"A Regeneration of the Pre-Christian Spiritual Worldviews and Religious Practices of the Holy Isles." This book is very different from anything Robin Artisson has written so far, for a very special reason: it is written in the tone of a father to his children. This book is a gift for his children, full of things he would want them to know and things he would want to tell them, to help them through their lives. The book is closer, more intimate, and warmer than most of his work. But it includes massive amounts of material regarding native British Isles (Britain and Ireland) traditional Paganism and spiritual ecology, and native Gods and Goddesses. Tons of scholarly backing and personal inspiration, as well as a wide and complete selection of traditional Pagan philosophical "points of guidance" are offered, as a father would want to offer his most beloved offspring. A full working reconstruction of the pre-Christian polytheistic religious perspectives and practices of Pagan Britain and Ireland is "taught" in its pages, like a guidebook and a long letter/narrative being sent from father to children. There is a long occult tradition of such exchanges. All are invited to listen in on a man telling the most important things he can tell his children, and hoping that they remember these things when he is gone and they have children of their own. A very personal project, but one he has wanted to create and write for years, and it deals with years worth of material he has collected.

By the end of 1925, the Ku Klux Klan had lost most of its members across the United States. This work examines opposition to the group from 1922 to 1926. It seeks to understand the decline in membership the 1920s Klan experienced after its power peaked in 1923 and 1924. To do so, it examines anti-Klan activity in Steubenville, Ohio; Williamson County, Illinois; and in Ohio’s Mahoning Valley with a focus on Niles, Ohio. Legal efforts to oppose the Klan by the Knights of Columbus and two foreign-language newspapers in the Mahoning Valley are explored. However, examining the role of the Knights of the Flaming Circle, a rival organization, in opposing the Klan in these locations is the primary focus. The Knights of the Flaming Circle emerged as an opponent to the Klan in August of 1923 and spread from Pennsylvania into Ohio and Illinois. Initially, the group, founded in Kane, Pennsylvania, championed the causes of liberty and equality and announced its intention to challenge the Klan in an orderly and legal fashion. However, as the organization spread to the industrial cities of Western Pennsylvania and Ohio, the tone of the organization’s rhetoric changed, and, the threat of violence between it and the Klan loomed. The threat became a reality when the Flaming Circle movement reached the coalfields of Williamson County in late 1923. Not long after, Niles, Ohio, joined Williamson County, as the other primary location of conflicts between the factions. From August 1923 to early 1925, the Flaming Circle’s fierce opposition to the Klan resonated around the country due to numerous violent riots and because these incidents were covered by the local and national press. This ensured that even people not located in areas where the two groups were active had constant updates anytime there was trouble. As a result of the conflicts, and a host of other complicating factors, Klan membership dropped significantly across the United States. This study seeks to understand what motivated both sides to engage in such violent behavior toward each other and to analyze why the Knights of the Flaming Circle were successful in helping to halt the Klan movement in the North.

Previous studies on the Italian-American reaction to the Ku Klux Klan in Niles, Ohio primarily discussed the Knights of the Flaming Circle, an anti-Klan organization whose efforts and activities news writers well documented in local papers. Some completed oral interviews of those who experienced the presence of the Klan to supplement the information obtained from newspaper accounts. However, most of these interviews took place in the 1980s, nearly sixty years after the riot between the Knights of the Flaming Circle and the Klan. Furthermore, the age of the interviewees limited the validity of the oral histories. Only one local newspaper, Il Cittadino Italo-Americano, provided an account of the events in the Mahoning Valley through the perspective of Italian-Americans. The newspaper, written in Italian, had scarcely been analyzed for research. It contained valuable information regarding Italian-American attitudes toward the Klan, the United States, and the Mahoning Valley. Most importantly, the newspaper provided evidence of another Italian reaction to the Klan, separate from the Knights of the Flaming Circle. Il Cittadino Italo-Americano called Italian-Americans to participate in the American political process and prove their American citizenship by contributing to Niles society. Il Cittadino Italo-Americano served as the most significant primary source to determine the Italian-American reaction to the Ku Klux Klan. Information gathered from other local newspapers, oral histories, census data, and secondary literature supplemented that obtained from Il Cittadino Italo-Americano. Using these sources, the study proved that another Italian-American reaction against the Klan existed. These Italians were politically active, literate, educated, and considered themselves American citizens.

The third volume of The Cambridge Translations of Medieval Philosophical Texts will allow scholars and students access in English, to major texts that form the debate over mind and knowledge at the center of medieval philosophy. Beginning with thirteenth-century attempts to classify the soul's powers and to explain the mind's place within the soul, the volume proceeds systematically to consider the scope of human knowledge and the role of divine illumination, intentionality and mental representation, and attempts to identify the object of human knowledge in terms of concepts and propositions. The authors included are Henry of Ghent, Peter John Olivi, William Alnwick, Peter Aureol, William Ockham, William Crathorn, Robert Holcot, Adam Wodeham as well as two anonymous Parisian masters of arts. This volume will be an important resource for scholars and students of medieval philosophy, history, theology and literature.

This book is a narrative history which describes how the Ohio National Guard survived and even prospered as part of the American military establishment during a period characterized by anti-military sentiments. From 1919 to 1940, while the United States' Regular Army was so starved for funds that it barely remained a serious fighting force, the Ohio National Guard, and other states' Guard organizations, was relatively well funded; the Ohio National Guard was deemed worthy of public support because it, unlike the Regular Army, was staffed by citizen soldiers and thus was never perceived as a threat to the state. This book provides a comprehensive picture of the National Guard during these years and is valuable to anyone interested in United States military history.
