In order for this board to work, everybody here needs to have a solid foundation to work with. We must make a concerted effort to promote reading history books when not posting. Therefore, I must ask, what is the last history related book you've read and what are you planning on reading next?

It's not racist enough for him.

>you MUST believe in absolute free speech

Because if you don't try to understand all ideas you end up with people who want to burn books.

Have you heard of this guy Zinn?
>Last: Coolidge

>Next: The Forgotten Man
The Measure of Civilization: How Social Development Decides the Fate of Nations by Ian Morris

It was fascinating, but a bit dull in spots. Obviously it deals in some rather broad strokes but still manages to support the arguments with evidence and statistical methods, as well as support the arguments of the preceding volume, 'Why the West Rules—For Now: The Patterns of History, and What They Reveal About the Future', which dealt in even broader strokes and was rather more fun.

Oh man... I love /his/ so far because people actually make jokes that are intellectual. thank you No. 14882
This must be a painful and depressing read. Reading that holocaust denial thread made me want to gouge my eyes out.
Is the march of folly a good /his/ read?
I read it just to hear about Willy's sex dreams about his mother. Wasn't disappointed
I hope that is a joke. That is propaganda disguised as an History book.
Not saying we should burn books, but some ideas just aren't worth trying to understand.
Nobody's got any suggestions?
this is a bad idea that should not be. it is directly responsible for the decline of our civilization.
Not history, but still /his/.

I've been working through Being and Time, and it's steadily blowing my mind. It was incredibly difficult to grasp at first, but once you get a sense for the language he uses it gets easier. Throughout all my history of studying philosophy I've never been as "convinced" by someone. Really good read.
