An undertaking that Oliver Stone sees as his greatest achievement so far, The Untold History of the United States is a monumental history of the last 100 years of American Imperialism and the national security state, from the late nineteenth century through to the Obama administration. It uses freshly uncovered archives and newly declassified material to tell the 'untold history' of a foreign policy, which has determined and manipulated the course of world events across the twentieth century.

This history sheds new light on the forces that were determining events through both World Wars, the Cold War from Ike to Reagan, and political misdemeanours from Nixon to both Bush administrations, as well as the influence of the likes of the Christian right, oil and business interests, and non-elected cabals like PNAC (the Project for the Next American Century) on key policy. It is a history which challenges the foundations of the prevailing popular visions of American Empire.
