This book is an excellent short introduction to programming in R, explains clearly several of the key concepts that are unlike 'normal' languages - eg data frames. However, don't expect any discussion of statistics - that's not what this book is about.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gift to Man from an Aryan Saint, 25 Aug 2013
This review is from: And Time Rolls on (Paperback)
There are few writers I have come across whose writing is so passionate, sincere and endearing as Devi's.

Nearly all the ideas here are contained in her previous books, however here we get to read her view on many contemporary developments and several leading figures in the post-ww2 neo-Nazi movements. This includes John Tyndall, the founder of the BNP. This organisation is now effectively outlawed in the Uk for 'thought crime' reasons. She also talks about the Dior heiress, a famous Nazi sympathiser and also Rockwell who lead the American Nazi movement.

Also fascinating is to read her account of how her anti-Jewish feelings developed and also her anti-liberal. Both were innate. We shouldn't forget that she was a genius. Her level of recollection of history and reasoning is astonishing for an old women of poor health, which she was at the time this interview took place. Her anti-jewish sentiment began when she read the Bible as a small child - she was appalled at Jewish behaviour in the old testament. Her hatred of liberalism was also instinctive in childhood, the tenets of liberalism were printed on the wall in her French school. She was instinctively disgusted by the anti-life and anti-elitism that was contained. Her hatred of animal cruelty is also linked to her anti-Christian feelings, which she talks about.

Note Devi states quite clearly that she does not hate Jews but that they should live separately from Aryans. In this way I wonder what she would of thought of Israel, she doesn't mention it. Quite telling I suspect. She also categorises Arabs as being white. Genetically this is reasonable, she also says the same of Jews.

Also obvious is that her steadfast refusal to conform also emerged as a child. She frequently got into a lot of trouble as a child, exemplified by her school period outbursts against liberalism and also Christianity. I also like what she says about humans - rather poor two legged mammals. She has a very low view of them and rightly says that he who does not think has no right be called a Man - going back to the Greek definition.

There is also exposure in this book for the horrific atrocities committed by the Czechs against ethnic-Germans. After reading what they did, you too will want to obliterate Prague from the map as she suggests.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit boring and anti-Semitic, the latter being considered a valid view back then, 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like others have mentioned, what is all the fuss about with this book?

The only interesting elements are mention of Stoddard's book 'The rising tide of colour' which is far more interesting and also the obvious anti-Semitism. The main crook, indeed the brains behind the corruption of capatalism is the Jewish character. I notice the film glossed over that casting an Indian instead of a Jew. In addition they softened down the quotes from Stoddard's book.

This book is also a damning of Americanism. Like all great American writers, they have so few, they always attack the core of Americanism - classical liberalism. It is an attack on the liberal-right of the entire American civilisation.

The book itself was so mediocre that despite it being so short I could only get half way through it. I then watched the recent film and this compelled me to read the second half.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration for a European warrior caste!, 3 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always thought it was strange that if World War I so very terrible why did these men continue fighting in it? If everyone felt as Remarque does in 'All Quiet on the Western front' and if they agreed with the presentation of the war as it is now - as a pointless mutual horrid slaughter yard, surely they would have abruptly all downed weapons on mass? I find it hard to believe they would have carried on fighting from shear fear of punishment alone. This book has the answer. The vast majority of men were like Juenger to some extent! They embraced the warrior ethic and love of their homelands. These were men of our European warrior class drawn from all classes. Officer and lowly private fought with equal bravely, valour and honour. In the 21st century, in the age of utter decay, the post-modern European man gets a glimpse into a bygone era when men of his race were warriors. Superior men.

This book is more extreme than any horror film or violent hollywood action thriller. It is simply unbelievable. But this book is fact! This is what happened between European brothers less than 1 century ago and only just out of living memory. Juenger was a real life superman and super-hero. I couldn't put this book down.

Throughout the book there is much mention of respect toward the British. This was the last gentlemen's war at least in conduct if not in quantity of death. Juenger does not speak in favour or against WW1 except on occasion when saying what a waste to kill equal Englishmen. Juenger fought for the sake of fighting and not for any ideology, as is the warrior ethic.

European man must reach into books like this to rediscover his soul if he wishes to survive this century.

From a purely literature viewpoint the writing is razor sharp. Words are used where necessary and not more. I have noticed this is a common trend of European literature masterpieces like this. Read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars must read for educated pro-Europeans, 16 July 2012
This book gives an introductory education on the ideological foundations of the European New Right. Sunic gives his analysis of what this European life saving movement or rather resurrection stands for. The second half is a textbook of the NR giving a detailed description, in the form of a direct translation, of the NR manifesto. Here is stated who the enemy is and why, and what we propose in its replacement.

