Publisher Comments:

Volumes One and Two of the bestselling series now in a single enhanced edition!

Now in paperback with illustrations, this is the new, revised, and updated single volume young adult edition of Howard Zinn’s classic telling of American history. 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, Zinn’s forthcoming televised series, adapted from A People’s History of the United States and Voices of a People’s History of the United States.

Beginning with a look at Christopher Columbus’ arrival through the eyes of the Arawak Indians; then leading the reader through the struggles for workers’ rights, women’s rights, and civil rights during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; and ending with the current protests against continued American imperialism, Zinn presents a radical new way of understanding America’s history. In so doing, he reminds readers that America’s true greatness is shaped by our dissident voices, not our military generals.

Howard Zinn is the author of numerous books, including 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 with Anthony Arnove; The Zinn Reader; and the Spanish-language edition of A People’s History of the United States, La otra historia. He is professor emeritus of political science at Boston University. Rebecca Stefoff is the author of many books for children and young adults, including a biography of the Shawnee chieftain Tecumseh and her adaptation of Ronald Takaki’s award-winning history of Asian Americans, Strangers from a Different Shore.
