Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States, tells his personal stories about more than thirty years of fighting for social change, from teaching at Spelman College to recent protests against war. A former bombardier in WWII, Zinn emerged in the civil rights movement as a powerful voice for justice. Although he's a fierce critic, he gives us reason to hope that by learning from history and engaging politically, we can make a difference in the world.

Reviews

A teacher who committed his politically engaged life to the belief that love is a command to action.--Colman McCarthy, The Washington Post "A powerful, politically electric book from one of the most engaging social critics in the nation."--Jonathan Kozol "A history and a history maker to give us hope."--Alice Walker "A personal favorite. This autobiography by the great activist and historian...provides an eloquent, personal account of the struggles for civil rights and against the Vietnam War, and a universal paean to protest and resistance."--Matthew Rothschild, The Progressive "Zinn explains his involvement in the struggles for civil rights, against war, and in support of organized labor by citing his 'abhorrence of any kind of bullying.' These are lively tales."--Patricia O'Connell, The New York Times "Pick up this book! Start reading it! I guarantee you won't stop. The most influential teacher I've ever had continues to teach us about life and humanity and hope."--Marian Wright Edelman
