I enjoyed God's War (even though it is, like you said, a bit dry), but I recall reading somewhere that one of the chapters (the one about the Albigensian Crusade) had some pretty major mistakes and/or oversights. I think the criticism is from an online book review so I'm not sure how trustworthy it is.

This is awsome news that I somehow managed to miss. Holland is one of my favorite writers. There is one thing that's been bugging me that someone here could probably clear up. Are there any differences in content between naked and passed out The Forge of Christendom and pussy in booty shorts Millenium?

Anyway, here's a quick run down of some of the books I found enjoyable (in no particular order):

girls sex free clips The Pursuit of Glory - Tim Blanning : Describes Europe (rulers, ordinary people, economy, politics, culture) from 1648 to 1815.

alma fear 2 sex The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt - Toby Wilkinson : Covers Egyptian history from the earliest days to Cleopatra. Starts out slow, but picks up speed around a third in. The author really likes to point out that Egyptian rulers were horrible nepotistic despots and does so quite frequently.

oral sex hiv aids Peter the Great - Derek Wilson : A short but entertaining biography of Peter the great.

free sex machines porn Lords of the Horizon - Jason Goodwin : A narrative history of the Ottoman Empire. Actually it reads more like a travel book, meanders a lot and uses European travelers' accounts for sources, so while I guess it wouldn't be great from a scholarly perspective, I enjoyed it.

tiny girl nude pics Iron Kingdom - Christopher Clark : A history of Prussia that covers 1600-1947. Really easy to read, one of my favorites.

tube8 sex free videos Europe's Tragedy - Peter H. Wilson : A history of the Thirty Years War, very comprehensive. Gives a great introduction explaining the workings of the HRE, causes of the war, etc. I did however find it pretty difficult to follow until I got a grasp of which city/bishopric was where and managed to start remembering names.

family guy brian porn Victoria's Wars - Saul David : Covers a few wars during Queen Victoria's reign (The Opium Wars, First Afghan War, Sikh Wars, Crimea, Invasion of Burma, Indian Revolt), describing the strategic situation and tactical situation for some of the more important battles. Between each 'war' chapter there's a chapter describing the domestic situation.

adriana patridge nude pics Crimea - Orlando Figes : Like the title says, covers the Crimean War. Really well written, burned through it in two days. Describes both the strategic and political situations, as well as the aftermath.


I've been looking for a book on the Normans (specifically Norman exploits in southern Italy). I'm thinking of getting Norwich's hot emo naked girls The Normans in the South, 1016-1130, but I was wondering if anyone had any other recommendations?

lady gaga nude fake Postwar by Tony Judt is a fantastic history of Europe from 1945 to the beginning of the 21st century. Whilst long, it is very readable and I was never bored. He covers a variety of different aspects of the period, including cultural and intellectual trends. His treatment of the more difficult issues of this period are excellent, particularly the consequences and implications of the holocaust and European intellectuals sympathy towards communists. In many ways I felt that he covers Britain in this period worst, possibly because he lived there for much of this period causing him to pick out incidental, although still engaging, things.

It's very recent history really, but at the minuit i'm reading kate walsh nude pics Shake Hands With The Devil - The Failure Of Humanity In Rwanda by Lt. Gen. Romeo Dallaire.

The classical civilizations of Greece and Rome once dominated the world, and they continue to fascinate and inspire us. Classical art and architecture, drama and epic, philosophy and politics--these are the foundations of Western civilization. In The Classical World, eminent classicist Robin Lane Fox brilliantly chronicles this vast sweep of history from Homer to the reign of Augustus. From the Peloponnesian War through the creation of Athenian democracy, from the turbulent empire of Alexander the Great to the creation of the Roman Empire and the emergence of Christianity, Robin Lane Fox serves as our witty and trenchant guide. He introduces us to extraordinary heroes and horrific villains, great thinkers and blood-thirsty tyrants. Throughout this vivid tour of two of the greatest civilizations the world has ever known, we remain in the hands of a great master.

eliza dushku nude pic A Short History of Byzantium

Probably the most readable book on this topic, given how the Byzantines either appear as a footnote in books about Western Europe in the Middle Ages or are the subject of massive tomes with millions of footnotes. The author condensed his three-volume series into one book. It is quite readable and he describes very well a number of odd characters. If you like constant infighting, warfare, conquests and usurpations, this is for you! Seriously, you are lacking in knowledge about the world if you don't learn about the Byzantines. It takes serious skill to condense 1000 years of history into a few hundred pages. However, like most books about the Byzantines, it is the best when describing the conquest of Constantinople. If you are interested in Turkey and the Ottomans, also start here.



sex on the ebach Dracula, Prince of Many Faces: His Life and His Time

Hurr...a book about vampires. Wrong! I think most educated people know that Dracula the novel was based on a real life person. This book explores the actual Prince Dracula and his whole milieu of Eastern Europe in the middle to late 15th century. Another good book for those who are interested in the Ottomans, as Dracula's whole life was basically shaped by the power struggle between the nascent Ottoman Empire and Hungary. It also has some great Machiavellian twists and turns.

