""We want to eventually have a resources sticky with links and suggestions of good books, podcasts, etc""

And yet here we are in the year 2015 without such a thing. Let's change this, /his/torians: post up your resources and books you've found invaluable in your quest for knowledge.

And don't be a dick about it: don't just link something random. Try and give a very brief review of it, indicate why it's good and who its target audience would be. Introductory stuff is always going to be welcome, but sometimes it can be hard to find where to go next, so help your brothers out.

That's all great. But how do I know where to start? I mean, I understand that one would rather gain an in-depth knowledge of one particular period, but I'd love some kind of digest/choronology of best works to read about a particular period, at least when to comes to the West.

You know, like the charts they have for philosophy. Is there such a thing yet? I don't feel like reading lots of different stuff about disconnected events, otherwise I fear I might lose the bigger picture.

RULES 2016 EDITION

1. Obey global rules

2. Keep things related to history and its study.

2a. History, for the purposes of this board, covers pre-History and all events up to the fall of the Soviet Union. Further than that and it's considered political discussion or discussion of modern events- take it to /pol/ or /b/.

3. If lewd images must be posted, do so on spoilers. Consider if it wouldn't be better posted elsewhere.

3-a. If you're in doubt whether it's lewd enough to spoiler, err on the side of caution and do it.

GUIDELINES- not quite rules, but good to follow for good posting

1. Check the catalog before posting to see if a thread may already be available for your discussion.

1a. Avoid making threads expecting people to just do your homework for you. Show some work yourself in starting the discussion instead of just "guys what was the main reason for the fall of Sebastianism in the 19th century"

2. Be prepared to present good sources for anything you claim, especially if you come here to posit opinions you know are controversial.

3. This being 8ch, we don't want to limit what you can post about. That said, we'd like posts to be of a good quality level, and related to history. If your post contains nothing more than >IMPLYING NIGGERS HAD A CULTURE, consider if you aren't better off in /pol/.

4. If you have any problem with the moderation here, or suggestions, please post them here instead of making a thread for it (not really historical-related) or making one in whatever board about 8ch discussion is being used nowadays (I don't even know!)

In other words, don't be a dumbass. This board works fine with a semi-absent BO and a bunch of mods who delete CP bots. Don't ruin it.

(want to post banners, do so here too)

>Life was heavily reglimented, there were fixed castes, people were organized in communes that they weren't allowed to leave, and in the lower ranks, society was as egalitarian as it gets.

5a2127 No.41061

>>41059

>according to what I learned in school

Lel. And no, it wasn't socialist. Europe had estates, not castes. A caste is something you're born into and can never escape, which wasn't true in Europe. It was possible to join a monastery, to be nobilized and so on.

Europe also wasn't egalitarian, neither in spirit nor in organization. Not just that society was hierarchical (although there was more than one hierarchy), it was also individualistic. Absolutism and authoritarianism didn't become big until after the Reformation. Peru was fully collectivist, to the point where the armies panicked the second they were without a leader.

There are more differences. Serfdom wasn't as quite widespread as often portrayed, and serfs haf a claim to their land and the liege had no right to disown them. They worked on that land for two days for their liege and that was it, the rest belonged to them. In Peru, on the other hand, people were expected to always keep busy. That was official policy. They could also be displaced at any moment, like when the Inca thought a villae was becoming unruly. It would then be split up and the inhabitants scattered to prevent rebellion. Also, every community had a bunch of officials watching over them, zoning the land, keeping count of inhabitants and the food… their bookkeeping was impressive, really. The Incas held years worth of stocked food, I think, and they managed to avoid famines for centuries. They kept track of how much food was where and allocated it based on how much a particular community would need to consume. In that regard at least, I think the Incas deserve admiration. They didn't have the callous attitude of modern rulers towards their subjects, but rather genuinely cared that they would not suffer hunger.

>A caste is something you're born into and can never escape

That's not how castes worked for most of India's history. The fact that "caste" itself is a Spanish word says it all; the concept of caste system was imposed on India by European historians. Chinese travellers never mentioned any peculiarities about Indian social stratification, same with Muslim conquerors.

nope, that's varṇa not caste and describes estates, which again weren't that fixed.

let's look at historical examples:

Nanda dynasty: established by a shudra (who even called himself "destroyer of kshatriyas" proudly).

Maurya dynasty: established by a likely shudra, but later on claims texts claimed either brahmin or kshatriya heritage.

Shunga dynasty: established by a brahmin.

Gupta dynasty: established by a vaishya.

we can see that ruling families could come from all four estates originally; meanwhile, the "caste system" believers would claim only kshatriyas could be worldly rulers.

I figured out why I have always had a disliking for these cunts.

When I was young, the Germans and English I adored, the former more so than the latter, and I always preferred the way Europe looked before WWI. I never liked the way Old Glory and the Union Jack looked, preferring the flags of old.

I think I dislike the French, because the idea of a "France" came up around the time of the Revolution, and that was an absolute disaster for the future, the liberal ideals espoused from the time period. I don't have a problem with Normandy or Brittany, see, but the idea of an entire "France" is just icky to me.

Just a thought on a dead board.

Of these words "subversive" is the only one that barely captures the matyrdom complex and pathological need to sacrifice themselves for people who hate them that was animating the Bekennende Kirche and similar groups.

And exterminating a minority can also be accomplished by forcefully expelling them. Given that interwar Poland was treating all of it's minorities pretty badly (They were catholicizing Ukrainians for fucks sake. What is this, the 17th century?) it was only a matter of time before state sanctioned progroms would be used to drive them from their homes.

Not familiar with modern Chinese history. Who're the white-clothed Wojaks?

