I'm very interested in reading Howard Zinn's "A Peoples' History of the United States". I've heard it's a more honest accounting of American history than most textbooks.
The strongest criticisms I've seen against it are that it doesn't cite any sources (and while the author tries to explain that I still believe it's important to know where the author got his information from) and that the author ignores incidents and facts that don't support his theories.
What I'm looking for, is some kind corrections or counterpoint list for theories/ideas in the book that not might be so accurate. I'm aware of Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen's "A Patriots' History of the United States," but from its reviews it seems like that book is even more skewed than Zinn's.
I realize this may be more of an opinion question and I may be out of luck, but if there's something that can help me decipher truth from an author using some historical facts and discarding others just to get his point across, I would appreciate the heads up.
