"Passionate, iconoclastic, and wrly funny . . . [Zinn] occasionally proves striking in his nearly clairvoyant research. "—Publisher's Weekly Starred Review
Howard Zinn's existence and paintings are the stuff of legend. His People's background of the us has offered over million copies and has altered how we see and train heritage.

Of course the examples came first, and the abstract definition later—much later. So we begin with examples.
He then went on to construct the free group on n generators, and showed (essentially, without using the terminology) that every finitely generated group is a quotient group of a free group of finite rank. ” In a second paper (in 1883) von Dyck applied his abstract development of group theory to permutation groups, finite rotation groups (symmetries of polyhedra), number-theoretic groups, and transformation groups. Although various postulates for groups appeared in the mathematical literature for the next twenty years, the abstract point of view in group theory was not universally applauded.
