Product Description

Review


"Oliver Stone and Tariq Ali, two of our most provocative and radical voices, engage in a thought-provoking conversation about history--ripping apart entrenched establishment narratives which have suppressed the
alternative visions we desperately need for our radical social movements and a true participatory democracy."
--Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher, the "Nation"

"Reading "On History" is like watching a fascinating and mesmerizing film . . . a must read if you want to understand the world today."
--Michael Ratner, president, Center for Constitutional Rights

"Oliver Stone asks smart questions about the rise and fall of the United States and its empire in the twentieth century, and Tariq Ali provides smart answers. The result is a provocative book that is sure to
incite controversy and stimulate debate."
--Jon Wiener, professor of history at the University of California at Irvine
