Aryan Imperium : The Worldview and Geopolitics of the Alt-Right

by James O'Meara

Forget cartoon frogs and tiki torches! The alt-Right is a serious intellectual movement that has plans for your future – which is where we all will be spending the rest of our lives. The essays collected here clarify and criticize the movement’s worldview and geopolitics through an examination of recent books and online articles by Jason Reza Jorjani; the unjustly neglected Amaury de Riencourt provides a useful contrast from the more conventional perspective of the post-war Anglo-American Establishment.

A History of Male Psychological Disorders in Britain, 1945-1980 (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Alison Haggett

This book is open access under a CC BY license.Statistically, women appear to suffer more frequently from depressive and anxiety disorders, featuring more regularly in primary care figures for consultations, diagnoses and prescriptions for psychotropic medication. This has been consistently so throughout the post-war period with current figures suggesting that women are approximately twice more likely to suffer from affective disorders than men. However, this book suggests that the statistical landscape reveals only part of the story. Currently, 75 per cent of suicides are among men, and this trend can also be traced back historically to data that suggests this has been the case since the beginning of the twentieth-century. This book suggests that male psychological illness was in fact no less common, but that it emerged in complex ways and was understood differently in response to prevailing cultural and medical forces. The book explores a host of medical, cultural and social factors that raise important questions about historical and current perceptions of gender and mental illness.

Follow: Akashic Dreaming Through Time

by Sonia Iris Lozada

In FOLLOW, Akashic Dreaming through Time, a poetry picture book, Sonia Iris Lozada captures the essence of many lifetimes through meditations and dreams. Every stanza emulates the traveling soul’s history. The individuals’ experiences from anger to forgiveness and acceptance which guides us home.First stanza:Fire burns tall in the kiln. Hues sway of saffron, cardinal, amber with hints of cobalt mesmerize as the salty drops from forehead—stings eyes. Hands bleed from the dryness of yellow clay creating blood henna. Craft soldiers for Emperor Qin Shi Huang—molding soldier’s figure, carve fine details. Body aches from laboring days, thoughts of children playing, yearning family. Outside the screams of whips upon the skin of convicts in this blistering purgatory. Death visited before thirty-eight years, my handmade tile—tombstone. Ask and it shall be given—silence. Yet, I followed.

Filling in the Pieces: A Survival Story of the Holocaust

by Izaak Sturm

This autobiography is a compelling tale of an individual who survived the full brunt of the Shoah as a teenager, from the first day of the war in the small town of Dembitz in 1939 to liberation in Bergen Belsen in 1945. The book first provides a nostalgic of Izaak's prewar life and goes on to detail how his family and community were gradually torn asunder by the Nazi occupation. During the war, Izaak was variously imprisoned in ghettos, work camps, and notorious concentration camps, all the while enduring and witnessing horrific cruelty all around him. Each step of his grueling six year journey is carefully remembered and documented in this transfixing memoir. Despite the magnitude of what Izaak faced, he was able to survive in body and spirit. Preserving the seed of religious life planted by his family and community, he was able to rebuild his entire world.

Bimini Glass and the Politics of Survival

by Angela Bowey

This is the story of six young artists who trained and became world famous in Vienna in the 1920s. Fritz Lampl was a poet and writer who turned to designing art glass; his wife Hilde and her sister Fritzi were dress designers; her brothers Josef and Artur Berger were architects and Josef's wife Margarete was a painter. They won international prizes and exhibited their work around the world.

Four of them settled in war-time London and started from scratch to re-establish their studios and their lives. This is their story.

Worked To Death: Auschwitz-Birkenau Holocaust

by Amy Cravitz

This is the seventh book that Amy has put together in her quest to uncover every faucet of daily life in the hell of a German extermination camp. Translated from its original Polish, Amy strives to maintain the exact flavor of psychological terror that the Jewish workers at Auschwitz-Birkenau had to endure. Many were put to death or simply died on their own. Others were given scraps of food in return for slaving away for long days of merciless back breaking labor. Sometimes the work seemed worse than death itself. Here, the every day life of one such worker is chronicled, but with a twist. This particular worker finds his way into one of the 'trick programs' put together to fool Red Cross visiting groups. In this fascinating account, we can readily see how easy it would have been to trick the international rights group into thinking all was well for the prisoners at Auschwitz. We also get a first hand look at the types of work available for prisoners, including an aeroplane parts machine that seemed more intent on devouring fingers than shaping steel parts.

