The Flow of Ideas Through the Suez Canal

The Suez Canal is arguably one of the most important man-made waterways in the world. Its geographic location drastically reduces the travel time for goods and people by forgoing navigation around the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, and in 2013, nearly 15,660 ships traveled through the Canal with 99 different flags represented (http://www.suezcanal.gov.eg/Files/Publications/101.pdf).

Personal accounts of revolution

Dear colleagues,

I am putting together my reading list for my Fall 2014 World History survey course. I'll be working with the theme of revolution, and am looking for recommendations of personal accounts/experiences with revolution. I'm currently considering "Wobblies!: a graphic history of the Industrial Workers of the World" and "First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers." Please let me know if you have any other suggestions (1450-present).

Thank you,
