  1. i need a world history and civilization encyclopedia or book set (this includes societies, belief systems, civilizations, politics etc right from the start all the way to contemporary society). Please recommend me a website where i can purchase it. thank you manyyyyy!
  2. After years of marches and protests and a change of government, Australia has (finally) apologised to its aboriginal citizens for the horror of the Stolen Generations. If you've seen Rabbit Proof Fence, you get the idea of what the expression means. Basically, aided by a series of laws that pretended to be for the benefit of the children concerned, over almost a century aboriginal children were systemically removed from their parents. There is no doubting that it was a deliberate act of cultural genecide. It was hoped that the 'blackness' would be bred out of them. If anyone should want to read more, the Bringing them Home report is available online. The section about the children's experiences, spelling out how total their separation was to be, is particularly heart-rending. PM Kevin Rudd might have looked embarrassingly smarmy but it's about time this was acknowledged. Of course, there are other areas of debate that continue, such as should reparations be made? And, should the British government apologise too?
  3. Anyone interested in Jack the Ripper on here? If so what books have you read? Who do you see as the most viable suspect?
  4. My friend at work is after a book on 9 11. He is interested in the timeline of events what happened that day. He is interested in conspiracy theories etc surrounding it. Can anyone recommend one?
  5. Hello, I've always had an interest in Victorian London, probably brought about by Charles Dickens. I'd like to get a highly recommended book on the History of Victorian London, society, architecture, human stories etc. I'm not looking for some new revisionist history or something light and fluffy but rather something substantial, detailed and generally accepted by Historians as being as close to 'accurate' as possible. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.
  6. Can anyone suggest a good history of WW2? I feel ashamed that I know so little about what was the major event in the world for the past 100 years or so. PLus I'm interested in history anyway. I also want to understand more about what my granddad went through and understand more why every single person who fought was a hero.
