Howard Zinn – Radical Historian (1922-2010)


If a website entitled ‘Socialist History News’ did not pay any kind of tribute to the great American radical historian, playwright and activist Howard Zinn, who sadly died last week, something would be amiss. Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States (1980) – which no doubt owed something in inspiration to A.L. Morton’s classic A People’s History of England (1938) – will long remain a superb introduction to everything the American ruling class do not want people to know anything about. Howard Zinn was truly an inspiration to many socialists, radicals and democrats internationally, while his writing has surely long won itself a place on any self-respecting dissident historian’s bookshelf and will remain a resource of hope for everyone who wants to see a better world. Condolences to those closest to him from the SHS.
