What are worst, most deadly events in human history? Our guest tonight on Inquiry has written a book that describes and ranks the world’s worst wars, genocides and religious persecutions. MATTHEW WHITE is a writer, researcher and creator of the on-line Historical Atlas of the Twentieth Century. His new book is titled ATROCITIES: THE 100 DEADLIEST EPISODES IN HUMAN HISTORY. Tune in and learn what horrific event ranked at number one and why chaos is always deadlier than tyranny.
