Wealth and Power 1. Racism (with Roger Van Zwanenberg)
Roger van Zwanenberg discusses his book "Wealth and Power", with host Shaun Matsheza.
Meant for popular reading, the book focuses on how we have created today’s world, which we all take for granted. Roger insists that the world we live in is unique in world history. He ponders the question of How Europe, a small and rather insignificant part of the world in 1500, became so powerful and dominant across the globe by 1900, and he brings out the mechanisms that were used to establish European dominance.
In this episode, the first of three, we discuss the beginnings of racism, and how it has shaped the world today.
