1980: A People’s History of the United States

Author/Editor: Howard Zinn

Find it in Collins Library!

The history of America taught in most schools through the 20th Century was that that of generals not soldiers, of bosses not workers, of men not women, of conquerors not  the conquered, of presidents not slaves. A People’s History of the United States is considered revisionist and Marxist nonsense by its detractors, and an inspired, approachable tour de force.

A decade into the 21st Century, A People’s History has become the textbook in some high school classrooms, and has been updated and re-released in numerous editions.
