Immersed in Red chronicles Mr. Shotwell's exposure to Marxist ideology during his formative years, which touched every facet of daily life. As a young man he came face to face with looming communism in Venezuela during his Peace Corps service in the late 1960s. This wakeup call, coupled with his developing understanding of the horrors produced by twentieth century socialism, led to acomplete break from his ideological past.
With comments on the second edition, an index, bibliography and published articles, Mr. Shotwell offers readers important insights into the origins of today's hard-driving race to the left:
? The European forerunners of Cultural Marxism in higher education
? The compulsion to dismantle religion and the family
? Demands for societal conformity and reliance on the State
Our current social and political upheaval have been a long time in the making. Immersed in Red reveals the groundwork that has brought us to this disturbing crossroad.

Since its immediate success in 1813, Pride and Prejudice has remained one of the most popular novels in the English language. Jane Austen called this brilliant work "her own darling child" and its vivacious heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, "as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print." The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and her proud beau, Mr. Darcy, is a splendid performance of civilized sparring. And Jane Austen's radiant wit sparkles as her characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, making this book the most superb comedy of manners of Regency England.

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Critique of Judgment: Theory of the Aesthetic Judgment and Theory of the Teleological Judgment" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
The Critique of Judgment, also translated as the Critique of the Power of Judgment and more commonly referred to as the third Critique, is a philosophical work by Immanuel Kant. Critique of Judgment completes the Critical project begun in the Critique of Pure Reason and the Critique of Practical Reason (the first and second Critiques, respectively). The book is divided into two main sections: the Critique of Aesthetic Judgment and the Critique of Teleological Judgment, and also includes a large overview of the entirety of Kant's Critical system, arranged in its final form. The end result of Kant's Critical Project is that there are certain fundamental antinomies in human Reason, most particularly that there is a complete inability to favor on the one hand the argument that all behavior and thought is determined by external causes, and on the other that there is an actual "spontaneous" causal principle at work in human behavior.
Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) was a German philosopher, who, according to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy is "the central figure of modern philosophy." Kant argued that fundamental concepts of the human mind structure human experience, that reason is the source of morality, that aesthetics arises from a faculty of disinterested judgment, that space and time are forms of our understanding, and that the world as it is "in-itself" is unknowable. Kant took himself to have effected a Copernican revolution in philosophy, akin to Copernicus' reversal of the age-old belief that the sun revolved around the earth.
