    Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States has sold one and a half million copies and inaugurated a new kind of history book. This is the first of a two-volume young adult adaptation of the history book that continues to influence generations of students young and old alike. But if "people's war" means a war of people against attack, a defensive war-if it means a war fought for humane reasons instead of for the privileges of an elite, a war against the few, not the many-then the tactics of all-out aerial assault against the populations of Germany and Japan destroy that notion.

    A People’s History (in its various editions and adaptations) remains a perennial favorite in courses for future teachers, and in some of these classes, it is the only history book on the syllabus.   For books on what would have been largely called 'The Spanish War.' in its time, I would not have a single book to recommend. I often don't read books head-on, like a total book about the Revolution or about the Civil War. Reading diagonally.

Custer died for your sins. And so, this book would seem to suggest, did every other native victim of colonialism.
