Library Journal calls Howard Zinns 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, Zinns 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 Zinns ability to bridge the generation gap with enduring insights into the birth, development, and destiny of the nation.
