On the Warpath: My Battles With Indians, Pretendians, and Woke Warriors

Author: 

Weiss, Elizabeth

Credentials: 

Elizabeth Weiss is a controversial and world-renowned anthropology professor, specializing in the analysis of human skeletal remains. For much of her career she was based at San Jose State University, where she curated one of the largest collections of skeletal remains in the US. She is the author of numerous books and articles, and she played an essential role in bringing the Smithsonian’s traveling exhibition "What Does it Mean to be Human?" to the San Francisco Bay Area. She's been featured in the New York Times, Science and USA Today, and has been interviewed on Fox News and Newsmax. She currently lives in New York City, where she holds a visiting fellowship with Heterodox Academy.

On The Warpath is an autobiographical account of controversial anthropologist Elizabeth Weiss's storied career on the front lines of the culture war in our colleges and universities. Her opposition to the reburial of Native American skeletal remains, her insistence that indigenous knowledge is not science but myth, and her fight against wokeism and political correctness in academia exposed her to numerous controversies and cancel culture campaigns, and a court case.

From Metaphysics to Decision Making

Author: 

Mitjashin, Alexander

Credentials: 

Alexander Mitjashin graduated and received his Ph.D. in Philosophy from St. Petersburg State University. After teaching philosophy, he is now retired. His books include The World and Language: The Ontology for Natural Language, Knowledge and Capitalism, Liberalism and Skepticism, Physics and Metaphysics, and The Epistemology of Experience.

In From Metaphysics to Decision Making, Alexander Mitjashin argues that the laws of logic should be regarded as a paraphrase of an ontology – an understanding of “being” – whose components are distinct one from another, no matter how similar we may consider them. This approach allows us to remove antinomies without using any axiomatic method. The bases of that ontology are much easier to understand than the ones of symbolic logic and may enable us to introduce optimal societal decision making in the realm of public policy.

Afrikaner Identity: From Anticolonial Struggle Through Hegemonic Nationalism to Disempowered Minority

Author: 

Louw, P. Eric

Credentials: 

Eric Louw’s career spanned universities in both South Africa and Australia. Prior to that, he was a journalist at the Pretoria News and also ran an NGO engaged in development work in South Africa. Louw has been a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Cape Town and at the University of South Africa and has served on the editorial boards of four academic journals. His publications in the fields of political communication and South African politics include 12 books, over 60 journal articles and over 40 book chapters. Dr. Louw’s books include Decolonization and White Africans: The ‘Winds of Change,’ Resistance, and Beyond (Academica Press) as well as Roots of the Pax Americana, The Rise, Fall and Legacy of Apartheid, and New Voices Over the Air: The Transformation of the South African Broadcasting Corporation in a Changing South Africa.

Afrikaners have long been portrayed as the villains of South Africa’s apartheid state. Because they were such intensely vilified pariahs, many Americans and Europeans remain intrigued by Afrikaners as a vestige of white nationalism living in Africa who nevertheless peacefully transferred political power to South Africa’s black majority.

The Law of Interrogations and Confessions traces the evolution of the primary approaches that U.S. courts have taken to regulating the interrogation of suspects by law enforcement officers. It examines the due process approach to the voluntariness of statements; the short-lived “focus of the investigation” test of Escobedo v. Illinois; the landmark Fifth Amendment approach announced in Miranda v. Arizona; and the Sixth Amendment’s right to counsel approach to regulating the “deliberate elicitation” of incriminating statements. Henry F.

American Spirit or Great Awokening?: The Battle to Restore or Destroy Our Nation

Author: 

Abramson, Bruce D.

Credentials: 

Bruce D. Abramson is Executive Director of New Student and Graduate Admissions at New College of Florida. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Columbia University, a J.D. from Georgetown University, and has served on the faculty of the University of Southern California and as a research adjunct at Carnegie Mellon University.

America is suffering from a deep spiritual crisis. The national polarization that so many miscast as political is really a conflict between two spiritual solutions pointing in drastically different directions. One is Wokeism, a new religion that speaks most clearly to America’s spiritually starved young, urban, credentialed, professional elites.

Sleepwalking Into Wokeness: How We Got Here

Mr. O’Sullivan served as a Special Adviser and speechwriter to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

America and the West are now in the penultimate stage of a revolution defined by “wokeness.” What we call “partisanship” is essentially the effect of the late but growing realization of the revolution’s opponents that they face a major threat to their interests, convictions, and ways of life. It is not the “wokerati,” but their likely victims who are waking up.

Nuclear Agendas in Japan and Taiwan: A Comparative Approach to Science, Technology, and Society

Author: 

Amato, Silvia, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Silvia Amato, Ph.D., is an international author. Her research, currently based on independent study projects, includes doctoral dissertation research centered on international Asia-Pacific Interdisciplinary Studies, and she received her M.A in International Relations in Taiwan. Her main thematic interests focus on comparative development, regionalism, and environmental dynamics intertwined with local planning designs.

Nuclear Agendas in Japan and Taiwan compares practical management cases regarding nuclear energy in regional neighbouring partners: Japan and Taiwan. An introductory overview of Japan’s nuclear policy leads to the specification of important factors tangible in everyday life. What we perceive as knowledge transfer innovation and renewed industrial assessments shift to a regional territory that develops its own rules and practices within the dimension of nuclear energy innovation technology and post-crisis regulatory agendas.
