Topics range from the dramatic changes in Russia at the beginning of the twentieth century, the extraordinary story of the civil rights movement in America, how and why the superpowers clashed after the end of the Second World War and what motivated people to travel by foot from Europe to the Holy Land to try and capture Jerusalem in the Middle Ages.
