We’ve been hearing authors and actors and fans of Professor Howard Zinn, celebrating Zinn’s tremendous achievement: he has sold one million copies of his revolutionary book, 'A People's History of the United States.’

We go now to a speech Howard Zinn gave at the New School University earlier this month. He talks about bombs, terrorism, the anti-war movement and the Bush administration’s impending war on Iraq.

This is professor Howard Zinn.
