Known for its lively, clear prose as well as its scholarly research, A People's History is the only volume to tell America's story from the point of view of--and in the words of--America's women, African-Americans, Native Americans, working poor, and immigrant laborers. Here we learn that many of our country's greatest battles--child labor laws, women's rights, racial equality--were carried out at the grass roots level, against bloody resistance.
Revised and updated with new chapters on Clinton's presidency, the 2000 Election, and the "War on Terrorism," A People's History of the United States features insightful analysis of the most important events in our history.
