Gut-wrenching. –Jon Stewart

In Voices, Howard Zinn has given us our true story, the ongoing, not-so-secret narrative of race and class in America. –Russell Banks

In these days of misinformation and spin, this book is a refreshing change of pace as we are able to read firsthand what people actually said, not what somebody else wants you to think they said. BlogCritics

Voices should be on every bookshelf. [It presents] the rich tradition of struggle in the United States, from the resistance to the conquest of the Americas in the era of Columbus through the protests today of soldiers and their families against the brutal invasion and occupation of Iraq. –Arundhati Roy
