Call for Input: World and Global History Bibliography

FROM THE EDITORS: Professor Getz's proposal below, that we conduct this discussion on H-World, seems like not only a productive intellectual excercise, but also a good way to initiate some of the features of the new H-World format.  We encourage subscribers to post their responses on H-World. (We also encourage subscribers to fill out the basics of their profiles, in order to post on H-World in the first place.)

Call for Reviewers: The Middle Ground Journal: World History and Global Studies

From: Hong-Ming Liang, The College of St. Scholastica HLIANG@CSS.EDU

The Middle Ground Journal, (http://themiddlegroundjournal.org) an open-access, refereed, and nonprofit scholarly journal of world history and global studies, is seeking qualified reviewers. For a list of the available books, documentaries and other artifacts, please visit:

Personal accounts of revolution

The numbers of personal accounts of revolutions runs into the tens of thousands - if not hundreds of thousands of books. For the simple reason that these are indeed earth-shaking events for the people involved in them and any personal account is therefore likely to find readers later on. The problem being that these tend to be in the local languages since they typically most interest local readers.

Graphic Novel

This is for a limited time only so hurry up and check it out. The graphic novel does a nice job with the early CIA and their role particularly.
