A People’s History of the United States

Abridged Teaching Edition

Revised with chapters on the Clinton presidency, the 2000 elections, and the “War on Terrorism”

Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States has turned history on its head for an entire generation of readers, telling the nation’s story from the viewpoints of ordinary people—the slaves, workers, immigrants, women, and Native Americans who made their own history but whose voices are typically omitted from the historical record.

The New Press’s Abridged Teaching Edition of A People’s History of the United States has made Zinn’s original text available specifically for classroom use, with a wide range of tools for students to begin a critical inquiry into the American past. The teaching edition includes exercises and teaching materials to accompany each chapter.
