Summary It is often said that history is the sum total of the things that could have been avoided. While a tremendous amount of literature has been devoted to the turning points of the Western History, little attention has been paid to the US and European policies towards the Chinese Revolution of 1911 and the Middle Kingdom's involvement in World War One. As today's China is gaining its undisputed superpower status, the world press speculates with tremor of its intentions. However, any worthy prediction must be rooted in the diligent study of past events and the comprehension of the Western and Chinese perception of these events. The US involvement in Revolution of 1911 and the perceived Western betrayal in the aftermath of World War One are the two most pivotal points in the Chinese modern history. Their memory is deeply etched in the Chinese national identity and these two milestones will affect the Beijing government outlook for decades to come. This documentary aims to enlighten anyone interested in the history Far East and the in the future of the East-West power balance.
