An abridged classroom edition of Howard Zinn's bestselling history of the United States, with teaching materials to accompany each chapter.

Like Volume I, each chapter in Volume II provides exercises and teaching materials that allow students to begin a critical inquiry into the American past. Volume II covers the Civil War through the present, with new chapters on the Clinton Presidency, the 2000 elections, and the "war on terrorism."

About the Author:

Renowned historian Howard Zinn 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 the memoir You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train and the 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."
—Eric Foner, The New York Times Book Review

"[A] brilliant and moving history of the American people from the point of view of those who have been exploited politically and economically, and whose plight has been largely omitted from most histories."
Library Journal
