“This is not history for historical concern, however – this is the history of our present and future, well beyond the Cold War, in the war on terrorism, the war on drugs” Ed Vulliamy, Tutor, The Unspoken Story of the United States is the filmmaker Oliver Stone and historian Peter Kuznick’s riveting point of reference account for the rise and fall of the American history.To probe the dark corners of the administration of 17 presidents, from Woodrow Wilson to Barack Obama, they dare to ask to what extent the US has drifted away from its founding ideals of democracy.Beginning with the bloody repression of Filipino struggle for independence and covering both World Wars, it shows how American administrations have repeatedly intervened in conflicts on foreign land, taking part in secret operations and wars in Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.At various times, he overthrew elected leaders in favour of the right-wing dictators, both economic and political.Examining the atomic America of history, Pierre and Kuznick argue that the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were militarily unnecessary and morally indefensible.They show how the United States has repeatedly raised the nuclear threat and come terribly close to war.They set out how U. S. Presidents have trampled on the Constitution and international law and exposed the recent transformation of the United States into a state of national security.Using the most recent and recently declassified research, the recordings, The Unspoken Stories of History builds a meticulously documented and shocking photo of the American empire, showing how it determined the course of events in the world for the interests of a few throughout the twentieth century and beyond.
