    Hitler's Shadow: Nazi War Criminals, U.S. Intelligence, and the Cold War
    Breitman, Richard; Goda, Norman J.W. (National Archives, 2010-12-10)
    The report is based on findings from newly-declassified decades-old Army and CIA records released under the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act of 1998 (the Act), these records were processed and reviewed by the National Archives-led Nazi War Crimes and Japanese Imperial Government Records Interagency Working Group (IWG), and written by IWG historians Richard Breitman and Norman J.W. Goda. The report highlights materials opened under the Act, in addition to records that were previously opened but had not been mined by historians and researchers, including records from the Office of Strategic Services (a CIA predecessor), dossiers of the Army Staff’s Intelligence Records of the Investigative Records Repository (IRR), State Department records, and files of the Navy Judge Advocate General. Hitler’s Shadow augments the IWG’s 2005 final report to Congress, U.S. Intelligence and the Nazis, and includes wartime and postwar US intelligence documents on the search for and prosecution of Nazi war criminals; Allied protection or use of Nazi war criminals; and the postwar activities of war criminals both in the United States and abroad.

    Back to East 29th Street : where fact and fiction revisit Kips Bay, N.Y.
    Sutton, Imre (Americo Publications, 2008)
    Manhattan's East Side has undergone nearly continuous urban changes over the past sixty years. Kips Bay, a very small district or neighborhood in New York's midtown, went from older tenements and lofts to a higher-rise complex of apartments and, along 1st Avenue, to Medical Row dominated by New York University and Bellevue Hospital. Virtually standing unchanged, except right on 29th Street, are the neighborhood religious centers and the author's grade school - P.S. 116. The author lived in the 300 block on 29th from 1934 to 1937, revisiting the neighborhood now and then. He later moved west. When he returned to the city for a year, he attended Seward Park High School in lower Manhattan. Having left Kips Bay so young - age 9 - he did not retain any friends. As a retired professor of geography, his neighborhood reconstruction and personal memoir have relied on new encounters, the Internet, and, at times, sheer luck. Of the several dozen photos, nearly half were downloaded from the New York City Public Library Digital Photo Gallery.

    Weighed in an Even Balance
    Bellesiles, Michael A. (Soft Skull Press, 2003)
    A defense of the author's scholarship in Arming America, in which he argued that few Americans owned firearms before the Civil War. Praised by reviewers, Arming America won the 2001 Bancroft Prize in American History and Diplomacy. Scholars criticized Bellesiles's research, however, and the Bancroft Prize was rescinded in 2002.

    Reason: traditional and contemporary, or Why should we still speak of reason at all?
    Welsch, Wolfgang (2003-12-01T20:32:22Z)
    Reason was once considered a higher order faculty than rationality. Beginning with Kant, rationality began to eclipse reason in significance. Today, we assume the existence of multiple rationalities, each with its own guiding principles. It is now time to resuscitate and redefine reason as a faculty that allows the individual to understand and live with the plurality of rationalities that characterize postmodern thought.

    Rationality and Reason Today
    Welsch, Wolfgang (2003-12-01T20:32:21Z)
    We live in a conceptual world of divergent paradigms that are entangled with each other. Rationality is therefore characterized by an extreme disorderliness. Only the faculty of reason is capable of looking across this diverse and disorderly condition. Reason does not privilege itself with respect to rationality, but relates to reationality on the basis of logical principles only.
