A classic since its original landmark publication in 1980, Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States is the first scholarly work to tell America's story from the bottom up - from the point of view of, and in the words of, America's women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, the working poor, and immigrant laborers.

From Columbus to the Revolution to slavery and the Civil War - from World War II to the election of George W. Bush and the War on Terror - A People's History of the United States is an important and necessary contribution to a complete and balanced understanding of American history.

    " History is often said to be "written by the winners", but this is history told from a different angle. Anyone who still believes what they read in their high-school history texts, and everyone who watches Fox News desperately needs to re-educate themselves. Reading Howard Zinn's People's History of the United States would be an excellent starting point. Unlike what's offered by high-school and Fox, this story is not a gooey pastry of flag-waving and American-Exceptionalism. It is not a beach-book for the pampered scions of empire. And rich, white, heterosexual, European-Americans - as well as males of all sorts - will probably not like what they read. But I doubt they'll be able to refute it. "

    " Love this book. It provides an amazing perspective on the history of the United States from the point of view of wthe downtrodden and abused. The saying that the winners write the history isn't quite so accurate anymore. It is a great read for an additional perspective on our history. "

    " Some interesting tidbits of history but nothing really surprising if you've read "Lies My Teacher Told Me" plus a couple of Chomsky books and overall it is pretty dry and long. "
