Zinn is an appologist for terrorists. He justifies the actions of terrorists by portraying them as the victim. This is a very naive discourse by someone that has NO grasp of how the world works.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

War of Terrorism
This book will benefit those readers who seek understanding rather than jingoist polemics. Arnove successfully follows David Barsimian who has established a tradition of probing and in-depth interviews of progressive and left intellectuals. Zinn¿s writings remain refreshingly clear and poignant. Arnove¿s interview questions allow Zinn to discuss this views. The book starts with Zinn¿s discussion of the events of September 11th. As a historian, Zinn provides an overview of United States¿ long record of war and state terrorism. The struggle for peace is likely to be long and arduous. At times of war, most ¿intellectuals¿ support state power and the system of social science and humanities scholarship is devoted to serving power interest even in relatively free and open societies such as the United States. Hence, books from alternative perspective, such as War and Terrorism, become indispensable because they provide a glimpse of truth and aid in deciphering the news in the leading journals of our times and the distortions of governments and corporations.
