From the author of the classic college campus favorite and perennial seller A People’s History of the United States comes a short, intense polemic on the political direction of those United States, towards what seems to Zinn like perpetual war. Just War is based on a lecture given in Rome, where, as Zinn addressed an Italian audience, a public known for its negative opinions of recent American foreign policy, he could be direct about his own feelings. "I come from a country which is at war, as it has been almost continuously: and for that I feel shame." His rousing call to the only "just war," the "war against war," which concludes that "perhaps it will take a combination of factors to end war: but we must all play a part," is a must-read for those who know and trust his work, and, for those concerned about current events and looking for strong and morally driven persepctives, it is an excellent introduction to a great thinker.

Meet the Author

Moises Saman was born in Lima, Peru, in 1974. At the age of eighteen, he moved to Los Angeles to study photography at UC Fullerton. During his junior year in college, he took his first trip to a conflict zone, traveling to Chiapas, Mexico, where he photographed the aftermath of the Zapatista uprising. After graduating, he interned at Newsday in New York. Shortly thereafter, Saman set out for the war-torn Balkans where he spent a month traveling through Kosovo. Upon returning to New York, he was hired as a full-time photographer by Newsday, where he has concentrated on international assignments including imigration stories in Central America, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the war in Afghanistan, and, most recently, the war in Iraq—from Baghdad. During his assignment in Baghdad, Saman, along with four foreign journalists, was accused of espionage and imprisoned by the Iraqi secret police, the Mukhabarat. He spent eight days in prison before his release and deportation to Jordan. He has since returned to Iraq on multiple occasions to continue his coverage of the ongoing conflict. The winner of two Newsday Publisheris Awards, he recently received second prize in the prestigeous 2003 World Press Photo Award for General News. In 2006, he won first prize from the New York Press Photographers Association and an Honorable Mention form the National Press Association for his Afghanistan reportage.

Gino Strada, a surgeon, was one of the founders of Emergency, the Italian humanitarian society for the care and rehabilitation of civilian victims of war and antipersonnel mines. For over 15 years, he has worked on the front lines of Afghanistan, Iraq, Peru, Bosnia, Djibouti, Somalia,Ethiopia, Eritrea, Rwanda, Cambodia, Sierra Leone, Angola, and Sudan.

Howard Zinn, Professor Emeritus of History at Boston University, is the author of A People's History of the United States and a columnist for the journal The Progressive.
