The Southern mystique by Howard Zinn( Book )

30 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in English and held by 1,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Have reluctant white southerners themselves exposed the fallacy of "gradualism"? Have reuluctant white northerners and federal law enforcement officers revealed that 'southern' attitudes on race are only exaggerated versions of opinions held by the majority of Americans? . . . Using both historical and contemporary evidence, the author demonstrates that while the 'peculiar' history of the South, its odd speech, and the torpor of its climate are contributing factors, the mystery is essentially man-made." -- Book jacket

Howard Zinn : you can't be neutral on a moving train : a documentary by Howard Zinn( Visual )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We mourn the loss of author, activist, historian and beloved folk hero Howard Zinn, who has been an integral part of the First Run legacy for many years. Howard lent his support to many first run films (many of which he appeared in), the most recent being the Oscar-nominated The most dangerous man in america: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon papers. Howard hid copies of the Pentagon papers for Ellsberg, and he later served as an expert witness for the defense at Ellsberg's trial. In his recollections of Zinn, Ellsberg writes that his friend is the best human being I've ever known [and] the best example of what a human can be. We invite you to learn more about this remarkable man through this new commemorative edition of our best-selling video, featuring over an hour of new bonus materials. This acclaimed film looks at the amazing life of the renowned historian, activist and author. Following his early days as a shipyard labor organizer and bombardier in World War II, Zinn became an academic rebel and leader of civil disobedience in a time of institutionalized racism and war. His influential writings shine light on and bring voice to factory workers, immigrant laborers, African Americans, Native Americans and the working poor. Featuring rare archival materials and interviews with Zinn and colleagues such as Noam Chomsky, You can't be neutral on a moving train captures the essence of this extraordinary man who has been a catalyst for progressive change for more than 60 years. Narrated by Matt Damon. Featuring music by Pearl Jam, Woody Guthrie & Billy Bragg

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 h

"Using dramatic and musical performances of the letters, diaries and speeches of everyday Americans, the documentary feature film The People Speak gives voice to those who spoke up for social change throughout U.S. history, forging a nation from the bottom up with their insistence on equality and justice. Narrated by acclaimed historian Howard Zinn and based on his best-selling books, A People's History of the United States and, with Anthony Arnove, Voices of a People's History, The People Speak illustrates the relevance of these passionate historical moments to our society today and reminds us never to take liberty for granted."--Howard Zinn's website
Three strikes : miners, musicians, salesgirls, and the fighting spirit of labor's last century by Howard Zinn( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Howard Zinn recounts the dramatic tale of the great coal mine strike in Colorado that culminated in the Ludlow Massacre. The story pits immigrant workers against the National Guard, Mother Jones against the Rockefellers, and corporate power against union organizing, a story that is all too familiar today." "With Dana Frank we join a sit-in strike in a Detroit Woolworth's during the Great Depression where young women slept on the floor, played games and sang songs together, and enjoyed the attention of an amused and curious public that vilified the "chain-store threat" long before Wal-Mart." "Robin D.G. Kelley's tale of a movie theater musician strike in New York gets at the heart of what defines a worker. Facing the inevitable dominance of sound movies, the musicians failed even to agree on demands, and could not prevent members of other unions from crossing their picket lines. What happens when jobs are lost to new technologies, and how can labor help?"--Jacket

Howard Zinn on war by Howard Zinn( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Howard Zinn on War includes new and selected writings on a subject that has concerned and fascinated Zinn throughout his career. Here's Zinn on the recent wars against Iraq and in Kosovo, on the Vietnam War, World War II, and on the meaning of war generally in a world that has so far proven unable to overcome the predilection of nations for destroying their neighbors. Zinn explores our warring ways, as well as his own transformation from Brooklyn Navy Yard shipfitter, to bombardier, to anti-war activist."--Jacket
Howard Zinn on history by Howard Zinn( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Howard Zinn began work on his first book for his friends at Seven Stories Press in 1996, a big volume collecting all his shorter writings organized by subject. The themes he chose reflected his lifelong concerns: war, history, law, class, means and ends, and race. Throughout his life Zinn had returned again and again to these subjects, continually probing and questioning yet rarely reversing his convictions or the vision that informed them. The result was The Zinn Reader. Five years later, starting with Howard Zinn on History, updated editions of sections of that mammoth tome were published in inexpensive stand-alone editions. This second edition of Howard Zinn on History brings together twenty-seven short writings on activism, electoral politics, the Holocaust, Marxism, the Iraq War, and the role of the historian, as well as portraits of Eugene Debs, John Reed, and Jack London, effectively showing how Zinn's approach to history evolved over nearly half a century, and at the same time sharing his fundamental thinking that social movements'people getting together for peace and social justice'can change the course of history. That core belief never changed. Chosen by Zinn himself as the shorter writings on history he believed to have enduring value'originally appearing in newspapers like the Boston Globe or the New York Times; in magazines like Z, the New Left, the Progressive, or the Nation; or in his book Failure to Quit'these essays appear here as examples of the kind of passionate engagement he believed all historians, and indeed all citizens of whatever profession, need to have, standing in sharp contrast to the notion of "objective" or "neutral" history espoused by some. "It is time that we scholars begin to earn our keep in this world," he writes in "The Uses of Scholarship." And in "Freedom Schools," about his experiences teaching in Mississippi during the remarkable "Freedom Summer" of 1964, he adds: "Education can, and should, be dangerous."
