Sean Wilentz is not enamored with Oliver Stone's co-authored book The Untold History of the United States, opining that the authors "simply ignore the scholarship that contradicts their basic assumptions:"

Although the book by Stone and Kuznick is heavily footnoted, the sourcing...recalls nothing so much as Dick Cheney's cherry-picking of intelligence, particularly about the origins and early years of the cold war. [...] This book is less a work of history than a skewed political document...

After JFK, We probably shouldn't have expected much...
