ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

The American Textbook Council was established in 1989 as an independent national
research organization to review social studies textbooks and advance the quality of
instructional materials in history. The council endorses the production of textbooks that
embody vivid narrative style, stress significant people and events, and promote better
understanding of all cultures, including our own, on the principle that improved textbooks
will advance the curriculum, stimulate student learning, and encourage educational
achievement for children of all backgrounds. The council acts as a clearinghouse for
information about social studies textbooks and educational publishing in general. It has
published numerous history textbook reviews and other curriculum studies. Consulted by
educators and policymakers at all levels, it provides detailed information and textbook
reviews for individuals and groups interested in improving educational materials. The
American Textbook Council thanks the Searle Freedom Trust, Achelis and Bodman
Foundations, Stuart Family Foundation, and other funders for their support in this two-
year project. The report is indebted to Janie White and other parents who first called
attention to the problem. I thank Daniel M. Bessner, Gary Pennell and Thomas L.
Madden in particular for their early reviews. The inquiry and report benefit from the
insights of Alexander Joffe and Susan Goldsmith as well as from the suggestions of
Victor Porlier, Polly Kummel, and Stapley Emberling. Any claims made or conclusions
drawn from many internal and external reviews are my own.
