A People's History of the United States
Program #ZINH013. Recorded in Portland, OR on November 20, 1995.
Howard Zinn, professor emeritus at Boston University, was one of this country's most renowned and influential historians. He helped spark a movement to reexamine what we call history. His classic book A People's History of the U.S. reverses traditional perspectives and presents history from the point of view of those who have been largely omitted from traditional texts. Zinn brilliantly reshuffles heroes and villains. The New York Times said the book should be "required reading." Engaging and witty, Howard Zinn is always a joy to listen to.
