comment From what part(s) of Germany were the majority of Texas immigrants in the mid-19th century?
Could one assume that more 48'ers would come from areas where the 48 revolution attempt had a broader base? None of names of the notable 48'ers sounded bavarian to me, FWIW; and Bavaria was not exactly a hotbed in 48 IIRC.

comment How common are major cities not built by abundant water?
Factoid supporting this answer: Munich and Freising sit both along the Isar, Munich thrived after some duke burned down the bridge in Freising and built one in Munich.

comment What changes happened in law enforcement and criminal trials during the Nazi era in Germany?
An important side question is how law enforcement worked in the Weimarian republic - I only know a bit about the "Ordnungszelle Bayern", but even pre-33 you had a strong right leaning slant in the police. Questions to ask would be how the eugenic (for lack of a better word) mindset affected punishment, what the expanded powers of police generally meant and how large the effects of inter-service rivalry between the older police breanches an the newer ons (the Nazis built political police divisions from the ground up) where.

comment Were boycotts, divestment, and sanctions effective against apartheid?
As an aside, you might want to look at south african workers militancy and its economic effects, could be an interesting comparison (I don't have a good summary on hand, sadly)

comment How do we know that prostitutes were very common/popular in Corinth around Jesus' time?
You might be interested in David Graebers Debt: the first 5000 years, where he ǵoes into temple protitution in the ancient world quite a bit. IIRC, temples where often economic centers and temple prostitution was sometimes a form of indentured service (I think mostly) women were pressed into when in debt.

The quote in the question is about early christianity beeing a jewish sect, this is different from wether Jesus was a jew, I think.

comment How did people categorize each other in the middle ages, how did racism work?
@Rajib I understand that you would split the question to different strata of society? Can others weigh in? My problem is that by limiting the question this way, I make assumptions (which sections of society actually exist) that may be wrong, or read differently than intended by me. Would "everyone except clergy and nobles" be answerable, or still too broad?

comment How did people categorize each other in the middle ages, how did racism work?
I see your point, but I want to know how important these areas where in relation to each other. Would "which categorizations where most important when strangers met" be better answerable?