My Soul is Filled With Joy: A Holocaust Story

by Karen Treiger

This Bronze Medal Winning book (Independent Publishers Book Award in the category of World History) tells the story of Sam and Esther Goldberg who met in the Polish forest – just outside of the Treblinka Death Camp. It was August 3, 1943, just one day after Sam escaped the Camp during a prisoner uprising. With 870,000 murdered at Treblinka, Sam was one of approximately 65 to survive and live until the end of the war. Esther had been hiding in that patch of forest for a year and was out that morning, looking for mushrooms to eat. They met and after hearing of the prisoner revolt, she took him to the Righteous Gentiles who, at danger to themselves, hid them in their barn for three days while the Nazis, Ukrainians and Poles scoured the area. Deciding to stay and hide with Esther, they dug a forest pit where they “lived” when it was not freezing. They subsisted in the pit and the barns – hungry, cold, and scared – for another year until they were liberated by the Red Army in July of 1944. This is only one piece of their harrowing story of survival. Sam and Esther were Holocaust survivors who lost their entire families because of Hitler’s Final Solution. After four years in Displaced Person’s Camps, they arrived in New York Harbor to build a new life. The author, Karen Treiger, is Sam and Esther’s daughter-in-law, and with in-depth research and a bit of luck was able to find the three surviving children of the Styś families – those Righteous Gentiles who helped Sam and Esther during that dark time. She and her family traveled to Poland to walk in Sam and Esther’s footsteps and to meet the Styś children. It was intensely emotional, and the family heard some of what Sam and Esther lived through from those who helped them survive. Also, with the help of a Polish Priest, she was able to locate and meet a Goldberg cousin they never knew they had. My Soul is Filled with Joy: A Holocaust Story brings to life the horror of the Nazis’ actions and the toll that it exacted on so many Jewish families. This is also a story of hope, love and determination; of a family rediscovering the path taken by their parents to find life and freedom in a new world. Sam and Esther’s story is one of love and the will to live no matter what they had to endure. It reminds us that we are still learning the lessons of the Holocaust. TRIBUTES “Karen has written a powerful and personal account of Sam and Esther Goldberg. This book is a must read for those interested in the greatest crime in the history of mankind.” Chris Webb, Author/Historian, Founder of the Holocaust Historical Society,br> “One can only bow one’s head, out of an unutterable gratitude, to the author for her contribution to the sacred narrative of our people. I call this book sacred, for (as with all forms of scripture) it tells not only what happened - but how to live in light of the story.”Rabbi Yitz Greenberg, President Emeritus, CLAL: The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership; chairman, the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, 2000-2002. “We are haunted by the question of inexplicable evil. If you want to be inspired in spite of the horrors one human being can do to another human being, read this book.”Rabbi Michael Schudrich, Chief Rabbi of Poland “In Karen Treiger’s important book she tells the story of her in-laws. Their suitcases were filled with only tragic and bitter memories. Yet, they had the courage to pick themselves up by the bootstraps, wipe away the tears, turn despair into hope, and rebuild Jewish life.”Rabbi Marvin Hier, Founder and Dean, Simon Wiesenthal Center

