    This collection of 35 essays by leftist historian and political activist Zinn (emeritus, Boston U.) touches upon themes that will be familiar to fans of his People's History of the United States and other writings, particularly the enduring power of people's movements to resist government violence and oppression, the illegitimacy of war, and the lessons of history for the political activists of today. Among the topics covered in the essays are the Seattle General Strike of 1919, class conflict in early American history, the unlearned lessons of the Hiroshima bomb, criticism of the current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Henry David Thoreau and civil disobedience, the late Catholic priest and antiwar activist Philip Berrigan, and immigration.

    Howard Zinn's life and work are the stuff of legend. His People's History of the United States has sold over two million copies and has altered how we see and teach history. A hero in word and deed, Zinn's views on freedom, fairness, history, democracy, and our own human potential are educational and transformative. In few places is the genius of his voice more crystallized and accessible than in the dozens of articles he penned for The Progressive magazine from 1980 to 2009, offered together here in book form for the first time. Whether critiquing the Barack Obama White House, the sorry state of US government and politics, the tragic futility of US military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq, or the plight of working people in an economy rigged to benefit the rich and powerful, Zinn's historical clarity, unflappable optimism, and unshakable questions reverberate throughout The Historic Unfulfilled Promise: "Have our political leaders gone mad?" "What kind of country do we want to live in?" "What is national security?" "Do we have a right to occupy a country when the people of that country obviously do not want us there?" "Is not war itself terrorism?" "Should we not begin to consider all children, everywhere, as our own?" "Has the will of the people been followed?" The Historic Unfulfilled Promise is a genuine work of conscience, rich in ideas, charged with energy; an invaluable introduction for the uninitiated and a must-have for Zinn's fans."Zinn persists with his optimism and sometimes proves astounding in his almost clairvoyant analysis... His call to action will strike a chord with a younger generation of occupiers."?Publisher's Weekly

    A handsome box set collection of the four previously released AK Audio Howard Zinn CDs, together with a deluxe booklet featuring a previously unpublished interview with Professor Zinn, as well as tributes and commentary from his friends, colleagues and comrades.

With an affordable price, this is the perfect audio companion to Zinn’s continuing excavation of history from below and what it teaches us about today and tomorrow. History is what’s happening, and this is how it sounds.

    Widely considered to be one of the most important and influential books of our era. Zinn writes of this work,'...I wanted the voices of struggle, mostly absent from our history books, to be given the place they deserve. I wanted labor history, which has been the battleground, decade after decade, century after century, of an ongoing fight for human dignity, to come to the fore. And I wanted my readers to experience how at key momentsin our history some of the bravest and most effective political acts were the sounds of the human voice itself.
