History Bookshelf!

These are the books that have been monumental for me during my history career so far. During my mandatory American History seminars I focused primarily on American Indians, while my primary focus is on the Modern Middle East. These books define me, in a way, and I’ve already been through them enough to wrinkle some spines.

1491 - Charles Mann

The Comanche Empire - Pekka Hämäläinen

Indians in Unexpected Places - Philip Deloria
