About Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove
HOWARD ZINN (1922-2010) influenced a generation with his ideas on politics and history, most importantly that "you can't be neutral on a moving train"—that is, that history has no bystanders, only participants.
ANTHONY ARNOVE is the author of Iraq: The Logic of Withdrawal, editor of Iraq Under Siege and The Essential Chomsky, and coauthor, with Howard Zinn, of Voices of a People's History of the United States and Terrorism and War. He is the codirector of The People Speak with Chris Moore and Howard Zinn.
