With a new introduction by Anthony Arnove, this updated edition of the classic national best-seller of the book reviews thirty-five years of history and which once again demonstrates why it is an important contribution to a complete and balanced understanding of American history.Since its first major publication in 1980, A Popular History of the United States has been the chronicle of American history, from bottom to top, to launch the official version of the history taught in schools, with its focus on tall men in high places–to focus on the street, home, and workplace.Known for its dynamism, clear prose and clear prose as well as for its research, A People’s History of the United States is the only volume to tell America’s history from the point of view of the — and, in the words of — America’s women, factory workers, African-American, American Indians, the working poor, migrant workers, and so on.As historian Howard Zinn shows, many of our greatest battles–the struggle for a fair wage, at eight o’ clock in the working day, child labor rights, health and safety standards, universal suffrage, women’s rights, racial equality–have been realized at the grassroots level, against the bloodshed of resistance.Covering Christopher Columbus’s arrival by President Clinton during his first term in office, A People’s History of the United States, which was nominated for the American Book Award in 1981, features an insightful analysis of the most important events in our history.
