History Mysteries

I found all but one of the twenty mysteries of American History worthy entries. John Kenneth Galbraith’s penultimate contribution, however, struck a dissonant note. In particular, Professor Galbraith cannot seem to resist taking advantage of any opportunity given him to disparage those who have, over the last half-century, opposed his failed brand of leftist economics. That American Heritage should provide yet another forum to this socialist anachronism to comment on contemporary American politics is, in my view, regrettable.

We hope you enjoy our work.
