History, Politics & Society

'History, Politics and Society' deals with the affairs of human beings. The categories overlap to a degree: 'History' describes changes in those affairs, and encompasses the other two; 'Politics' is about how people govern themselves; and 'Society' is about how people organize and conduct their lives. Questions here range from ancient history to history-in-the-making, political views to decisions of lawmakers, and present and past societies and how people relate to each other within their societies.
