Everyone has heard the term "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." If that maxim is true, and if it is to be useful to everyone, then it is essential that we have access to an accurate account of history and the reasons why historical events occurred.
Most people would agree that war should be avoided if possible, yet in the 239 years since the American declaration of independence, the USA has been at war for 229 of those years. Were all of those wars necessary? If that isn't a repeating historical pattern, we don't know what is.
The First World War was called "the war to end all wars" and yet, just 20 years later, an even worse conflagration consumed the Eurasian continent, killing 65 million people.
The phrase "never again" is most often heard in reference to the genocidal policies of the Nazis towards the Jews of Germany and Poland, yet today a record number of Jews are fleeing Europe for Israel in the face of mounting anti-semitism.
Apart from 4 military assaults on sovereign nations, the deaths of at least 2 million people and the creation of an extremely instable security situation in many parts of the globe, the almost 15-year-long US-led war on terror has created a distinct anti-Muslim climate in many Western nations that bears many of the hallmarks of the first waves of anti-Jewish sentiment in Nazi Germany.
So if we have an accurate understanding of history, why does it appear to continue to repeat? Is there something wrong with our official historical narrative?

Pam Jenoff has written several novels, including the Quill Award nominee, THE KOMMANDANT’S GIRL. Jenoff is a graduate of George Washington University, Cambridge and Penn Law. She served as the special assistant to the Secretary of the Army. In 1996, after moving over from the Pentagon to the State Department, she was assigned to the U.S. Consulate in Krakow, Poland where she developed an expertise in Polish-Jewish relations and the Holocaust. THE WINTER GUEST is her latest book, the story of twin sisters fighting for survival in Nazi occupied Poland and the mysterious American pilot that lands on their doorstep.
London born James MacManus was educated at Westminster School and graduated from St. Andrews University. He has worked for the Daily Express and the Guardian first as a reporter and then as a foreign correspondent. He moved to The Times where he serves as Managing Director of the Times Literary Supplement.

His latest book SLEEP IN PEACE TONIGHT takes place in 1941 London, and brings to life the tale of Harry Hopkins, the adviser to Franklin D.

Welcome to the QPKS Network! Today we welcome, Author Walker Smith to talk the Historical Motown Records, Jack the Rapper and more!
ABOUT WALKER SMITH
As the child of a jazz drummer and a book-addicted beatnik, Walker Smith grew up in a house filled with music and literature. The music bug bit first, and Walker was signed as a recording artist with the prestigious Casablanca label (under the name Bobbi Walker). But between studio sessions and appearances, she quietly pressed on with her creative writing and history studies. Three solo albums later, she walked away from the music business and headed for New York to pursue her real dream to write. She wrote interviews and articles for African Voices and Vertigo magazines, features for the Reel Sisters Film Festival, and a collaborative biography with black radio pioneer Jack the Rapper Gibson. After releasing her first historical novel The Color Line , Walker Smith began work on what would become her most personal novel--Bluestone Rondo.
