In the recent rancorous debate over the setting of national standards for the teaching of history, Lynne Cheney, head of the National Endowment for the Humanities, accused the standards project of giving too much attention to women and minority groups. This book reveals how this debate became one more front in the culture wars and how it was recognized in the revised standards, which are now being used to make history both more stimulating and relevant to students.
