2018-01-19 00:48:50 UTC

Hello. Can anyone recommend to me a book or series of books on the general history of Europe?

2018-01-19 02:48:06 UTC

@HernanCortes That’d be a fat ass series my dude

2018-01-19 03:29:01 UTC

Yeah I feared so

2018-01-19 03:29:36 UTC

I just don’t know where to begin. I think I heard Vox Day mention a series on one of his live streams?

2018-01-19 03:30:03 UTC

Sounded very good from what I remember but probably very long and expensive

2018-01-19 03:30:47 UTC

@HernanCortes Is there a particular region or period of interest?

2018-01-19 03:31:13 UTC

I suppose after the fall of Rome would do

2018-01-19 03:31:36 UTC

And Western Europe more so than Eastern Europe

2018-01-19 03:37:13 UTC

This isn't exactly what you're looking for, but it's definitely worth a read.


2018-01-19 03:37:43 UTC

Looks very interesting, thanks

2018-01-19 03:40:02 UTC

This is incredibly short, but hilarious. A mix of history/philosophy.

Cataclysm 90 BC: The Forgotten War That Almost Destroyed Rome by Philip Matyszak


2018-01-26 04:08:26 UTC

@HernanCortes If you're interested in reading primary sources I could gather a few works in the western canon for you to read. They are probably on PDF. Most contemporaneous accounts from medieval and early modern aren't too long either.

2018-01-26 04:08:58 UTC

Especially if you're interested in Crusades

2018-01-26 17:38:11 UTC

Yeah, that sounds like something I would be interested in

2018-01-26 17:38:39 UTC

After thinking it over for a while, though, I’d like some help finding books on the history of individual European nations/peoples

2018-01-26 17:38:46 UTC

I have a book on the history of Spain

2018-01-26 17:38:59 UTC

I’d like to get some on the history of the British isles and France, for example

2018-01-26 17:52:27 UTC


This is a great primer on the ideological and political forces that shaped modern France.

Excellent, thank you

2018-02-07 00:55:44 UTC


2018-02-07 03:37:40 UTC

I haven't read this yet, but came across and figured some might like to have it, supposedly the missing chapters of 200 Years Together:


2018-02-18 00:18:45 UTC

@SamanthaM i am interested in a book on European history. I want something that is very broad based and general. A book that covers many major topics and events from a very high level. Basically i am looking for a book that is a mile wide and an inch deep so to speak. Do you have any in mind?

2018-02-18 00:19:26 UTC

@Zyzz Hmm. Lemme look through the collection.

2018-02-18 00:24:46 UTC


2018-02-18 00:25:19 UTC

This was one of the first European history books I read. It’s pretty broad, and although there’s some slant, it’s not bad for the most part

2018-02-18 00:27:04 UTC

@Karl Definitely a great recommendation.

2018-02-18 00:28:02 UTC

Thanks @Karl

2018-02-18 00:42:12 UTC

@Zyzz Ok, so I would definitely start with the book @Karl recommended. Great primer.

2018-02-18 00:43:24 UTC

I'm also kind of slow with reading history, so what I really liked about this book is that it's divided into six parts, each corresponding to an important era in the development of European identity

2018-02-18 00:43:29 UTC

This is the first part of a set which is a sweeping overview of Western development. Also slightly biased.


2018-02-18 00:44:13 UTC

This is the second book in a series that's older and more detailed. Not a long read if you commit.


2018-02-18 00:45:58 UTC

If you have the money, I would consider picking up a set of history books by Will and Ariel Durant. Biased (easy to clear through) but incredibly holistic. The only part that's completely inaccurate is in relation to the French Revolution.


2018-02-18 00:48:40 UTC

Lastly, this might be almost unfindable, but it's a four part series on the history of the world (really just the West). Written in 1890. Mildly anti-Catholic, so be warned. Absolutely fantastic in depth.

2018-02-18 00:49:05 UTC

Sorry, this is the pic


2018-02-18 00:49:36 UTC

Thank you @SamanthaM

2018-02-18 00:50:20 UTC

Samantha has a library in her home. #LifeGoals

2018-02-18 00:51:58 UTC

Also! Forgot! This is a wonderful overview of the people, places, and ideas that have shaped the Western cultural landscape.


2018-02-18 00:53:05 UTC

This one is great too, in terms of familiarizing oneself with differences in regional culture.


2018-02-18 00:55:21 UTC

If anyone is interested, some of these books are out for loan, so feel free to message if you want one to borrow. @everyone

2018-02-18 00:56:00 UTC

You're a legend

2018-02-18 00:58:09 UTC

@John O - Thank you?

2018-02-18 00:59:42 UTC

Kek, 😘

2018-02-18 01:01:02 UTC

You're a treasure, Samantha

2018-02-18 01:03:31 UTC

Thanks :) Just my job, lol.

