    CHARACTERS à A People's History of American Empire A People's History of American EmpireI highly appreciate Howard Zinn and thought I would know most of what was in the book No in fact there were uite a number of things that were either new or that expanded my knowledgeI have been very interested lately in that fork in the road taken in the 1890's when Teddy Roosevelt William Randolph Hearst and others successfully argued for the imperialism road This book expanded my knowledge of the US war in Cuba and in the PhilippinesAlso included is a fascinating section on Zoot Suits and Jitterbug music and how that music and the subseuent R B music scared authorities due to how it brought

    CHARACTERS à A People's History of American Empire A People's History of American EmpireI didn't put it down because I disagreed with the presentation of history although I do think it is a bit harsh I put it down because it is a large book filled with a single version of historical events While I do not think that the author is anti America or anti American he is certainly anti establishment anti expansionist and rather bitter He served in the military which gives him right to be upset with American foreign policy and military action in my opinion If I sat down with the intention to read about one side of the debate's view of every conflict in which Americans acted like

    CHARACTERS à A People's History of American Empire A People's History of American EmpireHoward Zinn is not afraid to point out the darker moments in American history This graphic novel highlights some of those moments These moments are shared so that readers may be aware of how America has not lived up to its potential in order that they may make changes to improve its future The final message is hopeful as long as citizens remain vigilant The only negative point for me is that the art could have been better

    CHARACTERS à A People's History of American Empire A People's History of American EmpireA real disappointment As a historian probably I was hoping for too much but I thought that the attempt to mix history and graphics could be interesting It was not Graphically the book was bland historically it was highly tendentious and as a work of literature it was poorly written and executed Zinn is not a nuanced historian this is understood from the get go but his flaws in distorting and simplifying a complex past for explicit political purpose are even pronounced here because a graphic history is by necessity simplified Skip this and read Zinn's A People's History of the United States which is a good corrective to the triumphalist nationalist history Americans most often are fed but be sure to leaven even that book with other historical perspectives

    CHARACTERS à A People's History of American Empire A People's History of American EmpireWhen I picked it up I thought it would be a good way to discover Zinn's vision of History since I read bits and pieces of it before but no complete work Well Though being a leftist myself I hope this is not a good example of Zinn's thought All I've read in this book was heavily biased; the premise is clearly that the USA have tried for the last century to establish a world empire through aggressive trade strategies liberation wars etc It is undeniable yes But it is presented through often unsubstantiated claims with facts just thrown to the reader without any background or analysis as with the depression of 1896 called the greatest the US ever known but whose causes are not explained at all These claims and facts are mixed with parallels that are at best uninteresting at worst highly suspicious for instance the anecdote that Sandino's watch was stolen by his murderers jus

    CHARACTERS à A People's History of American Empire A People's History of American EmpireI don't dispute that much of what is presented here is factual I would however dispute that ALL of the facts are being presented I understand that those who believe in radical politics feel that their viewpoints have been massively underrepresented but that doesn't give you a pass on dealing with historical facts that don't support your overarching thesisThis is a polemic on American imperialism rather than an alternative look at American history and that impression is reinforced by the pamphleteer style art that you find in the graphic novelWhile I appreciated hearing Zinn's story personal connections both to WW2 and the Vietnam protest movement I feel like a couple of things happen with those elements of the book1 It gives Zinn an opportunity to make his point without dealing with the whole history of either war2 It is pai

    CHARACTERS à A People's History of American Empire A People's History of American EmpireA lovingly constructed version of Zinn's A People's History of the United States 1492 to Present that leaves me wanting to dive into Zinn's entire bibliography With Zinn as the ever present narrator with guest lectures from the likes of Mark Twain OMG I was thoroughly entertained and informed I had never understood the Spanish American War before for whatever reason But laying it out in a graphic novel format finally brought me understanding along with increased understanding of conflicts in the Philippines and Iran Contra and sooooo many other instances of American assholeryI still think some of the art is a little shitty The layout is A work and the content of course is wonderful I don't know some of the art just looked cheap or underdevelo

    CHARACTERS à A People's History of American Empire A People's History of American EmpireIf you have enjoyed Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States then A People’s History of an American Empire is just as enjoyable Like the latter it will piss you off but in a Howard Zinn appreciating way Appreciating in the sense of an actual account of America’s past and not some anti intellectual writing in service of the State to white wash its history of crimes The content in this book was a 5 the same rating his first book received but I’m giving this one a 3 due to the vibrant comics form I really enjoyed the book and the comic nature but to give a comic related book a 5 would feel I’m doing an injustice to his first book or any 5 rating book for that matter Regardless I highly recommend this book to any lover of history A must have in every man’s library
