>>47984 currently reading Colossus. Bought it without noticing that its already 10 years old, and that it was written right after the Iraq fiasco. Its going to be a rather different type of reading than I originally thought, especially considering the huge ammount of stuff that happened since then that has everything to do with the theme of the book
You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!
Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bait to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!
Macculloch is good, I have been reading wheatcroft's habsburgs : embodying empire and while it seems a little bit spotty on details on many of the habsburgs (particularly the earlier ones) it was great for Charles V and Philip II (and Ferdinand if you want to count him). It very Much seems to focus more on the family itself than the history, so it is good for understanding the functions of a dynasty but not all that good for learning the events of Austrian and Spanish history.
>>49811 At least you don't agree with the more Marxist schools of Rude and Lefebvre. I always prefered Cobban and Ellis(I think that's his name, I am studying the Tudors as well so that may be a early modern historian) to schama though.
