Who will control the past—and the future? In these panoramic interviews (1989-1998), Howard Zinn makes sense of the last century as only he can, tying together themes as diverse as the rise and fall (and rise again?) of the labor movement and the role of arts in American politics. He creates a platform from which to fight for the future and a funny, fast-paced read. [Publisher’s description.]
