A People's History of the United States
1492 - Present
by Howard Zinn
Howard Zinn has an interesting perspective on the history—he puts himself in the shoes of the underdog (the people) and tells the story of the last 500 years. In this age of the "free agent" it certainly offers a good insight for the readers and for the next generation of leadership. This is not revisionist history, rather, it is describing the "dark side of the moon" that has not been seen before.
