In February we leave the Far East and 20th century for the 17th century Dutch Golden Age, the Dutch empire and it's North American Colony secreted between Boston and Virginia.

liked last month’s book ‘Empress Dowager.’ The book was readable and seemed well documented. However, several of the group said there was too much diplomatic trivia and court protocol cluttering up the narrative in places.

ACCESSIBLE WORLD PRESENTS A JOURNEY THROUGH HISTRY REVIEWING 'WARRIORS OF GOD' Hosted on Tuesday, October 07, 2014

Our October book also deals with Middle Eastern History and brings us forward 300 years from the year 687 to 1187, to the Third Crusade. The Arab Empire had been expanding into Spain and the Balkans and a concerned Pope Urban II had promised eternal salvation if Europe's Aristocracy would stop fighting among themselves and create a Kingdom of God incorporating Christian Holy Places in the Middle East. The barbarities committed by the Crusaders armed with a ecclesiastical free pass on morality still impacts us today as the evening news attests.

Because of the two national conventions we will skip July and meet on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 to discuss a President who lacked the personality defects of a Nixon or Johnson.
