Overview

A classic since its original landmark publication in 1980, Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States is the first scholarly work to tell America’s story from the bottom up—from the point of view of, and in the words of, America’s women, factory workers, African Americans, Native Americans, working poor, and immigrant laborers. From Columbus to the Revolution to slavery and the Civil War—from World War II to the election of George W. Bush and the “War on Terror”—A People’s History of the United States is an important and necessary contribution to a complete and balanced understanding of American history.

Thank you Howard Zinn: for not being a coward. For telling the truth about our History in the United States through the eyes and experience of the people. So much of our 'History' is edited, and re-invented for ulterior motives. Mr Zinn was a wonderful Teacher and I am deeply grateful that he wrote his books. I want to read everything he has written.

This book presents the injustices the U.S. has been involved in, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with acknowledging it. In fact, I would argue actively ignoring any injustices we have made is dangerous. We are not above scrutiny.

... I would not recommend THIS particular edition if you already own a previous one. The cover is different -- sturdier, more of a card stock than regular paper. There is also a new P.S. Guide at the back of the book. Otherwise, the content is identical to the previous edition. My reasons for the five-star rating and "very good" review headline are because I have to agree with what other reviewers have said: This is the way U.S. History should be taught in our schools.
