My name is Paul Swendson, and I have been teaching history for more than 20 years, with the last eighteen (or so) spent at the community college level. Here is a little hub explaining the origin of my user name:
My subject area as a professor is history, but my hubs, like my classes, cover a wide range of topics: education, politics, history, culture, religion, sports, and life in general. They always involve some personal commentary, and I do my best to make the information relevant to the average person today.
A few years, I published a second edition of a book that is a collection of many of the history essays that I originally published here. Below is a link to a hub that provides more information, including links to where it can be purchased. I hope to start writing more frequently here once again with the eventual goal of expanding and updating the book.
