Description:
As a World War II combat soldier, Howard Zinn took part in the aerial bombing of Royan, France. Two decades later, he was invited to visit Hiroshima and meet survivors of the atomic attack. In this short and powerful book, Zinn offers his deep personal reflections and political analysis of these events, their consequences, and the profound influence they had in transforming him from an order-taking combat soldier to one of our greatest anti-authoritarian, antiwar historians. This book was finalized just prior to Zinn's passing in January 2010, and is published on the sixty-fifth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. Simultaneous publication this August in the U.S. and Japan commemorates the 65th anniversary of the USA's two atomic bombings of Japan by calling for the abolition of all nuclear weapons and an end to war as an acceptable solution to human conflict. 'Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history...'--New York Times Book Review 'This collection of essays is a great book for anybody who wants to be better informed about history, regardless of their political point of view.'
--O, The Oprah Magazine 'Zinn collects here almost three dozen brief, passionate essays...Readers seeking to break out of their ideological comfort zones will find much to ponder here.'--Publishers Weekly 'A bomb is highly impersonal. The dropper can kill hundreds, and never see any of them. The Bomb is the memo Please click here to ask a question
