Includes a final chapter updating our country’s history to the present moment.

Howard Zinn is the author of numerous books, including his epic masterpiece, A People’s History of the United States, as well as many recent books published by Seven Stories Press: Voices of a People’s History of the United States and Terrorism and War, both written with Anthony Arnove, and The Zinn Reader. He is professor emeritus of political science at Boston University.

Young People's History of the US

Synopsis:

A Young People's History of the United States brings to US history the viewpoints of workers, slaves, immigrants, women, Native Americans, and others whose stories, and their impact, are rarely included in books for young people. A Young People's History of the United States is also a companion volume to The People Speak, the film adapted from A People's History of the United States and Voices of a Peoples History of the United States.

Beginning with a look at Christopher Columbuss arrival through the eyes of the Arawak Indians, then leading the reader through the struggles for workers rights, womens rights, and civil rights during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and ending with the current protests against continued American imperialism, Zinn in the volumes of A Young Peoples History of the United States presents a radical new way of understanding Americas history. In so doing, he reminds readers that Americas true greatness is shaped by our dissident voices, not our military generals.
