Take a look at the books on my "History" and "Law and Social Science" book

Among the books mentioned there, Richard Tarnas' "The Passions of the Western
Mind" (which was recommended to me by Max More) and Robert Conquest's
"Reflections on a Ravaged Century" (recommended to me by Foresight director
Jim Bennett) probably fit the bill you're looking for.
