Emperors: China—Triumph and Turmoil (Enhanced DVD)
In this documentary, join host Niall Ferguson and dive into the pages of China's past. Learn about how the powerful rules, leaders, and financial powers of the Chinese state work to undermine individual freedoms and gain control over its people. All in the name of unity the higher goal is not always so cut and dry and conspiracy, corruption, and underhanded dealings are common.
Discover what life in China is like and why so many in power are fighting so hard to keep control over the people and why 'outsiders' are so fiercely kept at bay. In this education DVD series you will also examine how centralized control is slowly tearing apart the country and what is being done to try and save the nation, its people and the economy before it all falls. Take a unique look behind the scenes at a world few get to see in this light- the world of Chinese politics and power struggles.
