Anthropology

The Nordic Face
By J. Jamieson. A concise illustrated account of the origin and subsequent history of the Nordic peoples who have inhabited Scandinavia and Northern Europe since the Iron Age. Two maps show their original location and subsequent outward migrations into most other parts of Europe.  It derives its title from twenty-one illustrations of the classic, aquiline, Hallstatt “Nordic” facial features which, along with the famous light coloring of their hair, skin and eyes, have been a unique characteristic of North Europeans since prehistoric times. Softback, 36 pages.

Race in Ancient Egypt & the Old Testament
By A.H. Sayce and R. Peterson
Based on illustrations from the walls of Egyptian temples and tombs, this volume provides evidence of the physical appearance of the founders of the Egyptian and Biblical civilizations. Egyptians seem to have been acutely conscious of the physical characteristics that distinguished different peoples and races, and reflected this in their paintings. Modern readers may be surprised to learn that Libyans and the pre-Israelite inhabitants of Canaan were depicted as having fair hair and light eyes, while Semites were portrayed with black hair, dark eyes and prominent Armenoid noses. Blacks were also accurately portrayed, and the contrast that distinguished Nubians and sub-Saharan blacks from Egyptians is clearly revealed in numerous paintings such as those that portray Egyptian guards transporting Negro and Nubian slaves northwards down the Nile. Physical anthropology is also discussed in light of Biblical tradition.
Chapters include: Introduction - Race and History - The Study of Race - The Tenth Chapter of Genesis - The Egyptians - Cush - Nubia and Lands to the South - The Semites - The Peoples of Canaan - Beyond Palestine - North Africa and Europe - Conclusion
Based on the original by A.H. Sayce, edited and updated by R. Peterson.
Paperback, 144 pages. Illustrated with 43 figures; one map.

The Teuton and the Roman
By Charles Kingsley, edited and abridged by R. Peterson.
Contents include: The Forest Children; The Dying Empire; The Human Deluge; Latham's Germania; The Gothic Civilizer; Dietrich's End; The Nemesis of the Goths; Paulus Diaconus; The Laws of the Lombards.
Rome died and its empire collapsed when wealth corrupted the social system and continual warfare sapped the bloodstream of the original founders so that its armies had to be recruited from the diverse peoples and the nations it had conquered. The final death blow was delivered by Germanic Goths and Lombards, who had retained a sense of tribal loyalty in the procreative haven of their northern forests.
In this entertaining book the reader will be carried along by the dramatic style of the popular English writer and scholar Charles Kingsley. The text provides an enlightening account of early Germanic culture, while movingly describing the decadence of the latter-day Roman empire, and the revitalization of its Italian territories under the conquering Germanic nations that settled and repopulated Northern Italy.

Family, Kin and City-State: The Racial Underpinning of Ancient Greece and Rome
By Fustel de Coulanges, edited & revised by J. W. Jamieson.
It was not the sky gods but a consciousness of the importance of heredity and a devotion to the Family and Kindred that provided the basis of the social and political organization of ancient Greece and Rome.
Early Greek and Roman society was organized around the family and the kinship group. Citizenship was determined by birth, and aliens were not only barred from acquiring any political rights and the ownership of property but even from residence within the city except as slaves or bonded clients. Indeed, even the sky gods were personal to kinship groups, and of less significance than the Lars and Penates, the ancestral spirits and gods of the family hearth.
Chapters include: The Importance of the Lineage; The Sacred Hearth Fire; Marriage and Procreation; Kinship and Property; Moral Law; Gens, Phratry, Tribe and Nation; The Domestic Religion as the Moral Foundation of the Ancient City-State. SB, 108 pages.

The Origin of the English Nation
By Professor H. Munro Chadwick.
A highly detailed account of the origin of the Anglo-Saxons, Germans, Jutes and Danes with four maps showing the ancient homelands in Scandinavia, Germany and Britain early in the present era.
It has often been said that the English nation had sprung from diverse racial origns, but while it indeed represents an amalgam of Anglo-Saxons, Germans, Jutes and Danes, with related Celtic elements, these peoples were all closely related. Even the Celts are now believed to have separated from the Germanic speakers only a thousand years or so B.C., when they spread out in all directions from the common Germanic-Celtic homeland north of the European Alps.
Contents include: The Saxons, Angles and Jutes in Britain; The Angles and Saxons in Germany; The Danish Settlers; The Classification of the Ancient Germanii.

