Howard Zinn: Class & War In US Society - A Critique (2004)

In 70 minutes of lecture and Q & A, Zinn starts with a brief description of his own personal history, and uses these accounts to set the foundation for analyzing important current issues. He addresses such topics as the class-based society in the US and whose interests it benefits. He criticizes the recent war and subsequent occupation of Iraq and illustrates how it compares to other imperial US occupations over the last century.
