Tory histories of England

Post by Millennial TM » Fri Jul 13, 2018 2:38 pm

I've been rereading some Mencius Moldbug recently, and he's talking about the American rebellion, encouraging readers to read various old history books from tories and loyalists of the time (with specific examples - Hutchinson, Oliver, Lecky).

It's given me a thirst for old historians of the Tory tradition that wrote about the history of the various English revolutions, rebellions etc from a "reactionary" perspective.

Any suggestions for good authors? Pamphleteers, legitimists, Jacobite rebels, Grub Street hacks, anti-whigs etc.

David Hume is excellent and his strong dislike of Crowell is pretty amusing
I have come to feel strongly that the greatest service I can still render to my fellow men would be that I could make the speakers and writers among them thoroughly ashamed ever again to employ the term 'social justice'.
