The Broken Pump in Tanzania: Julius Nyerere and the Collapse of Development Economics. Bishop Michael Msongazila invited E. Michael Jones to the diocese of Musoma to do research on Julius Nyerere, Tanzania’s founding father and first president. Bishop Msongazila’s predecessor had promoted Nyerere’s cause for canonization. Intrigued by the idea of a statesman-saint, Jones traveled to Tanzania to tell his story. What he found was not what he anticipated. Instead of writing a hagiography, Jones wrote a cautionary tale about development economics that focuses on a broken pump in Komuge. Six miles from the second largest source of fresh water in the world, the village of Komuge was once a model of Ujaama socialism. Now the pump is broken and the village’s inhabitants send their children to scoop up muddy water from a dried up pond. Virtually every water pump in the Mara region is broken. To explain why, Jones journeys from Dar es Salaam to Musoma to the current heart of darkness caused by a combination of socialism’s failure and capitalism’s revenge. Along the way he meets Joseph Conrad, Che Guevara, Robert McNamara and a host of heroic Maryknoll missionaries, who wrought wonders and then abandoned them in the wake of Vatican II and the collapse of the Church’s traditional understanding of missionary activity. Over them all stands Julius Nyerere. Ralph Waldo Emerson’s claim that every institution is the lengthened shadow of one man is true of Nyerere and Tanzania. Understanding how it is true is the best way to understand why the pump in Komuge is still broken and what it will take to fix it. $9.99 Read More/Buy (This title is also available in paperback here.)



Shylock's Ewes and Rams: Economics and Morality by E. Michael Jones. Whenever the state accepts the liceity of usurious contracts, everyone eventually gets saddled with unrepayable debt as the state allows the usurers to loot labor to pay for the usury burden. Capitalism posits the primacy of usury over human labor as the source of wealth and, therefore, as the most basic principle of the economy. In reality, capitalism is usury at the expense of labor. To conform with the Good, economics must subordinate itself to the moral law. $9.99 Read More/Buy (This title is also available in paperback here.)



The Angel and the Machine: The Rational Psychology of Nathaniel Hawthorne by E. Michael Jones. By the mid 19th century, American writers were caught between conflicting philosophies and paradigms. Just as Leo Marx's "The Machine in the Garden" looked at the conflict between pastoral and technological values, so The Angel and the Machine goes a step further and examines the conflicting paradigms at the heart of the culture's view of human nature. The book explicates this cultural phenomenon by examining the works of Nathaniel Hawthorne, seeing him as the culmination of a tradition rooted in the history both of science and of religion. $9.99 Read More/Buy



Amazon #1 Best Seller. The Man Behind the Curtain: Michael Voris and the Homosexual Vortex by E. Michael Jones. In April 2016 Michael Voris's homosexual past finally caught up with him. The crusading on-camera face of Church Militant TV who had been the scourge of homosexuals in the Catholic Church turned out to be a homosexual himself and tried to bring closure to the scandal by outing himself. But even if damage control brought about a quick fix, many questions remained unanswered. The Man Behind the Curtain addresses all of those questions. $3.99 Read More/Buy



Islam and Logos by E. Michael Jones. Many assume incorrectly that Islam is one coherent body of doctrine and action. There are many forms of Islam, including Sunni and Shi’a, which themselves differ in their approach to religious and social issues. After an introduction to the 1979 Iranian revolution and a history of earlier Islam, Islam and Logos turns to the significance of the concept of Logos, including an examination the nature of Islam in the light of Logos. It next details the approach of the Sunni and the Shi’a and that of Catholicism concerning faith and reason, before discussing the different approaches of Western and Islamic philosophy. Islam and Logos then addresses specific issues, most importantly: the question of Logos and sex; the allegation that the United States is “the Great Satan”; and Foucault’s contribution to thought on the Islamic revolution.

