Michael Parenti tackles the fascinating
and VERY pertinent topic of "the history of history".

Michael Parenti is an internationally known award-winning author and lecturer. He is one of the nation’s leading progressive political analysts. His highly informative and entertaining books and talks have reached a wide range of audiences in North America and abroad. “A prolific author, a charismatic speaker, and a regular guest on radio and television talk shows, Parenti communicates his message in an accessible, provocative, and historically informed style that is unrivaled among fellow progressive activists and thinkers.” ~ Aurora Online, January 2004

"Michael Parenti is a towering prophetic voice in American life. We need him now more than ever.” ~ Cornel West

“Parenti offers a valuable rebuttal to the drumbeat . . . from the right.” ~ New York Times Book Review

“A penetrating and persuasive writer with an astonishing array of documentation to implement his attacks.” ~ The Catholic Journalist

“Here at home and throughout the world people are fighting back against the forces of wealth, privilege, and militarism ~ some because they have no choice, others because they would choose no other course but the one that leads to peace and justice.” ~ Michael Parenti

Michael Parenti is one of my heroes. He is a much respected lecturer and historian and the author of many excellent books and in this speech he addresses the way the ruling elites manipulates our perception of history and the events that determine history.

This is a very engaging and intelligent lecture and I encourage everyone to watch it. I found it to be one of the fastest 1 1/2 hours I have spent inages.
