Books about colonialism in Africa? I'm looking for shit that covers colonialism from 1500 to now. I really want to learn about the independence movements, the neo-colonial wars, and the old colonial wars (Boers, Germany's genocide in South Africa, shit like that).

Hi, /freedu/. I'm hankering to get deep into a few subjects on my own, but so many years after having left school, and not being particularly productive, I have low energy and a minimal attention span. I'm strongly trying to restrain my particularly bad internet browsing habits that encourage me to spend the least effort to entertain myself, but I was wondering if there are any books that can help me be a better study. I'm tired of feeling lifeless.

Mhhh not really sure.

As I grow up, I feel the best bet is: little & often. Getting in the habit of doing something (say daily) sticks with you and becomes effortless after a while.


 No.1857

There's some really good stuff in this course, not sure if it's free.

https://www.coursera.org/learn/learning-how-to-learn?action=enroll

I have a bad browsing habit too, one thing I find that helps is to just stare out the window for a little bit to let my mind reset. There's some science to this, you need to give your brain a break to make connections from the things you've learned. It's called the Default Mode Network if you're interested.

How about some free textbooks?

Analytic Combinatorics: http://algo.inria.fr/flajolet/Publications/book.pdf

Analytic combinatorics is an extremely useful field for computer scientists and also programmers without much background in rigorous mathematics. It allows for detailed analysis of algorithms without the overhead of Knuth-style proofs of classical mathematical correctness.

SICP: http://web.mit.edu/alexmv/6.S184/sicp.pdf
Classic intdroductory computer science text.

Practical Common Lisp: http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/
An intermediate-level introduction to Common Lisp. I'd recommend getting familiar with a Lisp before diving into this.

Hey people and peepits, so seeing that a lot of anarchy boards appear dead and the mods gave the others that where up for claim away before I could get to them; I decided to create my own.

New to the whole board scene and not looking to steal anybody else's shine but I want to play my part in trying to make a difference in this messed up world. And creating a board for proper intellectual discussion seemed the limit of my reach at the moment. So if anybody sees this and is interested in visiting go ahead.

Does anybody have a PDF of J.L. Granstein’s “Who Killed Canadian History?” It would be very much appreciated.

Also general historical literature thread. I would highly recommend “Labour’s Untold Story” by Richard Boyer and Herbert Morais.

So Libcom's search function is completely fucked, anyone have Théorie Communiste's "An Introduction to some Young Lyonese", at least I think that's the name, only have it in Swedish: https://www.riff-raff.se/8/tc_lyonesare.php

On that note, for all Swedes, check out http://www.krigsmaskinen.se/index.php/Huvudsida, it's basically a wiki for leftcoms.

Should actually get around to make a list of leftcom sites.
