Author of Western Imaginings: The Intellectual Contest to Define Wahhabism

As the beating drums within the United States for a war with Iran grow louder, it is important, now more than ever, to understand precisely how and why neo-conservatives have chosen to orchestrate a sustained and coordinated campaign for a U.S. attack on Iran, or short of that, support an Israeli strike against the Islamic Republic's nuclear technology facilities. This campaign is aimed at convincing U.S.

Bílý, Matěj, Ph.D., Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes, Prague, Czech Republic

In The Warsaw Pact, 1969-1985, young Czech scholar Matěj Bílý analyzes the internal tensions of the Soviet-led Cold War alliance as its careened toward its end.

Command Responsibility: Holding Military Leaders Accountable for their Troops (W. B. Sheridan Law Books)

Author: 

Whisker, James B., Professor Emeritus of Political Science, West Virginia University; Kevin R. Spiker, Associate Professor of Political Science, Ohio University

Command responsibility, or executive accountability, assumes that leaders are responsible for the actions of their subordinates. If subordinates misbehave, violate basic moral laws, transgress international law, or thwart international standards of behavior, their leader may be called before to justice. Standards that set the boundaries of human action have been evolving for many millennia, with some degree of precision arriving after the post-World War II international war crimes prosecutions.

Law in Cameroon: A French Tradition (W. B. Sheridan Law Books)

Author: 

Bongyu, Moye Godwin Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Senior Lecturer of Public Law and Political Science, Dschang University, Cameroon

Colonialism led to the importation, or better still imposition, of European administrative systems on the indigenous people of Africa. France specialized in this, practicing direct rule and an assimilation policy in their colonies up to the time of independence. In Cameroon, French administrative law (“droit adminstratif”) became part of the national legal system.

Nazi Ideologist: The Political and Social Thought of Alfred Rosenberg

Author: 

Whisker, James B., Professor Emeritus of Political Science, West Virginia University; John R. Coe, Parkersburg WV schools, retired

This book by dynamic scholars James Whisker and John Coe examines the short life of the Nazi ideologist Alfred Rosenberg, one of the most overlooked individuals in the pantheon of leaders in the Third Reich. Born to German mercantile parents in the Baltic region of the Russian Empire, he was a student in Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution. Deeply influenced by the anti-Semitic forgery The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a propaganda pamphlet distributed by the tsar’s secret police, he carried it to Germany, where he introduced it to Adolf Hitler.

The Hounds of Actaeon: The Magical Origins of Public Relations and Modern Media

Author: 

Loza, Mauricio; Independent Researcher and Technology Writer

In this innovative study, Colombian technology writer Mauricio Loza pursues an intriguing thesis on the origin of psychology and modern media, namely that they arise from the magical arts of the Renaissance, and it is there that we must seek what Ioan Culianu called “the prototype of the impersonal systems of the media, of indirect censorship, of global manipulation and of the trusts that exercise their occult control over the Western masses.”
