Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
An outstanding look at the United States history that does not candy-coat the actions of the 1%. History is almost always written by the winners but here we have a history that looks at how the 99% were treated and how they changed what they could. The book is filled with many oral histories as well as written. It covers the arrival of Columbus and unlike most high school history books does not fail to discuss the horrors that were brought from Europe to the Americas. It also examines the development of rights throughout the history of the US from the viewpoint of the repressed and finally successful classes. Class warfare is a part of this book as well as the genocide against the native Americans and other indigenous peoples. It examines the formation of the US empire by looking deep into troubling decisions such as the Philippine Insurrection. Excellent book if you are into history.
