Why History From Below Matters: An Interview with Howard Zinn
In this 2005 interview, Zinn explained his approach to writing history: “I am going to write about what I think is impor­tant: the social strug­gles of peo­ple, the class struc­ture in the Unit­ed States, the racial prob­lem, the prob­lem of sex­u­al equal­i­ty, the prob­lem of war. Those are the things that are going to guide me.”
