Howard Zinn’s A People’s History in a Free Digital Form

Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States is a book that my school’s history department uses as an alternative and supplement to the standard US History textbooks. This morning I learned from the US History Teachers Blog that you can find a free digital copy of the book on the website History is a Weapon. Each chapter is published a separate file so that you don’t have to scroll through 600 pages to find what you want. You can access the book here.

To learn more about Howard Zinn watch his presentation for Authors@Google from November 2008.

Applications for Education
We seem to lose a few copies of it every year to students that don’t return it. Now we have a place where we can find an electronic copy for students to read.

The video provides students and teachers with some insight into the author’s thoughts.
