Truth, Memory, Justice: One Hundred Years After the Bolshevik Revolution

Author: 

Smith, Marion, Executive Director, Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation; Murray Bessette, Director of Academic Programs, Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation: Editors

Over a century ago, a small group of Red Guards seized the Winter Palace in the Russian capital of Petrograd (St. Petersburg) and installed the world’s first communist government. The Bolshevik Revolution marked the beginning of a century in which adherents to communist ideology committed some of the worst and most widespread atrocities known to history. The founding of the Soviet Union inaugurated a century of political turmoil around the globe by pioneering, in spectacular fashion, a new model of political, economic, cultural, and institutional revolution.

Russia's Geostrategic Outlook and the Syrian Crisis (St. James's Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Tohme, Hicham, Ph.D., Sheffield University

Credentials: 

Instructor in History and Media Studies, American University of Beirut

In this groundbreaking study, international relations scholar Hicham Tohme offers a critique of current academic, scholarly, and public understandings of Russia’s geostrategic outlook through the lens of the ongoing Syrian crisis. This critique is based on a reassessment of four key concepts that shape our knowledge of Russia’s foreign policy. First, the Westphalian state system is an inadequate a point of reference when applied to a country that still perceives itself and behaves as an empire.

A History of the Orthodox Church in Hawaii: Two Hundred Years on the Road

Author: 

Khisamutdinov, Ph.D., Amir A., Far Eastern Federal University (Vladivostok, Russia) and V. Rev. Anatole Lyovin, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, University of Hawai'i at Manoa

A History of the Orthodox Church in Hawaii recounts the many attempts to establish an Orthodox religious community in the Hawaiian islands. While the first Christian service in Hawaii was the Church of England funeral service for Captain James Cook at the end of the eighteenth century, the first full Christian liturgy (mass) on Hawaiian soil was an Orthodox Easter service celebrated in the early nineteenth century by the chaplain and crew of a Russian ship on a mission of exploration.

Author: 

Nielson, Jonathan M. Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara

Credentials: 

Author of "American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919"

The Second World War was to Alaska what the First World War had been to the nation. The essential reality of Alaska’s experience during World War II was the end of its isolation from the continental United States. As a consequence of the war, Alaska’s territorial era entered its twilight years, eclipsed by the dawn of statehood nineteen years later and driven largely by military imperatives. A further legacy was Alaska’s inevitably

A History of Alaska, Volume II: Alaska On the Road to War

Author: 

Nielson, Jonathan M. Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara

Credentials: 

Author of *American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919

The most significant military development to touch Alaska during the interwar years was the advent of air power, an innovation that completely altered Alaska's strategic position. Suddenly the world became smaller as areas once thought safely distant from potential enemies became vulnerable. Nowhere was this more evident than in the Pacific, whose countless islands became potential advanced air bases.

A History of Alaska, Volume I: From Old and New Frontiers to the Changing Strategic Balance

Author: 

Nielson, Jonathan M., Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara

Credentials: 

Author of American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919

As a unique, distant geographical region of the United States, Alaska has evolved from military insignificance to high strategic priority in the 142 years since its purchase from Russia in 1867. The reasons for this dramatic shift derive from a correlation of geography, foreign policy, domestic politics, and military technology.
