On the next Project Censored Show, Pacifica Radio, join Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips as they review Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick’s The Untold History of the United States. Deeply researched by an American University team of historians, the ten hour documentary series and accompanying book provide a provocative challenge to the status quo of American historical interpretation in the tradition of Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. The thesis of the work challenges official historical narratives, uncovers untold factual histories, and examines the rise of the American empire and national security state from the late nineteenth century through the Obama administration. The series is a welcome contrast to current historiographic trends that mirror many of those in professional journalism, which too often favor institutional biases under the guise of objectivity. Tune in for excerpts from talks of Peter Kuznick, Oliver Stone, Daniel Ellsberg and more.
