Table of Contents

“At the heart of this wide-ranging comics indictment of American Empire are the terrific human stories of those who have resisted—including wonderful autobiographical episodes from author Howard Zinn’s own courageous and inspiring life.”—Joe Sacco, author of Safe Area Gorazde

“Ingenious in its conception and brilliant in execution, this comics version of Howard Zinn's classic history breathes new life into the stories of people who never thought their stories would be told.  It is urgently necessary for our times: read this book and see how to raise your voice against all the forces that would drown you out.  A modern activist's primer!”—Ben Affleck
