This group looks ‘Sideways’ at history. We choose a particular period and examine what was happening at that period worldwide. We are currently covering the period 1850-1914 which will give us the opportunity of looking at European colonialism in Africa and Asia, the American civil war and its aftermath, industrialism, the rise of socialism and much besides. Although none of us are experts, we do expect all group members to participate in discussions and researching/presenting topics of their choice. Michael Johns leads the group. Access to the internet and email essential.
