Voices of a People's History of the United States
Here in their own words are Frederick Douglass, George Jackson, Chief Joseph, Martin Luther King Jr., Plough Jogger, Sacco and Vanzetti, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, Mark Twain, and Malcolm X, to name just a few of the hundreds of voices that appear in Voices of a People's History of the United States, edited by Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove. Paralleling the twenty-four chapters of Zinn's A People's History of the United States, Voices of a People's History is the long-awaited companion volume to the national bestseller. For Voices, Zinn and Arnove have selected testimonies to living history--speeches, letters, poems, songs--left by the people who make history happen but who usually are left out of history books--women, workers, nonwhites. Zinn has written short introductions to the texts, which range in length from letters or poems of less than a page to entire speeches and essays that run several pages. Voices of a People's History is a symphony of our nation's original voices, rich in ideas and actions, the embodiment of the power of civil disobedience and dissent wherein lies our nation's true spirit of defiance and resilience.
Howard Zinn is the author of the best-selling A People's History of the United States and many other books, including The Zinn Reader, Artists in Times of War, and A Young People's History of the United States (with Rebecca Stefoff).
Anthony Arnove is the editor of Terrorism and War (by Howard Zinn) and of Iraq Under Siege. An activist and regular contributor to ZNet, his writing has appeared in The Nation, Financial Times, and Mother Jones. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
