Bush and the "War on Terror" – A People's History of the United States is an important and necessary contribution to a complete and balanced understanding of American history. A People's History of the United States.

The core part of any history book is obviously history. In the first three chapters of the book, Zinn presents the major historical facts of the first 250 years of American history starting from when Christopher Columbus’s Niña, Pinta, and Santa Maria landed in the Bahamas on October 12, 1492. The reason that this book might be better titled A Proletarian’s History of the United States is that Zinn’s main focus on the book besides the actual history is the effect of the history on the common people and the workers, or proletarians as Marx and Engels referred to them.

Comments to eBook A People's History of the United States

Had the great honor to have had a semester of U.S. History with Dr. Zinn, my freshman year of college. I was the only African American student in the class, and I was affected greatly from hearing him speak daily on the intricacies of what was and what wasn't in the seminal history of the country: that which is the congealed narrative of a master race or that of those affected by the impudence of power. Moreso, power run amok. Howard was my mentor, and my friend. Don't buy a summary. Read the book. I still have the textbook he assigned me.

A wonderful book that will change how you see the world, much like Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee did for those of us who grew up watching Hollywood westerns. It presents history of farmers, slaves and factory workers in a way that is different, more human, and more believable than what we were taught by the public schools. One of my top 5 books, and I've read many hundreds.

A more honest, if less glorified story of the United States, including lots of things our country would rather you didn't hear about. It will never pass the local School Board's muster, which is why your should read it.

This book is so important for the national discussion. And, this book is a great contribution to the "People's" actual history of the United States. I just received this book as a resource - I could not put it down. I took a break to see if Howard Zinn is alive and how I might meet him. Unfortunately, all that we have are his Books, Plays, Interviews and Reflections. Being a playwright has certainly influenced his historical writings and style in this book. History is a story and he tells that story with great detail and courage. In addition, his truth is the truth of all of America since his perspective is from the viewpoint of the Indians when Columbus landed, the factory workers, women, African-Americans... This is a must read.

Reads like a novel. I hated social studies I’m high school and I’ve developed a new found love of history. This book made history come alive and was far more authentic than what is taught in a traditional social studies class.

I am a retired educator with two Masters degrees from reputable universities. As broad as my education has been, I would not call myself truly well-educated without having read this classic adjunct to the typical canon presented at most institutions of higher learning. I have bought multiple copies over the years, as I tend to give them away to people who I think may be ready to open themselves to one of the most well-documented and unflinching historical records of the United States.
Wrathmaster
Good read. It touches topics a bit taboo in nationalist schools, so if nothing else, its a critical perspective of our country. Good read.
This is the history of the US that should be taught in all schools. This is an elegant read with the truth being told about the US and its history rather than the glossed over versions taught in our schools in the past and today. Howard Zinn is a master in his research and his writing. It is long but worth every minute spent reading it.
