About the Book

A college professor debunks the myths that have infiltrated America's school curricula.

In 1995, James W. Loewen penned the classic work of criticism Lies My Teacher Told Me, a left-leaning corrective that addressed much of what was sanitized and omitted from American history books.

But in the decades that followed, false leftist narratives—as wrong as those they supplanted—have come to dominate American academia and education. Now, in the same spirit but updated for 2024, Wilfred Reilly demolishes the scholastic myths propagated by the left, uncovers fresh angles on “established” events, and turns what we think we know about history upside down.

Lies My Liberal Teacher Told Me sets the record straight on many of these myths, including that there actually were communists in Hollywood; that the cultural stereotype of Native Americans being peace-loving hippies is both untrue and patronizing; and that history, while almost always bad for Black Americans, was much worse for all of us than we tend to think it was. 

Smart, irreverent, and deeply researched, Lies My Liberal Teacher Told Me will revolutionize your understanding of history and reveal a new and refreshing way to teach and think about the past.

Critical Praise

“Wilfred Reilly is the indispensable man in today’s politics: brash, fearless, hilarious, and insightful, he frustrates his enemies as he baffles with hard realities. Lies My Liberal Teacher Told Me is a vital work, and everyone interested in politics should have a copy on the bookshelf.” — Ben Shapiro

“Wilfred Reilly channels the spirit of Thomas Sowell in his new book, Lies My Liberal Teacher Told Me, which masterfully debunks left-wing talking points on race, sex, colonialism, and more. Reilly is a fearless writer who delights in confronting long-standing taboos and marshaling social science to correct the recording. This book is the antidote to mindless liberalism.” — Christopher F. Rufo

Lies My Liberal Teacher Told Me is the perfect book for combating the false narratives and fake history that have robbed too many high school and college students of critical thinking skills. Using facts and data, Reilly takes readers on an unforgettable journey that will leave them wondering what other lies they have believed.” — Carol M. Swain
