Description de l'ouvrage

2 juin 2009
A Young People's History of the United States brings to US history the viewpoints of workers, slaves, immigrants, women, Native Americans, and others whose stories, and their impact, are rarely included in books for young people. A Young People's History of the United States is also a companion volume to The People Speak, the film adapted from A People's History of the United States and Voices of a People’s History of the United States.
Beginning with a look at Christopher Columbus’s arrival through the eyes of the Arawak Indians, then leading the reader through the struggles for workers’ rights, women’s rights, and civil rights during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and ending with the current protests against continued American imperialism, Zinn in the volumes of A Young People’s History of the United States presents a radical new way of understanding America’s history. In so doing, he reminds readers that America’s true greatness is shaped by our dissident voices, not our military generals.

Biographie de l'auteur

The visionary historical work of professor and activist HOWARD ZINN (1922–2010) is widely considered one of the most important and influential of our era. After his experience as a bombardier in World War II, Zinn became convinced that there could no longer be such a thing as a “just war,” because the vast majority of victims in modern warfare are, increasingly, innocent civilians. In his books, including A People’s History of the United States, its companion volumeVoices of a People’s History of the United States, and countless other titles, Zinn affirms the power of the people to influence the course of events.

REBECCA STEFOFF is the author of more than 100 nonfiction books for children and young adults, and she has adapted several best-selling history books for younger readers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly recommended as a supplement for school libraries 18 juin 2009
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Author Howard Zinn is a World War II veteran known for his passionate belief that "just war" is impossible because civilians ultimately suffer the most. A Young People's History of the United States is Zinn's compendium offering young people a different point of view on history - from the young laborers who stood up for their rights with the National Child Labor Committee's Declaration of Dependence, to John Tinker, a high school student who took his case for free speech all the way to the Supreme Court and won, to Anyokah, a child who assisted in bringing written language to her Cherokee people. Illustrated with black-and-white photographs, A Young People's History of the United States delivers an empowering message about the American principle of standing up for what's right, even if it makes one a dissident voice in the crowd. A Young People's History of the United States makes oft-overlooked sides of history come alive with direct relevance for young people, and is highly recommended as a supplement for school libraries.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Teachers planning on using this in class 7 février 2010
Par D. Hoff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Just in case anyone wants to use this in a social studies class, it's really probably the most appropriate for grades 6-8 or 9. It's too basic for my 11th grade US History class, although I did use it for some short information over the Great Depression. If you used it in conjunction with the primary sources from "Voices" it might work for older grades.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book! 25 janvier 2010
Par L. D. McKibben - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
All children should have to read this book, as it looks at history from another perspective that is NOT taught in the textbooks. It is a very enlightening book that teaches students to look at history with a more critical eye. It forces students (and adults) to re-think what they've learned and question what is true and what's not. It's great for a compare and contrast lesson and it works great when teaching the 5 C's of History (Context, Causality, Complexity, Contingency, and Change Over Time).

Howard Zinn has masterfully created a "story" flow that is kid-friendly and super interesting.

As an African American mom with a 10 year old son, I am thrilled that THIS American history book is one that my 4th grade son cannot put down!
There are just the right amount of illustrations, text and white space on each page that makes it a turn page turner. I have read the "adult" version of this book--A People's History of the United States and find that both of us can now converse about American history in a way that we see OURSELVES (and ancestors) in a more thoughtful & honest manner.

MY SON LOVES THIS BOOK--its made him enthusiastic about history! (And me too.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enlightening 20 novembre 2009
Par K. E. M. Rocha - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a perspective on American history that my children will not be taught in school. His research is thorough, and the book is very well written. My 10 year old enjoys it immensely, and so do I. I wish I could find an enlightened account of California history, too.
