Product description

Review

"His writings and speeches, coupled with the example of his brave activism, have inspired and changed the lives of countless people, young and old. Certainly much of his power lies in the seeming contradiction between his unflinching criticism of almost every established idea and his unflinching optimism—what he himself called his 'absurdly cheerful approach to a violent and unjust world.'"—Douglas Lummis, CounterPunch

"Occasioned by the 65th anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, Zinn's final work (completed just before his death in January 2010), combines a discussion of the horrors of atomic warfare with a glimpse at the carnage in Royan, which included the deaths of over 1,000 civilians in one of the first uses of napalm…Zinn's call to reject disproportionate violence in war remains unalloyed and relevant to today's conflicts."—Brendan Driscoll, Booklist

"The late Howard Zinn's new book The Bomb is a brilliant little dissection of some of the central myths of our militarized society."—David Swanson, LA Progressive

"This is in all likelihood the final original book by long-time VFP member and WWII vet Zinn. It has a publication date of August 2010 to mark the 65th anniversary of America's two atomic bombings of Japan. The much-loved, greatly admired Zinn died in January, 2010 at 88, just a month after completing this volume."—Will Shapira, Veterans for Peace

"Zinn's last book is a modest appeal to humanity: War is miserable, and we have to stop it."—Micah Uetricht, In These Times

"It's my favorite…He wrote the book to remind himself and to remind us that anybody can throw the wrench in the machinery, and we often should."—Bill Moyers

"Part history, part memoir, part sermon, The Bomb is meant to wake up citizens, to rouse them to reject 'the abstractions of duty and obedience' and to refuse to heed the call of war."—Jonah Raskin, The Rag Blog
