What is/was/will be your college major? posted 20 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

In lieu of me having to search for hours for everything, let me start by recommending two very different books for you to read:

E.P. Thompson, The Making of the English Working Class

Modris Eksteins, Rites of Spring

One is THE seminal social history text, the other a fascinating cultural analysis of World War I.

And speaking of WWI, read this book by one of my professors:

Vejas Liulevicius, War Land on the Eastern Front : Culture, National Identity, and German Occupation in World War I (Studies in the Social and Cultural History of Modern Warfare)

This book has so many of the topics discussed in a seminar class I was in that I could almost recite the results even before he discussed them in the book. Great read. view post
