    Capitalist
    Capitalism
    Communist
    Communism
    Autocracy
    Oligarchy

    What does it make a difference how a historian defines it as opposed to any other person?

    Can you define what a historians definition might be? How it might be different to the normal definition or is it just what it is more likely for a historian to use or just merely using an example from history.



    Maybe then I can help you get the historians one if you are struggling.
