Japan's history has always interested me, in fact feudal Japan or Sengoku Japan is what got me into history in the first place. I know it's over played and anime and weaboos have kinda ruined Japan's reputation. But, aside from all that, japan in the Sengoku era was extremely bloody and treacherous. Wars were constantly being fought, enemy armies just a few miles away from you being on such a small island. It was quite war torn. It was much like medieval Europe, just more violent compared to how small the country is and how many battles and wars were fought in such a short time. Their culture and warrior class was extremely sophisticated and unique. It might not be the most powerful or most influential in the world, but the civilizations before the western ideology conquered wer extremely unique and quute different than the rest of the world. You could say that before the west spread Iit's influence, Japan was a pretty mysterious place. It's quite fun to study if you ask me.

Should really place the european comparison a good 200years back though. The 1400s were the end of that age of europe and the hailing of the renaissance. Japan (and east asia in general) fell a bit behind in this period, due to political incompetence.

soviet psychiatry basically only had that going for it. dissidents were very frequently diagnosed with 'sluggish schizophrenia': poor social adaptation, pessimism, problems with authority. in cases where dissidence could not be blamed on relics of the past or imperialistic meddling, a class conscious worker in a socialist state expressing dissatisfaction could only be mentally ill.

russians still do that, by the way. some activist got locked in an institution and given daily shots of haloperidol for six weeks for protesting some thing or another putin did. happens with some frequency as a matter of fact.

So I don't know what I'm talking about, and maybe this is totally the wrong question to ask.

But are there any parts of history or nations/civilizations that are underrepresented in contemporary academia?

Rome and Medieval Europe seem to have the most research done into them, are there any areas of history that you would like to learn more about but there simply aren't the resources?

Genetic tests show Ashkenazai Jews are descendent from Khazars.

>More from his Haaretz interview, “The various groups of Jews in the world today do not share a common genetic origin. We are talking here about groups that are very heterogeneous and which are connected solely by religion…[the] genome of European Jews is a mosaic of ancient peoples and its origin is largely Khazar.”

>Now onto some of the science highlights. Dr. Elhaik’s research shows that the dominant element in the genetic makeup of European Jews is Khazar. For Central European Jews it is 38%, while for East Europeans it is 30

>On December 14, 2012, Dr. Eran Elhaik turned almost two generations of Jewish genome research upside down.

>But he went even further. The young Israeli-American geneticist has charged former researchers with academic fraud, and he has the research to back it up.

So basically looking at Japan and South Korea, they are doing pretty well. They are extremely westernized, have post-industrial economies and successful business that deal all over the world - their electronics are respected everywhere. They have extremely high standards of living comparable and education to the most developed parts of the West.

The rest of Asia doesn't, though. Even China which is usually grouped with these 2 in terms of "Oriental" or having high culture worthy of respect... it's a shithole full of slaves who make cheap replaceable plastic crap and live in toxic slums. India, SEA and the Stans of course are totally fucked, full of desperate poverty and constant war. Even eastern Russia which is more or less "European" seems like an awful place to live.

So what the fuck? How and why did Japan and Korea survive to become "honorary westerners" and thrive while the entire rest of the continent sank into shit?

A powder monkey manned naval artillery guns as a member of a warship's crew, primarily during the Age of Sail. His chief role was to ferry gunpowder from the powder magazine in the ship's hold to the artillery pieces. The function was fulfilled by boy seamen 12 to 14 years of age.

This is as much as our wikipedia-education tells us of history.

So in WWI after Russia started going Commie the rest of the allied nations sent forces to help out the Tsar, which makes sense Tsarist Russia was an allied nation.

But what if instead of Russia the socialist revolution had started in Germany as I've heard some say there was a legit possibility of happening? Do you think the allies would still have backed the Imperial faction or since they were an enemy would the allies have tried to help the socialists take down the Kaiser? Or would they have just sat it out and let the Germans fight themselves?

Forgive me /his/torians, I'm a little drunk.

Forgive me again, because I'm going to open Pandora's Box of AltHis.

The war in Europe is drawing to a close, the American atom bomb is nearing completion, or it's already finished and we're waiting until August to drop them on Japan. Everybody is poised to make a deal with the devil and cut Europe up into Allied/Soviet spheres of influence, except Patton, who wants to rearm the Germans and drive the Russians back to Moscow. He's ignored, the Iron Curtain is drawn, and the Cold War begins. But what if he wasn't and the Allies charge into Slavic lands?

