I am interested in all kinds of history: old-fashioned political and military, social, economic, and last but not least at all - the history of ideas.

comment How important were “columnar” strategies in Japan's invasion of China?
Lots of other things were different too for the Japanese between 1938 and 1944... So I don't think you can just focus on the columnar variable, and assume everything else is fixed.

@MarkC.Wallace What the old answer and what was the new one?

@TylerDurden That's my opinion too, but I'd like to see some disproof.

But perhaps you might want to contact Bjorn Paarman (the link given by theodox in the comment to his answer mentions him) - he sounds like the go-to person for this.

If there is a pointer to another publication that has the information in more accessible form, I can look it up the library for you.

comment Athenian tribute lists
I am sorry to report that I failed in my self-appointed task. I did find Meritt's book but it seems to be organized in a way that is too difficult for a layman such as me to navigate. There are hundreds of pages with tribute lists but they are organized alphabetically (in Greek, no English translations are given, it seems) and not chronologically. I also did not find a chronological index. So to compile from the tables there a list such as you require would take far far more time than I can spare, alas.

I'll try to look up Meritt's books tomorrow. Any particular city you are interested in?

I took the liberty of adding a tag. Hope you don't mind.
