The Secret History of Soviet Russia s Police State Book Excerpt:

'[R]eadable and thoughtful . . . does an excellent job of exploring how the murderous political police in all its incarnations defined the Soviet Union, and left a poisonous legacy still with us today' Professor Mark Galeotti, author of The Vory and A Short History of Russia Repression, control, manipulation and elimination of enemies assisted in the establishment of the Soviet state, and helped maintain it in power, but could not, in the end, prevent its collapse. Citizens of the West have, for the most part, been told a very simplified story of the repressive 'totalitarian' state that was the USSR. In fact, it was sustained by more than just policing and force. No amount of revisionist history can erase the reality of millions controlled, imprisoned and killed, but there was much more to the USSR's one-party state than this. Whittock tells a more complex story of the combination of cruelty, co-operation and compromise required to build and run a one-party state. Much of this is the story of the role played by the secret police in creating and sustaining such a form of government, but it is much more than simply a 'history of the secret police'. This is because the 'police state' which emerged (in which dissent, both real and imaginary, was undoubtedly policed, threatened and ruthlessly eliminated) was more than just the product of the arrests, interrogations, executions and imprisonments carried out by the secret police. The USSR was also made possible by a battle for hearts and minds which led millions of people to feel that they really had benefited from the system and had a stake in the new society.

The Trumping of America Book Excerpt:

Trump alone is not to blame... How does it reflect on North American societal values when wealth trumps humanity, selfish individualism trumps compassion, the need to be entertained and to win trumps the truth, and racism and misogyny are rewarded with the most powerful position in the world? The political rise of Donald Trump, from the cutthroat Republican primary process to his move to the White House, has ushered in a new age of politics in the United States. This is a comprehensive analysis of the events surrounding the 2016 presidential election and the unprecedented first year of Donald Trump’s presidency. Pamela Hines highlights the growing distortion of American democracy, which threatens political systems around the world. As a Canadian living just across the border, Hines provides a unique perspective on the international impact of the election; explores the roles of religion, racism, nationalism, and gender bias; and critiques the media and its reckless coverage of Trump’s ascension. The Trump presidency is a wake-up call to citizens of the free world. Democracy is at risk, yet power remains in the hands of the people. This assault on democracy can be curtailed only if voters make informed decisions and understand the consequences of their choices—while they still have the right to choose.

Misogyny Book Excerpt:

New aspects of the misogyny that impacts girls and women worldwide continue to emerge every day. However, recent movements (e.g., #MeToo, Time's Up, the Women's March) indicate a strong hunger for a meaningful resource for thoughtful activists. Impassioned but practical, this book discusses the social contexts of misogyny, such as toxic masculinity and rape culture. It traces the history of misogyny and considers its meaning today-what is new and what is old. The author also proposes strategies for effective feminist action. Written for advocates of gender equality who are already aware of misogyny, the book includes Action Steps as tools for activism on both the individual and political levels. Misogyny is a timely text that offers concrete guidance as we strive for the egalitarian society that, despite all setbacks, we are capable of achieving.

Summary of Hillary’s America by Dinesh D’Souza | Includes Analysis Preview: Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party is a history of the Democratic Party, which author Dinesh D’Souza argues is the source of all evil and iniquity in American history. Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee for president, is a crook who entered politics for personal gain. As such, she is the natural representative of the corrupt Democratic Party. Some argue that Thomas Jefferson was the founder of the Democratic Party. In reality, the modern Democratic Party and its history of plunder began with Andrew Jackson’s presidency in 1829. Jackson was a military general before taking office. During his military career, he forced Native Americans off their land and then seized it to enrich himself and his cronies. The use of government power for personal enrichment is a quintessential Democratic tactic. Jackson was also a slave owner, and the Democrats were the party of slavery.

Summary of Hillary s America Book Excerpt:

Hillary's America by Dinesh D'Souza | Book Summary A look at the ongoing elections paints a very different picture from the truth. What many don't know is that the media's obsession with Donald Trump is a well-crafted scheme by the Democrats to maintain focus away from them. This may seem like an outrageous claim at first but it will become clear as you continue to read this book.One way of ensuring that people don't start questioning Hillary Clintons achievements and the people destroyed by her ways, is keeping the spot light away from her as much as possible. The Democrats wish to maintain the picture they have painted of Hillary as a people's champion intact. On looking at her trail since she got into politics, a very different picture comes into view of this very woman. Hillary Clinton however is not the only culprit of hiding her true self from the public to gain votes; she is just one example. The Democratic Party candidates from Obama to Bill all through to their founders have the same characteristics of twisting the truth to suit their dubious ways. Contrary to what Progressives claim, it was them that supported slavery so as to get free labor and the Republicans are the heroes of Civil Rights. This is just one of the many pieces of history that they have corrupted to earn votes.From corruption, protecting criminals in court, pardoning criminals in jail and blaming victims the Clintons have done it all. But due to the heavy investments of the Democratic Party in the media the truth is often swept under the rug and the Democratic criminal walks away. The public is then fed a lie and their tyranny continues. The Democratic Party's past upon scrutiny is also filled with similar stories.While Progressives argue that the sins of their founders cannot be blamed on the current party, they Clintons continue with their tricks stealing from third world countries, over throwing foreign governments all in the name of enriching themselves while thousands die and others are displaced. These are just a few examples of the many more evils discussed in the following chapters on the ways of the Democrats.The author later on looks at why the Republicans have not respond effectively to the Democrats and what they can do to beat them in the coming elections.

