I’ve thought of this as well. Nice to see these thoughts in print

2018-12-25 19:06:29 UTC  

What book is this?

2018-12-25 19:07:31 UTC  

Pretty sure it's from Rules for Radicals.

2018-12-25 19:10:06 UTC  

No. Definitely not. Don't think it's Taylor (White Identity, the next book). Maybe u just haven't gotten to this part...

@Nemets What made you pick up this book in particular? I'm trying to dig into European history on the whole but it's hard to know what's worth reading and what's not.

2018-12-29 02:12:23 UTC  

if it's 600+ pages and the 1 star reviews on amazon aren't about formatting errors or freudianism it's usually at least half decent @Mick

2018-12-29 02:13:33 UTC  

@Nemets Yikes. Guess so. What do you think of the book so far?

2018-12-29 02:14:13 UTC  

How is it written? Is it tough to read, meaning, maybe a little dry?

2018-12-29 02:14:38 UTC  

I'm enjoying it, but it is pretty academic

2018-12-29 02:15:13 UTC  

Ok with academic, that can be written in a way to keep you reading imo.

2018-12-29 02:16:27 UTC  

I'm very inexperienced with Russia, does it get into what it means to be Russian wrt ethnicity?

2018-12-29 02:16:55 UTC  

I'm only 7% into it so far - but a lot of it is past the arrival of ryurik

2018-12-29 02:17:20 UTC  

I don't know if ethnic conflict was later, obviously soviet era

2018-12-29 02:17:33 UTC  

was a big deal

2018-12-29 02:17:43 UTC  

oh, ok.

2018-12-29 02:18:50 UTC  

I've always been curious about the history of the various groups that fell under Russian influence

2018-12-29 02:19:25 UTC  

how those groups formed, how they interacted with Russian influence and power, etc.

2018-12-29 02:19:37 UTC  

Ryurik?

2018-12-29 02:19:48 UTC  

Viking?

2018-12-29 02:20:28 UTC  

he was a viking of finnish background that united a lot of slavs and founded Rus'

2018-12-29 02:20:57 UTC  

his descendants would rule russia until the death of Ivan IV "The Terrible"

2018-12-29 02:21:50 UTC  

Ok. Ivan was the first Czar, so he was of Viking decent? I though Ivan was the beginning of a new era in Russian rule and culture...?

2018-12-29 02:22:11 UTC  

I've got some learning to do.

2018-12-29 02:22:28 UTC  

russians are a mixture of a lot of different peoples, just like americans

2018-12-29 02:23:04 UTC  

slavs are the main group, but they have a lot of finnic and ugrian ancestry, with a sprinkling of tatar and german
