for its lively, clear prose as well as its scholarly research, A People's History of the United States
is the only volume to tell America's story 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.
If your last experience of American history was brought to you by
junior high school textbooks--or even if you're a specialist--get ready
for the other side of stories you may not even have heard. With its
vivid descriptions of rarely noted events, A People's History of the United States is required reading for anyone who wants to take a fresh look at the rich, rocky history of America.
