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.

More About Howard Zinn
The visionary historical work of professor and activist HOWARD ZINN (1922-2010) is widely considered one of the most important and influential of our era. After his experience as a bombardier in World War II, Zinn became convinced that there could no longer be such a thing as a "just war," because the vast majority of victims in modern warfare are, increasingly, innocent civilians. In his books, including A People's History of the United States, its companion volumeVoices of a People's History of the United States, and countless other titles, Zinn affirms the power of the people to influence the course of events. REBECCA STEFOFF is the author of more than 100 nonfiction books for children and young adults, and she has adapted several best-selling history books for younger readers.
Howard Zinn lived in Auburndale, in the state of Massachusetts. Howard Zinn was born in 1922 and died in 2010.
