 Political History
LDS involvement in American politics began with the conflicts between Mormons and non-Mormons in the 1830s and 1840s that led to the founding of a religious and political community in the Great Basin, organized by the U.S. Congress as Utah Territory.
Political involvement continued in the social and political order of the state of Utah where, because of the high number of Latter-day Saints, there is identification between the political community and the dominant religion.
Latter-day Saints relinquished important elements of the social, economic, and political order that they had established in the Great Basin in exchange for a measure of the political power and autonomy that decades of confrontation and conflict had demonstrated were necessary for their survival as a community.

 European History
Jacob Burckhardt's Social and Political Thought by Richard Sigurdson (University of Toronto Press) Best known as the author of The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy, Swiss historian Jacob Burckhardt (1818—97) is one of the most important figures in the development of European historiography.
Rather, it is to explicate his political views, which have been previously under-appreciated, and to give his ideas the kind of careful consideration that might spur on others to engage in further examination and critical analysis.
Chapter 2 examines the confrontation between Burckhardt's 'cultural history' (Kulturgeschichte) and modern 'political history,' especially as it is represented by Ranke and the nationalist historians of the Prussian-German school.

 Political History of Ghana
One of the great sudanic states which dominate African history, the kingdom of Ghana controlled the gold trade between the min- ing areas to the south and the Saharan trade routes to the north.
Ghana spearheaded the political advancement of Africa and Dr. Nkrumah laid the foundations for the unity later expressed in the formation of the Organization of African Unity (OAU).

 History of Belgium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The History of Belgium, from pre-history to the present day, is intertwined with the history of its European neighbours, in particularl that of the Netherlands and of Luxembourg.
Until 1581 the history of Belgium (except the Bishopric of Liège), the grand-duchy of Luxembourg and the country the Netherlands is the same: they formed the country/region of the Netherlands or the Low Countries.
The real political forces behind this were the Catholic clergy, which was against the Protestant Dutch king, William I, and the equally strong liberals, who opposed the royal authoritarianism, and the fact that the Belgians were not represented proportionally in the national assemblies at all.

Political cartoonists have shaped public opinion since the mid-19th century, and they provide current scholars with a glimpse of the political debate and public opinion surrounding past events.
Political cartoons had the ability to reach both the literate and the illiterate, and Nast's cartoons outraged the public against Tweed and the Tammany Ring.
Additionally, political cartoons that were inspired by now-obscure political situations are difficult to analyze because imagery and metaphors presented may not still be familiar (Press, 29).

 Cambridge University Press - Political Science
Political history in the industrial world has indeed ended, argues this pioneering study, but the winner has been social democracy - an ideology and political movement that has been as influential as it has been misunderstood.
Berman looks at the history of social democracy from its origins in the late nineteenth century to today and shows how it beat out competitors such as classical liberalism, orthodox Marxism, and its cousins, Fascism and National Socialism by solving the central challenge of modern politics - reconciling the competing needs of capitalism and democracy.
This is a study of European social democracy that rewrites the intellectual and political history of the modern era while putting contemporary debates about globalization in their proper intellectual and historical context.

 A Political History of SF
The history of modern SF is one of five attempted revolutions — one success and four enriching failures.
This turns out to be useful perspective because more of the history of SF than one might expect is intertwined with political questions, and SF had an important role in giving birth to at least one distinct political ideology that is alive and important today.
But cultural history is littered with the corpses of zealots who attempted to yoke art to ideology with shallow arguments, only to be exposed as fools when the art became obsolescent before the ideology or (more often) vice-versa.
