Request: history book suggestions

I had a request for more information; inspired, I believe, by this older post: History? Their-story.

What are your favorite books on history- especially pertaining to stateless societies?

What about reading suggestions (particularly in book form) about other more liberty-leaning societies- either past or present?

The world is full of books pushing the statist agenda- including all the books (history and otherwise) used in schools. We know how indispensable government employees believe their club to be. Let's get the other side for a change.

If anyone has suggestions, post them in the comments- it would be a good resource for the future.

Thank you!



  1. I very much enjoyed David Hackett Fischer's
    Paul Revere's Ride. An accurate portrayal of the events surrounding Lexington and Concord. It's reads like an action film.

  2. The Falsification of History:Our Distorted Reality by John Hamer. At several points throughout this book the author requests that we not take his writings at face value but engage in our own research. If he is willing to have his writings fact checked then I consider that it lends credence and credibility to his work. To obtain full value from this book it is necessary to cast aside anything you have learnt from your parents, your schooling, the mainstream media, and in particular, your government, and approach this publication with an open mind. It is truly a revelation as to just how the world really operates.

  3. One I recommend is The Law of the Somalis by Michael van Notten.
    Maybe not exactly history, but it explains their old system which was destroyed by those trying to impose states on them, and explains why Somalia is NOT the Libertopia today that statists want to present it as.
