Book Daniels slammed as liberal ‘propaganda’ a hot read at libraries

“If your summer reading list includes historian Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States” and you’re planning to borrow it from the public library, get in line. Purdue University President Mitch Daniels’ alleged efforts to keep Zinn and his 1980 volume out of Indiana college classrooms has prompted a surge of interest in the book, and local libraries are purchasing additional copies to keep up with public demand. The book emphasizes violence against Native Americans and class inequality — presenting American history through the eyes of the common people rather than economic and political elites.” (via WWSBT-TV)
