Colorful yet Scholarly, Howard Zinn's classic chronicles the American epic story from the bottom up, throwing out the official version of history taught in schools -- with its emphasis on "great" men in high places -- to focus on the street, the home, and the workplace. Many of our country's greatest battles -- the fight for a fair wage, an eight-hour work day, child-labor laws, health and safety standards, universal suffrage, woman's rights, racial equality -- were carried on at the grass-roots level. Covering through President Clinton's first term, A People's History of the United States tells the stories of the men and women involved with power and passion.

With a new introduction by Anthony Arnove, this edition of the classic national best-seller chronicles American history from the bottom up, throwing out the official narrative 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, 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—America’s women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, the working poor, and immigrant laborers. As historian Howard Zinn shows, many of our country’s greatest battles—fights for fair wages, eight-hour workdays, child-labor laws, health and safety standards, universal suffrage, women’s rights, racial equality—were carried out at the grassroots level, against bloody resistance.Covering Christopher Columbus’s arrival through President Clinton’s first term, A People’s History of the United States, which was nominated for the American Book Award in 1981, features insightful analysis of the most important events in our history.
