    It saddens me to see how the field of alternative history is revolving around Fomenko and his weird Russian nationalism with Tartaria, mathematics etc. Not to mention that his writing style isn't even enjoyable in either language.

    It wasn't always like that. Fomenko's early publications grew from former studies of Morozov and Postnikov that didn't really mention Russia or any advanced math and also were enjoyable reads overall. Unfortunately these are dead stuck in Russian without any hope for official translation in the future. And citations in Fomenko's books are bits and pieces.

    I took some effort to translate Chapter 1 (out of 18) from the 70s study by Postnikov which is a more dynamic repackaging of Morozov's original books published in 1907-1932. I wonder if I can spark somebody's interest on the matter.
