"Historian, activist, and bestselling author Howard Zinn has been interviewed by David Barsamian for public radio numerous times over the past decade. Original Zinn is a collection of their conversations, showcasing the acclaimed author at his most engaging and provocative." "Touching on such diverse topics as the American war machine, civil disobedience, the importance of memory and remembering history, and the role of artists - from Langston Hughes to Dalton Trumbo to Bob Dylan - in relation to social change, Original Zinn is Zinn at his irrepressible best, the acute perception of a scholar whose knowledge and intellect make history immediate and relevant for us all."--BOOK JACKET.
