Hi all,

I've just submitted for proofing "The Zinn Reader: Writings on Disobedience
and Democracy" by Howard Zinn.

It's been read through with pre-submission work done. Headers stripped;
chapter titles and page numbers present, protected and formatted. Lots of
proper names, some jargon and deliberate misspellings.
746 pages. 

While many Americans are familiar with historian Howard Zinn, particularly
those on the political left, most have limited themselves to reading his
most famous work A People's History of the United States and perhaps a
recent article or two. This volume collects a range of his other
materials--essays, articles, pamphlets, reviews, book excerpts, book
introductions, and the like--written over the past 35 years. Zinn himself
modestly wonders if the collection is "an opportunity, or a punishment," but
fans of A People's History will likely view it as an opportunity to revisit
Zinn's characteristic themes in new settings. These themes--race, class,
war, law, history, and the issue of means versus ends--also serve as the
organizing principle of the book.
