From the author of the classic college campus favorite and perennial seller "A People's History of the United States" comes a short, intense polemic on the political direction of those United States, leading toward what seems to Zinn like perpetual war. "Just War" is based on a lecture given in Rome, where, as Zinn addressed an Italian audience, a public known for its negative opinions of recent American foreign policy, he could be direct about his own feelings. "I come from a country which is at war, as it has been almost continuously: and for that I feel shame." His rousing call to the only "just war," the "war against war," which concludes that "perhaps it will take a combination of factors to end war: but we must all play a part," is a must-read for those who know and trust his work, and, for those concerned about current events and looking for strong and morally driven perspectives, it is an excellent introduction to a great thinker.

Description for reader

Howard Zinn, importante storico americano, e Gino Strada, chirurgo, fondatore di Emergency (associazione umanitaria italiana per la cura e la riabilitazione delle vittime di guerre e delle mine antiuomo), si trovano in sintonia su molte cose, prima fra tutte l'avversione per tutte le guerre. Una importante conferenza tenutasi a Roma, durante la quale hanno tenuto desta l'attenzione di oltre mille persone sull'argomento, è integralmente documentata in questo libro. Le parole di Zinn sono molto semplici, comprensibili per chiunque; le foto che le accompagnano sono di Moises Saman, uno straordinario fotoreporter che combatte la guerra con la macchina fotografica.