Note that the ENR is still very active but that there is also another parallel movement led by Faye which he terms ArcheoFuturism. Faye's books go hand in hand with the more Benoit originated texts like this.

I think its fair to say that without the intellectual groudwork put in by the ENR in France and the Grece think tank then movements like the Front National wouldn't have been successful, for example recently polling 20-30% in the French election.

The British need to be more like their European cousins if they wish to survive the demographic assault on their homelands.

There is no racism or anti-Semitism in this book. It is anti-immigration and pro-European. The ENR has nothing to do with silly outdated Nazi worship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perdue's well known masterpiece!, 27 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lee (Paperback)
As with all Perdue's work we have here fine Western literature, pure art. The prose flows as a constant stream of rich superior language, the best American or should I say Southern literature you're going to come across this side of the 1960s. Decadents and liberals will be appalled by this book. Indeed, that's what the book is about. It's about an appalled elderly man returning to his home town in the South witnessing the decay he finds. Its set around the 1980s which is just about in my living memory, however any traditionalist pro-European will enjoy the book, for it attacks many of our enemies. Mainly it attacks the spiritual and genetic dysgenic affect of Liberalism and Americanism. His descriptions of and contempt toward the morons we have bred in our society is superlative, the vitriol dripping off each page in utter disgust. Like Lee I feel like clobbering half these people to death, and so Lee does just that! Also, like Lee I hope for a future with fewer people getting finer. The end is poignant and a little sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars modern western lit at its best!!!!, 29 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sons and Lovers (Kindle Edition)
This book kept me sane on my morning London tube commute for a few months. The poetic beautiful prose contrasted starkly with the stinking human cattle.

At at least 5 points throughout this book I was almost reduced to tears such was the emotional depths touched by Lawrence.

Any heterosexual vaguely healthy western man who had or has a mother will enjoy and cherish this book. Younger men in particular will identify with the main character Paul, who takes up most of the second half of this book. The book is essentially about the fundamental relationship between western man and women, set in the modern era. The post-modern appreciation, being a sicker period, will perhaps mean a reduction in appreciation. Today many families in the decaying west feature only 1 parent. The relationship between the mother and father, although abusive in a modern fashion here, is probably alien to a vast class of western youth who have no father figure whatsoever. However, it is unlikely such degenerates would ever pick up the book or any book for that matter.

From a radical conservative perspective the book gives no credence to concepts of oppression for the working class. In fact, the working class man is portrayed as being in control of this destiny as evinced by Paul himself. Superiority in this book is shown to be not distinguished by class but blood, something Lawrence believed in as I do. Paul is no working class slave and toward the end there is mention of lowly servants in the Morell household.

I noticed from other peoples reviews that apparently much of the sexually explicit descriptions were edited out due to the sensibilities of the time. One could tell these were missing as though half a narrative left out, half an operatic climax removed. Lawrence clearly is building up to these climax scenes between fresh manly and female youth. Any red blooded male would appreciate all these descriptions of building up and feelings toward women. Perhaps they are fresher as a young man but I doubt they diminish that much with age.

As other have mentioned, the Freudian side of analysis is available if you wish. Also the Jungian view. Doubtless there are whole books analyzing this book from those perspectives. The last couple of chapters give a raw description of grief evoked depression.

My last comment is that I wish I were given this book to read as a 16ryr old GCSE student instead of being force fed a crude left wing liberal anti-racism yarn called `To Kill a mokingbird'. This book is healthy modern western literature at its best.


Ride the Tiger: A Survival Manual for the Aristocrats of the Soul

5.0 out of 5 stars No book is more radical!, 21 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As radical a book as could possibly be imagined by the most 'right wing' philosopher to ever live. A man Jonathan Bowden says is the only man ever to criticise the SS for being too 'soft'. Slim in pages given the vast subject domain, Evola deals with his world view in relation to every aspect of the sick world we now live and how the differentiated man might function in it. The core idea is 'ride the tiger' - do not fight the forces of decay, ride them out from a commanding advantageous position. Despite being written in the 60s the forces of decay he highlights are all even more prevalent and obvious today than they were when he wrote this or his earlier Magnus Opus 'Revolt against the modern World'.

I cannot say I have understood every point he makes, but the vast majority is well communicated on first reading. As for the rest, one needs to study what is being said rather than simply read as one would a novel. Evola also refers a lot to other works of his, he does not want to repeat himself. I would also say that Evola seems to communicate on two levels; the literal meaning of the text and also something else. There seems to be a deeper communication going on, something that seeps into your soul as you speed through the pages.

