Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Howard Zinn takes us back to a newly industrialized America, the time of robber barons, tenements bursting with immigrants, and dramatic labor struggles. Zinn’s colorful cast includes Vanderbilt and Carnegie, the young J. Edgar Hoover, and George Bernard Shaw, Ben Reitman, the king of the hobos; Sacco and Vanzetti, whose arrest and execution produced storms of protest around the world, and Emma Goldman, feminist, anarchist, propagandist extraordinaire.

Synopsis:

History. Politics. CD format. Acclaimed historian, writer, and professor Howard Zinn takes us back a century to a newly industrialized America, the time of robber barons and tycoons, of tenements bursting with immigrants, of dramatic and often violent labor struggles. His focus, as ever, is on organizers and agitators like Ben Reitman, king of the hobos; Alexander Berkman, author of Prison Memories of an Anarchist; Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, anarchists whose arrest, conviction, and execution on trumped-up murder charges produced storms of protest; and Emma Goldman, feminist, anarchist, and propagandist extraordinaire for free love and against capitalist exploitation. 2-CD set, 101 minutes.
