Menace in Europe. Why the Continent's Crisis Is America's, Too
(New York: Crown Forum, 2006) 9781400097685. . 8vo; original papered boards, lettered in silver gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. (xii) + 271, incl. index. Very good condition. "Europe, the charming continent of windmills and gondolas. But lately, Europe has become the continent of endless strikes and demonstrations, bombs on the trains and subways, radical Islamic cells in every city, and ghettos so hopeless and violent even the police won't enter them. In Spain, a terrorist attack prompts instant capitulation to the terrorists' demands. In France, the suburbs go up in flames every night. In Holland, politicians and artists are murdered for speaking frankly about Islamic immigration. This isn't the Europe we thought we knew. What's going on over there? Traveling overland from London to Istanbul, journalist Claire Berlinski shows why the Continent has lately appeared so bewildering - and often so thoroughly obnoxious - to Americans... Berlinski provocatively demonstrates that Europe's political and cultural crisis mirrors its profound moral and spiritual crisis. But this is not just Europe's problem. Menace in Europe makes clear that the spiritual void at the heart of Europe is ultimately our problem too. And America will pay a terrible price if we continue to ignore it.".

Fascisme. Die Problematiek Van Verklaringsvariante. Fascisme en Suid-Afrika
(Bloemfontein: University of the Orange Free State, 1982). . 297 x 210 mm; cloth-backed printed green card wrappers; pp. (vi) + iv + 204. Earlier owner's name signed on title page. Very good condition. Afrikaans text. An earlier version of this work, issued in 1978, was entitlted 'Die problematiek van fascisme in die lig van verklaringsvariante'. Professor J. C. Moll is currently employed in the Unit for Language Facilitation and Empowerment at the University of the Free State. As the present work reveals, he has a considerable grasp of Fascism and right-wing movements. Research for the study was conducted at the Institute for Historical Research at the University of London, The Wiener Library and Institute of Contemporary History, The Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Deutsches Historisches Institut, the Institut für Zeitgeschichte, the Bibliothéque de Documentation Internationale Contemporaine, the London University Library, the British Library Reference Division of the British Museum, and Rheinischen Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität. "Hierdie studiestuk is die resultaat van 'n belangstelling in die problematiek van Fascisme wat oor baie jare strek en begin het met 'n nagraadse kursus oor die moderne Europese geskiedenis. Dit was eintlik die prikkelende vrae en debatte gedurende seminaarbesprekings wat 'n mens gedwing het om oor die verklaringsvariante van Fascisme te besin in 'n poging om die standpuntinname en a prioreë van vakwetenskaplikes in die soeke na die waarheid bloot te lê en te verreken. … Die slothoofstuk oor Fascisme in Suid-Afrika is 'n voorlopige en onvolledige verkenning vanweë die groot omvang van die tema wat daarin behandel word.".
