The conquering Jew

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
Author John Foster Fraser, a Briton, states that his work is written from neither a pro- nor anti-Semitic viewpoint. (p. 1). He emphasizes the Jews of Europe and the USA. This work describes the many Jewish successes in so many endeavors. [My review is based on the original 1915 edition.] >>more...

Jews and Revolution in Nineteenth-Century Russia (Paperback)

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The Jewish revolutionary activity, as discussed in this book, centered on revolutionary Populism. That based on Marxism was not to emerge until the 1890’s. (p. xii).

Interestingly, the anarchist Bakunin opposed the Jewish revolutionaries. He saw them as purveyors of “bourgeois socialism”, and followers of “German Jews”. (p. 25). >>more...

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The setting of this work is the town of Kamenets (Kamyenyets, Kamieniec), which is located not far south of the famous Bialowieza Forest. Because there is so much information presented, I divide my review into specialized topics, and emphasize those of broader relevance to Jewish-Polish relations. >>more...

Poland and the Polish Question: Impressions and Afterthoughts

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The reviewer was a Briton (p. 135), and her work was inspired by her visit to Poland in 1913. (p. 7). My review is based on the original 1915 edition. This work provides a comprehensive survey of Polish history up to that time, and includes a moderate amount of material on Polish culture. Author Ninian Hill is not sympathetic to the cause of Polish independence. She suggests that the best that Poles can hope for is being united into one geographic unit, and with autonomy, under one of the Partitioning powers. [How wrong she was!] >>more...

This book is written to counter the “modernist” interpretation of nations as exemplified by Eric Hobsbawm, Benedict Anderson, and Ernest Geller. The author begins with medieval Europe.

Defamation of the POles

Friday, July 15, 2016
Although 25 years now (2014) have passed since this book was published, it remains relevant. This owes to the fact that SHOAH is still widely used, and because the same anti-Polish themes of Lanzmann are being repeated by neo-Stalinists such as Jan T. Gross. The author himself was a victim of the Holocaust (in the non-Judeocentric sense). He was a prisoner in German penal camps, and was imprisoned and tortured by the Gestapo. (p. 6).

Geman thoughts, german superiority,nasism German war domination German conquest aand culture

Friday, July 15, 2016
This 1917 work has numerous quotations from leading Germans. It is profusely indexed, giving the source of the quote and a brief biographical blurb about every person quoted. Major themes in this work include German expansionism, the pursuit of war as a legitimate policy, the will to power, and related concepts. The informed reader will probably be struck as to how many of the ideas presented in this century-old book are now fulfilled in terms of German hegemony over Europe through the modern European Union.
