Item description for Artists in a Time of War (AK Press Audio) by Howard Zinn...
In this new CD, recorded a month after 9/11, America's finest social historian examines the role, and response, of artists in society, and particularly, during wartime. With his distinctive blend of low key wit, expansive knowledge of history, and Sherlockian ability to uncover the real stories of this country underneath the detritus of corporate disinformation and monoculture, Zinn-through the words and actions of the likes of Langston Hughes, Mark Twain, Eugene O'Neill, Ford Madox Ford, and Joseph Heller-explains that pride in one's country comes not from the words and deeds of the government, but from the actions of working people.
Howard Zinn's seminal People's History Of The United States has sold over 600,000 copies.
