A People's History of the United States: 1492 to Present

A People's History of the United States: 1492 to Present - Howard Zinn I saw Howard Zinn speak in person. He was amazing. I've always meant to read this. But in browsing it recently, I felt like it was a product of the early 1970s, a litany of minority group grievances, without addressing the broader problems of policy. He was a bombadier in WWII and no pacifist, but this book doesn't seem able to analyze wholesale mistakes of WWII. Please feel free to correct me if I've been browsing in muddy fields of splendour.
