My name is Paul Swendson, and I have been teaching history for more than 25 years, with the last twenty 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.
I recently published a third edition of a book that is a collection of many of the history essays that I originally published here. The title is "Accessible American History: Connecting the Past to the Present." It can be purchased as a paperback or ebook at Amazon or as an ebook at Apple Books, Google Books, and Barnes and Noble.
