Maurice Muret

Maurice Muret’s The Greatness of Elites is a social history in the form of a shimmering tapestry of characters, both historical and fictional, who exemplify the elites of the cultured societies of Western Europe from ancient Greece to early twentieth-century Britain. Muret insists that elites constitute the essence of a great period of history. The Western genius, considered in its most noble creations, always contains something measured, tempered and balanced. It is not sufficient to have enlightened personages to direct the affairs of an entire nation in a particular direction. There must be an elite class that is capable of moulding society in its image.

The essential basis of the elites of Europe is identified by Muret as the humanist ideal, and it is this that constituted the strongest bulwark against the rising tide of the mass mentality emanating from Bolshevist Russia. In its glorification of the proletarian, Bolshevism presented an extreme danger to the traditionally elitist societies of Western Europe since such societies should be preserved in an organic manner by a social mobility that allows upward movement only in carefully graded stages. Only the Western ideal of humanism managed to offer an effective resistance to the alien threat that was the Communist state.

Claire Rae Randall

Transgender rights have recently come to the fore as a social issue and yet there are many who feel that this is being pushed too far and too fast. Claire Rae Randall is a transsexual woman who transitioned in the 1980s and is deeply concerned about this precipitous rate of change. Can it have a happy ending?

The War on Gender examines the progress of trans from a personal perspective, which has seen it come from being a marginal issue to one that is now having a disproportionate influence on social values.

William S. Lind & John Ewald

Reforging Excalibur is an exciting and unique proposal for restructuring America’s armed forces in order to better prepare us for Fourth-Generation warfare. After a withering critique of the bloat and waste of the Department of Defense and Pentagon’s “business as usual” attitude towards military spending, the authors disclose why this approach is unsustainable in terms of budget and combat readiness. In short, while our military is prepared to fight wars with other state militaries, it is woefully unprepared — psychologically and structurally — to succeed in Fourth-Generation warfare.
