Few works of American history have done more to change the way in which recent generations have looked at their past than Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States. Currently in its 25th printing, Zinn's work presents more than five hundred years of American social and cultural history, going well beyond the wars and presidencies of traditional texts to tell the stories of working men and women. For the first time, Zinn has abridged the original text for classroom use. Questions and activities to encourage critical thinking, topics for writing and discussion, and a bibliography of related materials by educator Kathy Emery accompany each chapter covering American history from Columbus to Clinton.

About the Author:

Howard Zinn was professor emeritus at Boston University. He was the author of numerous books, including A People's History of the United States, the award-winning Declarations of Independence, and Failure to Quit, as well as a memoir, You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train, and a play, Marx in Soho.

Review:

Professor Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history, and his text is studded with telling quotations from labor leaders, war resisters, and fugitive slaves. There are vivid descriptions of events that are usually ignored. . . a reversal of perspectives, a reshuffling of heroes and villains. -- New York Times Book Review
