Read full description of the books Voices of A People's History of the United States:Here in their own words are Frederick Douglass, George Jackson, Chief Joseph, Martin Luther King Jr, Plough Jogger, Sacco & Vanzetti, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, Mark Twain & Malcolm X, to name just a few of the hundreds appearing in Voices of a People’s History of the United States, edited by Howard Zinn & Anthony Arnove. Paralleling the 24 chapters of Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, Voices of a People’s History is the long-awaited companion volume to the national bestseller.
For Voices, Zinn & Arnove have selected testimonies to living history—speeches, letters, poems, songs—left by the people who make history happen, but who usually are underrepresented or misrepresented in history books: women, Native Americans, workers, blacks & Latinos. Zinn has written short introductions to the texts, which themselves range in length from letters or poems of less than a page to entire speeches & essays that run several pages & longer. Voices of a People’s History is a symphony of our nation’s original voices, rich in ideas & actions, an embodiment of the power of civil disobedience & dissent, wherein lies our nation’s true spirit of defiance & resilience.
