The inside account of George Lincoln Rockwell’s bizarre life.
Author William Schmaltz brings us in on Nazi planning and strategy sessions, the dangerous personnel conflicts among the stormtroopers, the riots, pickets, and chaos created by the American Nazi Party.
In-depth analysis of the strange relationship between Rockwell and the Black Muslims of Elijah Muhammad and Malcolm X, the rationale behind Rockwell’s repeated attacks on Martin Luther King Jr., and how Rockwell created the Holocaust Denial and White Power movements and was the hottest speakers on the campus lecture circuit.
Today, more than forty years after his assassination, Rockwell’s legacy continues to spread among America’s fringe groups.
Shanghai, China, December 31, 1940: The wild, wicked, and bizarre International Settlement is ready to celebrate its final New Year under the control of white men. By the following year, it will be in Japanese hands, and its white ‘masters’ will be their prisoners. The author is invited to the mysterious Soviet Club, about which few ‘Shanghai-landers’ know anything. At that date, the Soviet Union is the most widely hated country in the world and Soviet citizens in Shanghai are pariahs. Surprisingly, the guests of honor are the Nazi German leaders in the Settlement and a surprise guest, Hitler’s World War I officer-Captain Fritz Weideman, is expected to land from South America to assert new German authority in China over the objections of her Axis ally Japan. Weideman is blocked by British Intelligence and is a no-show, but Communist Russians and Nazi Germans party until dawn.
Shanghai puts on a saturnalia unique even in its history with record alcohol sales and nightclub attendance while a record 500 homeless beggars freeze in the streets.
Critical Thinking: The Antidote for Faith, is not just food for thought; it is a true intellectual feast. Throughout the book, Wayne Bartz’s revealing stories add to the long history of foolishness and harm done in the name of religion. Taken together, these examples of supernatural nonsense are a powerful, and often hilarious, indictment of blind faith. Those who have doubts about religion will delight in Bartz’s sharp replies to Believers. With relish, he skewers televangelists, sanctimonious politicians, medical frauds, and self-appointed gurus. Bartz also offers well-honed arguments that rationalists can used to cut throught the fog of magical thinking. In a series of steps summarized by the acronym CRITIC, he shows how critical thinking can be used to evaluate a wide variety of dubious claims. This is a book for people who enjoy spirited inquiry. Although Believers may be unmoved by its arguments and anecdotes, they will have to work hard to defend and retain their faith. Readers who are inclined to question religion will find a worthy ally and an intellectual journey well worth taking.
Behind all existence there is the sense or need for purpose. It is the reason behind our doing and being. Every living thing, including human beings have a purpose. At the lowest level of existence the purpose is simple to live, to continue to live and to continue the line of life that is of their existence. Humans cannot escape those basic purposes, but because we have a mind and have come to believe we are something more than animals, we have what we consider to be greater purposes, a reason to exist beyond merely living. We have come to believe (been taught to believe) there is something more for us than simple existing, that we have a greater purpose than eating, breathing, procreating…
The fact is we cannot escape purpose. Too often, however, we come by purpose through the wishes and will of others, living lives that others believe is the way. Long before we have a mental process that can work for itself, we have already been taught how things should be and because of that our purpose is the creation of others. Thus, we live lives as others want us to live. Do things the way others do, have the same reasons for doing them because of being taught that was the way to do. In other words we live the sad state of living others purpose and not our own.
Self-purpose takes us beyond what others want and into a new, and perhaps frightening realm of actually doing what you want to do.
One dark night, when movies were black and white, old Pete Morell was brutally murdered in the back room of the Hollywood Cafe by two men looking for hidden treasure. The treasure was not found. The killers were not caught. The case was closed. A half-century later the past finally catches up with the present.
In The Hollywood Cafe, Richard Dokey again stakes his claim to that part of California he knows so well, the small town life along Highway 99, which runs the length of the Golden State. On the road, however, he finds deeper truths about a world we have lost and the world we have become.

Born on the first day of the Great Depression, Randy Davies absorbs the values of small-town Texas life in a time and place when the willingness to do hard and unpleasant work is a measure of a man’s worth.
Later, those values fight for dominance when he is tempted to pursue a chancy life as an opera and concert singer and to marry a delightful but childlike girl whom he meets while studying voice in Bavaria.
John Sohn’s KOREAN GAKUHEI is a heart-wrenching memoir of his youthful years, wholly surrendered by force to the shameless directives of Japan’s militarists in 1944-45. For Sohn, a young, righteous intellectual of Korea, to serve as a “Gakuhei” for the relentless Japanese war-mongers occupying his country, was not merely a hellish expedition but also an exasperating experience.
Assigned to a Japanese anti-aircraft artillery unit, Sohn describes the large-scale US Air Force bombings over Kyushu and Tokyo during the latter phase of the World War II in the Pacific. Witnessing the terrifying spectacles of B-29 bombings, the Korean youth-soldier makes pathetic lament over the stupidity of deranged Japanese rulers whose arrogance and insensitivity kept them from seeing the vastly superior military strength of their adversary. This book is a must for the readership of rising generations of Japan and Korea.
This memoir describes the social aspects of a young boy and his family growing up in an America where the shade of your skin can determine your fate and where the one-drop rule of Black blood you may hold within your lineage has far-reaching ramifications.
