"An inspiring autobiography . . . in the tradition of Martin Luther Kings 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 Peoples 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 hes 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 Peoples History of the United States and Three Strikes, lives near Boston.

Howard Zinn grew up in the immigrant slums of Brooklyn, where he worked in shipyards in his late teens. He saw combat duty as an air force bombardier in World War II, and afterward received his doctorate in history from Columbia University. His first book, "La Guardia in Congress", was an Albert Berveridge Prize winner. In 1956, he moved with his wife and children to Atlanta to become chairman of the history department of Spelman College. He has since written and edited many more books, including A People's History of the United States, SNCC: The New Abolitionist; Disobedience and Democracy; The Politics of History; The Pentagon Papers: Critical Essays; You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train: A Personal History of Our Times; and The Zinn Reader (Seven Stories Press, 1997). The Spanish-language edition of A People's History of the United States, La otra historia de los Estados Unidos, is due to be released later this year by Seven Stories Press under its Spanish-language imprint, Siete Cuentos Editorial. Zinn is also the author of three plays, Emma, Daughter of Venus, and Marx in Soho. Among the many honors Zinn has received, the most recent is the 1998 Lannan Literary Award for nonfiction. A professor emeritus of political science at Boston University, he lives with his wife, Roslyn, in the Boston area, near their children and grandchildren.
