A Heritage of Hypocrisy is well researched and documented but falls short of greatness because of the obvious bias Perni lets permeate the book. While I agree with his views, the only people who will believe the assertions in this book are those who already realize these truths. I know, I know, I am the world’s worst to write about being unbiased. My only excuse is that a review is indeed simply an opinion. However, I digress; the point is that using sarcasm to cut down the idiocy of others while satisfying does nothing to help the Kool-Aid drinkers see the light.

The American flaw of considering everyone but ourselves as savages leads the list of “Why ‘They’ Hate Us.” Next comes the various secret “medical” experiments (people as lab rats and syphilis experiments on African Americans, to name a few), the internment of Europeans, the printing of newspaper articles with pictures of Japanese skulls that were boiled to remove the flesh, and the sheltering and aiding of Nazis.

Although sickening, this book is definitely enlightening and ideally should be required reading for all Americans. However, the infamous and scandalous ability of America to see the flaws (or pretend they do) of all other nationalities while ignoring our own will probably limit the readers to only those who already know some of America’s atrocities.

If you have an open mind and a strong stomach, A Heritage of Hypocrisy will either open your eyes or vindicate your distrust of the government. Either way this is a book that should be read.