Sarinka: A Sephardic Holocaust Journey: From Yugoslavia To An Internment Camp in America

by F. Linda Cohen

Sarinka is a moving Holocaust story that traces the life of a young woman beginning with her childhood in prewar Yugoslavia to experience living on the run, in hiding, and as a nurse among Tito’s partisans. She was one of the 982 refugees who resided at the Fort Ontario Emergency Refugee Shelter that was established in America for victims of the Nazi Holocaust during WWII. Author and daughter of the heroine, Linda Cohen takes the readers on a unique journey as she describes life in Yugoslavia—through her mother’s eyes—during the war and all the restrictions and dangers she encountered once Yugoslavia became occupied by the Axis powers. Heroic and tragic in parts, Sarinka embodies the resiliency of the human spirit. --Rebecca Fisher, Researcher at the Safe Haven Holocaust Refugee Shelter Museum Oswego, NYSarinka is beautifully written, historically accurate and a genuine page turner. Young people who read this book will understand the truth of being a refugee. They will learn what it means to lose everything—one’s home, one’s language, one’s culture. And yet they will find hope in this very moving story. --Ruth Gruber, March 14, 2010 Sarinka, a true story about a young girl set in WWII is one of perseverance and survival. Her world is suddenly shattered when the running and hiding began the very day she dreamed of her whole life, her wedding day. Sarinka and her husband face danger and uncertainty as they desperately try to save their lives. No matter how tough life gets, Sarinka and her husband never give up hope, even when they find themselves in an internment camp in America, that many never knew existed in 1944.

Revolution of the Mind: Higher Learning among the Bolsheviks, 1918–1929 (Studies of the Harriman Institute)

by Michael David-Fox

Using archival materials never previously accessible to Western scholars, Michael David-Fox analyzes Bolshevik Party educational and research initiatives in higher learning after 1917. His fresh consideration of the era of the New Economic Policy and cultural politics after the Revolution explains how new communist institutions rose to parallel and rival conventional higher learning from the Academy of Sciences to the universities. Beginning with the creation of the first party school by intellectuals on the island of Capri in 1909, David-Fox argues, the Bolshevik cultural project was tightly linked to party educational institutions. He provides the first account of the early history and politics of three major institutions founded after the Revolution: Sverdlov Communist University, where the quest to transform everyday life gripped the student movement; the Institute of Red Professors, where the Bolsheviks sought to train a new communist intellectual or red specialist; and the Communist Academy, headquarters for a planned, collectivist, proletarian science.

Mysticism in Nepal and Tibet, The Himalayan Journals of M.G. Hawking: August 2019 Edition Exploratory Anthology

by M.G. Hawking

New Release There has long been a deep desire felt by scholars, both past and present, to recover the silent secrets of the ancient cultures of Tibet and Nepal, to trace the background of their prehistoric spiritual development as derived from ever earlier cultures, and then to discover whatever modern manifestations might still exist in the remote margins of that mysterious world. This desire has exerted a powerful pull on the imaginations of Westerners—historians, philologists, Tibetologists, philosophers, physicists, and psi researchers alike.Composed from the journals of explorer M.G. Hawking’s five years in remote areas of the Himalayas, this book transports the reader into regions of our planet that in all history only a handful of people have experienced, a journey that leads to the discovery of the most refined and powerful mystical knowledge possessed by the human race.’Mystical’ adj. 1.1 Having a spiritual significance that transcends human understanding; 1.3 Of hidden or esoteric meaning; 2.0 Inspiring a sense of spiritual mystery, awe, and fascination; 2.1 Concerned with the soul or spirit, rather than with material things; 2.2 Having a spiritual meaning or reality that is neither apparent to the senses nor obvious to the intelligence. Oxford English Dictionary, Oxford University Press, 2nd Ed., 1989.Experience has proven that this mystical knowledge offers the illumination and guidance necessary to create a superlative life, but of which few have a full appreciation. If truly understood through patient study, fully integrated into your core belief system, and practiced with unwavering diligence, this knowledge can wholly transform your experience of this world in every positive way imaginable.Many years ago, on an extended trek into a largely unexplored inner region of the vast wilderness of the Himalayas, Hawking chanced on an unexpected find. In a majestic valley surrounded by towering ice peaks, he encountered a beautiful small village called Siddhalaya. In that community he had the privilege of meeting a number of truly extraordinary men and women. This encounter marked the beginning of sixty-two months Hawking spent in the Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet, during which time he kept detailed records of his adventures, experiences, and conversations with those highly enlightened individuals.In association with Hawking, over the past several years our team at Wisdom Masters Press has worked diligently to compose a series of books based on his journals and field notes. This was a daunting assignment; Hawking accumulated a rich treasury of over 14,000 pages of hand-written journal notes, along with another 4,500 pages of field notes. It was a fascinating if formidable task, one that could not have been accomplished without the assistance and encouragement of some of the extraordinary individuals Hawking met in the Himalayas, experiences that filled everyone involved with a deep sense of awe and wonder.About this Book: This volume presents a comprehensive anthology of excerpts from seven books containing detailed narratives of Hawking’s various experiences and conversations, including first-hand accounts of the psychokinetic abilities he witnessed and in-depth descriptions of the esoteric knowledge that made such extraordinary abilities possible. Includes a suggested reading list with book descriptions.New Release, Kindle e-reader page count 182 (estimated, actual page count varies with the reading device used).

