I just started re-reading Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States for a book discussion series happening at my local library soon. This is one of those types of books everyone has in their personal library but never gets around to reading because it is so long – nearly 800 pages! This book discussion series is meant to get people to not only read but really think about how the book relates to issues going on in America today. According to Zinn, American history is to a large extent the exploitation of the majority by an elite minority.
Zinn has left a great literary masterpiece behind for the rest of us to enjoy!
