Description

Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States has sold over 2.5 million copies and is still required reading in some high school and college classrooms. But its polemic rewriting of American history as a story of oppression is an agenda-driven fairy tale that has no place in academia. In Debunking Howard Zinn, Mary Grabar debunks Howard Zinn’s lies and traces the damage his mega-bestseller has done to American education, culture, and politics.

Regurgitates David Irving Smears

As part of a dramatic introductory build-up Grabar tries to pique the reader's interest by comparing Howard Zinn's deceptive and incompetent work to that of other allegedly fraudulent authors of historical works. She should have done better research as her choice to regurgitate the unfounded smears of the incomparable historical writer David Irving caused me to stop listening to the book. I now must question Grabar's competency. David Irving did not "lose the case" against the propagandist Debra Lippstadt. The court did not hold a trial on the truthfulness of David Irving's writings which is what Grabar is implying. And by the palpable degree of Grabar's polemical disgust in the phrase "Holocaust denier" it is clear that she did not research the David Irving v. Debra Lippstadt case but rather summarily chose it as one of her comparisons because "everyone knows" anyone who would suggest the mainstream narrative of the Holocaust might need to be revisited and reexamined as ever increasing numbers of gross falsehoods are conspicuously protruding. Any critic of historical research who summarily smears another historical writer as a "Holocaust denier" is only condemning herself as an incompetent. Absolutely hate the narration! The woman's voice is condescending, patronizing and sanctimonious.

SMUG - PERHAPS TOO SMUG

Does a good job going through the various inconsistencies with Howard Zinn's work (of which there are many) but gets a little hysterical at times. Shows a Charlie Kirk - like enthusiasm for telling the reader "socialism is bad, mmkay" and gets a little too close to defending slavery just to own the libs. Take it literally, but not seriously.

Zinn destroyed!

A thorough rebuke of Zinnia communist propaganda is long overdue, and this book nails it. this should be required reading in all colleges and high schools.

Excellent Book

I have heard of Howard Zinn and as a History major I have been disheartened and upset how history seemingly is being distorted. This book goes a long way to fight back against the travesty that is Zinn’s writings.

Inaccurate and Pure Right-Wing Propoganda

I read Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States recently, and I picked this up expecting a scholarly debate grounded in a close read of historical documents. I was dismayed to listen to the first chapter where Ms. Grabar starts the chapter speaking about the fictional group ANTIFA (which is widely acknowledged not to be a single group). She goes on to attempt to defend Christopher Columbus and suggest Zinn got it all wrong. At no point in the first half of the rambling chapter does she actually debunk anything or provide any historical analysis of primary sources. In a truly stupefying passage she says that Zinn portrays the Native people as idealistic innocent victims, “communists” and “feminists,” betraying her position not as an academic, but a right-wing nut case. Zinn himself says that we should not portray any one group as innocent victims. She’s dead wrong. This book is pure right-wing propaganda that is meant to further dumb down the American public. I would recommend for the Alex Jones type, but at least Alex Jones is entertaining.

Honesty makes great history

This book is a requirement for actual historians, and everyone else who must know the truth about the communist political radical, and compulsive liar, Howard Zinn. Very concise, clear, entertaining, and above all informatively honest.

Original 1619??

Great narration and back story of the activist/fascist Zinn. Critical for our time and for our future.

Terrible narration.

Awkward sentence and word stress, overly dramatic. Very robotic voice like the automatic messages at robots. Consonant clusters (fl, pl,) and syllables ending in -r sound garbled. Not to be rude but it sounds like the narrator has a speech impediment or is starting to smash syllables together like Joe Biden (senility).

Fantastic takedown of Zinn

breakdown with sources, catching Zinn's plagiarism, half truths and outright lies. it's a shame this work has been adopted by educators so widely and used to shape a generation.

Is this a joke?

Mary Grabar tries to debunk Howard Zinn and his book “The People’s History of the United States” (which is a wonderful book) but ends up embarrassing herself because she can’t rewrite history or refute the facts that make up his book. Zinn’s book is now very popular and the facts in it are, thankfully, common knowledge. But when the book came out in the 80’s neither were true. “The people’s History” was a refreshing read for me 2003. I was one of the millions of American school children who were taught that “in 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue” and discovered America. He was a hero and that was about it. Now it seems that most children are being told the truth. Which in my mind is a good thing. But Mary Grabar conflates children being taught the truth with children being taught to hate America. She would prefer that children continue to learn lies, omit the truth and only praise historical figures.
