    cinemadaily | Zinn's "People Speak"

    "Proudly, unabashedly radical, with a mop of white hair and bushy eyebrows and an impish smile, Mr. Zinn, who retired from the history faculty at Boston University two decades ago, delighted in debating ideological foes, not the least his own college president, and in lancing what he considered platitudes, not the least that American history was a heroic march toward democracy." reads the two-week old New York Times obituary for legendary leftist historian Howard Zinn. Zinn, whose "People's History" books have revolutionized the field of popular American histories, compiled a number of stories from Americans whose stories are underrepresente...

    cinemadaily | Susan Sontag's "Promised Lands"

    "As we well know, they don't make Susan Sontags anymore—hot, newsmaking ur-intellectuals whose essays were events to equal their subjects, who also wrote knockout fiction, and who was occasionally moved to make inquisitive, brainy, New Wavey films," writes Michael Atkinson in the Village Voice."