All ideas are dealt with extremely succinctly. In one small chapter Evola succeeds in demolishing my already barely standing belief in modern science. There is a great deal of truth in his attack on modern physics and its limitations. He attacks the modern mathematical physics in particular. He is right that science cannot deal with anything that cannot be mathematicized.

Evola also deals with every other sickness imaginable. Existentialism, 'Second religiosity', Communism, Liberalism, Freudism, capitalism, mass travel, relations between the sexes, feminism, modern music, drug and alcohol use etc etc. In each case he outlines how the differentiated man is or will likely feel about these things.

I recommend this book to the open minded, you may or may not find yourself identifying in the course of reading as a differentiated man. Powerful stuff in the age of dissolution. Incidentally, there are numerous well produced tributes to this work on 'You Tube'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Linux freesat Card, 8 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like others I recently moved home and found that a sat dish was already at the new property. In addition the old antenna was not working. The cheapest option for my mythTV box was to change from DVB-T to DVB-S by purchasing this card.

I commend this manufacturer for excellent Linux support. Contained on the CD was excellent guidance for installation provided you have basic linux skills.

The first obstacle was that the card was not being properly recognised. The 'frontend' wasn't loading. dmesg showed this problem as well as the fact that a dvb device is missing from the /dev directory. The drive itself was contained with my kernel (fairly new)

Looking at the instructions on the CD it was obvious i needed to copy the firmware software into the right directory. did that. didn't work still. Next, after much googling I decided to manually resintall and compile as the cd instruction describe for the driver; replacing the one in the standard kernel with the one on the CD. That worked and a healthly looking card could be seen by the dmesg log and also in the /dev directory.

Next run mythbackend-setup. It found the card easily but, low and behold, the scan wouldn't work.

Next tried scan utitlies which successfully verified that the dish and LNB was working properly. Output a channels.conf file which I used mplayer to see if I could get any channels. Yes, success - could get up BBC THREE. So as far as the card is concerned this is the point where we can say it works a treat.

For other mythtv users; it was necessary to google various settings to get the scan working. Choose the first option for the dish (for Uk folk) not the universal Europe one mentioned on the parkers website. That will get you all the SD channels for freesat. next google for the DVB-S2 settings to get the BBC HD etc channels. This also worked. So have far too many channels now than I could possibly want including ITV 1 HD, BBC HD and BBC 1 HD. So far unable to see the channel 4 HD channel and the 5th one N..something won't work for some reason. Might make the the effort to get the channel 4 HD working - another scan might be required?

All in all, excellent card for Linux. Good instructions on the CD and various good websites to help you get it working. Others have reported only having to get the firmware copied across which is easy. My kernel is over a year old now so that might be why.

well done to tbs for Linux support!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent brief introduction to the European New Right, 21 Aug 2011
An indispensable book introducing the main thrusts of New Right ideology through a historic collection of essays by the author.

The book is split into 5 sections, each of each holding a number of essays espousing New Right interpretations of the subject area. These areas are religion, cultural pessimism, race, liberalism and democracy and finally multi-racialism and Communism. The last section has become somewhat less relevant than the others since the fall and defeat of communism, but still an important concept to get a grip on. It was fascinating to consider the West from the post-communist East; the author of course being a Croat having lived through communist regimes and the complete breakdown of the multi-racial state known as Yugoslavia.

More of the author's Croatian origins comes across in his account of the Croats and Germans during and just after ww2. I was not aware of the Holocaust against ethnic Germans in this part of Europe or the extermination of Croats and Germans alike by the communists just after the war.

The book introduces many important figures for the New Right mind. Spengler and De Benoit are well known to me, but one is introduced here to further important figures such as Schmitt and Pareto.

The first chapter I find especially memorable. There is a good essay on monotheisms versus polytheism, and how in some regards Polytheisms can offer greater tolerance than the so called religion of tolerance - Christianity! A central tenet, for me which is substantiated by this book is that we must reclaim a Indo-European religion.

Another new idea I took away from this book was that capitalism is caused by liberalism. I had regarded the two as somewhat distinct and non-dependent other than being mutually permissive. However, one of the essays here argues conclusively drawing from many other authors that in fact Liberalism is the causal system for capitalism, especially globalism.

Sunic is especially important to the New Right due to his multilingual abilities. He serves as a ideological anglosphere distributor, being able to translate important authors from both French and German. He is also able to distill their ideas and offer further insight.

My only criticism of this book is that some of the essays are looking very slightly dated. One or two were clearly written at the time of the balkan wars and the analysis has been superceded by events. I leave the reader to spot these themselves.

Overal an excellent, concise and readable introduction to New Right ideas. Good material for commuting, you can get a chapter into each daily bout!
