4.0 out of 5 stars A good attempt at a difficult subject, April 6, 2008
This review is from: A People's History of the United States (Paperback)
Trying to condense the history of the United States into a paperback book is a daunting, if not impossible, challenge. Howard Zinn manages to pull off this feat by assuming that the reader already has a basic understanding of American History. This leads to some glossing over of topics, but the overall effort is a success. For sure, this is not the history that most of us learned in elementary school (Zinn is particularly harsh on the actions and attitudes of Colonial-era America), but chances are if you're reading this book you looking for a more mature, and possibly challenging, take on the subject.
