I argued here http://ocham.blogspot.com/2010/10/universi...-future_21.html that real history cannot be 'open source', and I cited the late Roy Rosenzweig, writing in the The Journal of American History June 2006 http://ecpdata.mdsa.net/sources_secondary/...eig-highres.pdf, who noted then that the article Cultural history of the United States was a stub, with the odd result that a Google search on 'cultural history of the United States' returns the article #1 on the search, even though there is nothing in it, apart from one banal sentence.
That was five years ago, but his observation is still true. There has only been one addition to the article since 2006, made in early February 2011 http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=407478480 . But this was not very useful: it merely serves to link to the Wikipedia article on American Imperialism http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_impe...ral_Imperialism
And what a shitty crappy article that one is too. I have never read anything so rubbishy or biased. The irony is that Wikipedia itself is a form of American cultural imperialism.
 some more shit
