A Patriot’s History of the United States.  Recently Dr. Schweikart completed his latest book with Dave Dougherty, A Patriot’s History of the Modern World in two volumes. 

 

He has been on almost all media, from Al-Jazeera to Glenn Beck, from Tavis Smiley to Rush Limbaugh.  Since 2009, he has been a film producer.  His documentary, “Rockin’ the Wall,” about rock music’s part in bringing down the Iron Curtain, appeared on PBS, and his current project, “Other Walls 2 Fall,” featuring Yanni, Clint Black, Busta Rhymes and a heavy metal band from inside Tehran, is nearly finished.
