Format: Paperback
Harvey Wasserman has written an impassioned, well-researched history of the post Civil-War period of unregulated industrialization that led to the Robber Barons, the repeated crashes of the "market" and the roots of the Progressive and Labor movements. It is a timely read, too, insofar as we are re-living the widening gap between rich and poor and the re-emergence of a new class of Robber Barons. Highly Recommended.

Format: Hardcover
I first read this book a few years after I got out of high school. When my own daughter was in high school I tracked down a copy so that she would get the truth about US history, not the lies disseminated in public schools' "PC" texts. She took it to school one day, showed it to her teacher, and he had the class do some silent reading while he sat in the back of the classroom reading Harvey Wasserman and the truth. This book is a superb account of the truth of America's past, with all the lies and evils of capitalism and the genocide and war and corruption necessary to make obscene amounts of money for the filthy rich. Emphasis on the word filthy.

Format: Paperback
...if we seek it out with an open mind; and this book, along with classics like Howard Zinn's "People's History", is a wonderful beginning in learning the history of the United States.

I couldn't help being curious about the reviewer who calls the book "horrible" and, in looking at his other reviews, I note that he reserves praise only for the likes of the current President Bush's grand apologist, Karen Hughes and the pathetically ignorant and shrill, Ann Coulter.

The reviewer ironically asserts in his review of the latter's scribbling, "the TRUTH is something that drives left-wing, pinko libs nuts!" I would submit that "the TRUTH" is something that he might strive a bit more honestly to discover.

Harvey Wasserman's text is, as I've noted, a fine place for him to start (since I fairly well persuaded that he never actually read it)!
