A Don's Life - Times Online - WBLG: History Carnival 51
My first and foremost love has to be of history and seeing how it all ties in. For a long while I was seriously contemplating becoming a military historian and a good number of my favorite books are still history books e.g. Paul Kennedy's Rise and Fall of Great Empires, Huntington's Clash of Civilizations, Boorstin's Trilogy (The Seekers, Discovers and Creators, the last of which I particularly enjoyed)
Until I got spurned by History (my grades weren't great) and seduced by other subjects (economics and then law).
But there are some great blog posts. Read them for History Is.