I also highly recommend the Colleen McCullough books about Rome. For historical fiction, they are very well researched and the characters have motivations and behaviors that really seem foreign to the modern reader because they are generals and senators of Rome and normal people today don't deal with that poo poo.

It's kind of like a greatest hits album, but done well. It focuses on 7 or 8 key periods. I think this book came out around the same time as the BBC docu-drama (which I wasn't too impressed with - lovely casting etc).

But the book is almost entirely a political history.

Somebody earlier in the thread was asking about sex lives of cannibles. I'm a big fan of this book. Some of the more outlandish numbers are speculative, but Mann warns about those. I think the basic thesis is quite sound, and I don't think anyone who reads this will think of American Indians in the same way.

I've got a counter to Antony Beevor's Stalingrad, which I'll confess I haven't read. But I have read Michael Jones' book on the subject, naked asian men pictures From what I understand, Jones wrote this as a response to Beevor's book, which apparently had some inaccuracies. It's almost entirely dedicated to the Red Army; if you're interested in the Germans, look elsewhere. Jones also has a book on the Leningrad siege which I'm reading now. Harrowing stuff.

jennifer morrison fake nude is a very interesting book about a subject I knew nothing about before I picked up the book. It chronicles the means by which the Conquistadors conquered the Inca Empire, and also the little known revolt that almost succeeded in toppling Pizarro. This book is great at showing how much the Europeans' success was built on disease, pitting one native group against another, and sheer dumb luck.

world hottest girl naked

Yeah, really fucked to death porn that John Birmingham, the Aussie who wrote He Died With A Felafel In His Hand and those terribly overblown "World War 2.1" alternate history novels (which are awesome in their own way).

Leviathan is billed as "The unauthorised biography of Sydney", and covers Sydney's less savoury history from the time of the first convict settlers to modern aboriginal and trade union issues. Birmingham doesn't gently caress about, he describes in detail a lot of stuff that you'll never, ever hear about in high school history.

It might not be hot sex with dogs that interesting if you're not an Aussie, but it's a real eye opener when you compare it to the history you're taught in schools here.

Just as an example, most schoolkids know that early in our history, we had a Governor Bligh in charge of Sydney. What kids generally mother son sex clips aren't taught, but is detailed in Leviathan, is that it was the same Bligh who was captain of the HMS Bounty during the famous "mutiny on the Bounty", and that he was also mutinied against by the colonial military in Sydney, who trained artillery on Government house and marched him away at bayonet point. There's a very detailed account of that earlyish in the book, including the inconsistent stories from various sources. Birmingham keeps on going in that general tone, and it's really well written, although a bit upsetting in places, especially when he starts talking about 20th century urban poor and aboriginal youth.

Jones disagrees with Beevor about how many Soviet soldiers were executed, the orthodox view of Pavlov's House, the details of other engagements like the battle for the Railway, the start of the sniper movement, and a jillion other things. The book really feels like a response to Beevor's work, and Jones spends a large part of his book debunking him.

The basic thesis of Jones' book is that the Soviets didn't win by just throwing more men at the Germans, but by good decisions by their leadership and unbreakable morale. From what I could gather, Beevor reinforces the traditional view that the Soviets mindlessly threw themselves against the guns of the Germans until they beat them into submission. Jones writes that that would be impossible; the Soviets were often outnumbered, had less armored support, and had given up complete air superiority. But the Soviets had good officers, and for the first time in the war, Stalin let them make informed decisions without political oversight. They developed new tactics and somehow managed to keep on fighting despite suffering huge casualties.

I haven't read Beevor's book, so I can't comment on his scholarship, but Jones' claims seem very well supported. His book is almost entirely focused on the Soviet side, and the fighting inside the city itself, so if you're interested in other parts of the battle, you won't find much in here.

A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to take a class on Chinese history, in which we used Spence's sex pictures of bollywood The Search for Modern China as a major textbook. I greatly enjoyed reading through that, but regret that the class never looked into pre-modern Chinese history. Are there any books with similar scale/depth/feel covering ancient and medieval Chinese history?

I recently listened to joanna krupa nude calendar A Savage War of Peace: Algeria 1954-1962 by Alistair Horne, and it was tremendous although quite long from an audio perspective! No regrets, though. Highly recommended! I went from knowing zilch about Algeria and France during this time period to feeling very well informed.

It provides a really intense, reflective study of the Algerian revolution against France, the turmoil and systemic abuses of France's colonial establishment, and the struggles between the native and French populations of Algeria.

The book jacket sets the stakes well:

quote:

The Algerian War lasted from 1954 to 1962. It brought down six French governments, led to the collapse of the Fourth Republic, returned de Gaulle to power, and came close to provoking a civil war on French soil. More than a million Muslim Algerians died in the conflict and as many European settlers were driven into exile. Above all, the war was marked by an unholy marriage of revolutionary terror and repressive torture.

What I may have liked most about this history is that it is very much concerned with telling the Algerian side of the story, and it is very even handed in how it treats both the French and the Algerians.

