    People's History of American Empire GN (2008) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Based on the work by Howard Zinn. Adapted by Paul Buhle. Art by Mike Konopacki. Adapted from historian Howard Zinn's bestselling grassroots history of the United States, the story of America in the world is told in comics form! Now Zinn, historian Paul Buhle, and cartoonist Mike Konopacki have collaborated to retell, in vibrant comics form, a most immediate and relevant chapter of A 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. Softcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11-in., 276 pages, B&W. Cover price $17.00.
