The Black Holocaust For Beginners

Author: S.E. Anderson
Publisher: Red Wheel/Weiser
ISBN: 9781934389997
Release Date: 2007-08-21
Genre: Social Science

Virtually anyone, anywhere knows that six million Jewish human beings were killed in the Jewish Holocaust. But how many African human beings were killed in the Black Holocaust – from the start of the European slave trade (c. 1500) to the Civil War (1865)? And how many were enslaved? The Black Holocaust, a travesty that killed millions of African human beings, is the most underreported major event in world history. A major economic event for Europe and Asia, a near fatal event for Africa, the seminal event in the history of every African American – if not every American! – and most of us cannot answer the simplest question about it. Here is a sample of what you will get from the painstakingly researched, painfully honest The Black Holocaust For Beginners: “The total number of slaves imported is not known. It is estimated that nearly 900,000 came to America in the 16th Century, 2.75 million in the 17th Century, 7 million in the 18th, and over 4 million in the 19th – perhaps 15 million in total. Probably every slave imported represented, on average, five corpses in Africa or on the high seas. The American slave trade, therefore, meant the elimination of at least 60 million Africans from their fatherland.” The Black Holocaust For Beginners – part indisputably documented chronicle, part passionately engaging narrative, puts the tragic event in plain sight where it belongs! The long overdue book answers all of your questions, sensitively and in great depth.

Chosen People from the Caucasus

Author: Michael Anderson Bradley
Publisher:
ISBN: IND:30000044501603
Release Date: 1992
Genre: History

In Chosen People From the Caucasus, Bradley extends his iceman theory to a provocative and controversial discussion of the Hebrews. "Given their relatively small numbers, Jews have had an inordinately great influence on Western Civilization", says Bradley. "And given the fact that Western civilization has come to dominate the world over the past five hundred years, Jews have accordingly played a major role in the unfolding drama of all humanity". Is this historical phenomenon merely coincidence, Jewish birthright or are there more plausible explanations? Michael Bradley presents a well-documented work that dares to ask and answer these important questions. Chosen People from the Caucasus focuses on the two separate groups of people who emerged from the Caucasus mountains of the Middle East; those people who comprise the vast majority of Modern Jewry, who converted to Judaism about 740 A.D. and were later pushed into Central and Eastern Europe by Mongol invasions, and the Biblical Hebrews who emerged 2700 years earlier. Both peoples, ironically, are considered to be "Jews" - although they have no direct historical or genetic connection to each other. Bradley commends that people and cultures emerging from the Caucasus mountains (a known refuge of late-lingering Neanderthal populations) in proto-historical and historical times would have remained highly aggressive and psychosexually maladapted. Beneath the mystique of "the chosen people", the cultural fusion of these two separate streams of "Jews" has, since the 16th century, played an important role in the evolution of Western civilization and thus, in the molding of the entire world's present cultural profile. Bradley contends that auniquely high level of lingering Neanderthal aggression has been responsible for the major role played by those calling themselves Jews in the discovery and conquest of the Americas, the transatlantic trade in Black Africans as slaves and cultural colonization of non-Whites by the West. It has been a role too often distorted and disguised by loud lamentations of "anti-Semitism". In his widely acclaimed The Iceman Inheritance, Michael Bradley presented evidence that Ice Age ancestors of modern Europeans exhibited extreme aggression and psychosexual frustration compared to all known ancestors of other "major groups" (races) of modern man. This, he argued, was a significant factor in the unfolding of human history: it explained Western Man's conquest of the world at the expense of other peoples. Since its initial publication in 1978, The Iceman Inheritance has been supported by the work of noted anthropologists and psychologists (including Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, Dr. Eric Trinkhaus, Dr. T. Dale Stewart and others). Chosen People From the Caucasus, continues Bradley's investigation by focusing on the Hebrews.
