User Review  - Emily Fleming - Goodreads

This book was read as a prerequisite to my United State's History Class, and would not have been a book I would choose myself to read. That said, I can definitely see why it was required reading. It ... Read full review

User Review  - Brandon Achugbue - Goodreads

In all honesty, I wouldn't have taken the time to read A People's History, had I not been condemned to by AP US History. The nearly 700 page book began to take a toll on my mental state after hours ... Read full review
