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...

It wasn’t until 2009 that the then prime minister of the United Kingdom, Gordon Brown, issued an official, posthumous apology to Alan Turing for “the appalling way he was treated.” To many, this was an admission that wa...

Archivist on a Bicycle: Jiří Fiedler

by Ruth Ellen Gruber

Archivist on a Bicycle is a tribute to Jiří Fiedler, a Czech Protestant, who for most of his life documented extinct Bohemian and Moravian Jews at great danger to himself. His day job was as a children’s book editor; his passion was mapping and archiving the sites of Jewish life in the Czech lands. From the 1970s through 2014, he was an invaluable source for scholars, genealogists, museum curators — anyone in the world interested in Czech Jews. Jiří rarely talked about what he called his “strange hobby,” but viewed it as a decent person’s response to Nazism and Communism. After the Velvet Revolution, he published Jewish Sights in Bohemia and Moravia and more than one hundred scholarly articles and reviews. His electronic encyclopedia of Jewish communities at the Jewish Museum...

I Slept in Hitler's Bed: A Memoir by Jay Balter

by Jay Balter

Jay Balter did not have an easy life growing up in mid-20th century Brooklyn. His father, known to his mother only as “that son of a bitch” was many things—a music publisher who gambled away the entire family fortune he made on Broadway, a philander, a gangster, a deadbeat dad—but mostly, he was absent. Jay comes of age in the Orthodox Jewish community of Crown Heights with his mentally ill twin sister, his angry older brother, and his beloved mother, an early feminist who will do anything to support her family. In 1958, at 18 years old, he enters the US Army. During his basic training in Georgia, Jay’s anger over both American racism and the European Holocaust comes to the surface, and he vows, “I was prepared to teach those rebels a lesson. I was not prepared to roll over and...

Zionism: And the Question of Jewish Identity

by Bejarano Gutierrez, Juan Marcos

Zionism, in its simplest form, was the movement for the establishment of a Jewish state in the historic land of Israel. Today it remains the movement dedicated to the ongoing existence of a Jewish state. But Zionism was a challenge to many traditional perspectives on Jewish identity. Many events including the breakdown of rabbinic authority, the rise of Shabbati Zevi, the rise of Hasidim, and the Jewish Enlightenment contributed to the Zionist movement. Today, Israeli society has transformed Zionism. This short book surveys these critical phases of Jewish history and the part they played in the evolution of Jewish identity and self-definition....

The Jesuit Reports from North America, 1610-1764

by John Swapceinski

A modern English translation of the Jesuit Relations, actual reports from North America by French Jesuits concerning their experiences with Native American tribes during the years 1610-1764. This book is 50% longer than the Bible, containing a tremendous amount of historical content spanning over 100 years.

Stories of Europeans' first encounters with native Americans, exploration, warfare, murder, disease, torture, and cannibalism; all these are contained in the massive document you hold in your hands, and it all occurred right here in North America during the 1600s.

In early 2014, I found online a set of documents called the "Jesuit Relations". These reports, called "Relations", as in "relating" events to someone, were written by an order of French Catholic prie...

Ancient chariots of the Sahara (The forgotten civilisations of Africa)

by Taklit Mebarek

The war chariot pulled by horses is one of the most prestigious inventions ever. It is common to think that any invention in the Ancient Times, any form of civilization can only come from the East. It is the same for the invention of the chariot.

But what is the reality?

The war chariot drawn by horses was introduced in East and Ancient Egypt, around 1900 before Christ, by invaders that had swept the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Babylonia, Palestine, Syria and in Egypt. Then these invaders settled and created new civilizations in the East and in Egypt.

Who are they and where do they come from?

For the Egyptologists, these invaders who destabilized the pharaonic power in Egypt are Palestinians. However, Palestine is itself destroy...
