If you feel like taking your head outta your butt and learning just how screwed up our so-called heroic founding fathers were... read this. It is important to get this point of view because most of us are the little guy who will be crapped on by the country self-proclaimed elites.

Since I have just received the book and have not read it, I offer a description from Wikipedia: "A People's History of the United States is a 1980 non-fiction book by late American historian and political scientist Howard Zinn. In the book, Zinn seeks to present American history through the eyes of working people, rather than political and economic elites. A People's History has become a major success and was a runner-up in 1980 for the National Book Award. It has been adopted for reading in some high schools and colleges across the United States and has been frequently revised, with the most recent edition covering events through 2003. In 2003, Zinn was awarded the Prix des Amis du Monde Diplomatique for the French version of this book, Une histoire populaire des Etats-Unis. Over one million copies have been sold."
This is an incredible book. It contains many of the truths our public schools/government does not want our students to know. This should be required reading for every high school student. The text is very readable and one can skip back and forth between decades or subject. The book contained the best explanation and history of the Vietnam War I've read.
This is a fantastic book. As long as you are willing to learn about our country's past, you will not be disappointed. This book is about truth and the struggles. This is what the history books dont want to include because they are written by those who won the wars.
