Ellen Brown's Historical Errors
Ellen Brown's book, The Web of Debt, contains numerous historical errors. Chapter after chapter contains one or more bogus quotations. I survey these errors in this subdepartment of Ellen Brown vs. Gold.
I have a Ph.D. in history. I can say in confidence that Ms. Brown should have had someone with training in history edit her manuscript. The Web of Debt would have been a much shorter book.
You can verify what I write about here in the free online version of the book that Google Books has posted. Access it here.
