Issue Cover

All About History  |  Issue 108  

At what cost do we bring about change? That seems like a pretty pervasive question for humanity. It’s likely one of the major reasons why many people resist a change, even if they think it will be beneficial to them in principle. What will it cost? It’s a concern made all the more understandable when you look at the events that followed the French Revolution. The overthrow of the monarchy to install a democratically elected government should, in principle, have meant good things for the people of France (or at least the men of France who were given the universal right to vote from 1792). It should have brought an end to corrupt government and the consolidation of wealth among the aristocracy, and in many ways it did. But who could have foretold the violence and recrimination that would follow? It’s those events, known as the Reign of Terror, that we wanted to take a closer look at this issue. How did things escalate to such an extent? Who was responsible for the violence? Was this turn of events somehow inevitable? We look to answer all of these questions and more. Also this issue we reflect on the events of 11 September 2001, which took place 20 years ago this month. It’s an event that has defined the beginning of the 21st century, but we wanted to return to focus on the people whose lives were lost or put on the line to save others on that fateful day.

First published in 2013, All About History is the UK’s biggest independent history magazine. Bringing together the drama of human history with expert analysis, incredible illustrations and captivating storytelling. It’s the ideal read for anyone who loves learning about history.

Each issue captures the imagination with six regular features including:

Ancient Empires: From Ancient Egypt and the Macedonian Empire to the Jin Dynasty and the Roman Empire, discover the amazing stories behind the truths and myths that have defined our world.

World Wars: Uncover some of the most tragic and heroic true stories from the trenches of World War I, and the battlegrounds of World War II.

Inside History: Incredible insights into historic buildings and machinery that changed the way we live forever.

Heroes and Villains: Learn what made the most influential figures in history tick, from kings and queens to inventors and explorers.

Timeline: Follow the most significant dates in history in chronological order, tracking the rise and fall of empires and individuals alike.

What if: Leading historians debate how the world may have looked today if some of the key historical events had turned on their head. What would have happened if Germany had won the Battle of Britain? What if the gunpowder plot had succeeded? What if the Vikings had colonised North America?
