Publisher's Summary

Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States, tells his personal stories about more than 30 years of fighting for social change, from teaching at Spelman College to recent protests against war. A former bombardier in World War II, Zinn emerged in the civil rights movement as a powerful voice for justice. Although he's a fierce critic, he gives us reason to hope that by learning from history and engaging politically, we can make a difference in the world.

Critic Reviews

"A warmhearted memoir of a teacher who committed his politically engaged life to the belief that love is a command to action." ( The Washington Post)

This book will get a second listen, no doubt!

I was familiar with Howard Zinn because of _A People's History of the United States_, which I had read excerpts of. _You Cant Be Neutral on a Moving Train_ was the first book of his that I "read" cover to cover. The pros is powerful, raw, and leaves you yearning for more. Zinn's anecdotes are priceless. (I LOVE the story about his tenure decision at BU!) Despite being 20 years old, _Can't Be Neutral_ is still as relevant today as when first published. David Strathairn does an excellent job narrating, with an easy to follow rhythm. My listen time was about 6.5 hours @ 1.15x. You will not be disappointed if you buy this book! Loved it so much, just bought the unabridged version of _A People's History_!

A way to breath again

I a world of horrors and injustice you can take heart. There are stories of perseverance and a light shed on the things in humanity that make us worthwhile.
