Do you know why there have been so many problems in various parts of the world? In furtherance of their colonial interests, British politicians from time to time wrote national borders for other peoples. They did so in the Balkans, in Africa and in the Middle East. They even drew the border between China and India. Such borders were very often not based on the conditions on the ground. This sowed the seeds of future conflicts.

Open your eyes and be open-minded, learn history from different perspectives.

Hear the other side,
reflect on our own position,
independent thinking,
say no to double standard.

What have we learnt from history?
The Great Flood of Yahweh killed almost all living things (including the lovely boys and girls in China). Is this not genocide? In the Conquest of Canaan, did Yahweh not instruct his Chosen People to embark on genocide? Are these really consistent with the all-loving Christian God?

God must have been very upset by so many people claiming to be Christians but doing evil things in his name. The story of Christianity should have been a love story. I think that Jesus (as told in the Gospels) is really great. I love you. You love me. Love the one who persecutes you. This is of course easier said than done. But if we at least try to practice what Jesus preaches, this world will certainly be more beautiful.

Who decides what is orthodoxy and what is heresy? How is such a decision made? Is it correct that orthodoxy is essentially the winner, and heresy the loser, of an argument? Is it correct that, as a matter of history, the outcome of the argument (orthodoxy or heresy) is very often dependent upon which argument is backed by military power? Is it correct that, perhaps ironically, very often orthodoxy started off as a heresy? Is it correct that, in the course of history, yesterday’s heresy may become today’s orthodoxy; and vice versa?

Most of the kings who were given the honour of “the great” (e.g. King Alexander the Great) were mass murderers. What should be the correct “universal” value?

Muslims could fight defensive wars. They were not supposed to embark on aggression. But did they not march, with weapons of destruction, all the way out from Arabia?

Do you know that Martin Luther (the founder of Protestantism) regarded the Jews “as no better than dogs”? Do you know that he said that the Jews “are children of the Devil, condemned to the flames of Hell?”

The Americans’ right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness was built upon the native peoples’ loss of their lives, homes and liberties. Do you agree that history is almost invariably written by the winners?

Do you know why there have been so many problems in various parts of the world? In furtherance of their colonial interests, British politicians from time to time wrote national borders for other peoples. They did so in the Balkans, in Africa and in the Middle East. They even drew the border between China and India. Such borders were very often not based on the conditions on the ground. This sowed the seeds of future conflicts.

The author introduces the influential moments and events in world history. More importantly, he raises questions and pinpoints some crucial facts that we have missed when we learnt history.
作者簡介
(Warren Chan)
在馬頭圍新邨和深水埗長大,小學時曾經「考第尾」,老師的評語是「精神不集中,求學欠認真」。

中學時就讀於非傳統名校──利瑪竇書院(在兩年半內轉了三間分校)、南海紗廠(半工讀)和模範英文中學;亦曾經在工廠當夜班雜工,高高興興地賺取「一蚊一個鐘」的工資。會考成績平平,但有幸可以在銘賢書院進修中六課程。

正所謂「將相本無種,男兒當自強」,一於努力、努力、再努力,終於考入中文大學崇基學院的歷史系,在那裏過了人生中最快樂和充實的一年校園生活。可是人未在中環,心卻已經有了中環價值觀,恐怕歷史系畢業「無錢途」,所以又再努力,以自修生的身分考入了香港大學的法律系。在沉重的功課和考試壓力下仍然半工半讀,在1977年更以一級榮譽畢業。

1978年成為大律師,1994年成為御用大律師(主權回歸時改稱資深大律師),在法庭過了二十五年充滿挑戰的日子。

當人生的旅程走了一半有多之時,想享受一下「從心所欲」的生活,在二零零八年毅然急流勇退,與世無爭,日中飲茶看書、遊山玩水,享受古今中外前人遺留下來的文化遺產,自得其樂。

在《古今中外》尚未成書之時,已經因為「技癢」而重操故業。
