schema:description"In this companion to the ten-part documentary series the authors outline a "people's history" of the American empire and its rise and decline, aided by the latest archival findings and recently declassified documents and scholarly research. They challenge the prevailing orthodoxies of traditional history books in this look at the dark side of American history. They introduce readers to a pantheon of heroes and villains as they show not only how far the U.S. has drifted from its democratic traditions but the powerful forces that have struggle to get us back on track. They argue that the U.S. must face its troubling history honestly and forthrightly in order to set a new course for the future, and pose the question: Is it too late for America to change?"
