Radical historian Howard Zinn writes with a commitment to perspectives of the Left on the subjects of war, race, politics, economic justice, and history itself. He combines class and race analyses to create a more articulate history of the Civil Rights Movement and capitalist America. His internationally acclaimed book A People's History of the United States has gone into more than 25 printings and sold over 400,000 copies. His latest book is The Zinn Reader.
Listen to three excerpts from Zinn's AK Audio version of The People's History of the United States.
Those accustomed to the texts of an earlier generation, in which the rise of American democracy and the growth of national power were the embodiment of Progress, may be startled by Professor Zinn's narrative. From the opening pages, an account of 'the European invasion of the Indian settlements in the Americas,' there is a reversal of perspective, a reshuffling of heroes and villains.... Professor Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history." -New York Times Book Review (www.salon.com/audio/2000/10/05/zinn/index.html
