History

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.

The Revelation of Art-Religion

Author: 

Knoll, Reinhold, Department of Sociology, University of Vienna; Kenneth Quandt, Ph.D. in Classics, University of California, Berkeley

Art’s original function in Christian Europe is exemplified by the way the Eastern Icon served as a window to the divine. After the Great Schism of 1054, several developments in Western Christianity separated art from church, cult, and religion. Art continued to evolve independently of the Roman Catholic Church through the Renaissance, with a continuous development of artistic style that culminated in the Baroque Totalism of
the eighteenth century.

The Luciferic Verses: The Daodejing and the Chinese Roots of Esoteric History

Author: 

Cunningham, Ph.D., Eric

Credentials: 

Professor of Philosophy, Gonzaga University

Eric Cunnigham’s exciting new book combines a new translation of the Chinese classic Daodejing with a synthetic interpretation of the Dao. It innovatively employs the interweaving perspectives of Anthroposophy and esoteric world history. Among the inspirations for this work’s unique reading of the verses of the Daodejing is the speculation of contemporary esoteric scholars that the Yellow Emperor of Chinese mytho-history was actually a human incarnation of the spirit known elsewhere as Lucifer.

More than 13,000 people lost their lives and many others suffered in other ways during the Maoist-led armed conflict that lasted for ten years (1996-2006) in Nepal. Many people are still missing and many more have been displaced. The lives of women in particular have been affected, with a heightened prevalence of gender-based violence during the armed conflict and post-conflict transition period. The warring sides used gendered strategies of the war wage war against each other and this book deals about the implications of such tactics.

Britain's Injurious Peace Games in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970

Author: 

Ignatus, Onianwa Oluchukwu, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Department of History, University of Ibadan (Nigeria)

On October 1, 1960, Nigeria gained her independence from the British colonial rule. On July 6, 1967, the country was engulfed in a civil war fought between the Federal Military Government of Nigeria, led by Major-General Yakubu Gowon, and the defunct Republic of Biafra, led by Lieutenant-Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu. As the former colonial power, and Nigeria’s closet partner in the Commonwealth and, indeed, in the Western world, the outbreak of the war in 1967 presented Britain with a painful dilemma.
