PWHCE relaunched for 2005, or What I've been up to lately 

Over the past month, I have spent most of my spare moments working on the Perspectives on World History and Current Events web page.

Now that the page has its own domain name, I am working to update and standardise the format of the page and also speed up the process of putting articles on the page after they have been submitted.

PWHCE now also has its own advertisements, so that eventually the web page might be financially self-sufficient and even subsidise other costs of running PWHCE.

The following new articles have been added to the page over the past month:

Film Review: GATTACA
Film Review: Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Asia Pacific Report:
The Asia Pacific Report gave PWHCE exclusive permission to publish excerpts from the report on our web page some time ago. There have been some delays in the publishing of this report, but it is now almost completely up to date. These delays will not occur in future.

In particular, APR 65, from December 2004, includes profiles of each of the 36 ministers in the new cabinet of Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Vice President Yusuf Kalla.

Who's Who of Russia:
This project, one of the first on PWHCE, is undergoing a revamp. The original project of producing dozens of very short profiles of figures from Russian History and Current Events has been revised, and instead we are now looking at a smaller number of more comprehensive profiles and some full biographies. Examples include:

Aksakov, Pushkin, Gogol.
Soviet political figures:
Abakumov, Stalin, Trotsky, Tukhachevsky
Figures from the Russian monarchy:
Grand Duke Vladimir Cyril Romanov, Catherine the Great.
Figures from the decline of the Soviet Union and the subsequent period:
Yevgeni Primakov, Vladimir Putin, Mikhail Gorbachev, Anatoly Sobchak, Roman Abramovich.

There is also a biography of Boris Yeltsin that has been on the page for some time.

Middle East and Islam:
Open Letter: To the Misguided Muslims. Muslim Peace Activist S A Rehman calls on militant Islamists to relinquish violence, and stop sullying the religion of Islam.

The Middle East Project continues to be updated.

Having recently acquired a digital camera, I should also be able to illustrate the web page more frequently in future.

So there it is - PWHCE re-launched for 2005!
