Praise for Declarations of Independence
"Zinn's ambitious goal is not only to identify a dominant pattern of American ideas but to determine the soundness of that American ideology by putting the individual axioms on trial.... Declarations of Independence is a timely and important wake-up call to Americans who slumber in the netherworld of ideology."
---In These Times
"It has been Zinn's life work to illuminate the subjectivities others have ignored.... [Declarations of Independence] is a summing up of Zinn's work and thought. It joins his pioneering 1980 work, A People's History of the United States, to form what could be called the essential Zinn."
"In these informal, challenging essays that link the personal to the political, Zinn aims to shake complacency, to challege what he calls 'American orthodoxies' or received opinions about history and government."
