Just got all of these, which one should I read first?
I suppose the best one would be from the cradle of situation, then move up as I am rather sure that the later civilizations reference to earlier ones.
Will give you some motivation knowing that you are working towards the "end" of it all.
Otherwise you may just read African kingdoms and tell us if it was WE WUZ tier or not.
What 10 philosophical works would you bring to a desert island? You will have to read them until the rest of your days. So choose wisely.
Is Orientalism a real thing? And if so, how can one study the history of Eastern countries without engaging in it?
most of IRL /his/torians become "muh-study-subject"aboo so its no rare thing to find books of asian cultures written with bulshitic bias.
Its really difficult to be truly neutral (not in pro nor in con) on your studies since if you start to hate your subject, you usually drop it and if you dont get too engaged to it you would usually just scrape the surface.
So Yes, orientalism is real specially among those people who have to face those cultures day by day. Funny thing, westaboos also exist
France's greatest leader was an Italian
Germany's greatest leader was an austrian
Britain's greatest leader was a toad
I am writing a paper over how the Kennedy administration handled the Cuban Missile Crisis. It's a historography paper so I'm writing about historians and critics' points of view of how well or poorly the Kennedy Admin. handled the situation. Right now I'm in a slump. Any help would be appreciated!
Kennedy displayed brilliance in using the "Compellence Theory" of International Relations. By threatening massive consequence for the placement of weapons on Cuba, Kennedy scared the Soviets into removing their warheads.
By bringing them back to a "red line", as it is known, Kennedy had successfully achieved his aims of preventing a strategical disaster for the US.
Why does /his/ never talk about arabian poetry and history? Arabian poetry is some of the most eloquent and based shit ive read, though it might not be relatable to you all as you all do not speak arabic.
All I remember from 1001 Nights is that Arabs consider black people to be monkeys; that sex with black people was considered bestiality; and that their wives always seemed to be drawn to the help.
Who should of been the proper successor of Muhammad (pbuh) as caliph?
To theists on /his/: it what ways do you justify or back up the idea that God or the deity you believe in has a will, a mind, opinions, and things of the like? This isn't intended to be an attack, I just want to hear your point of view. Thanks.
The wonderful thing about faith is that you don't need anything to back it up. A theist can prove God by shrugging his shoulders. This is why theists will be the death of wisdom in the world
What went wrong?
Looks pretty Roman to me desu senpai
What led to the rise of popularity in Neoliberalism and why did it happen when it did?
Keynesian economics got btfo when stagflation turned out to be possible during the 70s. People in the US looked at places like Germany and Chile that were supposedly pretty successful under neoliberal policies and decided to do it here. This culminated in the Washington Consensus which the US has been advancing globally since the 80s, which incidentally keeps the poor poor and the rich rich.
Are you some kind of retard? This has literally nothing to do with who is to blame for the Arab Israeli Conflict, and nowhere in my post did I say anything about who's to blame for that. Up until then, Keynesians basically thought that stagflation was impossible and said that the Phillips Curve could not shift. Well low and behold, the oil shock comes around and stagflation is possible, the Phillips Curve can shift. This pretty much completely discredited them and legitimized the Austrians and Monetarists.

/his/ I am in need of assistance. I am currently trying to write an essay demonstrating some of the similarities between Scandinavian odinsim and Roman paganism in my world history class. The problem is that I need at least a few primary sources of things like their practices and accounts that show their attitudes towards the gods and I have been unable to locate anything except some documents on mythology. Can any of you recommend any primary sources for Norse practices or databases full of this sort of thing?
I'm thinking of including a section on apotheosis, but my biggest issue is trying to find primary sources, especially with the Scandinavians. I didn't realize going into this that most of our literature on Norse worship was written after the conversion to Christianity. I think that our professor wants heavy emphasis on what we can figure out oursleves from the firsthand writings of the groups we chose.

You expected snowniggers to have developed narrative literature?
Tell me about the Central African Empire
what do y'all think about it?
Since we know that Cro Magnum humanoids have been inhabiting italy for near 28,000 years, doesnt that blow a huge hole in the theory??
Does capitalism produce good art? Does the profit motive lead to lowest common denominator nonsense? I think Oscar Wilde thought that man could be the moat aesthetically successful under socialism. Thoughts? Pic unrelated
Most true communist are vehemently against intellectual property, so i can't see art thriving under communism.
Good art has been produced under capitalism, and it is arguable that capitalism created those conditions which made the art possible.
>inb4 soviet union...
Soviet Union wasn't communist, remember? Communists seem to conveniently forget this fact when art or science comes up
