James Madison, Public Servant: A Biography

Author: 

Rose, Gary L., PhD

Credentials: 

Gary L. Rose, Ph.D., is Professor of Politics and Scholar in Residence at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut. A college instructor for nearly five decades, Professor Rose has authored and edited fifteen books on presidential politics, Constitutional law, and Connecticut’s state and local government. His Constitutional law book, Shaping a Nation (2010), published in English and Chinese, was recommended by the National Association of Scholars for colleges and universities that have common reading programs. Professor Rose’s book, Haywire (2017) meticulously tracked every dimension of the 2016 presidential contest and is one of the most comprehensive and detailed treatments of a presidential election ever written. His acclaimed book The American Presidency Under Siege (1997) was favorably reviewed in the American Political Science Review. In addition to his teaching and writing, Professor Rose provides routine political commentary for national, state and local media. His comments have been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, and the Hartford Courant. He has appeared as a political commentator on NBC Nightly News, Fox News, and several local news shows in Connecticut. A recipient of several teaching and scholarship awards, Professor Rose often serves as a speaker for civic and business organizations. In 2011, he was named Connecticut Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

Long relegated to the shadows of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, the role of James Madison in shaping America, its ideals, and its institutions resonates in the very soul of our nation. A lifelong public servant, Madison was a critical – if underappreciated – architect of the American Republic. Gary L. Rose’s James Madison, Public Servant shines an essential light on Madison’s wide-ranging legacy.

How Viktor Orbán Plays To Win: The Resurgence of Central Europe

Author: 

Gibelin, Thibaud

Credentials: 

Thibaud Gibelin was born on January 6, 1990, in Aix-en-Provence, France. After studying history and political science, he worked in Brussels at the European Parliament and then taught in private secondary schools and, since 2021, at the Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC) in Budapest, Hungary. He is currently completing his doctorate in political science at the Université Paris Est-Créteil and in contemporary history at the Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Budapest. His research focuses on the reassertion of politics in Europe, with particular reference to recent developments in Hungary.

With Brexit complete, the European Union unbalanced, and populist national conservatism on the march across the continent, winds of rebellion continue to blow from Central Europe, where Hungary’s dynamic leader Viktor Orbán has been building a political alternative to neoliberal statism. Prime Minister of Hungary from 1998 to 2002, Orbán’s continuation in power since 2010 has marked a real European turning point as he transcends conventional divisions. He is an advocate of European unity, but a nemesis of the Brussels superstate.

The Twilight of Ideologies

Author: 

de la Mora, Gonzalo Fernández

Credentials: 

“The most complete and sophisticated of all the intellectuals”
- Stanley Payne, Professor Emeritus of History, University of Wisconsin, Madison

Author: One of Spain’s most distinguished philosophers, Gonzalo Fernández de la Mora y Mon was born in Barcelona on April 30, 1924. He graduated in law and philosophy from the University of Madrid with the highest distinction in both subjects and then entered the Spanish diplomatic corps, serving in West Germany and Greece and as head of the Diplomatic School of Spain. In 1950, he married Isabel Varela, with whom he had four children. In 1953, Fernández de la Mora y Mon began a lengthy collaboration with the conservative monarchist daily ABC. From 1970 to 1974, he served as Spain’s Minister of Public Works and later held a seat in parliament. He became a member of Spain’s Royal Academy of Political and Moral Sciences in 1972. In 1983, he founded the bimonthly journal Razón Española, a publication devoted to the defense of a humanistic world view. He died at home on February 10, 2002.

Translator: Tom Burns (b. 1948) is a well-known journalist and essayist brought up between Britain and Spain. He graduated in Modern History from the University of Oxford and was Deputy President and Communications Director for the Recoletos Comunicación Group. Since 1970, he has developed a distinguished career in journalism, including work in Madrid as foreign correspondent for the Financial Times, Washington Post, and Newsweek. Currently, he is a director at Eurocofín, a leading corporate communications and financial consultancy company, as well as a contributor to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo. In 2001, Burns was appointed to the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his work promoting Spanish-British relations. He is the author of numerous books on Spanish state and society.

In this classic study, now available in English for the first time, the late Spanish philosopher Gonzalo Fernández de la Mora reconsiders the antithesis of pathos and logos in the political realm. In real life, he postulates, ideology has mostly undesirable effects: social tension, extremism, pugnacity, and the substitution of myths for facts. Consistent with this observation, political life in the second half of the twentieth century was ruthlessly rationalized. Opposing political programs seemed to be converging. Religion seemed to be becoming less important.

Constructing the Soviet Elite: Recruitments, Exclusions, and Repressions Within the Soviet Communist Party, 1917-1941

Author: 

Moullec, Gaël-Georges

Credentials: 

Gaël-Georges Moullec is a specialist in Russian History and the history of the international communist movement. Having served as a staff officer at NATO Headquarters, he is currently lecturer at the University of Paris XIII and the Polytechnic University of Valenciennes, and Associate Researcher and Chair of Geopolitics at Rennes School of Business. He is the author of eight books including Moscou – 1917: Les rapports d’Albert Remes, consul du Royaume de Belgique and Trois instants de printemps, le renseignement diplomatique soviétique dans la France gaulliste.

The Soviet Communist Party faced a large-scale problem of regulating membership after the Russian Revolution of 1917. While recruitments were conducted mainly according to the internal Party rules, exclusion campaigns were periodically adopted to ensure ideological purity. In the decades before World War II, these reviews took various forms – from mere administrative re-registration to violent purges that involved millions of arrests.
