A JOURNEY THROUGH HISTRY REVIEWING 'WILD SWANS: THREE WOMEN OF CHINA' Hosted on Tuesday, December 02, 2014

Everyone
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.

ACCESSIBLE WORLD PRESENTS A JOURNEY THROUGH HISTRY ON AUGUST 5, 2014 TO REVIEW THE BIOGRAPHY, 'WILSON' BY A SCOTT BERG Hosted on Tuesday, August 05, 2014

A spirited discussion marked our June meeting between defenders and opponents of former President Richard Nixon. However everyone criticized the slanted presentation by the authors, Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan in 'The Arrogance of Power'. You can hear the interview and discussion in the Archives.

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.

REVIEW 'MY BATTLE OF ALGIERS: A MEMOIR"

In April we will deal with some Middle-East history specifically the Algerian War for independence, the clash of cultures- not unlike our travails with Iraq and Pakistan - and how France won the battle of Algiers using torture, but lost Algeria itself because of its use.
