Summary: Who will control the past--and the future? In these panoramic interviews (1989-1998), Howard Zinn makes sense of the last century as only he can, tying together themes as diverse as the rise and fall (and rise again?) of the labor movement and the role of arts in American politics. He creates a platform from which to fight for the future and a funny, fast-paced read.

Some of David Barsamian's questions to Zinn include:
    g-left:10px;margin:0px;'>
  • Make the argument against the death penalty, and make it to the grandmother whose grandchild was killed in the Oklahoma City day care center. What would you say to her?
  • How will electronic communication change the archives of the future? Do you see any discernible political implication of email and cyberspace?
  • You've made the astounding comment that objectivity and scholarship in the media and elsewhere is not only "harmful and misleading, it's not desirable." What did you mean?
Zinn also covers the U.S.'s role in the rise and fall of Russia, the origins of corporate power, and modern-day McCarthyism, among other things. Pundits proclaimed "the end of history" after the end of the Cold War, but with this collection, Zinn and Barsamian prove them wrong. History isn't dead--in fact, with luck, it may just be getting going.
