A classic since its original landmark publication in 1980, Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States is the first scholarly work to tell America’s story from the bottom up—from the point of view of, and in the words of, America’s women, factory workers, African Americans, Native Americans, working poor, and immigrant laborers.

2.5 People's History of the United States
It has to go back to the library; someone else is waiting for it. Honestly, I don't know if I'll ever bother to get it back and finish it. Capitalism has me among its discontents.
