    Description`Howard Zinn--there was no one like him. And to hear him speak was like listening to music that you loved--lyrical, uplifting, honest.`--Michael Moore `Zinn's speeches . . . are a joy and an inspiration.`--Marisa Tomei `Collected here for the first time, Howard's speeches come to us at the moment when we need them most: just as a global network of popular uprisings searches for what comes next.`--Naomi Klein Howard Zinn was one of the great orators of the twentieth century and illuminated our history like no other historian. He rarely spoke from notes, and yet could weave rich historical narratives that inspired and captivated audiences. He could grab the attention of even the most jaded students and charm listeners with his sharp humor and personal, engaging style. Many of his speeches have never been published in book form. This first ever collection of his speeches will be an invaluable resource for new generations to continue to discover his work, as well as the millions he moved and informed in his lifetime. Howard Zinn wrote the classic `A People's History of the United States.` The book, which has sold more than two million copies, has been featured in the film `Good Will Hunting,` and has appeared multiple times on `The New York Times `best-seller list. Anthony Arnove wrote, directed, and produced `The People Speak `with Howard Zinn, Chris Moore, Josh Brolin, and Matt Damon, and co-edited, with Howard Zinn, `Voices of a People's History of the United States.`

    Review quote
    `Reading Howard's spoken words I feel that I am almost hearing his voice again. Even in writing its unique appeal comes through -- his stunning pitch-perfect ability to capture the moment and the concerns and needs of the audience whoever they may be, always enlightening, often stirring, an amalgam of insight, critical history, wit, blended with charm and appeal. I've heard Howard speak to tens of thousands at demonstrations, to small groups of homeless people, to activists enduring brutal treatment, and at many other times and places. Always just the right tone and message, always inspiring, a gift to all of us to be treasured.` --Noam Chomsky `Few people changed more lives than Howard Zinn. He changed them as an author, as a play write and as a filmmaker. But he also changed them face-to-face, as a speaker. With ferocious moral clarity and mischievous humor, Howard turned routine anti-war rallies into profound explorations of state violence and he turned staid academic conferences into revival meetings for social change. Collected here for the first time, Howard's speeches -- spanning an extraordinary life of passion and principle -- come to us at the moment when we need them most: just as a global network of popular uprisings searches for what comes next. We could ask for no wiser a guide than Howard Zinn.` --Naomi Klein, author The Shock Doctrine `Howard Zinn -- there was no one like him. And to hear him speak was like listening to music that you loved -- lyrical, uplifting, honest. If you never got to hear him speak, this book will move you in profound ways. Although Howard's 'voice' is no longer with us, his true voice will live on forever. And I know he would love it for each of you to find your voice, too, and to be heard. Perhaps this book will provide you with some inspiration.` --Michael Moore `Howard Zinn was one of us, the best part of us. Enjoy these speeches. Hear his voice. Then hear your own, hear it closely.` --Josh
