Travel Ruminations

Author: 

Hauptman, Robert

Credentials: 

Robert Hauptman is Professor Emeritus of Information Science at St. Cloud State University. His nearly 700 publications include 18 books (the 19th, The Desert Encyclopedia, is forthcoming in 2024) and cover innumerable topics. At 81, he still walks many miles almost every day and climbs mountains. He has stood on the highest point of 45 American states.

Travel Ruminations is a personal account of the author’s walking, hiking, and mountain climbing over a 75-year career in all 50 U.S. states and 38 countries, but it is more than a mere memoir. Interspersed are remarks on the ecological aspects of his environments and the devastation caused by human activity.

Turning the Tables: How the Third World Overthrew the West

Author: 

Hodder, Rupert

Credentials: 

Rupert Hodder was born in Nigeria and educated in England and Hong Kong. He has lived and worked for many years in various parts of Asia. He has spent the last decade as Professor and Associate Dean at the School of Economics at the Harbin Institute of Technology, Shenzhen, China, where he still teaches.

We are living through extraordinary times – a startling civilizational shift in which the tables are being turned on the West and all it stands for. The baby boomers tracked the beginning of this great historical arc, their children are watching it accelerate, and their grandchildren may witness its completion. The rise of the Third World is rooted in social transfers, welfare, and redistribution of wealth in the name of justice. The failing heart of the West is the market.

The Literary Career of W. B. Trites

Author: 

Rex, Richard

Credentials: 

Richard Rex retired from the University of Utah. He is the author of a collection of Chaucer essays titled The Sins of Madame Eglentyne, as well as Alice Muriel Williamson: The Secret History of an American-English Author and The Literary Career of W. B. Trites. He lives with his wife, Ines, on the Olympic Peninsula, in Port Angeles, Washington.

This book discusses the eight novels by American expatriate author W. B. Trites, who, although highly praised by such contemporaries H. G. Wells, Joseph Conrad, W. B. Maxwell, Max Beerbohm, L. P. Hartley, and Frank Harris, among others, remains curiously unknown today. His spare style, which pre-dated Hemingway’s by several decades, did not impress publishers accustomed to more expansive prose.

Civilization, Beyond Our Fall

Author: 

Itzkoff, Seymour W.

Credentials: 

Seymour W. Itzkoff is Professor Emeritus of Education at Smith College. His professional career began as a cellist in the Hartford Symphony while studying at the University of Hartford. The Korean War found him playing as a cellist in the U.S. Army Piano Trio in Washington D.C for President Harry S Truman at the White House and for General George Marshall at the Pentagon. Itzkoff’s developing interest in philosophy led him to enroll in doctoral studies at Columbia University. During this period, he taught at several public schools in New York and at Hunter and Lehman Colleges of the City University of New York (CUNY). He then joined the faculty of Smith College, where he taught for 35 years. His publications include 32 books in various academic fields with a major interest in human evolution and intelligence.

Civilization, Beyond Our Fall explores the realities behind the rise and fall of historic civilizational ideals, especially on the fate of the Western vision. The book begins with the rise, durability, and fall of the historic civilizational profiles of humankind. It continues with the decline of the West, which from our perspective began with World War I and has continued at a faster pace in the 21st century. Itzkoff’s prognosis for the next century or two is one of a dismal world of chaos, war, and deep pessimism throughout the world.

One Against All: Lenin and His Legacy

Author: 

Echeverran, Roberto

Credentials: 

Roberto Echeverran is a poet, novelist, essayist, and translator. He was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, where he studied philosophy and law. He then pursued graduate studies in philosophy at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany and received his Ph.D. at the University of Paris VIII. Echevarren taught at the University of London before a twenty-year career teaching at New York University. He has published five novels, notably his last three short novels combined under the title Archipiélago (Archipelago). He was recently awarded the 2021 Amado Alonso International Prize of Literary Criticism for his book El pensamiento chino (Chinese Thought).

A century on, scholars can achieve a certain balance in views of what Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin’s government meant for Russia and for the world. Roberto Echaverren synthesizes all that we know about Lenin and his government by taking data from new and original sources. With auxiliary chapters on the evolution of land tenancy in Russia, the collectivization of land under Stalin, and the suppression of sexual minorities under Soviet rule, this book adds breadth and scope to our understanding of Lenin’s government and legacy.

University, in Turkey. She graduated from English Language and Literature Department
at Gaziantep University in 2000 and received her masters and doctoral degrees at
Hacettepe University.

In the context of a diversified and pluralistic arena of contemporary literature embodying
previously marginalized voices of region, ethnicity, gender, and class, black poets living
in Britain developed a distinct branch of contemporary poetry. Having emerged from a
struggle to give voice to marginalized groups in Britain, the poetry of Linton Kwesi
Johnson, David Dabydeen, and Fred D’Aguiar helped define national identity and
explored racial oppression. Motivated by a sense of responsibility towards their

Carl vs. Karl: Jung and Marx, Two Icons for our Age

Author: 

Driscoll, James P., Ph.D.

Credentials: 

A scholar of Renaissance drama and Jungian psychology, James P. Driscoll, Ph.D., explores psychological approaches to the arts, religion, and public philosophy. He has written seven previous books: Identity in Shakespearean Drama, The Unfolding God of Jung and Milton, Shakespeare and Jung: The God in Time, Shakespeare’s Identities, How AIDS Activists Challenged America, Jung’s Cartography of the Psyche, and The Devil and Dr. Fauci. Driscoll has long applied his academic skills and original thinking to the LGBT, HIV, and patient rights causes. During the 1990s, he led the AIDS activist movement for FDA reform. Since then, he has distinguished himself with trenchant criticisms of oppressive bureaucracies and his work implementing critical reforms.

By drawing on the opposing ideas of Carl Jung and Karl Marx, James Driscoll’s develops fresh perspectives on urgent contemporary problems. Jung and Marx as thinkers, Driscoll contends, carry the projections of archetypal complexes that go back to the hostile Old Testament brothers Cain and Abel, whose enduring tensions shape our postmodern era.