A gripping account of British life in the capital city of their Indian Empire, their treatment of the Indian population, and their own reaction to Indian culture - from 1689 when they founded Calcutta, until the early 20th century, when the capital of British India was moved from Bengal to New Delhi. This is a vivid pen picture which reveals the day-to-day life and epic adventures of the kind of people who made Europeans a dominant force in world history. Their attitudes to the native peoples and the rise of racial consciousness are described. First published in 1954, in Calcutta, India, and later reprinted in the USA.

Socioeconomic Systems of Russia since the 1850s By Ernest Raiklin Ph.D.

This heavily documented 732-page book, replete with charts and tables, is the first to provide a definitive account of socioeconomic trends in Russia stretching from Czarist times, through the various stages of Soviet rule, to the transitions taking place in the contemporary Post-Soviet era.

As such it will prove to be an invaluable guide and detailed resource for students of economics, sociology and politics alike, with an emphasis on facts and figures pertaining to socioeconomic systems and their development.

Following an Introductory Section explaining the basic analytical concepts, methods, and philosophical concepts, author Raiklin divides his epic study into major sections representing distinct historical periods, each of which are subdivided into a plenitude of chapters. These major groupings of topics are as follows:

  • The Pre-Soviet Socioeconomic System: The 1850s - November 1917
  • The First Stage in the Development of the Soviet Socioeconomic System: War Communism (1918 - 1921)
  • The Second Stage in the Development of the Soviet Socioeconomic System: The New Economic Policy (1921 - 1928)
  • The Last Stage in the Development of the Soviet Socioeconomic System: The Stalinist Model in Making (1928 - Late 1930s)
  • The Theoretical Framework of the Stalinist Model Revisited The Last Stage in the Development of the Soviet Socioeconomic System: The Stalinist Model in Operation (1940 - 1991)
  • The First Stage in the Development of the Post-Soviet Socioeconomic System (1991 -Present)
  • An Attempt to Anticipate the Future, or the Second Stage in the Development of the Post-Soviet Socioeconomic System

Race, Intelligence and Bias in Academe
By Professor Roger Pearson. Introduction by Hans Eysenck.
This book documents efforts in American academe and the media to suppress research into the important role played by race and heredity in determining intelligence and other vital human qualities. It presents scientific evidence of the significance of heredity, and details how well-known scholars have been intimidated from speaking the truth. It provides concrete evidence of media distortion and reveals the Marxist orientation of scholars who have persistently attempted to deny the importance of genetic differences in Humankind.

Contents include: Hans J. Eysenck: "Science and Racism"; Science and Heredity from Francis Galton and Karl Pearson to World War II); The Legacy of Marx, Mannheim and Lysenko; Scientific Luddites and Neo-Lysenkoists; The Anti-science Views of Gould, Lewontin, Kamin and Marxist Student Organizations; The Persecution of Scholars who Investigate Race Differences - Arthur Jensen of Berkeley, Nobel Laureate and co-inventor of the transistor, William Shockley, Guggenheim Fellow, J. Philippe Rushton, E. O Wilson, R. J. Herrnstein, M. Levin, L. Gottfredson and Seymour Itzkoff; The Bell Curve - Activist Lysenkoism in Academe, the Media and Public Policy; Conclusion - The Influence of Heredity on Human Personality as Confirmed by the findings of the Minnesota Twin and Adoption Research, and the Human Genome Project.

EVOLUTION AND GENETICS

The Pivot of Civilization
By Margaret Sanger. An epoch-making book by one of the pioneers of the feminist movement, and founder of Planned Parenthood. Formerly idealized by the left, but now repudiated by those who oppose birth control, Margaret Sanger has more recently been labeled a "racist" because of her interest in eugenics and her concern that “those least fit to carry on the race are reproducing more rapidly.” Sanger was also concerned that the ongoing Third World population explosion, evident even then, could destroy the future of humanity. This book was first published in 1922 and reprinted in 1997.

