La antesala perfecta para lanzarse al libro ( )
Patchy quick breeze through American history, feel like Zinn's book doesn't really work as a graphic novel. Picked up considerably in the sections where it drew upon his own experiences (e.g. his time serving in WW2). Would have probably loved this at around 16-17 which I guess is the target market.
A graphic history of the more than two centuries of atrocities committed by the US empire!
Obviously, considering my own biases, I loved this book. It makes me really sad about our imperialist history and even though it ended on a note of hope I don't feel. However, I also know that it's not just the U.S. at fault. It's human greed and capitalism in general. So yeah ... I guess read this if you're anti-war.
The graphic format ultimately seems to be little more than a "Let's Make This Appealing to People Who Don't Like to Read" trope.

The comic book form is a great way of delivering this message, the spreads mix text, cartoons, reproductions of historical documents and photos, making the whole thing visual, dynamic, and absolutely captivating.
I was stunned to discover that I couldn’t force myself past the second chapter. It’s much too hectoring and didactic, even to those already inclined to be interested in reading a “greatest hits of America’s sins”.

Adapted from the bestselling grassroots history of the United States, the story of America in the world, told in comics form Since its landmark publication in 1980,A People's History of the United States has had six new editions, sold more than 1.7 million copies, become required classroom reading throughout the country, and been turned into an acclaimed play. More than a successful book,A People's History triggered a revolution in the way history is told, displacing the official versions with their emphasis on great men in high places to chronicle events as they were lived, from the bottom up. Now Howard Zinn, historian Paul Buhle, and cartoonist Mike Konopacki have collaborated to retell, in vibrant comics form, a most immediate and relevant chapter ofA People's History: the centuries-long story of America's actions in the world. Narrated by Zinn, this version opens with the events of 9/11 and then jumps back to explore the cycles of U.S. expansionism from Wounded Knee to Iraq, stopping along the way at World War I, Central America, Vietnam, and the Iranian revolution. The book also follows the story of Zinn, the son of poor Jewish immigrants, from his childhood in the Brooklyn slums to his role as one of America's leading historians. Shifting from world-shattering events to one family's small revolutions,A People's History of American Empire presents the classic ground-level history of America in a dazzling new form.
