About Howard Zinn

The visionary historical work of professor and activist HOWARD ZINN (1922 2010) is widely considered one of the most important and influential of our era. After his experience as a bombardier in World War II, Zinn became convinced thatthere could no longer be such a thing as a just war, because the vast majority of victims in modern warfare are, increasingly, innocent civilians. In his books, including"A People s History of the United States," its companion volume"Voices of a People s History of the United States," and countless other titles, Zinn affirms the power of the people to influence the course of events. REBECCA STEFOFF is the author of more than 100 nonfiction booksfor children and young adults, and she has adapted several best-sellinghistory books for younger readers."
