Russell's History of Modern Europe Epitomised: Forming a Complete Text-book of Modern History, as Well as a Perfect Treasury of Facts, Dates, Important Events, the History of Kingdoms and States, and of the Lives of Celebrated Characters
When the terrible events of 9/11 struck New York City, I was astonished that there were such a large number of people in the Islamic countries of the Middle East who hate us, who danced in the streets and burned our flag shouting, “Death to America” when they heard the tragic news. The fact that our sovereign country was invaded, property destroyed, and thousands of innocent Americans were murdered by this sneak attack, this act of war stirred me to find out who did it and why.
When we learned that 11 university-educated Muslim men (4 with PHD’S) performed this evil act simply because their God, Allah, the God of Islam, told them to do it, was disturbing enough but when further study revealed the fundamental objective of these Muslim fanatics is to take over the world with their philosophies, energized me to learn more about Islam and write this book.

A set of transcendent essays on Celtic mysticism, describing Russells’ luminous excursions into the otherworld, including clairvoyant and prophetic visions, precognition of Gnostic concepts, past-life and astral journeys, and, always, heightened awareness of the beauty that pervades mundane reality. Russell describes encounters with what today we would call UFOs, and attempts to construct a private Kabala based on an intuitive reconstuction of a primal language and alphabet. Lastly, he attempts to put a mystical gloss on the primeval Celtic pagan deities. Chapters include The Slave Of The Lamp, The Many-Coloured Land, The Memory Of Earth, The Mingling Of Natures, The Language Of The Gods, The Celtic Imagination, Celtic Cosmogony, Ancient Intuitions, and Meditation.
Bertrand Russell’s classic primer on Western philosophy and the greatest thinkers of the past three millennia
With zest and rigor, Bertrand Russell applies twentieth-century thinking to age-old philosophy, from the works of Plato and Aristotle to those of René Descartes and John Locke. In The Problems of Philosophy, he reviews the Western canon’s most influential ideas and thought experiments, offering a comprehensive and enlightening text for curious and seasoned philosophy readers alike. Infused with Russell’s own observations and critiques, this study offers reviews of topics such as idealism, knowledge, and the natures of truth, reality, and existence. Including the author’s prominent thinking on knowledge by acquaintance versus knowledge by description, The Problems of Philosophy is a critical look at the major philosophical accomplishments spanning from classical Greece to the twentieth century.
