Summary
"Since its publication in 1980, A People's History of the United States has had six new editions, become classroom reading throughout the country, and been turned into a play. A People's History displaces the official versions with their emphasis on great men in high places to chronicle events as they were lived, from the bottom up." "Now, Howard Zinn, cartoonist Mike Konopacki, and historian Paul Buhle have collaborated to retell, in graphic detail, an immediate and relevant chapter of A People's History: the centuries long story of America's actions in the world. Narrated by Zinn himself, this version 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, Vietnam, Central America, the invasion of Cuba, and the Iranian revolution. The book also follows Zinn's own story, as the son of poor Jewish immigrants growing up in the Brooklyn tenements becomes one of America's leading historians." "Shifting from world-shattering events to one family's small revolutions. A People's History of American Empire presents the ground-level history of America in a new medium."--BOOK JACKET
