Michael Knox Beran has an interesting column about a developing trend in historical treatments on the Founding Fathers at National Review Online. His tagline is "Never Forget: They Kept Lots of Slaves" and it investigates how this one true fact is starting to overshadow other aspects.

Leo Marx: Believing in America is an interesting essay about the evolution and splintering of the American Studies community. Here is a sample:

"Every Americanist no doubt has his or her own version of the Great Divide. For purposes of argument, therefore, I will sketch what I regard as the currently received - or in any case a widely shared - conception of that critical episode. It goes something like this. American studies 'BD' (Before the Divide) was an essentially holistic, affirmative, nationalistic project primarily aimed at identifying and documenting the distinctive features of the culture and society chiefly created by white European settlers in the territory now constituting the United States. The project was inaugurated on the eve of World War II (and the subsequent Cold War) at just the right moment to provide the prospective superpower with such valuable cultural resources as, for example, a major national literature."

"Then came the Sixties. A large and (briefly) effective dissident Movement suddenly emerged in response to a shocking sequence of disruptive events: the militant struggle of African Americans to obtain their civil rights; the assassinations of President Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King; and, above all, the Vietnam War. The crisis culminated in the costly, humiliating defeat of America's invading army. Before the end of that ill-considered, unjust, unpopular war, however, opposition to it had become, in the words of one astute British observer, Godfrey Hodgson, 'the organizing principle around which all the doubts and disillusionments of the years of crisis since 1963, and all the deeper discontents hidden under the glossy surface of the confident years [the post-World War II consensus] coalesced into one great rebellion.' Within the United States the international Sixties rebellion was mounted by a loose coalition of the disaffected-'students, pacifists, draft resisters, black militants, Mexican farm workers, welfare mothers, frustrated suburban housewives, reservation Indians, penetentiary inmates, hippies from the California beaches and the Western wilderness, and bored workers on General Motors assembly lines'-Americans who felt victimized by the 'power structure' or 'military industrial complex.' All of these angry, frustrated groups briefly came together in that unwieldy, intermittently unified, dissident coalition known as 'The Movement.'"

The community has been split ever since. It's an interesting read.

Checked and Updated the European History section. See major changes below:

Argos: Limited Area Search of the Ancient and Medieval Internet (argos.evansville.edu) was taken offline on 9/21/2003 due to lack of resources. The link has been removed from the European/Ancient section of this site.

Renaissance Society of America is also now offline and has been removed from the European/Early Modern section of this site.

Learning and Teaching About the History of Europe in the 20th Century is either inaccessible or hopelessly slow and has been removed from the European/Modern section of this site.

World War II Resources on the Internet (Miami University) is no longer online and has been replaced with U.S. History Internet Resources: The 1940s (University of Minnesota)
