520    This study looked at high school U.S. history textbooks 
       published between the years 1981-2006 to see how they 
       portrayed the Pacific War (1941-1945) to American 
       students. The research methodology known as historiography
       was used to identify what has impacted the content of 
       these textbooks during this time. This study looked at 
       research conducted by academic historians, as well as 
       academic professional journals and magazines, and 
       educational initiatives, all developed and used from 1981 
       to 2006, to see if any, or all of these areas had an 
       impact on the content of U.S. high school history 
       textbooks published during this time 
520    This study concluded that U.S. history textbooks published
       from 1981 to 2006 were impacted mostly by educational 
       initiatives such as; 'A Nation at Risk,' 'the History 
       Standards Movement' and 'No Child Left Behind,' and the 
       concerns that many history teachers had about state-wide 
       high-stakes testing. What academic historians and social 
       studies/history education researchers discovered during 
       this same time period seemed to have little, or no effect 
       on the content of U.S. history textbooks
