Here in their own words are Frederick Douglass, George Jackson, Chief Joseph, Martin Luther King Jr., Plough Jogger, Sacco and Vanzetti, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, Mark Twain, and Malcolm X, to name just a few of the hundreds of voices that appear in Voices of a People’s History of the United States, edited by Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove.

Paralleling the twenty-four chapters of Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, Voices of a People’s History is the long-awaited companion volume to the national bestseller. For Voices, Zinn and Arnove have selected testimonies to living history–speeches, letters, poems, songs–left by the people who make history happen but who usually are left out of history books–women, workers, nonwhites. Zinn has written short introductions to the texts, which range in length from letters or poems of less than a page to entire speeches and essays that run several pages. Voices of a People’s History is a symphony of our nation’s original voices, rich in ideas and actions, the embodiment of the power of civil disobedience and dissent wherein our nation’s true spirit of defiance and resilience lies.

“This is a wonderful book because it provides the voices of the dissidents in their own words. Students are able to see the comprehensive nature of dissent in American history and read the words of the underrepresented. I especially like to assign reading from unknown dissidents, and the students have told me that they have been impressed to see the fire, passion and courage of those who stood up for freedom when it was not the politically popular thing to do.” — Tom Callahan, Iona College

“In Voices of a People’s History of the United States, Howard Zinn has given us our true story, the ongoing, not-so-secret narrative of race and class in America.” — Russell Banks.
