From Iain MacWhirter blog and to think Gideon has a BA in Modern History which I presume took in Ireland breaking from the UK? "Not even Ireland was treated this way by the UK after the civil war. In 1928, when the Irish Free State came into being, a new Irish pound was minted. But this held party with the English pound, and remained convertible on a one-to-one basis for the next half century. The UK pound remained legal tender in the Republic, even during a trade war in the 1930s. George Osborne may lack any sense of history, but surely the Liberal Democrats – who used to stand for Irish home rule – are aware of the historical resonances."

Europe is privatising (see earlier link) now George Osborne, our Modern History degree Chancellor (Chance-seller?) is doing the same. Quote: 'Arrogantly assuming they would be re-elected, Osborne has also announced a further £25,000,000,000 in cuts to public services and welfare in 2015. Ominously, Labour shadow chancellor Ed Balls declared yesterday that Mr Osborne's economic failures would mean that a Labour government would "have to make cuts." So regardless of which party gets in - it looks like we are all up a (well known) creek without a paddle.'

Like Tchaka Owen , I was lucky to be studying South African politics when Nelson Mandela was freed. Dame Helen Sussman was one of his closest friends and allies in Codessa, the political group that helped raise world awareness to apartheid and eventually overthrow the government. He was a freedom fighter who was one of the most important men in Modern History. What we should remember is that he did not stand up and make promises he did not intend to keep. He truly suffered in his life and learned to be a man of Truth. World leaders everywhere need to stop lauding him as if they know him and start studying him to be more like him... He was not left wing nor right wing, neither dove nor hawk... He was justice and equality. I hope the hype dies down and people stop using him for their own political agendas and instead learn from him.
Was Typhoon Haiyan the Most Intense Storm in Modern History? Guest essay by Patrick J. Michaels Global warming buffs have been fond of claiming that the roaring winds of Typhoon Haiyan were the highest ever measured in a landfalling tropical cyclone, and that therefore (?) this is a result of climate change. In reality, it’s unclear whether or not it holds the modern record for the strongest surface wind at landfall. This won’t be known until there is a thorough examination of its debris field. The storm of record is 1969 Hurricane Camille, which I rode out in an oceanfront laboratory about 25 miles east of the eye. There’s a variety of evidence arguing that Camille is going to be able to retain her crown. The lowest pressure in Haiyan was 895 millibars, or 26.42 inches of mercury. To give an idea, the needle on your grandmonther’s dial barometer would have to turn two complete counterclockwise circles to get there. While there have been four storms in the Atlantic in the modern era that have been ...
Modern History of Hinduism The recent periods of Hinduism (after 1st century ACE) though did not have a single consolidated documented history. However, the histories of many of the glorious personalities were well written. There are numerous such biographies that talk about the social, political setup during those periods. Apart from these the kings had the inscriptions made on stones and copper plates (epigraphs) that briefly tell about any special event like construction of temples etc that happened during the reign of a king. These clearly mention the year in which the event happened. Given the robustness of these materials they stand well for very many centuries. So these serve as the historic evidences and help determining the dates of other contemporaries using the references mentioned in them. The 2nd millennium was a dark period when the land in which Hinduism was glittering gloriously, that India was attacked by the Muslim invaders. (The European take over subsequently was a boon and a bane in t ...

Modern History of India. The Indian National Congress: • Formed in 1885 by A.O.Hume, an Englishman and a retired civil servant. • First session in Bombay under W.C.Banerjee in 1885 (72 delegates attended it). • In the first two decades (1885 – 1905), quite moderate in its approach and confided in British justice and generosity. • But the repressive measures of the British gave rise to extremists within Congress like Bipin Chandra Pal, Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Lala Lajpat Rai (Lal, Bal, Pal). Partition of Bengal: • By Lord Curzon on Oct 16, 1905, through a royal Proclamation, reducing the old province of Bengal in size by creating East Bengal and Assam out of rest of Bengal. • The objective was to set up a communal gulf between Hindus and Muslims. • A mighty upsurge swept the country against the partition. National movement found real expression in the movement against the partition of Bengal in 1905. Swadeshi Movement (1905): • Lal, Bal, Pal, and Aurobindo Ghosh played the important role. ...

Grade Four I cried on my first day at school. This is traditionally a child's privilege. I didn't want to leave my mother alone at the school gate like an unloved scarecrow. I didn't want her to feel sad walking home through the new born fields of tin cans, that dead morning, when separation was the next dish after breakfast. I'm modest enough now to admit it. I've still got the tears somewhere. I take the handkerchief out now and then like a souvenir from a weepy movie and dab early childhood from my eyes. Later I failed the eleven-plus a year or so after Tim failed his, which I regret now, not the fact that Tim Failed his, but because I could have taken the day off and headed for Portland with my notebook. Five years later I graduated from academia with a Grade Four in Modern History. This wasn't remarked upon in the global press at the time. i suppose men walking on the moon was considered more newsworthy than a schoolboy walking home across Honicknowle Green with a C.S.E. certificate. And the same gra ...
Abolition of the Ottoman Sultanate and the Caliphate every Muslim should read this article and comments How Atatürk Made Turkey Secular Jun. 11 Featured, Modern History, Ottoman History, Philosophy 20 comments The evolution of Turkey in the early 1900s is one of the most baffling cultural and social changes in Islamic history. In a few short years, the Ottoman Empire was brought down from within, stripped of its Islamic history, and devolved into a new secular nation known as Turkey. The consequences of this change are still being felt today throughout the Muslim world, and especially in a very polarized and ideologically segmented Turkey. What caused this monumental change in Turkish government and society? At the center of it all is Mustafa Kemal, better known as Atatürk. Through his leadership in the 1920s and 1930s, modern secular Turkey was born, and Islam took a backseat in Turkish society. The Rise of Atatürk The decision of the Ottoman Empire to enter the First World War in 1914 turned out to b ...
This would be the last note on how Tiananmen Massacre changed Hong Kong's future copied from Steven Tsang's A Modern History of Hong Kong.  So what measures were proposed to prevent the crisis deepening in Hong Kong after Tiananmen Massacre?:   The first and most important was for the local people to have an opportunity to leave should the Chinese takeover turn into a disaster.  The British government rejected it firmly.  This was due to the powerful resistance led by Norman Tebbit, a political heavy weight in Margaret Thatcher’s ruling Conservative Party, and opposition from the Labour Party.  The upshot was a classic British compromise.  It was to given UK citizenship to 50,000 key people holding essential positions in Hong Kong and their dependents to provide sufficient reassurance to persuade them to stay. (It's objected by the PRC and scrapped as mentioned in the last note.)   The second requirement, which the British adopted, was to revive and accelerate the process of democratization.  Th ...

Modern History    The War of Independence - 1948 War (the 'Nakba') - The War of Independence or 1948 War is divided into the pre-independence period, and the post-independence period. Clashes between Israeli underground groups and Arab irregulars began almost as soon as the UN passed the partition resolution. During this time, Arab countries did not invade, though the Jordan legion did assist the in the attack against Gush Etzion, a small block of settlements in the territory allocated to the Palestinian state, south of Jerusalem.       Pre-Independence - During the period before Israeli independence was declared, two armies of Arab irregular volunteers, let by Haj Amin El Husseini in the Jerusalem area, and by Fawzi El Kaukji in the Galilee, placed their fighters in Arab towns and conducted various aggressive operations against the Jewish towns and village under the eyes of the British. Kaukji and his irregulars were allowed into Palestine from Syria by the British, wi ...
