Official histories have determined our view of the past. Governments and those in power have tried to preserve and reveal only information that serves their interests. Until now. The Secret Histories is a groundbreaking collection of the documents that have clarified history and altered the way we view politics and culture. From Edwin Black's investigation into the strategic alliance between IBM and the Nazi regime to I.F. Stone's classic study of the hidden history of the Korean War, from the 1952 Reader's Digest exposé of tobacco's link to cancer and heart disease to Seymour Hersh's report on the My Lai massacre (as well as his exposé of the abuse in Abu Ghraib prison), this is the perfect anthology for those seeking to revisit - or discover for the first time - the stories that have shaped our comprehension of the world.
