This review is from: Howard Zinn on History (Paperback)
This collection of Howard Zinn's writings on the issue of history, its uses and its perceptions will be welcome reading for those who have sampled his simple yet fascinating writing style in his "A People's History of the United States". Zinn writes in a remarkably accessible manner; he is lucid throughout, and yet he manages to radically re-write conventional history. From the perceptions of Columbus as a hero of history, to the exploitation of the Holocaust, Zinn is like an outsider looking in on a deeply flawed institutional framework of academic history. He corrects distorted notions and misimpressions, remarkably simply, yet totally authoratitively. This book gives a wonderful sample of Zinn's essays and extracts from the 1960s to the present. Owners of "The Zinn Reader", or other collections of his work should, however be aware that much of this collection is reprinted from elsewhere.
