A Young People's History Of The United States by Howard Zinn
reviewed by Kie
What is the real story behind the Japanese Americans in camps during World War II? What is the truth behind Columbus and the Indians? What were some of the ways African-American's revolted against racism during the 1950s and 1960s? A Young People's History Of The United States is a well written book. Not only does it talk about subjects rarely mentioned in books, but it sheds light on the standpoints of young people living in some of the hardest times in the history of the United States. This book is certainly for all ages.
