My name is Daniel, and I'm a historiholic. I started this group to meet other people interested in history. My major areas are Stalinist Russia and Feudal Japan, but I've also recently started reading the ancient Greek and Roman historians.
History is everything. I believe in the saying that those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it in summer school. Kidding. Seriously though, I like it as an intellectual exercise, to try to determine what made events turn out the way they actually did, and also as a practical exercise, to try to predict current events based on historical precedent. Foremost, I enjoy history for the sake of history, learning the stories of the past. My primary focus since high school has been Stalinist Russia. Many of my books are either biographies or Soviet topics. However, I am also very interested in Feudal Japan, the era of the Shogunate. Recently, I have also started reading ancient Greek and Roman historians, as much because I'm interested in seeing how they approached the writing of history as because of the periods they cover. I also pick up a smattering of history from other places and eras, some connected, others not. I basically follow through on any topic that interests me.

Daniel: I'm very interested in the club and look forwrd to the next meeting. I've got an idea for a special event for the club...I'm arranging my book launch to be held at the Wm. H. Harrison War of 1812 HQ in Franklinton on the 230th anniv of the surrender at Yorktown (Oct 19) All the club members will be invited, but maybe you might want to make it a club event, and get some new members then.
