The Spanish translation of A Young People’s History of the United States — adapted by Rebecca Stefoff, with additions by Ed Morales, and translated by Hugo García Manríquez — brings to U.S. history the viewpoints of workers, enslaved people, immigrants, women, Black people, Latino Americans, Asian Americans, American Indians, and others whose stories, and their impact, are rarely included in textbooks.

Beginning with a look at Christopher Columbus’s arrival through the eyes of the Arawak Indians, then leading the reader through the struggles for workers’ rights, women’s rights, and civil rights during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and ending with the current protests against continued U.S. imperialism.
