A PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES Highlights From the Twentieth Century

by | Read by Matt Damon

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Anthology • © 1999

This book is well read but wrongly titled. A better title would be a history of radicalism in modern America. Matt Damon's reading captures the spirit of the text. Like the book, Damon's voice has an edge to it. He expresses the author's outrage regarding the exploitation of certain groups in American history. He also communicates Zinn's admiration for the courage and determination demonstrated by protest leaders. While Damon reads the main text, Zinn reads the introduction and conclusion. His is not an actor's voice, but his reading is evenly paced and authentic sounding. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
