The people knew/know how valuable Howard Zinn's work is. I was very fond of the man. As James Carroll was quoted in the Boston Globe's obit, "How much we all loved him back.". Howard Zinn loved people.

My favorite book, of all books, is
"You Can't Be Neutral on A Moving Train", his autobio. And, yes, it's also a video. But the book is a handbook for social change, starting with the introduction.
