The Zinn Reader: Writings on Disobedience and Democracyby Howard Zinn
Synopses & Reviews
No other radical historian has reached so many hearts and minds as Howard Zinn. It is rare that a historian of the Left has managed to retain as much credibility while refusing to let his academic mantle change his beautiful writing style from being anything but direct, forthright, and accessible. Whether his subject is war, race, politics, economic justice, or history itself, each of his works serves as a reminder that to embrace one's subjectivity can mean embracing one's humanity, that heart and mind can speak with one voice. Here, in six sections, is the historian's own choice of his shorter essays on some of the most critical problems facing America throughout its history, and today.
Radical historian Howard Zinn has reached the hearts and minds of millions with his direct, forthright, and accessible writing. This work represents the first time that Zinn has attempted to present the depth and breadth of his concerns in one volume, emphasizing six areas that have been important to Zinn's work since the late 1950s--race, class, war, law, history, and means and ends.
