In the classrooms, the History that is taught can desire an endless barrage of names and dates, battles and wars, historical figures and political leaders. Who is it that cares?
 

History shows us why things are happening and how things are going on; how we are going from knights and castles to tanks and bunkers; how empires are being built and how they are being built downtown; how states are being founded and how they fall. History is a story: history is the story of conquests and conquerors, of empires and emperors, of exploration and adventure, of love and betrayal, of confidence and deceit. History fills our human need for tales of ourselves and of the things we did. History is as fantastic as a novel and as exciting. The student has no need to look beyond the Russian Tsars, the Egyptian Pharaohs or the French Revolutionaries to see that history is an exciting tale.

 Then, what makes history? In short, history is the study of transformation, and that makes it one of the subjects that are most useful. The world is powered by a transition, which keeps changing our lives in ways we don't even know. The change affects us from governments and countries at the highest levels down to the most trivial details. The key to understanding how these forces influence our lives today is to study history-the past is the key to the present. History provides context for all that we see around us today, and the key to understanding the world that we are now in is to look at how it came to be.