Ancient Eugenics
By A. G. Roper. A classic reprint. The Ancient Greeks and early Romans believed that all human qualities were rooted in heredity, and that the quality of national stock had to be preserved at all costs. In short, they had a more intelligent attitude concerning the importance of human breeding than most contemporary Western societies. CONTENTS include quotations about the importance of quality breeding from classical authors ranging from Homer, Lycurgus and Theognis, to Xenophon, Euripides, Plato, Socrates, Aristotle and Plutarch.

War and the Breed
By David Starr Jordan, former chancellor of Stanford University, who concluded that World War I was destroying the finest elements of European youth, eliminating them before they could pass on their genes to another generation – and thereby irreparably damaging the genetic quality of the population. His heart-wrenching text is illustrated with a selection of photographs of young officers killed in the First World War while he was actually writing his book, who left few or no children behind them. His work is prophetic in that the fiercely selective genetic losses of the finest and bravest in World War II added to the enormous losses in World War I. The loss of so many young and unmarried pilots and air crew, for example,  is clearly reflected in the lower caliber of the overall present-day population of most European countries, and has contributed to the decline of Europe into its current of economic and cultural decadence.

Heredity and Humanity: Race, Eugenics and Modern Science
By Professor Roger Pearson.
Race and heredity were accepted facts in Western science until Marxists and fellow travelers infiltrated Western academe and subverted objectivity on the subject. Yet notwithstanding the fact that contemporary scientists are influenced by fear that politically motivated criticism might affect their careers, and in some cases simply by the fear that their research might raise racial tensions, the evidence for inherited differences in both physical (as evidenced in sports) and mental abilities is now substantiated.
"Political correctness," a euphemism for politically motivated suppression of the truth, still seeks to obfuscate the findings of science, but must eventually lose its grip as scientific research, which began with twin studies, DNA, blood groups, and is now represented by the Human Genome project, increasingly reveals the significant role of heredity and distinctive descent groups on human affairs.
Contents: The Concept of Heredity in the Ancient World; The Discovery of Evolution - Eugenics and the Pioneers of Modern Science; Eugenicists as Conservationists; Race as a Nation-Building Ideal; Radical Egalitarianism Penetrates Academe; Egalitarianism Ascendant - Marxism Strengthens the Anti-Hereditarian Cult; Media and Academic Persecution of "Hereditarian" Scholars; Twin Studies, Blood Group Research and Modern Genetics; DNA Analysis and the Racial History of Man; Eugenics and Modern Medical Science; Genetics and the Future of Humankind.

Shockley on Eugenics and Race
Edited by Professor Roger Pearson.
Winner of the 1956 Nobel Prize as leader of the team that invented the transistor, Professor William Shockley of Stanford University was also a scientific researcher in the fields of intelligence and genetics.

Contents include a lengthy preface by renowned Berkeley psychologist Professor Arthur Jensen as well as an introduction by Roger Pearson; an account of Shockley's life history; and a series of Shockley's own papers including his suggestion that the U.S. might consider offering a cash bonus to any younger persons of low IQ who voluntarily agreed to sterilization. This "thinking exercise" suggested that volunteers might be offered a pecuniary award directly related to the extent to which their IQ fell below 100. This and twenty-two of Shockley's original articles on heredity, eugenics, and dysgenic trends in the U.S. — no longer available elsewhere — are reprinted in this remarkable volume.

Germanic Mythology
By Jakob Grimm, translated by Vivian Bird.
An analysis of the pre-Christian myths, legends and folk beliefs of the continental West German peoples. Unlike the North Germans of Iceland, much of whose heathen mythology survived in the Eddas and Sagas, the ancient religious beliefs of the continental Germanic peoples survived only in scattered fragments. Jacob Grimm was one of the two famous brothers Grimm who assiduously collected the only remaining bits and pieces of Germanic mythology and folklore that survived the coming of Christianity, and this is the only English translation ever made of his epic analysis of the spirit and character of Germanic heathendom, based on the materials he and his brother collected.
