♥ Book Title : Chelmno
☯ Full Synopsis : "The world's premier Revisionist scholar, Carlo Mattogno, focuses his microscope on Chelmno, the infamous German-run "death camp" located in Poland. It was here that huge masses of Jewish prisoners were rounded up and mercilessly gassed in so-called "gas vans" or shot (claims vary from 10,000 to 1.3 million victims). Or so say the court historians, most of whom have never set foot near the remains of the camp. Mattogno, however, has examined reams of wartime documents and conducted on-site investigations at the Chelmno camp and in the neighboring countryside. The resulting book challenges the conventional account of what went on inside Chelmno. Mattogno covers the subject from every angle, undermining the orthodox claims about the camp with an overwhelming body of evidence. Eyewitness statements, gas wagons as extermination weapons, forensics reports, coroners' reports, archeological excavations, the crematoria, building plans, official U.S. reports, German documents, evacuation efforts-all come under Mattogno's scrutiny. Here are the uncensored facts about Chelmno, not the propaganda. This is a complementary volume to Santiago Alvarez's book on The Gas Vans. Both books were edited in parallel to make sure they are consistent with each other and are not repetitive. Second, slightly revised edition of 2017."Article| Carlo Mattogno| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Jews in Siedlce 1850-1945
☯ Full Synopsis : "This is the translation of ydzi w Siedlcach 1850-1945 by Edward Kopowka from Polish into English. The town of Siedlce is in Warsaw province in central-eastern Poland, about 55 miles east of Warsaw. A Jewish presence in Siedlce is attested since the mid-16th century. Just prior to World War II, it had a Jewish population of around 15,000. About 10,000 Jews were deported to Treblinka in August 1942; the remainder of the Jewish community was liquidated in November 1942. This 452-page book chronicles the life of the Jewish community of Siedlce from the mid-19th century through its destruction during the Holocaust. Dr. Edward Kopowka (b. 1963) is a writer, historian, and educator. He holds a Ph.D. degree from the Faculty of History of the Podlasie Academy in Siedlce and is Senior Curator of the Museum of Struggle and Martyrdom in Treblinka.

♥ Book Title : Undercover Reporting
☯ Full Synopsis : "In her provocative book, Brooke Kroeger argues for a reconsideration of the place of oft-maligned journalistic practices. While it may seem paradoxical, much of the valuable journalism in the past century and a half has emerged from undercover investigations that employed subterfuge or deception to expose wrong. Kroeger asserts that undercover work is not a separate world, but rather it embodies a central discipline of good reporting—the ability to extract significant information or to create indelible, real-time descriptions of hard-to-penetrate institutions or social situations that deserve the public’s attention. Together with a companion website that gathers some of the best investigative work of the past century, Undercover Reporting serves as a rallying call for an endangered aspect of the journalistic endeavor."Article| Brooke Kroeger| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Science, History and Social Activism
☯ Full Synopsis : ""To earn a degree, every doctoral candidate should go out to Harvard Square, find an audience, and explain his [or her] dissertation". Everett Mendelsohn's worldly advice to successive generations of students, whether apocryphal or real, has for over forty years spoken both to the essence of his scholarship, and to the role of the scholar. Possibly no one has done more to establish the history of the life sciences as a recognized university discipline in the United States, and to inspire a critical concern for the ways in which science and technology operate as central features of Western society. This book is both an act of homage and of commemoration to Professor Mendelsohn on his 70th birthday. As befits its subject, the work it presents is original, comparative, wide-ranging, and new. Since 1960, Everett Mendelsohn has been identified with Harvard Univer sity, and with its Department of the History of Science. Those that know him as a teacher, will also know him as a scholar. In 1968, he began- and after 30 years, has just bequeathed to others - the editorship of the Journal of the History of Biology, among the earliest and one of the most important publications in its field. At the same time, he has been a pioneer in the social history and sociology of science. He has formed particularly close working relationships with colleagues in Sweden and Germany - as witnessed by his editorial presence in the Sociology of Science Yearbook."Article| Garland E.

♥ Book Title : Emergence and Embodiment
☯ Full Synopsis : "Emerging in the 1940s, the first cybernetics—the study of communication and control systems—was mainstreamed under the names artificial intelligence and computer science and taken up by the social sciences, the humanities, and the creative arts. In Emergence and Embodiment, Bruce Clarke and Mark B. N. Hansen focus on cybernetic developments that stem from the second-order turn in the 1970s, when the cyberneticist Heinz von Foerster catalyzed new thinking about the cognitive implications of self-referential systems. The crucial shift he inspired was from first-order cybernetics’ attention to homeostasis as a mode of autonomous self-regulation in mechanical and informatic systems, to second-order concepts of self-organization and autopoiesis in embodied and metabiotic systems. The collection opens with an interview with von Foerster and then traces the lines of neocybernetic thought that have followed from his work. In response to the apparent dissolution of boundaries at work in the contemporary technosciences of emergence, neocybernetics observes that cognitive systems are operationally bounded, semi-autonomous entities coupled with their environments and other systems. Second-order systems theory stresses the recursive complexities of observation, mediation, and communication. Focused on the neocybernetic contributions of von Foerster, Francisco Varela, and Niklas Luhmann, this collection advances theoretical debates about the cultural, philosophical, and literary uses of their ideas. In addition to the interview with von Foerster, Emergence and Embodiment includes essays by Varela and Luhmann. It engages with Humberto Maturana’s and Varela’s creation of the concept of autopoiesis, Varela’s later work on neurophenomenology, and Luhmann’s adaptations of autopoiesis to social systems theory. Taken together, these essays illuminate the shared commitments uniting the broader discourse of neocybernetics. Contributors. Linda Brigham, Bruce Clarke, Mark B. N. Hansen, Edgar Landgraf, Ira Livingston, Niklas Luhmann, Hans-Georg Moeller, John Protevi, Michael Schiltz, Evan Thompson, Francisco J. Varela, Cary Wolfe"Article| Bruce Clarke| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Fathers, Sons, and the Holy Ghosts of Baseball
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Time often slows and frequently even stops in the small town of Cottage Park, Iowa. In fact, time is best measured not by the hands of a clock but by the innings in a baseball game. Praying and playing baseball are two of the town's primary activites. Actually, they are one in the same in a town where baseball is a religion. Still, time does eventually flow on. Much like the Des Moines River just outside Cottage Park, time also leads to Des Moines, the site of the 1974 Iowa high school baseball tournament. Cottage Park's Holy Trinity High School has never won the Finals, as they are known. The team's three elderly coaches vow to at last anoint themselves Finals champions before they retire in their final season. For the players, the road to the Finals is a confirmation by fire -- a rite of passage before they must face adulthood looming before them. Fathers, sons, and the holy ghosts of baseball join together in the quest for the Finals. Along this yourney, young and old alike ultimately learn that you must sacrifice before you can gain and sometimes lose before you can win."--Back cover."Article| Tommy Murray| Statement ..."
