I'll read it because i like to read, but i was more referring to history of societies in general.
For example, I want to learn about the Mongol Empire and the types of books I found are>Yo these chinks be nasty kill 300 gorrilion and rape>Yo these chinks actually good defended russia>Yo gengis khan badass>Yo gengis is gay>Yo they fighted in this place at this hour of the day
Basically this pop history stuff that Dan Brown readers read.
No actual materialist history of them. No mention of their culture, politics, society or anthropology in relation the their economy. Actually very little mention of economy at all.
Just great men theory at best or triva and pop history at worst.
