 1.  1492-1992: The Legacy of Columbus

Zinn, Howard 1604865016 / 9781604865011 Audio CD

Brand New! 

Discussing the legacy of Columbus, including 500 years of indigenous resistance, “bothers the defenders of Western civilization, those people who have benefited from Western civilization, or who think they will benefit from it in some way. They are bothered by the fact that more and more Americans want to look at what happened then from a different point of view. Because we’ve been looking at it from one point of view for all these hundreds of years, looking at slavery from a white point of view, at Columbus from a white point of view, at women and the issue of sexual equality from the male point of view, looking at history from very specific, limited points of view. People have begun to look at history from the point of view of those people who have been invisible, overlooked, oppressed.” —Howard Zinn, from the CD. In this instant classic, recorded on the eve of the quincentennial, legendary historian Howard Zinn returns to the themes he popularized in his masterful A People’s History of the United States—how we interpret history, and what that tells us about the struggles of the vast majority of folks typically written out of the narrative. With his trademark wit, erudition, and generosity, he stands history on its head, to better illuminate, understand, and act upon the past, present, and future.

 2.  A Young People's History of the United States

Zinn, Howard Paperback

Brand New 

Now in paperback, this is the new, illustrated, and updated single volume young adult edition of Howard Zinn's classic telling of American history. A Young People's History of the United States brings to US history the viewpoints of workers, slaves, immigrants, women, Native Americans, and others whose stories, and their impact, are rarely included in books for young people. A Young People's History of the United States is also a companion volume to The People Speak, Zinn's forthcoming televised series, adapted from A Peoples History of the United States and Voices of a Peoples History of the United States. Beginning with a look at Christopher Columbuss arrival through the eyes of the Arawak Indians, then leading the reader through the struggles for workers rights, womens rights, and civil rights during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and ending with the current protests against continued American imperialism, Zinn presents a radical new way of understanding Americas history. In so doing, he reminds readers that Americas true greatness is shaped by our dissident voices, not our military generals.

 3.  The Zinn Reader: Writings on Disobedience and Democracy

Zinn, Howard, Ph.D. Seven Stories Press 2003 9.78E+12 Trade paperback


No other radical historian has reached so many hearts and minds as Howard Zinn. His A People's History of the United States has gone into more than 25 printings and sold over 400, 000 copies. It is rare that a historian of the Left has managed to retain as much credibility while refusing to let his academic mantle change his beautiful writing style from being anything but direct, forthright, and accessible. Whether his subject is war, race, politics, economic justice, or history itself, each of his works serves as a reminder that to embrace one's subjectivity can mean embracing one's humanity, that heart and mind can speak with one voice. The Zinn Reader represents the first time Zinn has attempted to present the depth, and breadth, of his concerns in one volume. The result is a monumental book, one that will remain, alongside A People's History of the United States, as an essential and necessary Zinn text. The organizational structure of the book reveals the six areas of deep interest in Zinn's work over the last three and a half decades: Race, Class, War, Law, History, and Means and Ends. In each part, Zinn has chosen what he considers to be his best writings on the topic, whether from previously uncollected magazine or newspaper pieces, or from his other books. Zinn has written a new introduction for each essay or article placing it in its historical context. Here, in Zinn's inimitable prose: o the hard fact of racism, in the South and in the North, at the start of the civil rights movement; o Zinn on LaGuardia, the Ludlow Massacre, and Growing Up Class-Conscious; o questioning the very idea of a just war; o LBJ, the CIA, Nixon, and the bombing of Hiroshima; o civil disobedience and the role of punishment in our society; o on Upton Sinclair, Sacco and Vanzetti, and Where to Look for a Communist; o why historians don't have to be objective and how the power of the academy is wasted; o on anarchism, violence, and human nature, and The Spi