Next scenario: September, 1950. UN troops push the North Koreans all the way up to the No-No line at the Chinese border near Dandong on the Yalu River. Mao says, "YOU FUKN DONE IT NOW!" and a million Chinese pour over the border and start knocking Yankees and Commonwealth troops back south. Hero of the Pacific Theater in WWII and Commander of US Forces in the Far East Douglas McArthur clenches his corncob pipe in his teeth and begs Truman to drop atomic bombs on Chinese cities to get the Chinks out of his war with the Shovelheads. Truman snaps that he's trying to avoid another World War (remember, the Soviets had had nuclear capabilities for over a year now), not start one. But what if he'd agreed with McArthur and Beijing had gone up in an atomic firestorm?

>On December 2nd, acting under the authority Truman had delegated, MacArthur ordered the United States Air Force to drop five Hiroshima-sized atomic bombs on Chinese columns advancing from the Korean peninsula. Although not as effective as they had been against Japanese cities at the end of World War II, the resulting blasts and firestorms did stop the offensive. Some 150,000 Chinese troops were killed in the attacks, along with an unknown number of American and South-Korean prisoners of war. NATO allies were quick to condemn MacArthur's action, which he had taken without consulting them, and only an American veto prevented the United Nations Security Council from immediately reversing that body's decision, made six months earlier, to authorize military action in defense of South Korea. The Soviet Union, under immense pressure from its Chinese ally to retaliate with its own atomic weapons, gave the United States a fortyeight-hour ultimatum to halt all military operations on the Korean peninsula or face "the most severe of consequences".

>When, on December 4th, that deadline passed, two Soviet bombers took off from Vladivostok, each equipped with a primitive but fully operational atomic bomb. Their targets were the South Korean cities of Pusan and Inchon, both of them critical ports supplying United Nations forces. Little was left after the bombs fell. Faced with twice the number of casualties inflicted in the attacks he had ordered against the Chinese together with an almost complete severing of his logistical chain, MacArthur ordered bombers based in Japan to drop atomic bombs on Vladivostok, as well as the Chinese cities of Shenyang and Harbin. The news of these strikes caused anti-American riots to break out all over Japan - itself withing range of Soviet bombers - just as Great Britain, France, and the Benelux countries were announcing their formal withdrawal from the NATO alliance. Not, however, before mushroom clouds were reported over the West German cities of Frankfurt and Hamburg - and so, to paraphrase Kurt Vonnegut, it might have gone.

I'm high enough to properly ramble a decent answer to scenario two-
If Truman doesn't talk down MacArthur then the world gets introduced to tactical nuclear strike theory twenty to thirty years earlier, when it comes to practical application and not solely theoretically, and this allows also for the complete understanding of the detriment to the world nuclear explosions and also noncontainable fallout from nuclear disaster earlier than Three Mile, Chernobyl, etc.
There is also a coining of the intended phrase 'military-industrial-congressional complex' in which political lobbying comes into the public thirty or so years earlier as well, which allows for ethics and policy shifts to occur more rapidly and under the same scrutiny as the McCarthy red and black balling trials and may have even supplanted those in the public's eye. This could lead to a different level and caliber of politicians, which may have saved us from Nixon and to an extent LBJ's in fucking sanity that we got dragged through, as well as a portion of the Bush Dynasty and the Clinton family. It could have pushed the world to be a better, albeit colder and more clinical, world in which civil and social issues are given as much attention as military and defense issues as well as shedding a different ideology to attack/defend against theocratic zealotry. Then again, that level of speculation is limitless, that far into the innumerable differences that that kind of timeline effect could cause.
Examples- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bqr5DVx3dw Eisenhower's Farewell Speech, coining of the phrase 'military-industrial complex'
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_warfare#1980s Section of (I know, it's not a credible source for proper academia) Wikipedia's nuclear war entry on 1980s strategic and tactical, localized nuclear strike capabilities of Cold War nations in the 1980s.

Not relevant to OP, but you should be aware that three-mile never went critical and leaked negligible radiation. It did scare everyone shitless, but it actually wasn't an environmental disaster.

This always struck me as kind of odd. How did Islam spread to South East Asia. When you look at it on a map it doesn't really seem to make much sense. I have absolutely no idea what I am talking about here but surely Hinduism was in a much better position to spread from India rather than Islam?

the difference between muslims and normal typical immigrants is that they go to an Islamic school and pray 5 times a day, so they are very versed in the islamic culture regardless of where they live.

