This is a very interesting blog about racism and bogus history.

Scott Hamilton aka Maps proves he is a sloppy researcher in this blog that is filled with factual errors. Read with caution and double check the facts.

Kia ora sandy

My impression of maps is that he is an excellent researcher and is blog is chocka blocka full of facts. Readers can make their own minds up but i agree with him.

Here is proof that Scott Hamilton is a sloppy researcher. In a reply to a comment from Sharon who corrected his facts on a 12th Feb 2010 post called A memo to Mubarak, from Kendrick Smithyman, Scott Hamilton acknowledges his own deficiencies. In this reply he also acknowledges that he has a drinking problem that results in his writing being half coherent.

Here it is: Apologies for my sloppiness Sharon! I was drawing on half-coherent recollections late at night under the influence of booze. Development studies is a noble field: I wish I had studied it...

Prof Ian Campbell, top Tongan historian says Scott Hamiltons book Stolen Island on 'Ata Island is 'A trivial, inconsequential piece of third-rate journalism'

I rate Scott very highly so I will have to discount campbell's opinion.
