Scribner I cant find any corroboration at all for the first chapter:

Chapter 1: COLUMBUS, THE INDIANS, AND HUMAN PROGRESS

Zinn only mentions Bartolome de Las Casas as a possible source and so far nothing i find written by him jibes with what Zinn wrote. Which leads me to believe it is rather slanderous.

An example of the links i am finding is here:

http://elvis.rowan.edu/~kilroy/JEK/07...

Which begs the question...where exactly DID he get his details from?

Looking forward to some comments before i continue reading.