You only need to go back tot he crusades to see the attrocities muslims put other religious people living in the same society as them, they rode horses from europe to israel because muslims where castrating christians and jews.

So although normal immigrants will immerse themselves in their local culture and abide by normal government most muslims dont, they operate under sharia, they usually have no contact with local government and dont participate in local culture or education, they go to islamic school and depend on other muslims for welfare.
Although they live on the same land they dont recognise your government as being their government.

Muslims are very dangerous because they are like a swarm just spreading over the world right now all thanks to Bin Laden stirring up another war creating hundreds of thousands of refugees.

of course this is being very general, i do know some people who say they are muslim but partake in the eating of non halal food and have sex with the same sex, but they are very much a minority.
In Australia whole communities have been converted from working class/poor people to Moderatly wealthy muslims, all the stores are muslim, all the butchers are halal, they have a loud speaker to announce prayer and they have huge mosques all over the place.

The only reason people don't like them is because of their desire to not fully integrate with local populations and retain their own customs. It's one of the reasons they have flourished in the USA, because we were founded (partly) by people who came here to practice their own customs unmolested. Obviously that's not always been true, but that's the predominating culture anyway.

So /his/tory I'm in a bit of a bad position here.

I love history and I always was among the top of my classes, however I do not know historical dates at all.

I can tell you about the cold war but can't say the year vietnam started and ended - same with Korea.
I can tell you that WW2 ended in May of 1945 but only because I can "reconstruct" the date based on my knowledge like:
> WW2 ended in 1945 > WW2 ended with the Soviets taking Berlin > the Soviets took Berlin in May because they wanted it in time for May-Day

So how do I tackle that issue? Is there a list of dates worth learning raging from Ancient to modern times (can be Euro-centric af I don't mind)?

I mean, if you're reading about an historical phenomenon, say the Protestant Reformation. You'll start seeing dates ranging from the early 1500s up until the 1650s. And if you know it begins with Martin Luther posting his 99 Theses and ends with the Peace of Westphalia after the Thirty Years War. Also, learn some key events like the formation of the Church of England in the mid 1500s, the French Wars of Religion in the mid-late 1500s and the Thirty Years War in the early-mid 1600s.

But yeah, study history in themes rather than just going chronologically. Date by date isn't going to help you get any better at History.

How about you tell us what particular periods or epochs or eras of history you're interested in and I'm sure someone will hook you up with the requisite chronological timelines. As of right now, your question is much too broad. You mention WW2 in your OP, while quite unoriginal of you, it is a very studied topic with many resources and timelines at your disposal all over the internet.

I might direct you to begin your study on WW2 not in 1939, not even in 1914, but rather alllllll the way back to 1871 and the Franco-Prussian War. And then move yourself forward so you can get all the nuance of the beautiful game of balance of power politics in Europe and the subsequent Age of Imperialism. All of this feeding directly into WW1 which feeds directly into WW2.

WW2 is a large topic as it is...I'd rather advice OP to study it by themes, like you said

like, read up Hitler's biography if that interests you...or read up about life in soviet Russia, or Annie Frank's diaries, or Japanese expansion into China, or the development of atomic bomb...

If your desire is to not appear foolish, then don't actually study shit up with the idea of looking smart in class. Everyone will just think you're annoying since they didn't even bother and either already know it or are actually engaging in the process of learning not memorization.

Some people on 420chan are so stupid, they should just be taken out back and be shot.

Cedric Clonderstag is one of these people.

How does the Rome of the Americans not discover the worth of the wheel at some point, especially? How does any civilization not see this?

Bombasy, did anyone ever tell you you're insufferable idiot and need to fuck off?

>It's taught me not to use sweeping generalisations as a whole in life.

That itself is a generalization. But..

>not to use sweeping generalisations
>Many people have never thought
>our Euro-centric
>The Chinese use

My point is that if you can get a cow up a terrace, you can get a wheelbarrow up a terrace.
Also, if you're pulling the plow yourself, you probably want a wheelplow.

How is the Chinese terrace farm any more or less natural than the farms that don't necessitate destroying a mountain to build?

The problem is China does that to virtually every observation. The China card is trump. It can be assumed that if there is a pre-modern method, the best example of that method originates in China.

If ya'll let a jolly african-american elaborate, the competition was between dese here Europeans and the Natives, lest a far flung comparison be unfair to both.
