Howard Zinn

Biography

Save for fellow lefty egghead Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn is more responsible than any other individual for spawning a small army of upset -- if not radical -- youth. Zinn's best-known work, A People's History of the United States, not only questions how the history of the United States has been taught; it turns U.S. history on its head. Rather than taking the traditional view of history (that of the conquering world leader), Zinn gives readers a perspective of history from the vantage point of those tromped upon in the process. Those who only know Zinn for A People's History... are in for a treat, as his lectures challenge conventional thinking while still being fairly easy to digest. Whether you're a questioning youth uneasy with what passes as "conventional wisdom," or a diehard Eugene Anarchist®, you'll come away with something valuable from Zinn's lectures.