Also, why do people rip on Lindybeige? The only criticisms I can see are that he's somewhat liberal (and this does affect how he treats things, though he does tend to stay neutral) albeit a bit of an anglophile, and complains about the holocaust like an over-emotional twat. Despite this, he's specific with what he says ("I think that", "My theory is", etc.; in other words, if he doesn't know for sure, he'll say so). He was called a faggot (and I think autistic as well), but his mannerisms would only irk someone who is hurting inside.

>IQ

Yeah I probably shouldn't have used that as an example due to those tests being just educated guesses, but I still think I'm not entirely projecting here. Your case about the average European from before to the 19th century reminds me of another saying human behavior can largely be separated in constants and variables. The average European from back then didn't have much proper education and was encouraged by their parents, culture and government to be that way. Humans can be very much influenced by their parents, leaders and environments and as such can act very differently in different scenarios, yet there are still human constants and that man from centuries ago acted in some ways like we all do today. Could that man be educated, changed and inspired to become an intellectual? Of course he could just as a white man from ancient Greece could (though one or two thousand years will make some difference) but the problem which the average Africans have faced for the last 100 years is that they cannot and will not be educated or influenced in that way. You can teach an sub-Saharan child something for hours and he will forget it he next day, they have to put up billboards to remind them the most basic things, their intellect is still a variable but very restricted. This racial difference stems from living over a thousand years in such conditions not counting the inbreeding and great environment that encouraged very little change in behavior or genetics. The white man from 10 thousand years ago needed practical thinking to be able to make things quickly, a strong feeling of empathy in a cold harsh environment were a single life was more precious than resources and abstract thinking evolving from the constant need to adapt. With the agricultural revolution and formation of civilizations the average white man no longer needed to think this way constantly and their behavior shifted. Only now in the last 100 years has the need for the average man to adopt a different way of life necessitated such a change. I might be projecting a bit but that's my take of things, would explain why after so long education in Africa is still so painful to do and why the rate geniuses found in Africa is lower than that of whites.

Exactly, and that's why I'm arguing that the more tribe/family oriented African man is still culturally in that phase. What changed the European man? Personally, I'm inclined to say that it's been centralised government, nationalist militarisation during 19th century, followed by horrors of WW1. All this thoroughly separated the European man from its tribal roots, as well as culled the plebs (who perished in wars). American man, meanwhile, became out of individualists who gave up their previous identities, and thus had to stand on their own too.

Why not?

So are public facilities in the West. Everything is marked where you have to go, there's checklists hanging around so you don't forget a step, so yeah I think the western man is reminded just in the same manner. And let's not forget the commercials for hygienic products which also "remind" us.

All right, now look at internal data for India. Fact is, the Dravidian south is more technologically and scientifically developed than the north. One should blame Islam rather than skin tone.

>black people are bad, look at how bad nigger scum in the US is

One thing rarely mentioned: West Africa was a caste society. So when they sold people to slavers, they sold those that were considered scum back in Africa already. During the 19th century, all blacks that weren't scum interbred with whites (look at cases of high yellows) which further lowered down the quality of gene pool of American blacks. Meanwhile, Nigerians are the most educated ethnic group in US – why? because in their case, the selection is just the opposite, the few Nigerians that go to US immigrate for higher education and high paying jobs. The plebs meanwhile migrate to UK so Nigerians in the UK are quite the opposite of Nigerians in US.

As for the redistribution thing in the first pic you posted; this exactly described what is wrong with Africa. Socialism.

Europe wasn't tribal for over two thousand years, or not in the sense that Africa was. Sure, kinship meant a lot more than it does now, but still, we were individualistic back then. Back in the Middle Ages, even serfs had individual rights that they could hold against their lord. I'm not aware of any other society that had such a thing as individual rights, certainly not in the "lower" classes or estates.

The phenomena you mentioned - militarization, nationalism etc. - got big after the French Revolution. That was indeed about the time when kinship became far less important, but do did all other values. The French Revolution was a leftist uprising through and through, it entailed a destruction of the past and worship of the future, including future values.

The plebs weren't killed either, they got an education. Mandatory schooling became big in Prussia, I think, then Napoleon copied it, although it stood firmly in the tradition of the Revolution. The idea was to make every man a good voter. As a result, we now have a country where everyone can read, everyone is competent enough to vote, but if you ask your countrymen who the last three presidents were, half of them wont know. Such is the world of public schooling. It's all about good averages, or - more cynically - mediocrity.

*I mean, in greater deal. I know what it is, but how can they call themselves "infamous"? Who would consider them infamous?

So, probably one of the worst kingdoms in medieval history is Burgundy. They had it all, wealth and power.. But they wasted it, along with their own kingdom. One such person to blame for the kingdom's loss and disappearance from the map would be Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy. He foolishly decided that Switzerland would be a good target to expand his middle kingdom between France and Germany, much like the Lotharingians of old. Except this Lotharingia would be called, "Burgundy". But Philip failed conquering Switzerland and his hopes of having a significant middle kingdom died out, with him. As he was killed at the Battle of Nancy by the Swiss and the Duke of Lorraine, 1477 AD.

You know what that makes Burgundy? A fucking failure, and it makes Philip a huge fucking faggot! :^)

Do you agree, /his/?

Why hate on it? History's underdogs have their own charm and the idea of an alternate Burgundy consolidating a major European power between Krautistan and the Big Blue Blob is an amazing one.

And it left a great heraldic legacy. Is there a better saltire than the Cross of Burgundy?

You will never amount to Charlemagne, face it. Paganfags need not apply.

>he had such immense trouble with writing that he would only ever sign documents with a single letter.

I've heard that he was illiterate indeed and that it's one of the reasons why he promoted culture, but he was at least able to sign documents as "Karolus" in the style of plenty of kings at the time.
