By AJ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Arcs over such a massive timeline, zooming in (giving detail) and out (fast-forwarding) where appropriate, thus maintaining the uniqueness of the approach, i.e. it avoids sounding like most other history (text)books.

Preference given to personal interpretations of representative individuals (would-be unknowns quoted directly), or to key historical figures, at various periods of the country's history.

A must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A people's history indeed 19 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Exactly what is says, a people's history, biased, so what, after the doctored rich class favored history we have had for decades even centuries it balances the bias and more truthfully so.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterclass of Class Struggle 2 May 2014

The author renders his subject with passion and eloquence, seldom seen in the dry text books of school and college libraries.

Read and enjoy

4.0 out of 5 stars Radical History 3 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book gives a radical view of American history which challenges preconceptions. The author does clearly aim to give a balanced view, but does not always successfully achieve this. The quality of research and writing is excellent, but it straddles the borderline between history and polemic, sometimes uncomfortably.