2018-02-18 01:04:29 UTC

Treasure : a quantity of precious metals, gems, or other valuable objects. Sounds like you're objecifying wamen

2018-02-18 01:04:40 UTC

oh no

Oi Vey. Sounds serious

2018-02-18 02:19:00 UTC

Both books are about Rhodesia

2018-02-19 21:42:47 UTC

I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good book on their Spanish heritage. 🇪🇸


2018-02-19 22:21:17 UTC

@SamanthaM I think you should be our resident librarian :). Do you have a good suggestion for a book on Franco or the Falange? Thanks.

2018-02-19 22:24:12 UTC

@Zyzz Lol, glad you asked. Just picked this up on Amazon. 100% recommend. There's another good one that I'll post later.


2018-02-19 22:30:26 UTC

Also, anything by Antonio Primo de Rivera is absolutely essential!

2018-02-21 07:03:39 UTC

For those interested in a cultural history of Europe, I recommend From Dawn to Decadence by Jacques Barzun. Here is an excerpt.

2018-04-01 04:05:09 UTC

@SamanthaMyour welcome hon😉❤

2018-04-01 16:24:40 UTC

Not our guy but he doesn’t shy away from mentioning all the chosen people and their role in the Soviet Union.


2018-04-01 18:12:17 UTC


2018-04-01 18:12:48 UTC

Great book on the Jewish Communist subversion and infiltration of the Catholic Church.

2018-04-01 19:07:50 UTC

@nils One of the most fantastic books on the decline of Church power! Highly recommend.

2018-04-18 03:52:38 UTC

Just throwing this out there, I’m a grad student of “modern” European history, so if any of y’all are ever curious about anything (especially regarding the prototypes to our movement and inspiring ideological, political and philosophical figures) just give me a shout. If I know the topic you’re curious about I’ll eventually get back to you. I love discussing the stuff so it’s no obligation to me

2018-05-01 04:17:57 UTC

anyone have any books to recommend about the Byzantine empire?

2018-05-02 17:40:28 UTC

@Gaius Mucius Scaevola Lost to the West by Lars Brownworth if you want a good survey, or The Byzantine Empire by Charles Oman if you like Victorian histories

2018-05-17 05:39:21 UTC

I've heard it claimed often in Identitarian/alt-right circles that the ancient Greeks and Romans were much closer in appearence to modern north/north-west Europeans than the people who live in those countries today due to miscegination over time. Does anyone know what evidence there is for this claim?

2018-05-17 16:27:27 UTC

@Travis - IN It’s not true. Modern greeks have more north euro ancestry today because of slav invasions in the 7th and 8th centuries

2018-05-29 04:55:58 UTC

The author of the piece is an interesting guy - was involved in the British far right for a while

2018-06-16 01:34:10 UTC

Russia in Flames: War, Revolution, Civil War, 1914 - 1921 by Laura Engelstein


2018-06-16 01:38:15 UTC

Author does a good job of covering the usually ignored uprisings of non Slavs in the periphery of the old Empire, but ignores Idel-Ural completely and has some minor errors

2018-06-16 01:53:49 UTC

some minor factual errors. Mazepa defected to the Swedes, not the Poles. Also the reactionaries weren't completely delusional in attributed Grand Duke Sergey's assassination to the Jews - the author leaves out Dora Brilliant's role in the bombing

2018-08-09 20:22:35 UTC

Newest pickup

2018-08-09 20:22:58 UTC

Got the landmark Caesar campaigns for 29.99 originally a 65$ collection

2018-08-09 20:23:10 UTC

Gonna probably collect the other landmark series

2018-08-09 20:23:19 UTC

Been really into the folio society books lately as well

2018-08-10 03:27:26 UTC

@Kingfish landmark Thucydides is good

2018-10-26 02:46:20 UTC

If anybody is interested, I’ve been reading a lot of German/Austrian intellectual history from 1750-1970 the past few months.
If that interests anybody, just ask me for suggestions

2018-10-26 02:46:30 UTC

I’ll help if I can

The Passion of the Western Mind: Understanding the Ideas that Have Shaped Our World View by Richard Tarnas
*[Recommended by Patrick Casey]*


2018-12-22 17:40:49 UTC

Weimar Culture by Peter Gay is a great an easy path to understanding why and how such a huge backlash against liberal democracy took place in Germany. Peter Gay is an obvious sympathizer to Weimar culture, and often you find him asking: “How could people turn against such a rich and progressive society?” He gives histories of the Expressionst art school which totally perverted Romantic art. He also describes the (((Psychoanalytic Institute))) and many of its (((contemporaries))) who wanted a “deeper understanding of the human condition”. This book provides great examples of how the hollowness of Weimar “culture” failed to resonate with young intelligent Germans and how the moral bankruptcy of the new (((intelligentsia))) horrified so many normal Germans and enabled counter revolutionary movements to succeed.

2019-01-03 19:28:15 UTC


2019-01-03 19:31:03 UTC

This book is a nice short and concise history of the reign of Peter the Great. Sumner demonstrates how Peter Romanov converted, against most of his people’s will, Russia from a strange and archaic kingdom into a much more westernized empire.

2019-01-03 19:31:51 UTC

@Mick This isn’t the comprehensive book I was talking about but I ran across it and thought it might be a good addition to your bundle
