On January 25 the Lit Wits Book Club will meet at 6:30 PM in Room 12/14 at the Baraboo Civic Center, 124 2nd St., Baraboo to discuss the book The Untold History of the United States by Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick.
"The companion to the Showtime documentary series, director Oliver Stone and historian Peter Kuznick challenge the prevailing orthodoxies of traditional history books in this thoroughly researched and rigorously analyzed look at the dark side of American history. The notion of American exceptionalism, dating back to John Winthrop’s 1630 sermon aboard the Arbella, still warps Americans’ understanding of their nation’s role in the world. Most are loathe to admit that the United States has any imperial pretensions. But history tells a different story as filmmaker Oliver Stone and historian Peter Kuznick reveal in this riveting account of the rise and decline of the American empire." ~ goodreads
