The brilliant and moving history of the American people for middle grade and high school readers, now revised and updated for the centennial of Howard Zinn's birth.
With new contributions by Latinx scholar Ed Morales and updates throughout by adapter Rebecca Stefoff based on newly available scholarship, here is a new and revised edition of Howard Zinn's bestselling A Young People's History of the United States. Published during the centennial year of Zinn's birth, this new edition features a new chapter, introduction and conclusion by Morales that expands our understanding of Latinx history in the US.
This now-classic work of radical and activist US history gives readers the viewpoints of workers, slaves, immigrants, women, Native Americans, and others whose stories, and their impact, are rarely included in books for young people. Beginning with a look at Christopher Columbus's arrival through the eyes of the Arawak Indians, then leading the reader through the struggles for worker's rights, women's rights, and civil rights during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and ending with the current protests against continued American imperialism, Howard 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.
