    “It’s a wonderful, splendid book—a book that should be read by every American, student or otherwise, who wants to understand his country, its true history, and its hope for the future.” —Howard Fast, author ofSpartacus and The Immigrants

    “[It] should be required reading.” —Eric Foner, New York Times Book Review

    Library Journal calls Howard Zinn’s iconic A People's History of the United States “a brilliant and moving history of the American people from the point of view of those…whose plight has been largely omitted from most histories.” Packed with vivid details and telling quotations, Zinn’s award-winning classic continues to revolutionize the way American history is taught and remembered. Frequent appearances in popular media such asThe Sopranos, The Simpsons, Good Will Hunting, and the History Channel documentaryThe People Speak testify to Zinn’s ability to bridge the generation gap with enduring insights into the birth, development, and destiny of the nation.

    • should be required reading in schools

      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.

    • Distorted History

      This is a very distorted history. Rather than directing anyone to a particular book or books that I know are more accurate, I suggest you read source material - letters, diaries, etc. You'll be surprised!

    • Wikipedia on Howard Zinn

      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.[1] Over one million copies have been sold."