The Secret History of Wonder Woman Book Excerpt:

Within the origin of one of the world’s most iconic superheroes hides a fascinating family story—and a crucial history of feminism in the twentieth-century. “Everything you might want in a page-turner … skeletons in the closet, a believe-it-or-not weirdness in its biographical details, and something else that secretly powers even the most “serious” feminist history—fun.” —Entertainment Weekly The Secret History of Wonder Woman is a tour de force of intellectual and cultural history. Wonder Woman, Jill Lepore argues, is the missing link in the history of the struggle for women’s rights—a chain of events that begins with the women’s suffrage campaigns of the early 1900s and ends with the troubled place of feminism a century later. Lepore, a Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer, has uncovered an astonishing trove of documents, including the never-before-seen private papers of Wonder Woman’s creator, William Moulton Marston. The Marston family story is a tale of drama, intrigue, and irony. In the 1920s, Marston and his wife brought into their home Olive Byrne, the niece of Margaret Sanger, one of the most influential feminists of the twentieth century. Even while celebrating conventional family life in a regular column that Marston and Byrne wrote for Family Circle, they themselves pursued lives of extraordinary nonconformity. Marston, internationally known as an expert on truth—he invented the lie detector test—lived a life of secrets, only to spill them on the pages of Wonder Woman. Includes a new afterword with fresh revelations based on never before seen letters and photographs from the Marston family’s papers, and 161 illustrations and 16 pages in full color.

The Secret History of Vladimir Nabokov Book Excerpt:

A startling and revelatory examination of Nabokov’s life and works—notably Pale Fire and Lolita—bringing new insight into one of the twentieth century’s most enigmatic authors. Vladimir Nabokov witnessed the horrors of his century, escaping Revolutionary Russia then Germany under Hitler, and fled France with his Jewish wife and son just weeks before Paris fell to the Nazis. He repeatedly faced accusations of turning a blind eye to human suffering to write artful tales of depravity. But does one of the greatest writers in the English language really deserve the label of amoral aesthete bestowed on him by so many critics? Using information from newly-declassified intelligence files and recovered military history, Pitzer argues that far from being a proponent of art for art’s sake, Nabokov managed to hide disturbing history in his fiction—history that has gone unnoticed for decades. Nabokov emerges as a kind of documentary conjurer, spending decades of his career recording a saga of forgotten concentration camps and searing bigotry, from WWI to the Gulag and the Holocaust. Lolita surrenders Humbert Humbert’s secret identity, and reveals a Nabokov appalled by American anti-Semitism. The lunatic narrator of Pale Fire recalls Russian tragedies that once haunted the world. From Tsarist courts to Nazi film sets, from the CIA to wartime Casablanca, the story of Nabokov’s family is the story of his century—and both are woven inextricably into his fiction.

Architecture Media and Memory Book Excerpt:

Architecture, Media and Memory examines the wide range of urban sites impacted by September 11 and its aftermath – from the spontaneous memorials that emerged in Union Square in the hours after the attacks, to the reconstruction at Ground Zero, to vast ongoing landscape urbanism projects beyond. Yet this is not simply a book about post-9/11 architecture. It instead presents 9/11 as a multifaceted case study to explore a discourse on memory and its representation in the built environment. It argues that the reconstruction of New York must be considered in relation to larger issues of urban development, ongoing global conflicts, the rise of digital media, and the culture, philosophy and aesthetics of memory. It shows how understanding architecture in New York post-9/11 requires bringing memory into contact with a complex array of political, economic and social forces. Demonstrating an ability to explain complex philosophical ideas in language that will be accessible to students and researchers alike in architecture, urban studies, cultural studies and memory studies, this book serves as a thought-provoking account of the intertwining of contemporary architecture, media and memory.

What Is Going On In The Land Of Freedom Book Excerpt:

The ability to critical thinking is our first ability that should come before our right of freedom of speech. If we cannot think by ourselves, we cannot speak by ourselves, either. In this book, we analyze a few controversial events and subjects, breaking them down under a moderate rational point of view, analyzing them, together with the readers and in the light of the ration, to exercise our ability to critical think, following Descartes' rationalism. I was born under a dictatorship regime, where we were not able to vote for president, we didn't have freedom of expression, and we could not fight for a better future. Many people that fought against the regime are now dead. Now, that I can enjoy freedom here in America, it is very difficult to observe people trying to implement the censorship in our environment and suppressing one of our rights, the freedom of expressing ourselves. In addition, it is impossible to be in silence, while the mainstream media is trying to manipulate our minds and curtail our right to think by ourselves. This book is a good exercise to everyone that wants to grow strong against the mainstream media mind control and to everyone that is strong enough to empower the thinking diversity and the discussion exercise.
