Tunis — In his Prolegomena (The Muqaddimah), 'Abd al-Rahman Ibn Muhammad Ibn Khaldun al-Hadrami of Tunis (A.D. 1332-1406), commonly known as Ibn Khaldun, laid down the foundations of different fields of knowledge, in particular the science of civilization (al-'umran). His significant contributions to economics, however, should place him in the history of economic thought as a major forerunner, if not the "father," of economics, a title which has been given to Adam Smith, whose great works were published some three hundred and seventy years after Ibn Khaldun's death. Not only did Ibn Khaldun plant the germinating seeds of classical economics, whether in production, supply, or cost, but he also pioneered in consumption, demand, and utility, the cornerstones of modern economic theory.

If history teaches us anything, it's that it's way harder to pick out the good guys from the bad guys than the movies would lead us to believe. In fact, some of history's most face-blastingly savage regimes came up with some shockingly progressive innovations in health, human rights and, well, everything else. The Nazis Get the Anti-Tobacco Ball Rolling We put this on the list at great risk to our future political careers.
The British Occupation of Manila between 1762 and 1764 was an episode in Philippine colonial history when the Kingdom of Great Britain occupied the Spanish colonial capital of Manila and the nearby principal port of Cavite . The resistance from the provisional Spanish colonial government established by members of the Royal Audience of Manila and their Filipino allies prevented British forces from taking control of territory beyond the neighbouring towns of Manila and Cavite. The British occupation was ended as part of the peace settlement of the Seven Years' War . [ edit ] Historical background At the time, Britain and France were belligerents in what was later called the Seven Years' War. As the war progressed, the neutral Spanish government became concerned that the string of major French losses at the hands of the British were becoming a threat to Spanish interests.

The Haitians I knew at my South Florida high school were not exactly the devil-dealing types. Thousands of them had arrived by boat in the early 1990s following Jean-Bertrand Aristide’s ( first) ouster . Most knew little English and had not been introduced to such luxuries as deodorant or a high-top fade.
The Yamasee War (also spelled Yemassee War ) (1715–1717) was a conflict between British settlers of colonial South Carolina and various Native American Indian tribes, including the Yamasee , Muscogee , Cherokee , Chickasaw , Catawba , Apalachee , Apalachicola , Yuchi , Savannah River Shawnee , Congaree , Waxhaw , Pee Dee , Cape Fear , Cheraw , and others. Some of the Native American Indian groups played a minor role while others launched attacks throughout South Carolina in an attempt to destroy the colony. They killed hundreds of colonists and destroyed many settlements. Traders "in the field" were killed throughout what is now southeastern United States . Abandoning settled frontiers, people fled to Charles Town , where starvation set in as supplies ran low. The survival of the South Carolina colony was in question during 1715.
