Providing alternative perspectives that encourage viewers to question bias, this thought-provoking take on 20th-century American history challenges the notion of the "American Century" as it examines elements of the past not commonly taught in schools.

The 12-episode series weaves footage from movies such as Dr. Strangelove, Star Wars, and Saving Private Ryan with engaging narration from Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone. Topics covered include World War II; Roosevelt, Truman, and Wallace; the atomic bomb; the Cold War; the ’50s; JFK; Johnson, Nixon, and Vietnam; Reagan and Gorbachev; George H.W. Bush and Clinton; and George W. Bush and Obama. A bonus disc provides prologues that discuss World War I and the Russian Revolution, and the years from 1920 to 1940. (The illustrated 750-page companion book provides riveting information that explores the series’ topics in greater detail.)