The Catholic Church and the Cultural Revolution by E. Michael Jones tells the story of the culture wars between the Catholic Church and the Enlightenment over the last sixty years. The battle in America was fought in three areas: schools and education; obscenity; and the family and sexuality. The book examines: the significance of the law and the courts; the impact of the Second Vatican Council; the main sources of the attempted subversion of the Church; the battles the Church fought with the media; the existence of a fifth column within the Church; the new Americanism that attempts to reconcile the Church and modernity by seeing America as an ideal state; and finally, "Where now in the Church?" $9.99.

Best known for his priest-detective Father Brown, G.K. Chesterton also wrote numerous stories with lesser known detectives, among them Mr. Pond, whose eight adventures appear in Chesterton's final collection of detective stories, The Paradoxes of Mr. Pond. The five stories collected in Mr. Puddle's Paradox by James G. Bruen, Jr. are a tribute to Chesterton and his character Mr. Pond. Each of these brief stories first appeared in the American Chesterton Society's Gilbert magazine. $2.99. Read More/Buy



The Jews and Moral Subversion, by E. Michael Jones. Anti-Semitism, a racial concept in the sense of hatred of the Jews because of immutable and ineradicable racial characteristics, is wrong and has always been repudiated by the Church. However, a Christian must be anti-Jewish in the sense of opposing beliefs and actions of Jews that operate as a consequence of the Jewish rejection of Christ. Many Jews try sincerely to live up to the moral law. Nevertheless, the Jews rejected Logos, the Reason for the universe and its redemption, and so rejected Christ, the Supernatural Messiah, in order to support anti-Christian revolutionary movements. This rejection of Logos has led directly to that cultural subversion and collapse of the moral order expressed in the title of this book. $9.99.

The Catholic Church and the Jews, by E. Michael Jones, concentrates on the key issues addressed in his extensive 2008 book The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit and explores relevant matters that have occurred since its publication. The Catholic Church and the Jews compares the approaches of Christianity, Islam, and the Jews, delineating the essential nature of each. It introduces the Jewish revolutionary spirit, illustrated by the evidence from history, analyzes the key modern document, the Vatican II Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions, known as Nostra Aetate, and then addresses whether the Gospels are anti-Semitic; the Jewish contribution to the rise of Bolshevism and Communism; the question of the Holocaust, notably the policy adopted by Pope Pius XII; the role of the Jews in the development of modern media, notably Hollywood; the attitude of Jews toward abortion; the approach of the Jews to "gay marriage;" and the Vatican's 2015 document The Gifts and Calling of God Are Irrevocable. $9.99.

Ethnos Needs Logos: Why I Spent Three Days in Guadalajara Trying to Persuade David Duke to Become a Catholic, by E. Michael Jones. Ethnos needs Logos, especially if it aspires, as every ethnic group does, to become a nation. Logos, not race, allowed the warring tribes of Europe who plundered the last structures of the Roman Empire to coalesce into the nations that constituted Christian Europe. The necessary preparation for German unity was spiritual, and it took a millennium. In Mexico, unity happened by miracle overnight. Juan Diego's tilma, with its depiction of the Virgin Mary, is the symbol of Mexico, the basis for a Mexican culture that has survived the predations of the richer and more powerful neighbor to the north. Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared as a mestiza, a mixture of European and Native American races. She was the cosmic symbol of the race mixing the English feared since the moment they set foot on the soil of the New World. She was the symbol of Mexican identity. She was the symbol of Catholic race-mixing and the antithesis of England's and later America's and still later Germany's ideology of racial superiority. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Culture Wars in India, by E. Michael Jones. Crossing the bridge that serves as one of the many street market places in Calcutta, Mike Jones notices what look like trash bags or piles of rags precariously perched on the pipes that parallel the walkway. When an arm protrudes from one, he realizes that these are human cocoons, holding people sleeping inside who are now stirring at the beginning of a new day at ground zero of this planet's economic life. There is no place else to go for the people who live on the sidewalks of India other than the grave. India, as a result, calls into question all of our assumptions about what we want and what we need. It calls into question all of our categories. Is there any logos in all of this chaos? $3.99.

