It's just called history, asserts Inga Muscio in her newest book. In fact, the controversial author continues, the so-called history we learn in school is no more than a brand, developed by white men who, often unjustly, won the right to spin their stories as hard facts. With Autobiography of a Blue-Eyed Devil, it's Muscio's turn and she's taking it in order to hip the masses to the truth about the American history they think they know. Whose country is it? Has democracy ever really existed? Why does our culture celebrate certain figures and ignore others? Do schools teach kids to perpetuate white supremacist ideologies? Muscio delves deep to answer these questions, marveling at how personal history is to everyone, while challenging people to expand their thinking on America's past and encouraging them to consider how their own histories might read.

Review: Autobiography of a Blue-Eyed Devil: My Life and Times in a Racist, Imperialist Society

User Review  - Amanda - Goodreads

No respect for the writer. She calls America, Amerikkka and defended serial killer Aileen Warnos. I'm a feminist, an activist and a democrat. While she raised good points she was too condescending. Read full review
