Are you asking for good readings on British Politics? If so look at "Good Morning Prime Minister" :)

@T.E.D. Dont worry, I up-voted your answer, just trying to be slightly less biased. Your answer was very good.

some people would disagree with "this portion of the Bible shouldn't be take literally. (though I do agree) You might want to change it to say for historical proposes...

comment What factors led to the rise of political parties in the United States?
Game theory. The best way to get someone you like as president is to have a huge group of like-minded people pool resources to get a person elected.

comment Did the Chinese Develop Steam Engines Prior to the 17th Century?
@BrotherJack, Sorry I wasn't able to add the updates, but my internet was down. I'm looking at the coal-mines because, from my research in European coal-mines, they used steam power to pump air into the mines. I'm looking in the Tiangong Kaiwu to see if the Chinese used steam in the mines. Now that my internet is back, I'll be able to do more research. (And unfortunately translate mining part of the text)

comment Explosive Ordinance Yield Over History
I can't really agree with this. You don't need many men on the ground to launch a ballistic missile or machine gun down protesters. As for the social aspects, we can look at Bahrain. It's police force, are not from Bahrain, but Jordan and other outlying states. (You could also argue this is irrelevant as its Saudi Arabia and the US that are supporting them. :D )

Wow, I never though of this before. But I'm not entirely sure that this is true; Guerrilla warfare originates from the napoleonic period, and was ultimately successful. Of corse, this could just be an outlier.

comment How dangerous duels were?
Tycho Brahe lost his nose in a duel so I'd guess it came with some dangers...

homepages.paradise.net.nz/rochelle.f/… This looks credible and doesn't say anything on China creating the steam engine. The history channel used to be good. Now all they have is a show on pawn shops :(
