I recently finished listening to Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, The Twentieth Century (Abridged) on audiobook.
If you are at all interested the in recent one hundred years of uprising, resistance, and revolution in the U.S., I highly recommend it. It’s an overview, to be sure. But I know that, for me, the U.S. history I learned in school stopped at about 1945. This book gives a great summary of the anti-war movements, the prison strikes, the women’s movement, the anti-nuclear protests, and the parts of the civil rights movement that were not peaceful singing together.
Just, y’know, in case you were wondering how civil uprisings are made.
No special reason …
