Published and unpublished -- recent and older

This site contains a book-length opus -- a monograph on the motivations of Leftists -- followed by some shorter generally related articles. The monograph is published on the net only but an earlier edited book saw paper publication. The earlier book too is available here

John Ray's personal list of interesting links

I have also posted on this site a number of duplicate copies of files from elsewhere on the internet. I have done so in case they cease to be available elsewhere. Obviously, I think they are of sufficient interest to remain available even though they may originally have been only newspaper articles and the like. Note that my posting of them does not necessarily mean that I agree with them. Quite the opposite in some cases.

I list them hereunder:

There are in fact eight types of article stored on this site: Backups (as immediately above); my published academic papers; my unpublished academic papers; my recent internet-only articles; my short internet-only articles; Older academic articles written by others and previously unpublished articles by others.


Very often in my writings, I link back to previous articles of mine as a way of making available a more detailed treatment of a given subject. It's a pervasive academic practice. At times, however, the link concerned will cease to work after a while -- usually for reasons beyond my control. In such cases the article concerned is still available -- but at a different address. To find the article, putting one of the following in front of the filename will generally recover the article concerned:




For example, you might be trying to access articles as follows:



Neither article is now available at those addresses but you can find other versions as follows:



"Dead" links are a besetting problem on the net but "difficulties exist to be overcome"! Who said that? I think it is usually attributed to Maria Montessori but Hitler had his own predictably aggressive version of it too: "Widerstaende sind nicht da, dass man vor ihnen kapituliert, sondern dass man sie bricht". Breaking things won't work in this instance, though. The Wayback Machine is also a good way of recovering "lost" files.
