Review quote

"Professor Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history, and his text is studded with telling quotations from labor leaders, war resisters, and fugitive slaves. There are vivid descriptions of events that are usually ignored ... A reversal of perspectives, a reshuffling of heroes and villains." --Eric Foner, "The New York Times Book Review" "[A] brilliant and moving history of the American people from the point of view of those who have been exploited politically and economically, and whose plight has been largely omitted from most histories." --"Library Journal"
