|Coming up this week on Riz Khan:|
This Monday, Riz hosts one of America's pre-eminent historians, Howard Zinn, who is most famous for his 1980 book, A People’s History of the United States, which turns traditional textbook history on its head. The book has been updated and re-published several times.
Zinn flew bombing missions for the United States in World War II, an experience he now points to in shaping his opposition to the Vietnam war and the current Iraq war.
On his latest work, A Power Governments Cannot Suppress, Zinn says: "I draw upon historical experience to suggest that the apparent power of governments and corporations is in fact fragile, that it rests on the obedience of the citizenry, and when that obedience is withdrawn, extraordinary change can take place."
Later in the show, Riz talks to Jordan's glamorous Queen Rania about her championship of women's and children's rights.