For anyone else interested in listening to long rear end histories, hide sex age location Postwar by Tony Judt is another great and long read (as someone already mentioned). I should add that the readers for both of these book are quite skilled and professional, if you want to go that route.

I like free hairy pussy tgp The Shadow of the Sword, if only because it goes into a lot of detail regarding Sassanian Persia and Late Antique Mesopotamia, which is often missing in coverage of the period. The writing style also reminded me of a mixture of Edward Gibbon and Peter Brown, which is always a good thing. Although Holland is right in saying that Islam is rooted within Late Antiquity, and that the boundaries of the relgion were in flux up to the eighth century (see the role of Jerusalem in Early Islam), I don't completely agree with his sceptical view regarding the origins of Islam (.i.e. his speculation re: that Mecca and the Hijaz was not the cultic birthplace of the first 'Muslim Believers), as surely if Mecca didn't have any significance, there would be a lot more noise about it, especially from the many enemies of the Ummayad dynasts, who had a vested interest in making them look un-Islamic?

Anyway, I'd recommend Peter Brown's fat old women pussy The World of Late Antiquity, an amazing little book that made the study of the period of Late Antiquity a significant part of the study of medieval and ancient history in the discipline today.

Sereny uses her exhaustive study of Speer's life to veer off on all sorts of tangents as to the general circumstances, questioning peoples motivations and explanations. A few odd samples (quotes heavily paraphrased from memory):

- Speer's mother joins the Nazi party early in its history, solely because she saw a group of brownshirts marching in the street and "they were so energetic and the only ones who were proud to be German"
- Some other supporters say that they were unaware of Nazi's anti-semitism, apparently genuinely. Speer reports that the first time he saw Hitler talk, he found him quiet and bookish, quite intellectual & eager to listen to people.
- However, note that there's a revealing passage where Speer is asked if he is anti-semitic. He strenuously denies it, before stumbling "No, of course not. Well, no more than anyone else. I mean, you can't help but feel nervous around those people ..."
- Others report that they saw the party as the only way out of Germany's economic & political woes, and thought that the rough edges would be worn off the party by the time it came to power. And as someone quips, if Hitler had died in 1937, he would be remembered as one of the great German statesmen. He did fix the economy, he did rebuild the country.
- Finally, Sereny is perplexed by how many Germans profess to not have understood what was going on, or have been ignorant or out of the loop, sometimes in implausible circumstances. She interviews a few unrepentant veterans who sneer at this selective memory: "They all voted for Hitler, they all supported him and knew exactly what was going on."

So, no single simple answer, but a whole host of them.

The happiest waffligator


These past few weeks I've been reading books that cover the history of a very specific subject. Don't know if there's a term for these. I've read nasty girls having sex Bread: A Global History, which was good and black girl having sex Library: An Unquiet History, which was great. Do these count as history books? If so, can someone recommend similar books?

Edit: On any topic, really. I just really like the amount of detail and history behind even the simplest of things. It reminded me of a time my teacher completely forgo a whole class to talk about the wonders that is the small intestine. Though if you have one about doors I would love to read it.

Mark Kurlansky's books on salt, codfish, and Basques (among other things) fall into this category.

(That's Basques as in Spanish car-bombers, not ladies' undergarments.)

If you read girls have naked sex Salt be sure to get the Kindle version or hardcover because the paperback has a huge glaring mistake about the Albigensian Crusade. It's only a small thing, but the errors in the only subject I knew about wrecked my trust in the rest of the book. It was a real pity because it was a fascinating idea for a book and pretty well handled otherwise.

You might also like the simpsons porn video Cocaine by Dominic Streatfield and maybe Oliver Sacks' and James Burke's books, although they're not exactly what you say you're looking for.

The Arcana is the means by which all is revealed.

Can anyone recommend a book on the history of religions? I'm looking for something that talks about how how various religions borrow from each other and are intertwined.

McPhee's got one on Oranges that everyone loves.

There's also Steven Solomon's recent "Water", but with the subtitle, "The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power, and Civilization," it's not so narrow a topic.

What I may have liked most about this history is that it is very much concerned with telling the Algerian side of the story, and it is very even handed in how it treats both the French and the Algerians.



Read the Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon. Fanon worked as a psychiatric during the war and treated Algerians who had been tortured by the French. The book is about how violence is necessary for a people to fight it's oppressors it also talks about how violence affects people and uses his patients as examples.

Can someone recommend some works on Western Europe and North Africa from ~500AD-1000AD? I've done a tiny bit of reading on the Franks and Visigoths, but nothing on Italy, Germany, or England and the whole period fascinates me.

Fanon is a really, really intense read. I'm reading it now for some work I'm doing on the German New Left, and it's the kind of book that drains you while you're reading it a lot of the time. But, yeah, it's really interesting, and one of the foundational works for discourse about colonialism.

So I'm really on a history kick now, burning through a few of the suggestions in this thread and it has me thinking; Are there any books about native american history? Is there much about that sort of thing at all? I'm basically wholly ignorant of an entire continent's history pre-1600s.
