Four mothers. Four daughters. Eight stories. The Joy Luck Club is four women in San Francisco who have played mah jong together on a weekly basis to for forty some years.

"In working together on two challenging new documentaries?South of the Border and the forthcoming Showtime series Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States?filmmaker Oliver Stone engaged with author and filmmaker Tariq Ali in a probing, hard-hitting conversation on the politics of history. Their dialogue brings to light a number of forgotten?or deliberately buried?episodes of American history, from the U.S. intervention against the Russian Revolution, to the dynamic radicalism of the Wobblies, how Henry Wallace?s nomination for the vice-presidency was deliberately thwarted by Democratic Party machine insiders, to the ongoing close connections between various U.S. presidents and the Saudi royal family. For Stone and Ali?two of our most insightful observers on history and popular culture?no topic is sacred, no orthodoxy goes unchallenged."--Publisher's website
