Well, I already looked at the famous generals of both Takeda Shingen and Uesugi Kenshin. Now itís time to take a look at the men who could count themselves among the elite of Oda Nobunagaís army. Now, Nobunaga waged war for so long and on a much grander scale than anyone before him, so the list of men who served him were ever changing and constantly growing. Despite this, I have...

History today in my world

Posted January 21st, 2011 at 02:49 PM by Drew

I would like to sit down for a few moments and tell you all about a topic I found rather sad but true from my own personal experience. I was reading a History Today magazine at the library the other day and found and interesting title for a column so I decided to read it.

This article was written by a man called Peter Snow and he was describing on how entrenched the teaching curriculum is with the 20th century and not reaching further back into history. He goes on about how the pre-twentieth...

The World Trade Organisation was set up as a replacement to the General Agreement on Trades and Tariffs in 1994 during the latter's Uruguay round of trade talks. It was conceived as both a permanent forum for trade negotiations and as an arena within which the mediation of multilateral dispute resolutions could take place. Lori Wallach, trade lawyer for Public Citizen Watch, in her ground-breaking book "Whose Trade Organisation" is less charitable, describing it as a "neoliberal trojan...

Commitments from the North were also made to reduce their peak tariffs on heavily processed or industrial goods such as textiles. This was a key concession as Lesser Developed Countries (LDC's) were hitherto obliged to specialise in the export of primary commodities because of the lower import tariffs. This had the effect of help driving the overall price for commodities down as they were competing against other LDCs who were likewise taking advantage of the lower tariff band. It also addressed...

Historian Spotlight: Karl Friday

Posted February 3rd, 2011 at 06:56 AM by leakbrewergator

Karl Friday is one of the few historians out there who has a real "hands on" experience with the subject material that he writes about. He has lived in Japan and trained with the famed Kashima Shinryu.

I admit I had never read a Friday book until fairly recently. Friday was kind enough to help me through my graduate school application process. I figured I owed it to the guy to read at least one of his books. The first book I purchased was Legacies of the Sword: The Kashima-Shinryu
