His films include JFK, Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Heaven and Earth, The Doors, Salvador, Talk Radio, Natural Born Killers, and Nixon - all political, passionate, and disturbing.

This book embraces Stones work, analyzes his films, and places him inside the tradition of American political filmmaking. Mackey-Kallis argues that Stones films are mythological constructions based on historical events and personae which draw upon the inevitable tension between social actuality and film form. Not simply an aesthetic contemplation, this book analyzes Oliver Stones films as artistically structured instruments for public communication. Ample illustrations illuminate her discussions.