The Roots of India's Rape Crisis, by E. Michael Jones. When Jyoti Singh Pandey and her boyfriend left the movie theater in Saket, South Delhi, the busses had stopped running, and the cabbies wouldn't take them where they wanted to go. At a loss, they were approached by a man who said his bus was available. They accepted the ride. When her boyfriend later tried to get the bus driver to stop and let them out, the men on the bus beat him until he was unconscious. Then they dragged Jyoti to the back of the bus and beat and raped her. The world was horrified, but the rape of Jyoti Singh was only the tip of the iceberg in India, where rape had reached epidemic proportions. Some people blamed the caste system; others blamed western culture. Indian traditionalists blamed the women because of how they dressed and behaved. Feminists blamed "patriarchy." In The Roots of India's Rape Crisis, E. Michael Jones looks even deeper into the roots of the rape crisis in India. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Tolkien's Failed Quest, by E. Michael Jones. Tolkien got the symbols in The Hobbit from Wagner's Ring cycle, but he was testy and sensitive about Wagner. The English had a long history of philo-Semitism that did not mesh with Wagner's anti-Semitism, leading to an artistic conflict that Tolkien could not resolve. In purging Wagner's symbols of their anti-Semitism, Tolkien purged them of their meaning, for the real issue in Wagner's Das Rheingold is capitalism, not anti-Semitism. And if capitalism is the real issue, England must be the villain, which is unacceptable to Tolkien, an English patriot. Once rearranged to suit English sensibilities, though, those symbols lose their power, meaning, and coherence. $2.99. Read More/Buy



There Is No We, by James G. Bruen, Jr. These eight flash fiction stories were first published in the American Chesterton Society’s Gilbert magazine. Each lists slightly to the dark side. There’s even a touch of deviltry. $2.99. Read More/Buy



In The Magi and the Apartheid Wall, E. Michael Jones reflects upon his May 2014 speaking tour in Iran. He blends personal experience and geopolitics in weaving a cautionary tale for our age. The book includes the text of the talk he presented three times while in Iran. $2.99. Read More/Buy



The Ratcatcher, a novel by E. Michael Jones. When Adam Newman arrived in Germany in 1971, he thought he was going to teach English. Caught up in the CIA-orchestrated sexualization of German culture and the violent reaction it caused, Newman went from being a teacher, to being a rock star, to being a terrorist with the Baader-Meinhof Gang. After gang members were apprehended, Newman collaborated with El Fatah and what was left of the Rote Armee Faktion in a daring plan that would either get the prisoners released or decapitate the Federal Republic by blowing up the financial and political elites held hostage at a remote castle on the lower Rhein. Newman learns what it means to be an American in the first significant post-World War II uprising against the American Empire. He learns how politics is sexual. He learns that Americans are not innocent and Germans not guilty. He learns more than he taught. $9.99. Read More/Buy



The Absence of Father Brown by James G. Bruen, Jr. Six cozy short mystery stories featuring Father Paul Petersen, a priest at St. Patrick's in the City in Washington, D.C. Each of the stories was first published in the American Chesterton Society's Gilbert magazine. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Abu Ghraib and The American Empire by E. Michael Jones. Invited to speak on torture at Valparaiso University, E. Michael Jones found his time cut in half. His original plan (to show Israeli influence at Abu Ghraib) required first showing feminist complicity in the torture at Abu Ghraib. Cut in half, his presentation ended with feminism -- with Barbara Ehrenreich's claim that "a uterus is no substitute for a conscience" -- which enraged the lady professors at Valparaiso. He only told half the story at Valpariso. You can read the full story in this e-book: a compelling analysis of feminist complicity in torture, Israeli influence at Abu Ghraib, and The American Empire championed by neocons. $2.99.

