Combining lucid, lively prose with scholarly research, Howard Zinn’s book approaches American history from the perspective of traditionally underrepresented groups like women and minorities, as opposed to a more traditional study of great men in power.
“The People Speak,” a documentary based on Howard Zinn’s book will air on The History Channel on this Sunday, December 13th at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time/7:00 p.m. Central time. It features performers such as Marisa Tomei, Josh Brolin, Viggo Mortensen, and Sandra Oh recreating many of the historical moments that Zinn describes in his book.
If you are interested in adopting this book for a class, you may order an exam copy. If you have already ordered the book for a class, please order a complimentary desk copy.
