Publisher Review

"Zinn has written a brilliant and moving history of the American people from the point of view of those who have been exploited politically and economically and whose plight has been largely omitted from most histories. aEURO|the book is an excellent antidote to establishment history. Seldom have quotations been so effectively used; the stories of blacks, women, Indians, and poor laborers of all nationalities are told in their own words. While the book is precise enough to please specialists, it should satisfy any adult reader." LIBRARY JOURNAL (US) "aEURO|he tells an important and neglected part of the truth" Marcus Cunliffe, THE GUARDIAN "aEURO|he succeeds admirably in his second objective of 'disclosing those hidden episodes of the past when, even if in brief flashes, people showed their ability to resist, to join together, occasionally to win'" Charles Glass, NEW STATESMAN "Professor Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history, and his text is studded with telling quotations from labor leaders, war resisters and fugitive slaves." Eric Foner, NEW YORK BOOK REVIEW