Civilta Cattolica on The Jewish Question with an extended Introduction by E. Michael Jones. One hundred years after the French Revolution, the editors of Civilta Cattolica, the official voice of the Vatican on political affairs, came to a startling conclusion: any country that turns away from laws based on the teaching of the Catholic Church and God's eternal law will end up being ruled by Jews. These three articles, originally published in 1890, explain in detail why this is so, both for France in 1890 and for America today. The assertion that Jewish political power derives from usury could have been written with Occupy Wall Street in mind. $3.99. Read More/Buy



L'affaire Williamson: The Catholic Church and Holocaust Denial by E. Michael Jones. As soon as the news leaked that the Catholic Church was going to lift the excommunications of four Society of St. Pius X bishops, reports that one, Bishop Richard Williamson, was a "Holocaust denier" began circulating. News reports kept confusing the Church’s focus on the sin of schism with the unforgivable secular sins, "Holocaust denial" and anti-Semitism. Why? Holocaust denial is another word for Jewish control of discourse, especially historical discourse about World War II. A historian who publishes something a powerful Jew, which is to say a Jew with powerful backers, dislikes, will be punished. Blacking listing and firing are typical punishments. L'affaire Williamson describes and defies the artificial rules that control discourse, exposing fissions within society and the Church. $4.99. Read More/Buy



Travels with Harley in Search of America: Motorcycles, War, Deracination, Consumer Identity by E. Michael Jones. The RV, a home for the deracinated, entered the canon of American literature with John Steinbeck's Travels with Charley In Search of America, the story of his RV trip from Maine to California and back. The RV is the modern version of the Conestoga wagon; the motorcycle is the equivalent of the horse, and the biker is the cowboy. The cowboys were Civil War veterans who never made it home to the America that war destroyed. So, too, biker culture is a reaction to war. Bikers were disaffected vets of World War II and Vietnam, the boys who never made it back to the world those wars destroyed. As America came to see social engineering as repugnant, Hell’s Angels took on the aura of outlaw heroes. Burdened by onerous social control, the socially engineered citizen was increasingly fascinated by deviance, which he incorrectly saw as the antithesis of and antidote to social control. The dominant culture exploited this fascination by developing even more sophisticated controls based on the arousal of sexual passion. Searing cultural analysis. $3.99. Read More/Buy


The K of C prides itself on its prolife stance and prolife activities, and Knights are supposed to be "practical" Catholics. Nevertheless, the K of C includes men who are publicly and adamantly proabortion or prochoice. Errant Knight: The Scandal of Prochoice Knights by James G. Bruen, Jr. details the efforts of a group of individual Knights to sanction a brother Knight who was a publicly prochoice politician. It describes the personalities, pleadings, and internal K of C practices and procedures that led to a sentence of indefinite suspension of the Knight after a trial committee found him guilty of giving scandal, as well as the aftermath of his conviction. Must reading for Knights and for all interested in the K of C. Give a copy of this short book to every Knight you know. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Jewish Nazis by E. Michael Jones. The Believer, a film about Danny Balint, an orthodox Jew who becomes a neo-Nazi, won the 2001 Sundance film festival Grand Jury Prize. It's based loosely on Daniel Burros, a neo-Nazi who committed suicide in the ‘60s after the New York Times exposed him as a Jew. When Danny Balint is called by a Times reporter, he gives an eloquent articulation of anti-Semitism. Judaism "is a sickness. . . . The real Jew is a nomad and a wanderer. He has no roots and no attachments. He universalizes everything. All he can do is buy and sell and manipulate markets. It’s all mental. Marx, Freud, Einstein: what have they given us? Communism, infantile sexuality and the atom bomb. They want nothing but nothingness, nothing without end." Balint penetrates to the heart of Judaism, understanding that the Jew worships Nothingness. If Hitler is chief Nihilist of the 20th century, he is chief rabbi of the religion that worships "nothing but nothingness, nothing without end," attaining that position by default when the Catholic Church stopped working for conversion of the Jews. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Speed Bump by James G. Bruen, Jr. Five flash fiction stories, published originally in the American Chesterton Society's Gilbert Magazine. Each stands alone; together they also constitute a single narrative. Speed Bump is a story of neighborhood, solidarity, and struggle against oppressive government; inspired by G. K. Chesterton's The Napoleon of Notting Hill and his The Man Who Knew Too Much. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Requiem for a Whale Rider by E. Michael Jones. SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau died after the 12,000 pound bull killer whale grabbed her from a feeding platform and dragged her underwater. Saying "she died doing what she loved," her sister assured a reporter that "Dawn wouldn't want anything done to the whale now blamed in her death." The reason women risk their lives by riding whales goes deeper. Riding whales in Florida, like riding bulls in Minoan Crete, is a religious ritual. As the image of Europa on the Bull shows, riding an animal is a vaguely sexual act that bespeaks approval, but also union, which confers on the rider the innocence of the ridden animal. Finding only momentary relief from guilt, those burdened with an uneasy conscience force themselves on the animals whose innocence and approval they crave until an unpredictable mechanism goes off in the animal and the animal kills the human who sought its approval. $2.99.

