I'm going to put this in motion, but since the response to the sticky was so low, I'm going to set a glacial pace. At least for now.

I struggled with whether to pick something fiction or nonfiction, so I'm selecting two books for the rest of the year:


Permutation City by Greg Egan

and

The Spell of the Sensuous by David Abram



You may also use this thread to suggest a book, but I'm more likely to pick the suggestion that comes at the end of the best post about one of these books.

Oh man, Permutation City is one of those conceptual books that you just have to digest, but it's good. The best word to describe it is philosophysical relativity, the ultimate examination of the statement that there is no privileged point of observation, and once it hits the second half of the book you'd best be ready for some serious shit.

Thank goodness for the "look inside" feature. I don't think it is very good. Stop using so many commas coz that's not how they are supposed to work.

Note: I apologize if the "attention grabbing" picture in this post offends anybody, I will explain why I used this picture at the bottom of this post.

This is a thread for books and (youtube) videos on the history of the 20th century, focusing especially on the period of chaos and world-wide warfare that started with the Russo-Japanese war in 1904 and ended with the fall of Communism and the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact in 1991.

I would like the focus of this thread to be on what professional historians call "Primary Source Documents", which means the books were written by people who were actually there and were actually involved in what was happening at the time. So good examples of the kind of books I'm looking for are:

(1) A book on World War 1 or World War 2, written by an actual general or soldier who fought in WW1 or WW2 (ideally explaining things such as the cause of the war, why they were fighting, etc).

(2) A book on a political doctrine written by the founder of the doctrine (i.e. a book on Stalinism written by Stalin, a book on Fascism written by Mussolini, a book on National Socialism written by an actual German Nazi, etc. etc.).

(3) If the book isn't a primary source document itself, then its ok as long as the book has lots of scholarly footnotes and citations that can lead you to other primary source documents.

The book in the picture in this post is a book on economics that was written in 1919 by German economist Gottfried Feder, see:

>>17352

Ok, attached to this post is an actual pdf of the book by Gottfried Feder that was alluded to in my first post (like I said before, I think reading this book is key to understanding the causes of World War 2).

This pdf book used to be hosted on archive.org but I think Hasbara attempted to take this book offline to censor it, and I am against the censorship of books (regardless whether the author was George Orwell, Gottfried Feder, or anybody else).

So I have attached a pdf of the Gottfried Feder book on "Breaking Debt Interest Slavery" to this post. More primary source documents on 20th century history (maybe some books on Marxism or Communism or American style liberal democracy and capitalism) will probably be uploaded in this thread later.

I must have misunderstood your request. In any case, if you have no other criteria beyond 'best' books, the western canon is a reasonable place to start.

I hope that you undrstand that using this language to comunicate with you is quite hard actually, a bit primitive. I am sure ther has to be a list of a few books above the average in every language. (tu vais, petit chinge, je suis capable d'utiliser les adjectifs)

Is around 5000 words a good number for a Master-level final subject report, considering said report if what you are graded on?

I am just worried about what I submitted/am about to submit.

That question never comes to mind when I write. Because at length, I can write however much you want about anything.

I've FINALLY written my 3-part fantasy journey, /lit/.. I'm already looking for a publisher of adult adventure novels!

But before I get to the business part, I'd like to hear what you think on the series premise.. If /lit/ is interested in reading, I'll be more than happy to post the first 2 chapters as a preview.

It's a book series I started in high school titled 'Metalmorphicum'

Basically, the setting is a steampunk Earth where every human is born with the ability to bend/manipulate (like Aang) 1 substance that exists on the planet. The substance that you can control is determined by the last thing your laboring mother touched before your umbilical cord was cut...

So if she touched blood, then you can manipulate any form of blood outside or inside someone's body. You could easilly kill one with blood-bending.

If she touched skin, you could (for example) rip the skin off your enemy's body strip by strip.

If she touched bone? Yikes, then I wouldn't wanna mess with you.

I almost gave up writing since there were so many characters and so many 'bendable' substances to remember. These included :
