Abstract:

"Truth Has a Power of Its Own is an engrossing collection of never-before-published conversations with Howard Zinn, conducted by the distinguished broadcast journalist Ray Suarez in 2007, that covers the course of American history from Columbus to the War on Terror from the perspective of ordinary people--including slaves, workers, immigrants, women, and Native Americans. Viewed through the lens of Zinn's own life as a soldier, historian, and activist and using his paradigm-shifting People's History of the United States as a point of departure, these conversations explore the American Revolution, the Civil War, the labor battles of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, U.S. imperialism from the Indian Wars to the War on Terrorism, World Wars I and II, the Cold War, and the fight for equality and immigrant rights, all from an unapologetically radical standpoint. Longtime admirers and a new generation of readers alike will be fascinated to learn about Zinn's thought processes, rationale, motivations, and approach to his now-iconic historical work."--Amazon.com.

First published in 1980, Zinn's A People's History of the United States presented the course of American history without the usual glorification of the country. In 2007 Zinn and Suarez conducted a series of conversations that covered the course of American history from Columbus to the War on Terror from the perspective of ordinary people-- including slaves, workers, immigrants, women, and Native Americans. In exploring Zinn's thought processes, rationale, motivations, and approach to his now-iconic historical work, Suarez's probing questions show that Zinn's work is as relevant as ever. -- adapted from jacket
