Titles By Howard Zinn
Since its original landmark publication in 1980, this Classic Title has been chronicling American history from the bottom up, throwing out the official version taught in schools, with its emphasis on great men in high places, to focus on the street, the home, and the workplace. It tells America’s story from the point of view of America’s women, factory workers, African Americans, Native Americans, working poor, and immigrant laborers. As historian Howard Zinn shows, many of our country’s greatest battles: for a fair wage, an eight-hour workday, child-labor laws, health and safety standards, universal suffrage, women’s rights, and racial equality, were carried out at the grassroots level, against bloody resistance. Beginning with Christopher Columbus’s arrival, this new edition contains two new chapters covering the Clinton presidency, the 2000 Election, and the “war on terrorism.”
Since its landmark publication in 1980, ‘A People’s History of the United States’ has had six new editions, sold more than 1.7 million copies, and become required classroom reading throughout the country. It has triggered a revolution in the way history is told, displacing the official versions with their emphasis on great men in high places to chronicle events as they were lived, from the bottom up. In this title, Howard Zinn, historian Paul Buhle, and cartoonist Mike Konopacki have collaborated to retell, in vibrant comics form, the centuries-long story of America’s actions in the world. It opens with the events of 9/11 and then jumps back to explore the cycles of U.S. expansionism from Wounded Knee to Iraq, stopping along the way at World War I, Central America, Vietnam, and the Iranian revolution.
This title explores the reality of justice, which has always stood in contrast to the rhetoric about equal rights under the law. With sections on the police, the courts, prisons, housing, work, health, schools, and popular struggle, and featuring classic essays by a diverse group of authors.
A classic memoir by Howard Zinn, one of the 20th Century’s most lively, influential, and engaged teachers and activists. Author of ‘A People’s History of the United States’, he tells his personal stories about more than thirty years of fighting for social change. A former bombardier in WWII, Zinn emerged in the civil rights movement as a powerful voice for justice. Although he’s a fierce critic, he gives us reason to hope that by learning from history and engaging politically, we can make a difference in the world.
