The book was written by National Whistleblowers Center Executive Director Stephen M. Kohn. An excerpt from the book is included in the New York Times article, “The Whistle-Blowers of 1777.” Read the article and see primary documents here.
When Stephen Kohn, his brother Michael Kohn, and David Colapinto decided to form the National Whistleblowers Center (NWC), Howard Zinn joined them (as did South African poet and activist Dennis Brutus). As an active support of whistleblowers such as Daniel Ellsberg, Zinn remained a Board member of NWC for the remainder of his life.
