Here is a selection of Zinn's essays, including recent writings from the Progressive magazine and pieces that appeared in The Zinn Reader. Each one will provoke and enlighten the reader with the wide range of possibilities embedded in the word 'history.' Some of the essays to be included in Howard Zinn on History: - Where to Look for a Communist - The Problem is Civil Obedience - Columbus and Western Civilization - Historian as Citizen - The New History - 'A University Should Not Be a Democracy - How Free is Higher Education? - Je Ne Suis Pas Marxiste' 'It is time that we scholars began to earn our keep in this world,' writes Zinn in 'The Uses of Scholarship,' another of the essays included here. Zinn proposes that those entrusted with knowledge have the same responsibility as everyone else-to be citizens. As Zinn writes in 'Freedom Schools,' an essay included here that describes his experiences teaching in one of the Freedom Schools in Mississippi during the remarkable summer of 1964, 'Education can, and should, be dangerous.'
