The Divided States of America

A People's History of the United States: 1492 - Present
Howard Zinn


This well-documented and intensely researched book replaces with plain facts the lies, myths, and propaganda that has for hundreds of years constituted "American history" as it has been recorded and taught in schools. They say history is written by the winners, and the winners since the time of Columbus's "discovery" of America have been members of a ruling elite (Columbus's patrons, British colonial governors, the founding fathers, robber barons, corporation boards) who stole the land, plundered its resources, committed genocide, enslaved Africans, exploited workers, waged wars for profit, and kept the majority of the population off-balance, cowed, and disorganized through unjust laws, political deceit, and deadly force.
