Among her books are The Utopian Conceit and the War on Freedom, The Art of Peace: Engaging a Complex World, Soulmates: Resurrecting Eve, Why America is Such a Hard Sell, and Notes from the Other Side of Night.

In the 1990s she was Vice President for Programs at the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), where she designed, conducted, and managed projects related to a wide variety of democratization projects.

“A fascinating tour d’horizon of how Jewish intellectuals and activists helped to define and then make a mess of American liberalism, many of them turning into radicals that undermine American democracy. Juliana Pilon has the intellectual depth to explain what happened and why, starting from the founding of the American colonies and from there to the present time. One hopes her work will reeducate all.”

The Privacy Pirates

Author: 

Gruis, Leslie N.

Credentials: 

Leslie Gruis served at the National Security Agency for 30 years. Originally recruited as a mathematician with a Ph.D. from Northwestern University, Dr. Gruis was talent-spotted for her people and policy-setting skills and rapidly became a rising star. She ascended through the ranks, became the head of an organization that funded start-ups for classified applications, and then entered the high-level policy arena just as the intelligence community began to face unprecedented privacy challenges. These included the role of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court in targeting Americans and major changes to the intelligence community forced by the privacy revelations of whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Dr. Gruis’s long-standing interests in the rights of Americans and the American dream coalesced in a deep interest in privacy as a concept. She influenced intelligence community policy on privacy for the rights of Americans and wrote a number of classified policy documents on that subject. Upon retirement, Dr. Gruis began a second career writing about the privacy rights of the American public. She focused on what Americans are entitled to know and what can be done to protect them from exploitation by giant commercial organizations. Dr. Gruis is the author of Privacy: Past, Present, and Future. She also writes for traditional and online media, appears on radio and television, and gives frequent public appearances. Dr. Gruis lives in Maryland with her family.

In The Privacy Pirates, former National Security Agency intelligence officer Dr. Leslie Gruis explains the origins of American privacy and its deep connection to freedom and the American dream. She discusses some of the controversial issues, covering everything from attempts to protect privacy rights—many unsuccessful—to abuses of privacy by large companies and accusations of privacy invasion by the government.

Democracy and Human Rights in Nigeria’s Fourth Republic

Author: 

Ehwarieme, William & Nathaniel Umukoro, Editors

Credentials: 

Editors: Dr. William Ehwarieme is Professor of Political Science and Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at Ajayi Crowther University, in Nigeria. He obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in political science from the University of Nigeria, Nsuka, in 1982 and 1988. He received his Ph.D. in political science from the University of Ibadan in 2000. His research interests are in civil-military relations, ethnic politics, Niger Delta studies, governance, and comparative politics.

Dr. Nathaniel Umukoro is Professor of International Affairs, Peace Studies, and Conflict Transformation in the Department of Political Science at Western Delta University, Nigeria, where he is also Director of the Institute of Delta and Development Studies. He was a 2022 Humboldt fellow at the University of Bayreuth, Germany, and is currently a Senior Research Fellow at Point Alpha Research Institute, also in Germany. He completed his Ph.D. in peace and conflict studies at the University of Ibadan as a fellow of the Next Generation Social Sciences in the Africa Unit of the Social Science Research Council, New York.

One of the challenges Nigeria has faced since independence in 1960 has been its human rights record. Under military rule, the problem was attributed to the undemocratic nature of military regimes. When the military handed over power to civilians after an election in 1999, it was expected that democratic governance would lead to improved respect for human rights. But human rights violations persisted.

Author: 

Meurer, Thomas E.

Credentials: 

Thomas E. Meurer is a retired business executive whose good fortune has allowed for careers and experiences in nearly all of his areas of interest: competitive sports, the military, teaching, politics, diplomacy, agriculture, venture capital, natural history, science, oil, gas, and dozens of practical jokes. Over the last 55 years, He has done business in 47 countries, several of which no longer exist.

The Wild, Wild East recounts the adventures of late-onset Texan and international businessman Tom Meurer over a span of 55 years, from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism. As a freshly commissioned Air Force lieutenant, Tom experienced a build-up to war. But it was only after billionaire H.

Haug, N. A.

Credentials: 

Nils A. Haug is a trial lawyer by profession and member of the International Bar Association, the National Association of Scholars, and a faculty member of Intercollegiate Studies Institute.

This is the first major work to present a political, legal, theological, philosophical, and missiological view - validated by ancient Jewish Rabbinical hermeneutical strategies - of the current maelstrom affecting Western society. The author employs a conservative Judeo-Christian and political standpoint in evaluating the challenge to accepted values, morals, and precepts underpinning Western civilization.

The baby boomers tracked the beginning of this great historical arc, their children are watching it accelerate, and their grandchildren may witness its completion. The rise of the Third World is rooted in social transfers, welfare, and redistribution of wealth in the name of justice. The failing heart of the West is the market.

Civilization, Beyond Our Fall

Author: 

Itzkoff, Seymour W.

Credentials: 

Seymour W. Itzkoff is Professor Emeritus of Education at Smith College. His professional career began as a cellist in the Hartford Symphony while studying at the University of Hartford. The Korean War found him playing as a cellist in the U.S. Army Piano Trio in Washington D.C for President Harry S Truman at the White House and for General George Marshall at the Pentagon. Itzkoff’s developing interest in philosophy led him to enroll in doctoral studies at Columbia University. During this period, he taught at several public schools in New York and at Hunter and Lehman Colleges of the City University of New York (CUNY). He then joined the faculty of Smith College, where he taught for 35 years. His publications include 32 books in various academic fields with a major interest in human evolution and intelligence.

Civilization, Beyond Our Fall explores the realities behind the rise and fall of historic civilizational ideals, especially on the fate of the Western vision. The book begins with the rise, durability, and fall of the historic civilizational profiles of humankind. It continues with the decline of the West, which from our perspective began with World War I and has continued at a faster pace in the 21st century. Itzkoff’s prognosis for the next century or two is one of a dismal world of chaos, war, and deep pessimism throughout the world.
