A young people's history of the United States  Cover Image Book Book

A young people's history of the United States / Howard Zinn ; adapted by Rebecca Stefoff ; with contributions by Ed Morales.

Summary:

"Beginning with a look at Christopher Columbus's 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. 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 People's History of the United States"-- Provided by publisher.
