About the Author

A traves de sus ideas sobre la politica y la historia, Howard Zinn (1922-2010) influyo en varias generaciones de individuos en el mundo entero. Quizas la mas importante de ellas era suidea de que no es posible ser neutral en un tren en movimiento, que la historia no tiene testigos, solo participantes. Despues de ser bombardero en las fuerzas aereas estadounidenses durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Zinn se hizo activista en contra de la guerra y lo siguio siendo por el resto de su vida. Fue profesor de ciencia politica en Boston University durante venticuatro anos. La otra historia de los Estados Unidos (en ingles A People's History of the United States) es una de sus obras mas famosas.

Reviews

"The official history is not usually very democratic, so to speak: it reduces the past to meetings and failed meetings, acts of heroism and infamy of a group of selected ones, that as a general rule are white, overly masculine, (part of the) military and wealthy. This book by Howard Zinn is an important contribution to the recovery of memory as democratic space." -Eduardo Galeano

"Professor Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history, and his text is studded with telling quotations from labor leaders, war resisters, and fugitive slaves." -Eric Foner, The New York Times Book Review
