Neil Jones

This gift is in honor of the 69th birthday of my father, Larry Jones, retired high school U.S. History teacher.

A People’s History of the United States was required reading from literally day one in his classes. Dad had first learned about A People’s History from a review in The Nation in the mid 1980’s and first obtained his copy from the Stolen Continents History section at City Lights Bookstore during a Summer 1986 trip to San Francisco. He spent his career keeping the curriculum laser-focused on the people’s history and the struggles for dignity and justice.
