Comments and mentions from HN threads:
Ask HN: Books you wish you had read earlier?
jauzeyimam: Howard Zinn—rest in power—is one of the few historians who could 1) detail political arguments and rationales 2) without becoming obtuse in language or overly complex in reasoning and 3) without diminishing in any way the academic integrity of his work.

Ask HN: What books changed the way you think about almost everything?
autodidacticon: US History can be considered a function of large scale popular movements rather than decisions made by individuals (leaders).
