Zinn, Howard
A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES
Harper & Row, New York, 1980. Uncommon first printing of the revisionist classic, with advance review material slip laid in. Handsome copy of Zinn's remarkably influential overview of American history, comprehensively dismantling national myths and focusing on class conflict and groups traditionally neglected in the standard curriculum - women and African Americans in particular. Controversial upon publication and still controversial after multiple expansions and revisions, Zinn was praised for writing "with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history" (Eric Foner) even as he was criticized for pessimism and propaganda. An enduring and provocative work that forcefully redirected the popular understanding of the American story. 9.25'' x 6''. Original blue cloth, gilt-lettered spine. In original unclipped ($20.00) grey printed dust jacket designed by Blanche Nonoo. Publisher's review slip laid in. [10], 614 pages. Jacket lightly sunned and worn along edges and spine. Tiny stain to front endpaper. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
