SUMMARY

"When I began work, five years ago, on what would become the present volume, Voices of a People's History of the United States, I wanted the voices of struggle, mostly absent from our history books, to be given the place they deserve. I wanted labor history, which has been the battleground, decade after decade, century after century, of an ongoing fight for human dignity, to come to the fore. And I wanted my readers to experience how at key moments in our history some of the bravest and most effective political acts were the sounds of the human voice itself. When John Brown proclaimed at his trial that his insurrection was 'not wrong, but right,' when Fannie Lou Hamer testified in 1964 about the dangers to blacks who tried to register to vote, when during the first Gulf War, in 1991. Alex Molnar defied the president on behalf of his son and of all of us, their words influenced and inspired so many people. They were not just words but actions. Beloved historian and activist Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States is widely considered to be one of the most important and influential books of our era. His many other books include the autobiographical You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train, the play Marx in Soho, The Zinn Reader, Artists in Times of War, and Terrorism and War.Zinn, Howard is the author of 'Voices of a People's History of the United States', published 2004 under ISBN 9781583226285 and ISBN 1583226281.
