Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove, "Voices of a People's History of the United States,"Wednesday April 26 2006

Voices of a People’s History of the United States is a primary-source companion to A People’s History of the United States. For this new book, Zinn and Arnove have selected testimonies — speeches, letters, poems, songs, memoirs, protests — from our rich history of resistance. Here, in their own words, are Mark Twain, Frederick Douglass, Emma Goldman, Martin Luther King, Jr., Cesar Chavez, Paul Robeson, Helen Keller, Bob Dylan, Angela Davis, Rachel Corrie, and scores of others.

Howard Zinn, a professor emeritus of political science at Boston University, is the author of twenty books, including You Can't Remain Neutral on a Moving Train, a powerful memoir of his life and political activism, and A People's History of the United States: 1492-Present, a history written from the standpoint of those who have been marginalized politically and economically and whose struggles have been largely omitted from most histories.
