"Political power," says Howard Zinn, "is controlled by the
corporate elite, and the arts are the locale for a kind of guerilla
warfare in the sense that guerillas look for apertures and
opportunities where they can have an effect." In Artists in Times
of War, Zinn looks at the possibilities to create such apertures
through art, film, activism, publishing and through our everyday
lives. In this collection of four essays, the author of A People's
History of the United States writes about why "To criticize the
government is the highest act of patriotism." Filled with quotes
and examples from the likes of Bob Dylan, Mark Twain, e. e.
cummings, Thomas Paine, Joseph Heller, and Emma Goldman, Zinn's
essays discuss America's rich cultural counternarratives to war, so
needed in these days of unchallenged U.S. militarism.