The Academic Exercise by James G. Bruen, Jr. Four cozy short mystery stories, including the winner of the 1991 Stuart Stiller Writing Competition Award. Father Paul Petersen, a priest at St. Patrick's in the City in Washington, D.C., solves a murder that occurred during a class at Catholic University of America's law school and several lesser crimes. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Impossible Possibilities by James G. Bruen, Jr. These five brief interlocking stories of people who accomplish the proverbially impossible were published originally in the American Chesterton Society's Gilbert Magazine. Each story stands alone, but together they also constitute a single narrative, Impossible Possibilities. Humorous yet serious, Impossible Possibilities is a paradoxical story of family, rootedness, and struggle against big business and government. Inspired by G. K. Chesterton's Tales of the Long Bow. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Lejzor and Fiszel Sing the Blues: Chess Records and the Black-Jewish Alliance by E. Michael Jones. Hollywood has a way of turning history upside down. Directors often don't know what their own movies mean. The classic instance is horror movies. The same is true in general of the genre known as the biopic and in particular of the biopic of the Chess brothers, Cadillac Records. It's difficult to imagine a topic more likely to generate animosity between Blacks and Jews than the story of two Polish Jews ripping off the royalties of illiterate blues singers from Mississippi, which is what Cadillac Records portrays -- a Hollywood movie on one of the most sordid chapters of the movement known as the Black-Jewish Alliance. Murray Friedman, who headed the American Jewish Committee in Philadelphia, once wrote a book about the Black-Jewish Alliance called What Went Wrong? Lejzor and Fiszel Sing the Blues answers that question in minute if depressing detail. $2.99. Read More/Buy



The Logos of Architecture and Its Opponents by E. Michael Jones. Logos pervades every aspect of our lives. The buildings we build depend on who we are and how we define ourselves in relation to Logos. The post World War II building boom that spread Bauhaus architecture throughout the world caused two reactions: one Catholic, the other Jewish. The Logos of Architecture and Its Opponents describes the architecturally surprising but ethnically predictable reactions of Thomas Gordon Smith and Frank Gehry to the tyranny of Bauhaus architecture. $2.99.

Niggas in Denial: Pimping the System and The System of Pimping by E. Michael Jones, is the story of Caroline Peoples, who is serving seven consecutive life sentences for murders she committed on the South Side of Chicago. Caroline is one of the monsters created in American ghettos - drug and alcohol abuser, thief, "dancer", prostitute, and murderer - but a human being too, who decided to tell the truth about life in the ghetto no matter what it cost her, a truth E. Michael Jones shares in this book. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Benedict's Rule: The Rise of Ethnicity and the Fall of Rome by E. Michael Jones. Benedict of Nursia could not save the Roman Empire, but he did something more remarkable: he created Europe to take its place. He took the best classical culture had to offer, combined it with Christianity, and came up with a very specific way to live in a world where chaos was the rule. The Rule of St. Benedict proposed in specific terms, down to the amount of beer a monk was allowed to drink, how to live in a world where the empire had failed. Benedict's Rule brought order and classical coherence to the chaos. Today, Europe has lost contact with its roots. The Enlightenment separates Europe's contemporary inhabitants from the man who made their culture possible. $3.99. Read More/Buy



