Synopsis

Join Marxist historian, Neil Faulkner in conversation about his book A Radical History of the World. This is a sweeping history from the hunter-gatherers two million years ago to the ancient empires of Persia and China, and from the Russian Revolution to modern imperialism and the 2008 crash. What happened in the past was not predetermined. Different outcomes — liberation or barbarism - were often possible. Rejecting the top-down approach of conventional history, Faulkner contends that it is the mass action of ordinary people that drives great events.
