Author: 

Andrews, Robert M.

Constructing the Soviet Elite: Recruitments, Exclusions, and Repressions Within the Soviet Communist Party, 1917-1941

Author: 

Moullec, Gaël-Georges

Credentials: 

Gaël-Georges Moullec is a specialist in Russian History and the history of the international communist movement. Having served as a staff officer at NATO Headquarters, he is currently lecturer at the University of Paris XIII and the Polytechnic University of Valenciennes, and Associate Researcher and Chair of Geopolitics at Rennes School of Business. He is the author of eight books including Moscou – 1917: Les rapports d’Albert Remes, consul du Royaume de Belgique and Trois instants de printemps, le renseignement diplomatique soviétique dans la France gaulliste.

The Soviet Communist Party faced a large-scale problem of regulating membership after the Russian Revolution of 1917. While recruitments were conducted mainly according to the internal Party rules, exclusion campaigns were periodically adopted to ensure ideological purity. In the decades before World War II, these reviews took various forms – from mere administrative re-registration to violent purges that involved millions of arrests.

In the labyrinth of human experience, language stands as both a monument to our ingenuity and a barrier to our understanding. It is the medium through which we convey not just thoughts and ideas but the very essence of our cultures, emotions, and identities. Yet, in its complexity lies a challenge—a challenge that has persisted through the ages, morphing with the times but never diminishing in significance.

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.

Imagination on Fire: The Literary Career of Alice Muriel Williamson

Author: 

Rex, Richard

Credentials: 

Richard Rex retired from the University of Utah. He is the author of a collection of Chaucer essays titled The Sins of Madame Eglentyne, as well as Alice Muriel Williamson: The Secret History of an American-English Author and The Literary Career of W. B. Trites (Academica Press). He lives with his wife, Ines, on the Olympic Peninsula, in Port Angeles, Washington.

Among the most popular novels in the early decades of the twentieth century were those published by Alice Muriel Williamson, whose novels were frequently attributed on their title pages to “C. N. and A. M. Williamson.” Although it is now known that “A. M.” never wrote any fiction by “C. N.” – her husband, Charles Norris Williamson, – the view erroneously persists that the married couple were joint authors. Preceding her fame as a novelist, Alice wrote a series of sensational stories that appeared serially in journals in the 1890s.

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.

From Natura to Nature: How Love, Imagination, and Integrity Formed the Modern World

Author: 

Hipolito, T. A.

Credentials: 

T. A. (Terry) Hipolito has a background in medieval literature, having received his Ph.D. in that subject from the University of California Los Angeles, and a career in software development and artificial intelligence. His amateur endeavors have included history and philosophy. He has attempted to unify all of these disciplines in a study of Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophy, which he believes endeavors to do much the same.

From Natura to Nature traces the career of the medieval goddess Natura – Mother Nature – as she influenced the literature of the High Middle Ages up to the time of William Shakespeare and Edmund Spenser. After that, Natura’s medieval aspect morphed into the mathematics of the early modern era. The book’s subtitle includes the terms Love, Integrity, and Imagination, subjects that complement Natura’s well-known sponsorship of the phenomenon of romantic love.
