Does World History really still mean Western History, or do we need a radical new understanding of the past?
Discussing the history of the world is Antony Beevor, our leading military historian and author of best-selling books including The Second World War and Stalingrad, Andrew Marr, whose landmark series A New History of the World is on BBC1 this autumn, and Maria Misra, Fellow in Modern History at the University of Oxford and author of Vishnu’s Crowded Temple, India since the Great Rebellion.
Chaired by Chinese History expert and Radio 3’s Night Waves presenter Rana Mitter.
