  •  I'm hesitant to buy into Zinn (1+ / 0-)

    Simply because he often falls back on the "noble savage," mythology too much. Even when pointing out the horrible atrocities of the "egalitarian," civilizations he will try to dismiss them as "childlike innocence," treating these people as if they were children.

    Zinn, while right in some areas was very apt to source mine when it comes to the nature of European, American and African civilizations and jump to some bold conclusions.
