From: Trevor Getz <firstname.lastname@example.org> I have read John Edward Philip's article on HNN, which is a great short introduction to African history as a discipline. It may well be ignored by the mass of HNN readers who prefer to spend their time hurling accusations of 'fascist' and 'pinko' at each other over obscure civil war events and crazed comparisons between recent events and historical happenings. I'm glad, however, that John stepped up to the challenge to at least introduce African history to HNN's readers, and we could do worse than to support him in this by posting intelligent, balanced, and nuanced comments on the article.
