Here are the top ten articles for the History Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Nationalism Through Colonialism in Asia
When the twentieth-century enveloped the world, so did the actions of men in Europe that would change the face of Asia and beyond forever. As Europe was forced to look inward due to conflict, the Eastern nations began to find themselves again under the umbrella of nationalism.

2. Japan's Recovery After WWI to Economic Power
How did Japan recover from World War II and rise to become an economic world power? It all could be summed up in one word, determination, but I do not think that will fly as an answer. So let me expand on that.

3. Cold War as Reality in Decolonized Asia
The abrupt and reluctant decolonization of Asia was a major contributor to the tensions of the Cold War in the Far East. The Asian front of the Cold War became a visual representation of the deep and widening United States/Soviet Union conflict.

4. The Influences of the Persian Empire
The Persian Empire was mighty and powerful, yet few can remember much about them as the Romans and Greeks dominate Western Civilization history conversations. But their influence more than likely effects your everyday life.

5. Importance of Studying History
What is so important about history? The past is the past right? Wrong! Check out why studying history is vital to the future.

6. The United Nation's Response to Torture
Just as the world conflicts changed after the Cold War, so did the exposure of torture to non-military individuals. Torture was no longer found just with prisoners of war. Torture was becoming the norm for some states to use against those they wished to control or eliminate.

7. Finding History in Quilts
Learn how history can be found in simple quilts and the fabric used in the pieces.

8. America - A Melting Pot
America has been described as a Melting Pot, but it wasn't until recently that it began to truly earn that name.

9. Causes of Westward Expansion in America
Westward expansion was one of the most complicated and deep phases of American history as well as something that was crucial in developing the nation into what it is today. It did not occur for any one particular reason. It was a spider web of reasons that pushed it and gave it such depth.

10. The Kansas-Nebraska Act as Cause of Civil War
The Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 was a huge catalyst in sending the nation to the Civil War. This act reversed the Missouri Compromise and allowed slavery in the remainder of the original areas of the Louisiana Purchase.
