A People’s History of the United States, 1492-Present (Howard Zinn)

zinn“I am often asked how I came to write this book. One answer is that my wife Roslyn urged me to write it, and continued to urge me at those times when, daunted by the magnitude of the project, I wanted to abandon it. Another is that the circumstances of my own life (which, as I now write, has spanned a fourth of the nation’s history-a startling thought) demanded of me that I try to fashion a new kind of history. By that T mean a history different from what I had learned in college and in graduate school and from what I saw in the history texts given to students all over the country.” (excerpt from the afterword)
