Now adapted into graphic novel format—the “riveting, eye-opening, and thought-provoking” (The Guardian) New York Times bestselling companion to the critically acclaimed Showtime documentary about the largely unknown true rise and decline of the American empire. Since its initial publication in 2012, the New York Times bestselling companion to the critically acclaimed Showtime documentary by award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone and renowned historian Peter Kuznick has been translated into more than twenty languages, updated in 2019 to include new material, and published in a two-volume set for young readers, with its source material airing around the world. Now in beautifully inked graphic novel format, this adaptation of the modern classic breathes new life into key moments: from the rise of the American empire; to the madness of the apocalyptic nuclear age; and to the disastrous wars in Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, and beyond. Adapted by comics writer Scott Cunningham and illustrated by Hugo Award-winning cartoonist Steve Stiles and veteran comics artist Jim Fern, this fresh retelling of Stone and Kuznick’s riveting masterpiece boldly confronts the powerful forces at work behind an often half-told American history.

Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone and historian Peter Kuznick examine the dark side of American history from the beginning of the twentieth century right up to the Obama administration. Looking at American intervention in foreign conflicts in Latin American, Asia and the Middle East, including taking part in covert operations and interfering to overthrow elected leaders in favour of right-wing dictators, they ask whether US involvement around the globe is about democratic ideals, or political and economic gain. From Hiroshima and Nagasaki to the Watergate scandal and the transformation of America into a national security state, The Concise Untold History lays bare how US presidents have ignored the constitution and international law to influence the course of world events for the interest of the few. Based on the critically acclaimed documentary series of the same name, this book compellingly unmasks the shocking and unforgettable truth behind the American Empire.
