001006 Howard Zinn - War and Democracy

"Truth is the first casualty of war," a wise politician once said. Since Vietnam, the US has tightly controlled the flow of information to the public. Grenada, Panama, the Gulf War and Yugoslavia were carefully orchestrated Pentagon briefings with high ranking officers in front of maps talking about smart bombs and hard targets. For most of the folks at home all they were getting were official stories. When the war is over, citizens get to hear solemn speeches about sacrifice and how it was all worth it to keep the world safe for democracy.

Howard Zinn, professor emeritus at Boston University, is perhaps this country's premier radical historian. His masterpiece, A People's History of the US continues to sell in huge numbers. Among the many honours he has received are the Eugene Debs Award and the Upton Sinclair Award. His play Marx in Soho is being widely performed.
