/his/ books

This is a blue board which means that it's for everybody (Safe For Work content only). If you see any adult content, please report it.

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?

>Last: Into Africa

>Next: A History of the American People

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.

This must be a painful and depressing read. Reading that holocaust denial thread made me want to gouge my eyes out.

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.
