More About Howard Zinn


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! 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.

Howard Zinn has published or released items in the following series...

  1. For Young People
  2. New Press People's History

Reviews - What do customers think about Heroes and Martyrs: Emma Goldman, Sacco & Vanzetti, and the Revolutionary Struggle?

Radical History you can Hear  Oct 24, 2001
Two disks. One dedicated to telling Emma Goldman's life story, the other to the case of Sacco & Vanzetti. It's impossible to do justice to either in the space of a single, spoken-word CD, but Howard Zinn tells us enough to make it worthwhile.

These are the stories they didn't tell you in American History classes. The abuse of political activists has a long history in this country, and Zinn drives home two instances of it. If you've already read Living my Life and Prison Memoirs of an Anarchist, the Emma Goldman disk will give you little new information, but it's still fun to listen to. I hadn't read much about Sacco & Vanzetti before, but I found way too many parallels between their case and political prisoners like Mumia abu Jamal and Leonard Peltier.

Zinn is not the most dynamic speaker, but these two lectures won't put you to sleep. Well worth the time & money. I'm going to tape them so I can listen when the freeway gets clogged up.