Escape From Globalism: Meditations While Rowing Down the Danube by E. Michael Jones. Join Mike Jones as he rows a romantic stretch of the Danube, the river that once formed the northern boundary of the Roman Empire and that remains the main artery of commerce in southeastern Europe, past the baroque palace at Melk and past the Benedictine monasteries that brought civilization and Christianity to barbarians, and also as he bicycles from Pittsburgh, PA to Washington, D.C. Along the way, Jones reflects on American and European land-use policy, civilization's relationship to nature and wilderness, Christian culture, popular culture, ethnic culture, globalism, and much more. $2.99. Read More/Buy



The Christmas Stamp and other stories by James G. Bruen, Jr. These seven brief stories converge on Christmas from differing angles. There's romance, humor, charity, burglary, mischief, and even a corpse or two. All but one were published originally in the American Chesterton Society's Gilbert Magazine. The other first appeared in Culture Wars. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Assassins and Character Assassins: Spielberg's Munich by E. Michael Jones. A scene in Steven Spielberg's movie Munich depicts a Mossad hit squad, avenging the murder of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics in Munich, running from room to room while holding photos of suspects next to the faces of men they're about to execute for something they may or may not have done. The dimly lit rooms are full of screaming women and children and men dying of gunshot wounds because they resembled someone the Mossad condemned to death. What Spielberg decried as immoral, racist, Israeli-style "justice" is now the norm for America. Beginning with the Bush administration's turn to torture, Americans, including Jewish Americans like Spielberg, have watched in dismay as the rule of law was replaced by the Jewish reading of the lex talionis. Art found its fulfillment in life when Navy seals broke into a compound in Pakistan and murdered someone they claimed was Osama bin Laden. We'll never know, because the body was dumped into the sea. What perdures is the wreck of the rule of law and the ongoing Israelification of our military and intelligence agencies, which now function as judge, jury, and executioner with targeted assassinations by drones. $2.99. Read More/Buy


Protectors of the Code: The Christmas Day Abortion Clinic Bombing by E. Michael Jones. On Christmas Day in 1984 Matthew Goldsby and James Simmons bombed the Ladies' Center, an abortion clinic in Pensacola, Florida, as "a birthday present for Jesus," in the words of Kaye Wiggins, Goldsby's fianceé. Arrested quickly, the three of them and Simmons' wife Kathy were soon on trial. The defense team believed the country was going to put an end to abortion either by government fiat or by popular dissent, perhaps triggered by the decision of the jury. Protectors of the Code is their story, recounted with great insight and in riveting detail — a searing analysis of an event that captured the attention of the nation and demonstrated the fault lines in American society. $2.99.

Culture Jihad in Tehran by E. Michael Jones. Islam has an uncanny ability to arrive on the scene when Christianity is failing in its mission. Martin Luther referred to this uncanny ability as the scourge of God. He should know; he was the scourge of God in his own way. When Pope Alexander VI aborted the counter-revolution against sodomy and usury launched by Savonarola in Florence, God sent Luther and Islam as the scourge of God to purify a corrupted Christendom. When the counter-revolution against modernity that should have been launched by Vatican II got aborted, God sent the Iranian revolution of 1979. The reverberations are with us still. Reflecting on his 2013 trip to Iran, E. Michael Jones analyzes the interplay between Catholicism, Islam, and Americanism in today's world. $3.99. Read More/Buy



A Coney Island of the Mindless by E. Michael Jones. When Mike Jones and his son Peter arrived at Coney Island on their way to the beach, they found their way blocked by 750,000 people, police barricades, and mermaids. They'd stumbled onto the Coney Island Mermaid Parade, "an excuse to go naked in New York City." Given Coney Island's history as "Sodom by the Sea," the exhibitionism of the mermaids wasn't entirely unexpected, but the decadence was palpable nonetheless. Coney Island was never edifying, but it became culturally toxic when it became a Coney Island of the mind and amusement became synonymous with vice, to enslave an American populace best characterized as the Coney Island mindless. $2.99. Read More/Buy



Last Meal and other stories by James G. Bruen, Jr. Last Meal includes a half dozen flash fiction stories in which things sometimes go horribly wrong and at other times go wonderfully right, or at least they seem to. These six quick reads appeared originally in Gilbert Magazine, the journal of the American Chesterton Society. $2.99. Read More/Buy
