A People's History of the U.S.
I read Zinn again, and it struck me that A People's History... isn't really a people's history; rather, it's another elite history, albeit one delivered from a critical perspective. Will it ever be possible to write a people's history? Mel Gibson has probably shown us about as good of an example of such as we can expect, given elite proclivity for destroying and altering source material. People's histories would necessarily be imaginary.
