It is only right that the history of a nation that was built by slaves, immigrants, workers, and women—and wrested from Native Americans—be told from the point of view of these primary sources. Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States has sold one and a half million copies and inaugurated a new kind of history book. This is the second of a two-volume young adult adaptation of the history book that continues to influence generations of students young and old alike.
A Young People's History of the United States, Volume Two guides the reader through the twentieth century, including the war on terror that is among the forces shaping the United States today.
