While not specifically geared towards systems theory, my favorite history series is the Susan Wise Bauer - history of the world series. Such an awesome set of books! One of my fav authors. Planning to indoctrinate my kid with Latin per her recommendation and home school curriculum. Kid will not be home schooled, but I don't feel I can trust the public education system to properly educate my kid. And it's sarcastic! If I were single, I would try to marry that lady.
The Grand Strategy of the Byzantine Empire by Edward Luttwak. Or The Logic of War and Peace by the same author.
