Dow Shalt Not Kill, or the Civil Liberties of Napalm
(Corinth), (Black Mountain Press), (1968). An anti-war pamphlet, advocating civil disobedience in thwarting the use of napalm in Vietnam. 4-1/4" x 13", 8 pages; side-stapled; printed in red and blue. Curled at the top inch; near fine. Zinn, a professor of history at Boston University, was an early opponent of the Vietnam War and an advocate of the U.S. pulling out of that war: he wrote Vietnam: The Logic of Withdrawal, published in 1967. In 1980 he published A People's History of the United States, 1492-Present, which started as a counterpoint to, and critique of, the standard histories and narratives of the American nation, and has become more like the standard version of that history than a critique of it, at least within academic circles. The book has sold over two million copies, an unprecedented number for a history book. [#033924] $150
