Review: “A Killing Art” – By Alex Gillis

Going over some research on Japan and South Korea I found a review that I originally published in May of 2011. It’s a pretty wild true history and I think it’s worth taking another look at. “A Killing Art” by […]

  • Review: “The Socratic Method” – By Farnsworth

One such resource is the new book “States Of Emergency” by a Dutch professor named Kees Van Der Pijl. […]
  • The Civil War In The United States – By Marx & Engels
    I should start by saying that this is the first I have read of Marx, and honestly I haven’t studied deep into the American Civil War, so this book was very interesting to me. The book consists of written exchanges between Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, with a few others. It also includes passages from […]
