"An inspiring autobiography . . . in the tradition of Martin Luther King's 'Letter from a Birmingham Jail.'" -Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air, National Public Radio Beacon Press is proud to publish a new edition of the classic memoir by one of our most lively, influential, and engaged teachers and activists. Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States, tells his personal stories about more than thirty years of fighting for social change, from teaching at Spelman College to recent protests against war. A former bombardier in WWII, Zinn emerged in the civil rights movement as a powerful voice for justice. Although he's a fierce critic, he gives us reason to hope that by learning from history and engaging politically, we can make a difference in the world. "A teacher who committed his politically engaged life to the belief that love is a command to action." -Colman McCarthy, The Washington Post "A powerful, politically electric book from one of the most engaging social critics in the nation." -Jonathan Kozol "Zinn explains his involvement in the struggles for civil rights, against war and in support of organized labor. . . . These are lively tales." -The New York Times Book Review Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States and Three Strikes, lives near Boston.
