"A wonderful, splendid book--a book that should be ready by every American, student or otherwise, who wants to understand his country, its true history, and its hope for the future." --Howard Fast

With a new introduction by Anthony Arnove, this edition of the classic national bestseller chronicles American history from the bottom up, throwing out the official narrative taught in schools—with its emphasis on great men in high places—to focus on the street, the home and the workplace.

Known for its lively, clear prose as well as its scholarly research, A People's History of the United States is the only volume to tell America's story from the point of view of—and in the words of—America's women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, the working poor, and immigrant laborers. As historian Howard Zinn shows, many of our country's greatest battles—the fights for a fair wage, an eight-hour workday, child-labor laws, health and safety standards, universal suffrage, women's rights, racial equality—were carried out at the grassroots level, against bloody resistance.

Covering Christopher Columbus's arrival through President Clinton's first term, A People's History of the United States features insightful analysis of the most important events in our history.

Kadınlığınızın onurunu
destek aramayın,
yalvarmayın,
alttan alıp memnun etmeye çalışmayın.
Verip elele,
cesaret alın,
doğrulun bizimle
Birlikte kavgaya katılın bizimle...
Howard Zinn

Vietnam'da bizim savaşı kaybetmemizin nedeni bir davamızın olmayışıydı. Biz zenginlerin kavgasını zenginler için yapıyorduk.
... Sevmediğim bir başka şey de bu kitabın 69. sayfasında Kristof Kolomb'un Kızılderilileri İspanya'ya davet ettiğinin yazılmış olmasıdır. Gerçekte Kolomb onları İspanya'ya kaçırmıştır.
''madenlerde ve başka ağır işlerde çalıştırılarak, kimden yardım isteyeceklerini bilemeden, umutsuz bir biçimde sessizce acı çekerek ölüp gittiler.''.
