John Green's latest Crash Course: World History is all about those societies which existed outside of traditional civilization and rethinking how we see them. I thought it might be an interesting thing to watch for anyone curious. I personally find the crash course series entertaining and informative, so I suspect others here might as well.


Also, a quick pdf on the idea of a Swidden: Here

I love both of the Green brothers.

We use crash course as part of our homeschooling--it is like the modern equivalent of schoolhouse rock.

that was quite good =)

i have a few different ideas about a few of the things he says, but overall it was very thought provoking and entertaining to boot.
even if i dont see things exactly like he does in all of his points, the majority of what he says is very important and i appreciate his putting it out there for critical thinkers