True Crime Stories Volume 12: 12 Shocking True Crime Murder Cases (True Crime Anthology)

by Jack Rosewood

In the following book you will be introduced to twelve shocking true crime cases that will keep you engage and turning the pages even as you become disturbed by the depths of the depravity some of these criminals have demonstrated. These twelve cases cover 100 years of crime history over several different countries, demonstrating once more that serious crime is a phenomenon that knows no boundaries. One of the major themes of this volume is crimes against the most vulnerable people in our society, including the elderly and the young. You will read about a case in Indiana where a twelve-year-old girl was brutally tortured and murdered, not by a deranged pedophile or a career criminal, but by girls her own age who let their undeveloped minds and peer pressure get out of hand. The bizarre case of a serial killer who targeted elderly women in Australia is also profiled, demonstrating that not only are killers driven by diverse motives, many of which will be impossible for most of us to understand, but also that not all serial killer victims are society’s “throw aways.” You will also read about two contestants for the “worst parent of all-time award.” These two separate cases involved men, who instead of protecting and caring for their children, ultimately played major roles in the horrible, painful deaths of their children. Educate yourself on the world of true crime and learn that not everything is always as it seems. Follow the criminal investigations as detectives from around the world broke some of the most baffling true crime cases of the last 100 years.

Voices of the Holocaust: Survivors of the Holocaust Share Their Stories

by Stephen McGrann

When the Allies emerged victorious at the end of WWII, the world was stunned to learn of what was described by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill as "... a crime without a name."Eventually the industrialised and wholesale murder of millions of European Jews would be assigned a name, the Holocaust.Six million people lost their lives in concentration camps scattered all over Germany and eastern Europe.To this day people who were born years after its happening are still baffled as to how such a thing could have occurred at all.How did a nation renowned over the world for its culture, artistic genius, scientific advancement, and economic prowess so quickly and so willingly allow itself to be consumed by madness?The Holocaust was not some freak occurrence that occurred in ancient history, and in a far off land that was yet to be civilised. It happened in a nation just like ours, and was only made possible by the efforts and obedience of people just like you and I. Rather than just being an indictment of the society that was Nazi Germany, the Holocaust should be seen as an indictment of mankind. It is, and should always be, our eternal warning from history.To that end, the stories of the souls who survived the Holocaust need to be told over and over again, and to as many people whom are willing to listen to their tales.Jakob Blankitny: Born and raised in a small Polish town, young Jacob's life is turned upside down when he is transported to the notorious Warsaw ghetto. From their he and his family are moved on to the notorious Auschwitz camp. While Jakob would survive the Holocaust by the skin of his teeth, those closest to him were not so lucky.Rosa Marie Burger: Growing up Jewish in a German town during WWII was no easy feat. Rosa's family had to rely on the benevolence and better nature of neighbours to avoid detection by the SS.Martin Kappel: When he and hundreds of other Jews are literally marched out of Germany in the middle of the night, a young Martin Kappel must make his way to England if he is to survive the Holocaust.Irene Safran: Irene met the infamous Dr.Josef Mengele several times during her stay at Auschwitz. As the Allies close in to liberate her and the others still alive, the Nazis have one cruel act still up their sleeves.Haya Friedman: Haya prayed every day that she would get out of Auschwitz. Then one day it seemed as if her prayers had been answered when the SS transferred her to a factory many miles away. There she meets a mysterious stranger who seems determined to keep her and the other Jews alive.Marian Kalwary: When Marian found himself living in the Warsaw ghetto, it was only a matter of time before he was transferred to Auschwitz for extermination. His mother manages to smuggle him out of the ghetto and gets him to a safe house. It isn't long though before the locals start to become suspicious of the boy though, and Marian realises that there is no such thing as "a safe place."Peter Kohnstam: as the Nazi menace spreads across Europe, Peter is willing to do anything to protect his family. Thanks to some rather wonderful friends, he succeeds in doing so. Peter's story is a wonderful, heart-warming tale and serves to remind that "evil prevails when good people do nothing."

