Abstract

In this editorial, the merits of Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States” for history students are explored. A Redmond School Board member described this book as “anti-American” and “socialist.” Other readers of the book think it is important to expose “deficiencies” in America that need to be corrected.
