Hidden Truths Stripped From the National Dialogue

Publisher: Beaufort Books

Bruce Herschensohn challenges the same old beliefs most often heard in the media and read in the textbooks. Is Afghanistan really the longest war in the history of the United States? Was Hong Kong given back to the People’s Republic of China in 1997 because of the lease signed by Great Britain in 1898? Herschensohn convinces us with evidence that the answer to both questions is no.

The book covers a wide range of controversial issues in domestic as well as international politics from US president’s constitutional rights to the Israeli-Palestinian Authority peace process. As you read on, you will realize sooner or later that you have been put into a “coma” by the media. This book is a call to start, reconsidering, questioning, and digging deeper into what the media feeds the public.

Lucid, succinct, abundant in historical evidence, and easy to read, this book will draw general readers interested in contemporary politics as well as scholars and students of history and politics. But perhaps most important, it will win the applause of the people who like to engage in true critical thinking.
