The author is a resident fellow at the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization and the founder of the Dissident Prof Education Project. She taught at the college level for twenty years, including at Emory University. Grabar’s focus is on Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, widely used in U. S. secondary schools. Zinn’s published, HarperCollins, promotes A People’s History as “the only volume to tell America’s history from the point of view of women, workers, minorities, immigrants, and the working class.” The book has been criticized by historians as “an execrable work of pseudohistory, full of mistakes, lies, half-truths, and smears.” Grabar’s critique is a detailed analysis of Zinn’s arguments and sources.
