Description

Product Description

Howard Zinn''s A People''s History of the United States has turned history on its head for an entire generation of readers, telling the nation''s story from the viewpoints of ordinary people―the slaves, workers, immigrants, women, and Native Americans who made their own history but whose voices are typically omitted from the historical record.

The New Press''s Abridged Teaching Edition of A People''s History of the United States has made Zinn''s original text available specifically for classroom use, with a wide range of tools for students to begin a critical inquiry into the American past. The teaching edition includes exercises and teaching materials to accompany each chapter.

About the Author

Howard Zinn was professor emeritus at Boston University. He was the author of numerous books, including A People''s History of the United States, the award-winning Declarations of Independence, and Failure to Quit, as well as a memoir, You Can''t Be Neutral on a Moving Train, and a play, Marx in Soho.

This will give you a whole new view of U.S. history. The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are not what they seem. The wealthy of our colonial times were expert in establishing a nation to replicate Feudal Europe. Safeguards were built in to keep the poor in their place.
Because democracy gave power to the masses, and the wealthy knew they would be outnumbered, large private schools were established by wealthy families to create a middle class. A middle class would more likely be supportive of the wealthy. Names like Stanford, Duke, Cornell, should be familiar.
Bigotry among the lower classes was also part of the design. Keeping these small groups in constant conflict, prevents unification against the upper class.
Early on, it was discovered that war is good for the economy. Most of our wars were for preserving the wealth of the wealthy. The Cold War was essentially a hoax. We were told lies to believe we were at risk. This perpetuated the wartime economy. The Defense Department prospered, as well as industries that supplied it.
The ''Citizens United'' bill is just another piece of evidence supporting Zinn''s thesis. A recent manifestation of this corrupt process is the ''Occupy'' movement.

I did not read the book as I bought it for a first year secondary school history teacher. He reports that it is an excellent addition to his library and will be used along with the standard state approved U.S. history text. The stupid standardized texts that have to be taught from to prepare students for standardized tests leave little room for a teacher to get students to think outside that one book, but the suggested discussion topics and test questions sprinkled throughout the Howard Zinn book may help him do more than teach only for a good score on one standardized test. With "one size fits all" we have gotten our education programs into one hell of a big mess. but that should not come as a surprise to anyone.

Enlightening, easy to read and understand. This is our main History Book for homeschool, I have been using it for years now as its lessons in history allow for deeper debate as the student matures and the questions require thought to answer. The information in the book is usually not found in traditional public school history books. As Zinn states in the book, "A People''s History Of The United States'' is biased to the people and our movements." It is especially helpful in understanding the political and economical situation of the world today. I love the bibliography, it makes doing additional research a breeze.

Great resource for home schooling with this title.
Reviewed in the United States on November 2, 2015
This book is excellent for getting conversations started regarding the work. The discussion questions help especially when the "teacher" is not as familiar with all the events as the book or one would hope to be.
