Publisher Comments:

Howard Zinns books have inspired students and activists of all ages, affirming the power of ordinary people to influence the course of history. In La Otra Historia of Los Estados Unidos, the definitive Spanish-language edition of Zinns classic A Peoples History of the United States, Zinn takes on the standard narrative of American history showing the lie behind the official history - exposing Columbus not as discoverer, but as murderer; the Founding Fathers not as liberators but the foundation of a new and moneyed elite—at the same time championing alternate American heroes, from Bartolomeo de las Casas to Tecumseh to Cesar Chavez, who successfully put a challenge to American imperial power, and won. Now updated and expanded through the Bush presidency, La Otra Historia de Los Estados Unidos reminds us, once again, that Americas true greatness lies not in its military generals, but in its dissident voices.

About the Author

HOWARD ZINN, Americas most popular historian, has introduced four generations of Americans to his views on democracy, civil disobedience, history, and war. Zinns books have sold over two million copies and, in 2009, a film based on two of his books, The People Speak!, aired on national television, bringing his vision to millions more. Zinn died at 87 in 2010, but his books, ideas, and activism live on.
