Sub titel: The Essential Writings of the "People's Historian"
When the historian Howard Zinn died in early 2010, millions mourned the loss of one of our foremost intellectual and political guides: a historian, activist, and truth-teller who, in the words of the New York Timesís Bob Herbert, ďpeel[ed] back the rosy veneer of much of American history.Ē Designed to highlight Zinnís most important writings, The Indispensable Zinn includes excerpts from Zinnís bestselling `A Peopleís History of the United States'; his memoir, `You Canít Be Neutral on a Moving Train'; his inspiring writings on the civil rights movement; and the full text of his celebrated play `Marx in Soho'. Noted historian and activist Timothy Patrick McCarthy provides essential historical and biographical context for each selection.
