This is 20th century American history from a rather socialistic point of view. Howard Zinn is an incredible thinker and a fairly accessible writer who presumes to write on behalf of the suffering m[censored]. He is clear in his bias as a supporter of oppressed minorities and leftist causes. He is also a staunch pacifist, which is interesting given his status as a WWII military pilot. It's a shame that the younger generation today knows so little of the history of the 20th century in the United States. Indeed, even some older Americans do not know of the social conditions that defined our nation then, or choose to ignore it. This book is a few exceptions that US scholars think in their own independent way, not for the benefit of corporate.
It makes you think over 'What is real justice?' Also, it is wholly readable.. Highly recommended.
