What the community says about A People’s History of the United States
- "A People’s History of the United States is one of the best books mentioned by Chris Hedges. It's a bestseller and with good reason. The writing is superb as the author obviously knows the subject very well. I was always a bit of a history buff and there were some critical facts I was unaware of. It's also a great coffee table book!"
- "I love reading books that David Bowie recommends. I found A People's History of the United States and found it to be very thought provoking and almost intentionally forthright. I came across this book and almost felt like it was the best recapture of all the important events in the history of the country."
- "This book is yet another liberal attempt to downplay the American system for it's own agenda. You may regard the American truth as passed down by the ages from those who told the true story as it really was, that which is taught through the American school system. Or, you may choose to believe the radical rewritten beliefs of those who merely feel the need to destroy the very system which gave them the chance to defy logic and reality for which was so clearly presented through time. Perhaps this book should be used for entertainment purposes only, filed under fiction where it is better suited."
- "Knowledge is power and reading A People's History of the United States made me feel a true American. Some stories were very sad but it makes me feel strong because am part of the minority group that really suffered for the sake of our country. The book made me see the world in a very different way."
- "If you are looking for a provocative look at the History of the United States this will satisfy you. A good book to debate and talk about with history nerds. You need to look at the information carefully because it is difficult to find support for some of the conjectures. "
- "Since its original landmark publication in 1980, A People's History of the United States has been chronicling American history 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. 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—the fights for a fair wage, an eight-hour workday, 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"

in What are the best nonfiction books"American History is considered to be a book that has made history dry and full of real attractions. This is a book about the history of the greatest power in the world in the journey of more than 300 years of America from a new continent to become the leading power. The United States has so far been experiencing many wars from outside to within, including the Indian War against Europeans, the struggle against black racism race, the struggle of women for equality, the struggle of the working class against capitalism.
