Abstract:

Historian and author of A People's History of the United States Howard Zinn presents a critical view of American expansionism. In this interview, he discusses Andrew Jackson's wars against the Seminole Indians leading to the Florida Purchase, the Mexican-American War, how Native American resistance to white settlers was brutally oppressed, the role of religion in Manifest Destiny, the Spanish-American War, and U.S. imperialism in Latin America. Zinn calls for recognizing our national limitations and shifting America's role as a military superpower to a more humanitarian model-a process that he believes would reduce terrorism threats and focus spending on domestic needs.
