A People's History of the United States: 1492-Present (Perennial Classics) by Howard Zinn
A People's History of the United States: 1492-Present (Perennial Classics)

nikitalynn, April 2, 2008

An absolutely profound account of all the in-between stories one never learned in primary education. This book encourages the reader to leap from his or her comfort zone and embrace the reality that history is literally written by the victor. This fact is evident in Zinn's writings of history from another perspective other than that of the rich, prominent, white male however it addresses the life and early times of minorities and women from the earliest colonization of America in the perspective of the "Indians" to late 1900's minority perspectives. I would definitely recommend this text to anyone willing to go out of bounds with a different kind of history lesson; one that will enlighten its reader to indulge oneself in the life and times of the minorities and rights activists who have given their lives to the freedom of all Americans today.
