experienced setbacks in the 1960s as the "Great Society" encouraged reliance on welfare in urban areas*The notorious student radicals were a minority on college campuses; the majority of students supported the war in Vietnam and spent most their time going to classes, going on dates, or just being teenagers*Rock music was only a small part of the Sixties music legacy, with crooner Bobby Vinton scoring more number one hits than Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, The Grateful Dead, or Jefferson Airplane*The sexual revolution of the 1960s was just a continuation of a movement that had begun in 1890--and the 1920s and the 1940s were far more sexually explosive than the 1960s If you think Woodstock and Acid Tests defined the age of peace, love, and war, then you'll be singing a whole new song after reading The Politically Incorrect Guide to The Sixties--and it won't be The Grateful Dead.

The truth revealed--and PC myths shattered--about the Founding Fathers Tom Brokaw labeled the World War II generation the "Greatest Generation," but he was wrong. That honor belongs to the Founders--the men who pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor for the cause of liberty and independence, and who established the United States. This was a generation without equal, and it deserves to be rescued from the politically correct textbooks, teachers, and professors who want to dismiss the Founders as a cadre of dead, white, sexist, slave-holding males. Now, a clear-sighted conservative historian, Dr. Brion McClanahan, does just that. In The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers, he profiles Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, and other important Founders; traces the key issues of the day and shows how they dealt with them; and in the process details the Founders' deep faith, commitment to the cause of independence, impeccable character, and visionary political ideals. Even better, The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers proves that the Founders had a better understanding of the problems we face today than do our own hopelessly liberal and painfully self-serving members of Congress. McClanahan shows that if you want real and relevant insights into the issues of banking, war powers, executive authority, freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, states' rights, gun control, judicial activism, trade, and taxes, you'd be better served reading the Founders than you would be watching congressional debates on C-SPAN or reading the New York Times. That makes The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers much more than simply a restoration of a bit of our patrimony, reconnecting us with the greatest political thinkers in our history--as urgently needed as that is. McClanahan shows that it was from their debates--and their bedrock conservative principles--that we secured our liberty. He argues that only by understanding their principles will we be able to keep the freedom that Americans have cherished for generations. That makes this a vital guide to restoring a sane, sober, Constitutional sense of responsibility to today's public debates.

The Vietnam War was a tragic and dismal failure—at least that is what the mainstream media and history books would have you believe. Yet, Phillip Jennings sets the record straight in The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Vietnam War. In this latest “P.I.G.”, Jennings shatters culturally-accepted myths and busts politically incorrect lies that liberal pundits and leftist professors have been telling you for years. Bet you didn’t know that: The U.S. did not lose the Vietnam War—we won it The U.S. achieved our goal—we stopped the spread of Communism The U.S. did not suffer significant battlefield losses The cultural chaos of the 1960s and 1970s negatively influenced the Vietnam War—not vice versa The Vietnam War was the most important—and successful—campaign to defeat Communism. Without the sacrifices made and the courage displayed by our military, the world might be a different place. The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Vietnam War proves the above and more as Jennings reveals the truth about the battles, players, and policies of one of the most controversial wars in U.S. history.

Stalin’s gulag, impoverished North Korea, collapsing Cuba...it’s hard to name a dogma that has failed as spectacularly as socialism. And yet leaders around the world continue to subject millions of people to this dysfunctional, violence-prone ideology. In The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to Socialism, Kevin Williamson reveals the fatal flaw of socialism—that efficient, complex economies simply can’t be centrally planned. But even in America, that hasn’t stopped politicians and bureaucrats from planning, to various extents, the most vital sectors of our economy: public education, energy, and the most arrogant central–planning effort of them all, Obama’s healthcare plan. In this provocative book, Williamson unfolds the grim history of socialism, showing how the ideology has spawned crushing poverty, devastating famines, and horrific wars. Lumbering from one crisis to the next, leaving a trail of economic devastation and environmental catastrophe, socialism has wreaked more havoc, caused more deaths, and impoverished more people than any other ideology in history—especially when you include the victims of fascism, which Williamson notes is simply a variant of socialism. Williamson further demonstrates: Why, contrary to popular belief, socialism in theory is no better than socialism in practice Why socialism can’t exist without capitalism How the energy powerhouse of Venezuela, under socialism, has become an economic basket case subject to rationing and blackouts How socialism, not British colonialism, plunged the bountiful economy of India into stagnation and dysfunction—and how capitalism is rescuing it Why socialism is inextricably linked to communism If you thought socialism went into the dustbin of history with the collapse of the Soviet Union, think again. Socialism is alive and kicking, and it’s already spread further than you know.
