Book Overview

The only volume to tell America's story 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. Zinn shows that many of our country's greatest battles were carried out at the grassroots level, against bloody resistance.

The history textbook that should be taught in US schools.

An excellent and brutal recounting of the true foundations upon which the US legacy and cultural mythos is founded. I would recommend this in conjunction with "An Indigenous People's History of the United States" by Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz.

Great book

I am a long time fan of this book but, unfortunately, in this edition (97) the index does not match the abridged text. I was forced to order the 1995 version directly from the publisher for use in my class room.

Winter term is eons away (thank the academic powers that be), but it's never too early to save.

Did you know Thrift Books sells textbooks? I didn't either. But now that I've figured it out, my life will never be the same. Actually, it will be exactly same; I'll just be richer.
