Library Journal calls Howard Zinnâs iconic A People's History of the United States âa brilliant and moving history of the American people from the point of view of thoseâ¦whose plight has been largely omitted from most histories.â Packed with vivid details and telling quotations, Zinnâs award-winning classic continues to revolutionize the way American history is taught and remembered. Frequent appearances in popular media such as The Sopranos, The Simpsons, Good Will Hunting, and the History Channel documentary The People Speak testify to Zinnâs ability to bridge the generation gap with enduring insights into the birth, development, and destiny of the nation.
