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.

The Perfect Officer: Lessons in Leadership

Author: 

Bering, Henrik 

Credentials: 

Henrik Bering is a graduate of Oxford University (Pembroke College) and has been a Professional Journalism Fellow at Stanford University. He is the author of Outpost Berlin: The American Forces in Berlin 1945-94 and Helmut Kohl: The Man Who Reunited Germany, Rebuilt Europe, and Thwarted the Soviet Empire. His essays and reviews have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, The Weekly Standard, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The New Criterion, and Policy Review.

The Perfect Officer focuses on the careers of a group of brilliant officers from the Napoleonic Wars and up to our own times: what they did right, what they did wrong, and what lessons they drew from their experiences. The book’s recurring theme is the importance of imagination, and it demonstrates how these men were constantly inspired by each other and borrowed each other’s ideas. A number of these lessons are equally applicable in the civilian sphere, with one notable difference: If a business leader errs, he may lose his position or his investment.

Carl vs. Karl: Jung and Marx, Two Icons for our Age

Author: 

Driscoll, James P., Ph.D.

Credentials: 

A scholar of Renaissance drama and Jungian psychology, James P. Driscoll, Ph.D., explores psychological approaches to the arts, religion, and public philosophy. He has written seven previous books: Identity in Shakespearean Drama, The Unfolding God of Jung and Milton, Shakespeare and Jung: The God in Time, Shakespeare’s Identities, How AIDS Activists Challenged America, Jung’s Cartography of the Psyche, and The Devil and Dr. Fauci. Driscoll has long applied his academic skills and original thinking to the LGBT, HIV, and patient rights causes. During the 1990s, he led the AIDS activist movement for FDA reform. Since then, he has distinguished himself with trenchant criticisms of oppressive bureaucracies and his work implementing critical reforms.

By drawing on the opposing ideas of Carl Jung and Karl Marx, James Driscoll’s develops fresh perspectives on urgent contemporary problems. Jung and Marx as thinkers, Driscoll contends, carry the projections of archetypal complexes that go back to the hostile Old Testament brothers Cain and Abel, whose enduring tensions shape our postmodern era.

Author: 

Buckley, Nick MBE

Credentials: 

Nick Buckley MBE is the founder of The Mancunian Way, a charity that fired him in 2020 after he published an article critical of Black Lives Matter. Following a public outcry, however, Mancunian Way’s board of trustees resigned and Nick Buckley was reinstated.

Nick Buckley MBE explores the relationship between “givers” and “takers,” and the damaging symbiotic relationship between them.

Different types of beggars are highlighted, such as politicians begging for votes, charities begging for donations, and even the woke begging for validation and attention.

Author: 

Heitzman, Chris

Credentials: 

Chris Heitzman has been a lawyer in private practice for the past 15 years and a keen observer of social and political affairs.

Book CoverWoke culture sells itself as the great progressive awakening of our time. Its proponents and followers believe that wokism is spreading love, defeating hate, and creating a better world without oppression of any kind. Those who refuse to subscribe to woke culture are dismissed as hateful people who must stand for the opposite of what woke culture stands for. Increasingly, anyone who questions the woke message is shouted down, de-platformed, and even cancelled.

The Face: A Cultural Geography

Author: 

Roth, Marty

Credentials: 

Marty Roth is Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Minnesota.

The face circulates through most things of this world: anything that has presence, that presents itself, that has a front, a surface, an appearance, an aspect, a reputation, or honor – anything that confronts, opposes, or defies – has a face. And the face is a front: from the back it is just a head, a radically different entity. In this exciting new book, distinguished philosopher Marty Roth pursues considerations of the human face in art, literature, philosophy, and other manifestations of human culture.

What is “cancel culture.” A new phrase in popular circulation for less than two years, it has provoked passionate denunciations from observers concerned with civil liberties, especially rights of free speech and expression, and apologetic defenses from opponents who advocate equity and accountability in light of new mores. Still others deny that “cancel culture” exists at all, while many claim never to have heard of it.
