Summary
writings by Howard Zinn that show his thinking on the major historical events of the day and his view of the role of the activist historian to shape them. We see Zinn's thinking evolve and also the ways in which his fundamental principles remain unshakable. "It is time that we scholars began to earn our keep in this world," writes Zinn in "The Uses of Scholarship." In "Freedom Schools," about his experiences teaching, in Mississippi during the remarkable summer of 1964, he writes, "Education can, and should, be dangerous." And in 2008, in an essay entitled "Empire or Humanity? What the Classroom Didn't Teach Me about the American Empire," he is still asking the tough question, "Have we reached a point in history where we are ready to embrace a new way of living in the world, expanding not our military power, but our humanity?" (1922-2010) influenced several generations of Americans with his ideas on politics and history, most importantly his belief that we can't be neutral on a moving trainĂ¹that history has no bystanders, only participants. After serving as a bombardier in World War II, Zinn became a lifelong antiwar activist. His experiences in the civil rights and antiwar movements taught him that change happens not because of what our elected leaders decide, but when mass movements force our leaders to act responsibly and justly. Howard Zinn's three most important books are A People's History of the United States {{including the Spanish-language edition, La otra historia de los Estados Unidos, and die young adult, illustrated edition, A Young People's History of the United States), Voices of a People's History of the United States, by Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove, and The Zinn Reader, for which Zinn chose the shorter writings from across the span of his career as a teacher, activist, and historian. It is from that book that the Howard Zinn on... series grew, taking as its starring point die writings Zinn himself chose to represent his lifelong passionate interests in Race, Class, War, Law, History, and Means and Ends.
