Margaret MacMillan is Emeritus Professor of International History at the University of Oxford and a world–renowned expert on history and international relations. Nick Spencer speaks to her about her book War: How conflict shaped us which looks at how humans have fought and made peace with one another for millennia, and explores what this says about who we are.
