The Man Behind "A People's History:" Howard Zinn

We talk with historian Martin Duberman about his new biography of Howard Zinn, which paints an intimate portrait of a complex and private man.

Historian Howard Zinn's work has become a pop culture touchstone for fans and critics alike. Some credit his book "A People's History of the United States" with changing the way students and scholars study history. Others accuse him of imposing his own agenda on the past. We talk with historian Martin Duberman about his new biography of Zinn, which paints an intimate portrait of a complex and private man.
