Summary
A collection of essays on American history, race, class, justice, and ordinary people who stand up to power. Howard Zinn approaches the telling of U.S. history from an active, engaged point of view, drawing upon untold histories to comment on the most controversial issues facing us today: government dishonesty, terrorism, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the loss of our liberties, immigration, and the responsibility of the citizen to confront power for the common good. This book is an invaluable post-9/11-era addition to the themes that run through Zinn's bestselling classic, A People's History of the United States.--From publisher description