NEW WORLD GENESIS: Adam and Eve: A Story of Our Beginning with Ancient Astronauts relating to Adam and Eve

by James E. Hansen

Brow-raising details abound in this expansive and shocking new interpretation of the biblical Genesis story. This dialogue-filled narrative includes details hitherto unknown to the average reader concerning not only ‘God’ and his ‘angels’ but of Adam and Eve, along with the first 10 generations. The reconstructed story is based on English translations (those in the public domain) of the following ancient texts (some banned by the Catholic church): Book of Adam and Eve; Book of the Life of Adam and Eve; Apocalypse of Moses; Book of Enoch; Book of Jubilees; The Cave of Treasures; Book of Jasher; The Bible; The Koran; and miscellaneous texts from the ancient Sumerians, Egyptians, Akkadians, Chaldeans, Babylonians, Assyrians, Canaanites, and others, even ancient Native Americans.

After careful examination, ‘God’ and the ‘angels’ are not required to be supernatural; rather, they can be technologically advanced, human-like aliens who come to Earth and establish a colony with a mission. They first build a hydroelectric dam and reservoir, and then a sea-land and a bio-dome. The biggest revelation, however, is…well, I won’t spoil it for you. But later, when their enlisted workers revolt due to not having enough time off, they engineer ‘simpleton’ replacement workers using indigenous genes with alien genes. They free the rebels but limit them to the planet and impose a tithe. Thereafter, Adam is ‘created’ and becomes the lord and king of man-kind. ‘Angels’ must serve and protect him. Adam, however, disobeys a law and he and his subjects are exiled and bound to a covenant to produce gold. This is the shocking life and times of Adam and Eve.

Constructions of Cancer in Early Modern England: Ravenous Natures (Palgrave Studies in Literature, Science and Medicine)

by Alanna Skuse

This book is open access under a CC-BY licence. Cancer is perhaps the modern world's most feared disease. Yet, we know relatively little about this malady's history before the nineteenth century. This book provides the first in-depth examination of perceptions of cancerous disease in early modern England. Looking to drama, poetry and polemic as well as medical texts and personal accounts, it contends that early modern people possessed an understanding of cancer which remains recognizable to us today. Many of the ways in which medical practitioners and lay people imagined cancer – as a 'woman's disease' or a 'beast' inside the body – remain strikingly familiar, and they helped to make this disease a byword for treachery and cruelty in discussions of religion, culture and politics. Equally, cancer treatments were among the era's most radical medical and surgical procedures. From buttered frog ointments to agonizing and dangerous surgeries, they raised abiding questions about the nature of disease and the proper role of the medical practitioner.

To "Paradise" and Back

by Charles Sawikin

Incredible memoir of Chaim Sawikin, a sixteen-year-old Jewish boy who was separated from his family at the start of World War II and then survived in the Soviet labor camp system. As he confronts every life-threatening situation, he draws upon his instincts and resourcefulness, while trying to retain the essential humanity instilled by his parents and his socialist upbringing. With almost every incident turning upon a stroke of luck, Chaim, raised an atheist, begins to see the world as unhinged, devoid of pattern or justice. But the idea that all his and others' suffering was random, so hard to accept, brings him around to deeper thoughts about the role of fate or God in the world. Finally he looks back on these times with no answers, only more questions.
