comment Should “The history of X” be followed by “began” or “begins”?
Google n-gram shows an equal mix in the 20th century: books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=history+of+*+begins%2Chistory+of+*+‌​began&year_start=1900 but a preference for "begins" in the 21st: books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=history+of+*+begins%2Chistory+of+*+‌​began&year_start=1900 , perhaps influenced by a small number of works which are often quoted.
