About the Author

The visionary historical work of professor and activist HOWARD ZINN (1922-2010) is widely considered one of the most important and influential of our era. After his experience as a bombardier in World War II, Zinn became convinced that there could no longer be such a thing as a "just war," because the vast majority of victims in modern warfare are, increasingly, innocent civilians. In his books, including A People's History of the United States, its companion volume Voices of a People's History of the United States, and countless other titles, Zinn affirms the power of the people to influence the course of events.

Reviews

"The official history is not usually very democratic, so to speak: it reduces the past to meetings and failed meetings, acts of heroism and infamy of a group of selected ones, that as a general rule are white, overly masculine, (part of the) military and wealthy. This book by Howard Zinn is an important contribution to the recovery of memory as democratic space." --Eduardo Galeano

"Professor Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history, and his text is studded with telling quotations from labor leaders, war resisters, and fugitive slaves." --Eric Foner, The New York Times Book Review
