    The financial crisis that exploded in 2008 isn’t past but prologue. The stunning rise, fall, and rescue of Wall Street in the bubble-and-bailout era was the coming-out party for the network of looters who sit at the nexus of American political and economic power. The grifter class - made up of the largest players in the financial industry and the politicians who do their bidding - has been growing in power for a generation.

    A classic since its original landmark publication in 1980, Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States is the first scholarly work to tell America's story from the bottom up - from the point of view of, and in the words of, America's women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, the working poor, and immigrant laborers.

    Gavin St. Ours says: "Horrible Editing Ruins Experience"
    "Should be required reading for all"

    Would you consider the audio edition of A People's History of the United States to be better than the print version?

    The audio version of this book is not to be compared to the print edition as the audio book takes on a presence uniquely its own.


    Any additional comments?

    This book should be required for all high school students in America
