Review ë A People's History of American Empire ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Howard Zinn í 7 Read Free download A People's History of American Empire Since its landmark publication in 1980 A People’s History of the United States has had six new editions sold than 17 million copies become reuired classroom reading throughout the country and been turned into an acclaimed play More than a successful book A People’s History triggered a revolution in the way history is told displacing the official versions with their emphasis on great men in high places to chronicle events as. I highly appreciate Howard Zinn and thought I would know most of what was in the book No in fact there were uite a number of things that were either new or that expanded my knowledgeI have been very interested lately in that fork in the road taken in the 1890 s when Teddy Roosevelt William Randolph Hearst and others successfully argued for the imperialism road This book expanded my knowledge of the US war in Cuba and in the PhilippinesAlso included is a fascinating section on Zoot Suits and Jitterbug music and how that music and the subseuent R B music scared authorities due to how it brought together white black and brown youthFinally it was personally interesting to learn of Howard Zinn s role in the efforts to de segregate Public libraries in the Atlanta Georgia area in the early 1960 s and the price he paid

Review ë A People's History of American Empire ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Howard Zinn í 7 Read Free download A People's History of American Empire Ng the way at World War I Central America Vietnam and the Iranian revolution The book also follows the story of Zinn the son of poor Jewish immigrants from his childhood in the Brooklyn slums to his role as one of America’s leading historiansShifting from world shattering events to one family’s small revolutions A People’s History of American Empire presents the classic ground level history of America in a dazzling new for. I don t dispute that much of what is presented here is factual I would however dispute that ALL of the facts are being presented I understand that those who believe in radical politics feel that their viewpoints have been massively underrepresented but that doesn t give you a pass on dealing with historical facts that don t support your overarching thesisThis is a polemic on American imperialism rather than an alternative look at American history and that impression is reinforced by the pamphleteer style art that you find in the graphic novelWhile I appreciated hearing Zinn s story personal connections both to WW2 and the Vietnam protest movement I feel like a couple of things happen with those elements of the book1 It gives Zinn an opportunity to make his point without dealing with the whole history of either war2 It is painfully obvious that Zinn exalts in his friendships associations with Father Berrigan Daniel Ellsworth that being on the stage of history around North Vietnam the Pentagon Papers the sit ins in Atlanta validate his viewpoint on American historyAgain I don t deny that horrific things have been using American power for the benefit of American business but I think it is simplistic to blame the last 120 years of world history on American imperialism

Review ë A People's History of American Empire ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Howard Zinn í 7 Read Free download A People's History of American Empire They were lived from the bottom upNow Howard Zinn historian Paul Buhle and cartoonist Mike Konopacki have collaborated to retell in vibrant comics form a most immediate and relevant chapter of A People’s History the centuries long story of America’s actions in the world Narrated by Zinn this version opens with the events of 911 and then jumps back to explore the cycles of US expansionism from Wounded Knee to Ira stopping alo. When I picked it up I thought it would be a good way to discover Zinn s vision of History since I read bits and pieces of it before but no complete work Well Though being a leftist myself I hope this is not a good example of Zinn s thought All I ve read in this book was heavily biased the premise is clearly that the USA have tried for the last century to establish a world empire through aggressive trade strategies liberation wars etc It is undeniable yes But it is presented through often unsubstantiated claims with facts just thrown to the reader without any background or analysis as with the depression of 1896 called the greatest the US ever known but whose causes are not explained at all These claims and facts are mixed with parallels that are at best uninteresting at worst highly suspicious for instance the anecdote that Sandino s watch was stolen by his murderers just like it was done with Che Guevara 1 who cares 2 how is that relevant 3 what do you imply by this parallel Add to this a good deal of hypocrisy with Zinn telling the story of how he became a radical leftist by seeing the way the US behaved during WW2 but completely omitting the fact that he got his higher education thanks to the GI Bill there s nothing wrong with criticizing the country that educated you but it is honest to present all faces of your relation to said country The absence of context is also uite problematic as it sometimes makes the events look very different from what they were the use of napalm in Royan for instance is presented as being a random act of cruelty while it was part of a general long lasting battle against remaining nazi forces just like in Brest and other cities of France Another example of that it the sinking of the Lusitania of which Zinn says but what the general public didn t know is that the ship was filled with ammunitions and war supply as if it lessened the fact that by sinking this ship the Germans killed close to 1200 civilians Some events are also surprisingly ommitted the Korean War for instance which might have been interesting imperialism wise than Zinn s private life and childhood or the support given to many far right terrorist movements in Europe through the stay behind policy Gladio in Italy for instance or the Grey Wolves in Turkey Finally one of the worst issues of the book in my opinion is the complete lack of critical point of view on those who oppose American imperialism Of course those in the CIA and the Army who massacred civilians staged coups and overthrew legitimately elected governments are evil and despicable But Sandino is shown killing a man just because his man insulted him and the act is presented as a mere scandal that forced Sandino to leave his country that was a fcking murder for Christ s sake not just a scandal Same goes with Khomeini who is uoted saying that the American system is bad because it would give women the right to vote and this opinion goes completely unchallenged by the very men who pretend to be all for eual rights and democracy In short a debatable and heavily biased view of History and historical facts a highly unthrilling writing and an under average drawing that often looks like a really poor imitation of Tardi s drawing
