本书搜集了作者谢选骏先生本世纪911惨案以来发表的有关Ê... More >34;斯兰教的42篇文章。作者指出,伊斯兰教自从第二期中国文明的唐朝以后,就一拨一拨渗透中国,元明清以来给中国社会造成持续动乱。但是华人却对伊斯兰教很少了解,结果处处被动,步步蚕食,国内遍布伊斯兰教独立据点,不仅造成连绵不断的冲突,而且酝酿新的冲突。因此,需要了解伊斯兰、反思其历史,知道可否和平共处。 Synopsis: This book anthologizes 42 articles on Islam written by Mr. Xie Xuanjun since the 911 terrorist attacks in this century. The author points out that Islam spread to China with its permeability, one spell after another, since the Tang Dynasty during the second phase of the Chinese civilization, and caused incessant unrests in the country since the Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties. And the Chinese, knowing little about Islam, have been very passive all along, and Islam, nibbled the country step after step, its strongholds encroaching upon the whole of China, causing a succession of conflicts and fermenting new ones. People need to, therefore, know Islam for what it is, ponder over its history and decide for themselves whether it is possible to co-exist with Islam.< Less

Anti-Judaism in the Old Testament 《旧约圣经》中的“反犹主义” By Xuanjun Xie

More >判并非《新约圣经》开始的,而是贯穿了《旧约圣经》的始终。本书从《旧约圣经》各个部分摘录了310个段落,来证明“反犹主义”确为《旧约圣经》的主题之一。其中有些是明显的,有些并非显明,但联系上下文思索一下就不难发现:上帝对选民的要求非常严厉,而且处罚起来毫不留情。可悲的是,作为选民的犹太人先祖,常常辜负了上帝委托。 Synopsis: An all-round reading of the Old Testament would make it clear that anti-Judaism does not begin with the New Testament, but rather prevalent throughout the Old Testament. The present book by Mr Xie Xuanjun has taken 310 paragraphs from the Old Testament-- all going to show that anti-Judaism is really one of the theses of the Old Testament. Anti-Judaism in evident in some of the paragraphs, while less so in others, but what could be inferred from the context is that God is strict to the followers and is far from lenient in meting out punishments. What is sad is that the forefathers of Jews, as followers of God, have often failed to live up to the authority of God.< Less

The writing of Minos. The Phaistos disk and Cretan hieroglyphs, by Ippolito Marmai, italian researcher about Minoan writings. The Phaistos disk is fundamental as it happens to be the oldest European... More > literary expression. It sends us a message from the abysm of time at the dawn of Western culture and draws a line between a before and an after - between prehistory and history. Rediscovering this "Ariadne's thread" to understand the meaning of what it transmits is therefore an inescapable historico-cultural and scientific necessity. This eclectic, interdisciplinary approach has produced unexpected results thanks to the constant verification in the field of the available data. The author's twenty years of research into the Paistos Disc and on the Cretan hieroglyphic script now offers a unique and completely new interpretation of a puzzle that Minoan scholars have being working on for over a century.< Less

eBook (ePub): $6.94
(1 Ratings)
The third book in the trilogy analyzes the origins of Stalin's Plan. The author proves that Collectivization, Industrialization and the Gulag were elements of the early stage of Stalin's Plan, aimed... More > at creating a war machine to conquer the world. From the very beginning, Stalin’s industrialization was not carried out with a defensive war in mind, but a future aggressive world war which would follow the path dictated by Stalin's Plan. And this was the exact path that the war did subsequently follow. This book gives an answer as to why Stalin started the Great Terror of 1937-1938. It was the starting point of a Great Game intended to unleash the Second World War. The final part analyzes the period, which began with the Battle of Stalingrad and ended with the creation of new communist states and the expansion of the communist empire. And this was Stalin’s true objective.< Less
