Containing just the Twentieth Century chapters from Zinn's bestselling "A People's History of the United States, " this reissue is brought up-to-date with coverage of events since 2001, analyzing modern political history such as the Gulf War, the post-Cold War "peace dividend, " and the continuing debate over welfare, the Clinton Presidency, and the War on Terrorism.

Highlighting not just the usual terms of presidential administrations and congressional activities, this book provides you with a "bottom-to-top" perspective, giving voice to our nation's minorities and letting the stories of such groups as African Americans, women, Native Americans, and the laborers of all nationalities be told in their own words.
