U.S. history, whether you like it or not

The Mises Institute's summer lecture series continued last week with Thomas Woods' five-day, ten-lecture seminar, "The Truth about American History: An Austro-Jeffersonian Perspective." I'd been looking forward to this particular series, since Woods' book The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History (which I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend) raised such alarm among court historians and Big Media pundits earlier this year. I wasn't disappointed. Tom Woods is an entertaining speaker and does an exceptional job at organizing his material, all of which is well-documented.

In his seminar, Woods focused on states' rights, nullification, secession, the often troublesome 14th Amendment, the "Great" Depression, FDR, American labor history, and the always-escalating power of the presidency -- all from a very libertarian perspective.

As usual, the entire fascinating series -- 15-plus hours of audio -- is available for FREE download (MP3 files) from You can find it right here.
