Thanks to my regular readers. I need more like you you to make History in the News bigger and better. This isn't a blog full of expletives and nasty gossip. It's not full of winks and insider tips. It'[s modest, a little earnest but HISTORY IN THE NEWS tries to get us all the one thing we're short of when it comes to what's going on in the world- the History. Why are people going at each other in Kenya? BECAUSE OF HISTORY! Why are Canadian troops in Afghanistan? BECAUSE OF HISTORY! Why have monks been dying for democracy in Burma- BECAUSE OF HISTORY!
What's the one thing you don't get in the news- HISTORY!
How can you clinch arguments about politics- WITH THE HISTORY!
How can you make better business decisions abroad- KNOW THE HISTORY!
History isn't in books. It's around you all the time, every day. AND IT ALWAYS WILL BE
