Have you heard?
Our interactive digital magazine for the iPad and iPhone, History is Now, has arrived! We love it and we're sure you will too.
So what is the magazine about? Here is what our editor says…
History continues to define and transform our world. Events in 1940s China continue to causes tensions between China an America. The legacy of Communism and Colonialism continue to cause stability and instability, problems and agreements the world over. In short, history is so very important. The lessons you can learn from it, the events that happened, the differences between different ages and countries. Understanding where we as human beings have come from.
So that’s why we’ve decided to start History is Now, the global modern history magazine. Much like our other productions, the focus of the magazine will be on the 19th century, 20th century, Communism, civil war, and Colonialism. That said, from time-to-time we may be tempted to veer slightly off that course. Our articles will come from a variety of sources. We will be providing you with articles from some of our favorite history writers, while at other times we shall be trawling the archives of some of the best sites online to hand-pick the very best pieces just for you. You see, very often the best history has already been written – it’s just finding it that’s almost impossible. And as some of you will know, before our horizons expanded, we were making history podcasts - so in each magazine we will be telling you a bit more about one of our podcasts and inserting it in the magazine.
The USA, China, the USSR and the nearly-nuclear Taiwan Straits Crisis is the main article! But what else is there in issue 1?
The first edition features articles on:
- How the US, China and the USSR nearly became involved in a nuclear war over Taiwan
- The story of the early stages of the brutal Italian colonization of Libya
- Death in the Eastern Bloc - The harrowing tale of a freedom fighter in Communist Czechoslovakia
- A number of bizarre tales involving lions in Western Europe
- The life and times of the 'log cabin President' William Henry Harrison
- Our first ever podcast!
