comment How did the Soviets decide what to annex in WW2?
Almost everything, given the CPSU(b) and the Soviet Union itself kept meticulous archival records of high committee discussions, and were document producing organisations. We know, for example, that there was internal debate within the Polish party over incorporation into the Soviet Union. You'd be looking for post-archival monographs and journal articles on the topic.

comment Is the position of women as portrayed in the Mad Men series historically accurate?
Depends on the quality of the viewer's reading. It isn't a straight forward or unproblematic text.

comment Are the following 5 tenets of historical record examination considered complete today?
"No." These dicta are out of date and overly simplify the problem of reading primary sources. There's nothing about texts in context or the partiality of the documentary record. There's no bias analysis. The depiction of the social totality as a chain of finite causes is extraordinarily unusual for the contemporary era.
