This A People's History of the United States- Paperback is a must-have for any history buff. Written by historian Howard Zinn, it humanizes the Taino identity and provides a unique perspective on American history. It focuses on the stories of the street, the home, and the workplace, rather than the traditional emphasis on great men in high places.
This book covers a wide range of topics, from Christopher Columbus' arrival to President Clinton's first term. It provides insightful analysis of the most important events in our history, including the fight for a fair wage, an eight-hour workday, child-labor laws, health and safety standards, universal suffrage, women's rights, and racial equality.
A People's History of the United States is written in lively, clear prose and is backed by scholarly research. It 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.
