Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

The visionary historical work of professor and activist HOWARD ZINN (1922–2010) is widely considered one of the most important and influential of our era. After his experience as a bombardier in World War II, Zinn became convinced that there could no longer be such a thing as a “just war,” because the vast majority of victims in modern warfare are, increasingly, innocent civilians. In his books, including A People’s History of the United States, its companion volumeVoices of a People’s History of the United States, and countless other titles, Zinn affirms the power of the people to influence the course of events.

REBECCA STEFOFF is the author of more than 100 nonfiction books for children and young adults, and she has adapted several best-selling history books for younger readers.

Highly recommended as a supplement for school libraries 18. Juni 2009
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Author Howard Zinn is a World War II veteran known for his passionate belief that "just war" is impossible because civilians ultimately suffer the most. A Young People's History of the United States is Zinn's compendium offering young people a different point of view on history - from the young laborers who stood up for their rights with the National Child Labor Committee's Declaration of Dependence, to John Tinker, a high school student who took his case for free speech all the way to the Supreme Court and won, to Anyokah, a child who assisted in bringing written language to her Cherokee people. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs, A Young People's History of the United States delivers an empowering message about the American principle of standing up for what's right, even if it makes one a dissident voice in the crowd. A Young People's History of the United States makes oft-overlooked sides of history come alive with direct relevance for young people, and is highly recommended as a supplement for school libraries.

Awesome 1. März 2012
Von EH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Howard Zinn has masterfully created a "story" flow that is kid-friendly and super interesting.

As an African American mom with a 10 year old son, I am thrilled that THIS American history book is one that my 4th grade son cannot put down!
There are just the right amount of illustrations, text and white space on each page that makes it a turn page turner. I have read the "adult" version of this book--A People's History of the United States and find that both of us can now converse about American history in a way that we see OURSELVES (and ancestors) in a more thoughtful & honest manner.

MY SON LOVES THIS BOOK--its made him enthusiastic about history! (And me too.)

Teachers planning on using this in class 7. Februar 2010
Von D. Hoff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Just in case anyone wants to use this in a social studies class, it's really probably the most appropriate for grades 6-8 or 9. It's too basic for my 11th grade US History class, although I did use it for some short information over the Great Depression. If you used it in conjunction with the primary sources from "Voices" it might work for older grades.

Great Book! 25. Januar 2010
Von L. D. McKibben - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
All children should have to read this book, as it looks at history from another perspective that is NOT taught in the textbooks. It is a very enlightening book that teaches students to look at history with a more critical eye. It forces students (and adults) to re-think what they've learned and question what is true and what's not. It's great for a compare and contrast lesson and it works great when teaching the 5 C's of History (Context, Causality, Complexity, Contingency, and Change Over Time).

Ignorance Is Not Bliss 21. Dezember 2010
Von Cptn LazerBeam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have read the original "People's History" and am about to order this version for my 12-year-old son to read. In reading the various reviews here I felt compelled to comment, although my experiences stem from the original title.

I find the review about the author's "mean spirited view of America" to be the most entertaining, and how we "should not teach young people such a negative view of America." Or the other reviews with comments about "snarling at references to Washington and Lincoln," and "George Washington being a capitalist elitist who was fighting to keep the poor down thru the formation of a faux- republic government..." Really shows how we Americans love to believe what we like to believe, and especially tend to believe what we are taught by our teachers in school, and by this mighty government that leads us- and deceives us. Come on people; try thinking for yourselves for once- what's the worst that could happen? Still other reviewers call it 'leftist crap;' so entertaining, and somewhat depressing, too, to realize how close-minded so many people are to anything but their own version of the truth. What one reviewer refers to as Zinn's opinions... I cannot even begin to guess at what he thinks he is referring to. There are for the most part nothing but plain and substantiated facts (with listed sources) laid out in this, and in the full version of "People's History," so it is quite hard to believe that someone could make so ignorant a comment. But then it's also hard to believe what many people will do to hide from the truth in their own lives right here in present day as well.

A brilliant book for any young person who can healthily entertain the possibility that all too often a government's chief goal is to maintain control over the populace, keep them pacified, and ensure that everything it does has the appearance of being 'squeaky clean.' This book shows the US government for what it really is, and truth be told, it is a frightening- and all too accurate if too seldom heard- portrayal of history. A must read for any young person whose parents would like to begin him or her on the way to thinking for himself and perceiving things from other viewpoints.
