Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick tell the history of the U.S from the perspective of those who have lost the most as the government has been co-opted by big money and the military-industrial complex. (Namely, the American people…) There are lots of interesting stories that most history textbooks have chosen not to tell. This is thee real reason why our children do not receive a first-rate education, because history is largely written to legitimize the status quo, rather than to illuminate the past and present so that we can see our way to a better future.

“The awakening of consciousness and the return of Kukulk’an Quetzacoatl, the plumed serpent, has started. This book ,”The Night of the last Katun-2012 Maya" unravels these mysteries. In a rather accessible language, and from the mayan perspective, it shows how the universe gardually evolves until it becomes aware of itself. It also shows us man’s role in this evolutionary process, and it reminds us of who we are, where we came from, and what we are doing on this planet"—From the jacket cover
