Summary
For much of his life, historian Howard Zinn has been chronicling American history from the bottom up, throwing out the official version taught in schools, with its emphasis on great men in high places, to focus on the street, the home, and the workplace. Known for its lively, clear prose as well as its scholarly research, Zinn's "A People's History of the United States" is the only volume to tell America's story from the point of view of, and in the words of, its women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, working poor, and immigrant laborers. Here we learn that many of our country's greatest battles, labor laws, women's rights, racial equality, were carried out at the grassroots level, against steel-willed resistance. This edition of "A People's History of the United States" features insightful analysis of some of the most important events in this country in the past one hundred years
