Summary, etc.:
"Howard Zinn (August 24, 1922-January 27, 2010) was an American historian, playwright, and social activist. He was a political science professor at Boston University. Zinn wrote more than twenty books, including his best-selling and influential A People's History of the United States. In 2007, he published a version of it for younger readers, A Young People's History of the United States. Zinn described himself as 'something of an anarchist, something of a socialist. Maybe a democratic socialist.' He wrote extensively about the civil rights and anti-war movements, and labor history of the United States"--Wikipedia.
