Zinn, Howard: A People’s History of the United States

This link above will take you to an online copy of Howard Zinn’s book A People’s History of the United States¬†in its entirety.

There will be multiple readings from this book throughout the semester.

For this week, you need to read¬†Section 11: Robber Barons and Rebels “How the immigration of different ethnic groups…” to “…on trial for their ideas.)”

*Note: In Mozilla Firefox, go to Edit–>Find and type the first few words of the start of the reading (example: “How the immigration”) into the search box to find the start of the reading.

This reading deals with the impact of early 20th century immigration on the American work force and immigrant response to unjust labor practices. This will be valuable context for our readings next week from Bourne and Sinclair.
