The Twentieth Century: A People's History by Howard Zinn
The Twentieth Century: A People's History

History, August 7, 2011

I have been reading the newest version of Zinn's "The Twentieth Century" and once again have been reminded of what an excellent author and researcher he was. This book keeps one's attention and makes the reader start asking questions. If the purpose of reading Zinn is to look at our century through a different set of eyes then he surpassed his mark! "The Twentieth Century" forces one to reevaluate everything we have been taught. It is an excellent way to get students interested in comparative history - read Zinn and then read an American History textbook, debate, discuss,and analyze and Think, probably for the very first time, where you stand!
