Paralleling the 24 chapters of Zinn's A People's History of the United States, Voices of a People's History is the long-awaited companion volume to the national bestseller.

Zinn has written short introductions to the texts, which themselves range in length from letters or poems of less than a page to entire speeches and essays that run several pages and longer. Voices of a People's History is a symphony of our nation's original voices, rich in ideas and actions, an embodiment of the power of civil disobedience and dissent, wherein lies our nation's true spirit of defiance and resilience

"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

Don't know who Tom Shadyac is? As a writer and a director, Shadyac first unleashed Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Nutty Professor remake on the world, and then a string of film fiascoes, but that's all behind him now. A bike accident left him with a host of debilitating maladies and brought him to the verge of suicide, so he took stock of his life and set out on a quest to answer some of life's greatest questions. What's wrong with the world? How do we go about fixing it? Is the fundamental nature of man essentially benevolent or cruel? So he traveled around, enlisting the aid of what he calls "significant minds"--Journalists, scientists, spiritual leaders, scholars-- to understand life's essential questions. "I Am" is his documentary about this quest

The Zinn reader : writings on disobedience and democracy by Howard Zinn( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 877 libraries worldwide
No other radical historian has reached so many hearts and minds as Howard Zinn. 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. Here, in six sections, is the historian's own choice of his shorter essays on some of the most critical problems facing America throughout its history, and today

Howard Zinn tells the story of one of the most important political groups in American history.

Three strikes : miners, musicians, salesgirls, and the fighting spirit of labor's last century by Howard Zinn( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 656 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
A power governments cannot suppress by Howard Zinn( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Korean and held by 572 libraries worldwide
A collection of essays on American history, race, class, justice, and ordinary people who stand up to power. Howard Zinn approaches the telling of U.S. history from an active, engaged point of view, drawing upon untold histories to comment on the most controversial issues facing us today: government dishonesty, terrorism, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the loss of our liberties, immigration, and the responsibility of the citizen to confront power for the common good. This book is an invaluable post-9/11-era addition to the themes that run through Zinn's bestselling classic, A People's History of the United States.--From publisher description
