A PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES

Paperback

   Order Code: HR118    ISBN : 9780062397348

The Indian’s view of Columbus, the Revolutionary War as seen by common soldiers, the black perspective on slavery, a garment worker’s view of working conditions at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company, and the Depression as seen by the man-on-the-street are among the perspectives presented in this “people’s history” in which Zinn calls for greater consciousness of class conflict, racial injustice, sexual inequality, and national arrogance. This edition covers events through 9/11 and the “war on terrorism.”

“…brilliant and moving history of the American people from the point of view of those who have been exploited politically and economically and whose plight has been largely omitted from most histories”
