The Missing Chapter: What Was Left Out of The Secret Journals Of Adolf Hitler

by A. G. Mogan

The Missing Chapter is just that - the chapter that was removed from The Secret Journals of Adolf Hitler during the editorial review. It centres around the Nazi Party Rally of 1927, illustrating the increasing power of the Nazis, the Torchlight procession, and the Dedication of Banners, all serving to instill into the minds of the people the idea of spirituality being attached to the Nazi cult. Hitler’s obsession with the Holy Lance, better known as The Spear of Destiny is also discussed. The spear was said to have magical powers, having once been used at the Crucifixion to wound the side of Christ. Hitler firmly believed that whoever had the Spear became invincible and could conquer the world.Enjoy!...

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...

Locomotion: The Railway Revolution

by Nicholas Faith

"The effects of the railways on society are too universal and long-lasting to be compressed within a single volume. Like some many-headed Hindu god they contain life and death, creation and destruction, squalor and magnificence. All I can do is to sketch some of the more interesting aspects, to provide my readers with food for thought, to enable them to look more closely, not so much at the railways they use, as at the townscape and landscape around them, and to detect their still all-pervasive influence."Written alongside a BBC2 series, Locomotion examines the extensive impact of railways on the modern world.From opening up new connections and opportunities for commerce, their influence was vast, pervasive and exhilarating – propelled by industrial innovation and heralding the beginning...

The Electrification of Russia, 1880–1926

by Jonathan Coopersmith

≤p≥he Electrification of Russia, 1880–1926 is the first full account of the widespread adoption of electricity in Russia, from the beginning in the 1880s to its early years as a state technology under Soviet rule. Jonathan Coopersmith has mined the archives for both the tsarist and the Soviet periods to examine a crucial element in the modernization of Russia. Coopersmith shows how the Communist Party forged an alliance with engineers to harness the socially transformative power of this science-based enterprise. A centralized plan of electrification triumphed, to the benefit of the Communist Party and the detriment of local governments and the electrical engineers. Coopersmith's narrative of how this came to be elucidates the deep-seated and chronic conflict between the utopianism of...
