American history told from the bottom up by Howard Zinn himself--and the perfect all-ages introduction to his eye-opening viewpoint, published on Zinn's hundredth birthday
Truth Has a Power of Its Own is an engrossing collection of conversations with the late Howard Zinn and "an eloquently hopeful introduction for those who haven't yet encountered Zinn's work" (Booklist). Here is an unvarnished, yet ultimately optimistic, tour of American history--told by someone who was often an active participant in it.
Zinn's humane (and often humorous) voice--along with his keen moral vision--shine through every one of these lively and thought-provoking conversations. Battles over the telling of our history still rage across the country, and there's no better person to tell it than Howard Zinn.
