Quando il racconto della storia esce dalle stanze del potere e si sposta nelle strade, nelle case e nei luoghi di lavoro delle persone non illustri, per dare voce ai «vinti» e agli sfruttati, può davvero scuotere le coscienze di intere generazioni. Howard Zinn è riuscito a mostrare l'altra faccia dell'America, quella che non si insegna a scuola o nelle università. A 35 anni dalla prima edizione, e dopo 2 milioni di copie vendute, "Storia del popolo americano" - che il Saggiatore propone in versione integrale, con una traduzione ampliata e aggiornata - continua a essere uno dei libri di storia più letti al mondo. La prosa di Zinn, limpida, appassionata e documentatissima, abbraccia oltre cinquecento anni: dalla colonizzazione genocida delle Americhe all'indipendenza degli Stati Uniti, dalla guerra civile all'imperialismo del XX secolo, fino all'11 settembre 2001…

Quando, negli anni settanta, Howard Zinn si lanciò nel progetto di questo libro, insegnava storia da vent'anni. In base alla propria esperienza, aveva constatato che la storiografia ufficiale ometteva numerosi elementi cruciali della storia statunitense. Da qui l'idea di un testo che sottolineasse le atroci conseguenze dei conflitti armati e il costo umano delle decisioni prese da politici e uomini d'affari: un libro di storia nazionale che desse voce ai "vinti", alle donne, alle minoranze etniche e ai lavoratori.

Suitably grand in scale and far-reaching in its scope, this soundtrack is the first new music from Vangelis since 1990's The City. 1492 stands up well next to Vangelis's classic Chariots of Fire, due to his innate ability to get right inside the material and provide an integral part of the film itself. Vangelis succeeds in capturing the 15th-century mood, mixing rich choral portions with modern elements, and portraying the larger than life character of Columbus, complete with full-range, dynamic sound.

Ask anyone about the significance of the year 1492, and you're almost certain to hear something about Christopher Columbus and the discovery of the New World. But there is also a perspective on 1492 far different than the one most of us know - one that is more complete and complex. A 1492 when there was no country called Spain and no language called Spanish. A 1492 whose biggest event - in the region that would eventually become Spain - was the surrender of the last Muslim stronghold, Granada, with the subsequent Edict of Expulsion that gave Jews three months to either convert to Christianity or leave the Kingdom of Castile and the Crown of Aragon.

American Indian Holocaust and Survival: A Population History Since 1492

American Indian Holocaust and Survival: A Population History Since 1492 (The Civilization of the American Indian Series) by Russell Thornton
University of Oklahoma Press; Reprint edition | March 15, 1990 | English | ISBN: 080612220X | 312 pages | PDF | 5 MB

This demographic overview of North American Indian history describes in detail the holocaust that, even today, white Americans tend to dismiss as an unfortunate concomitant of Manifest Destiny. They wish to forget that, as Euro-Americans invaded North America and prospered in the "New World," the numbers of native peoples declined sharply; entire tribes, often in the space of a few years, were "wiped from the face of the earth."
