Programme Notes - Channel 4 Learning - War of the World: A new history of the 20th century

Programme Notes - Channel 4 Learning - War of the World: A new history of the 20th century | AP World | Scoop.it

It was not ideologies of class or the advent of socialism that was the driving force of the century, but race. And finally, it was not the West that triumphed as the century progressed; in fact power slowly and steadily migrated towards the new empires of the East.
