Historian Niall Ferguson presents the series based on his bestselling book. According to Ferguson, we need to rethink our understanding of the 20th century. There were not, he says, two world wars and a cold war, but a single Hundred Years' War. It was not nationalism that powered these conflicts, but empires. The driving force was not class or socialism - race was. And finally, it was not the West that triumphed; in fact, power slowly and steadily migrated towards the new empires of the East.
