Oculine 17, 31.


What is going on here?

What period of history do you wish you understood better?

All of them, but if I had to choose one, I would say say I'm most curious about the precolonial period of American history... given most historical accounts, it's tempting to think that Native American nations had relatively static relationships until the arrival of Europeans, but this is mainly a product of bias and a lack of solid information. I'd love to read a history of Michigan or Illinois, for example, that discussed the history of the Potawatomi and the Ojibwa in the same kind of detail that my "History of Western Civilization" treats the dynamic between France and England.

"All of them" applies for me too ... lately it's been the early colonial period in Africa, but that's pretty general. I'm also interested in the immediate period preceding African independence, specifically between the middle of World War II and 1957. And World War II in South America. And ancient India. And ... I think I just will stop now.

Yes, lots of times for me, too.

1st-century BC in the middle east.

19th and 20th-century China.

Pre-colonial Australia.
