Zinn For Beginners describes the life and work of
the most vital historian of our time. Howard Zinn
led a revolution in the writing of history by telling
the story not from the standpoint of conquerors
and rulers, but from the side of the ordinary people
who always bear the brunt of the ambitions of
tyrants. Howard Zinn’s fresh look at history has
earned him a devoted following. This book gives
an overview of where Zinn came from, what events
shaped his life, and walks through the main points
of his major works.
