With an affordable price, this is the perfect audio companion to Zinn's continuing excavation of history from below and what it teaches us about today and tomorrow. History is what's happening, and this is how it sounds.

More About Howard Zinn, Carter Ratcliff, Douglas Dreishpoon, Joe Klibert, Neil Gaiman, Chris Wilbert, Glenn Barr & Kevin Nowlan
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.
