Abstract:

This consists of twenty-one readings thoughtfully selected by Zinn and Arnove from Voices of a People's History of the United States, the long-awaited primary source companion to Zinn's seminal A People's History of the United States. Among them, a spirited Lili Taylor as a willful Susan B. Anthony objects to her arrest for "knowingly voting without having a lawful right to vote," Paul Robeson Jr. delivers his father's unread statement before the House Un-American Activities Committee from the height of the McCarthy era, and Sarah Jones reads Native American resister and Shawnee leader Tecumseh's stirring appeal to the Osage people to unite against colonial forces.
