The minister and the massacres by Nikolai Tolstoy( Book )

14 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Af forordet fremgår det, at flere end to millioner flygtninge blev overgivet som konsekvens af Jaltakonferencen i februar 1945 af de vestlige allierede til Stalin. Flertallet af disse flygtninge, der var strandet i hhv. Central- og Vesteuropa ved 2. verdenskrigs afslutning, blev enten myrdet ved ankomsten eller forvist til Gulagadministrationens berygtede udryddelseslejre. Begivenhederne vil beklageligvis nu misforstået blive opfattet som et resultat af den britiske og amerikanske regerings officielle politik. Nikolai Tolstoy, som er slægtning til den store Tolstoy, har skrevet denne bog om udlevering af ca. 40.000 kosakker og hviderussere til likvidering i Sovjet samt udlevering af tusindvis af kroatere til likvidering i Jugoslavien. Ministeren, der hentydes til i titlen som den ansvarlige, er premierminister Harold MacMillan

Questions the motivations of Sol Littman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center of Los Angeles in the recent campaign to track down Nazi war criminals in Canada, which resulted in the creation of the Deschenes Commission. States that the Ukrainians as a whole are attacked for collaboration with the Nazis, Soviet war crimes are ignored and Soviet evidence accepted as valid. Claims that the USSR encourages war crimes trials to blacken the name of anti-Soviet emigre groups and fabricates evidence. Warns that cooperation with the USSR, a participant in many Nazi war crimes and inheritor of antisemitic doctrines, cannot lead to discovery of the truth

The mysteries of Stonehenge : myth and ritual at the Sacred Centre by Nikolai Tolstoy( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stonehenge presents us with one of the greatest archaeological mysteries from pre-history. With each new breakthrough in field research and technological innovation, the full scale and significance of the ancient site only deepens. In this new magisterial study by Nikolai Tolstoy, an essentially historical approach is used to try and explain the human story behind the implacable stones, and to enliven our understanding of Stonehenge through the fragments of myth and ritual that survive through Britain's oral tradition. With years of patient study and an acquired fluency with the island's many ancient languages, Tolstoy excavates a new theory from the layers of cultural sediment. Whilst admitting the latest archaeological evidence and research, Tolstoy aims to reconstruct the significant aspects of British pagan ideology and thinking from the pre-Roman era. By exploring the myths and rituals passed down alongside the material remnants of this lost civilization, Stonehenge becomes illumined as the 'sacred centre' of Britain, the holy site at which the ancient peoples' most profound beliefs -- in the birth, destruction, and eventual rebirth of their island itself -- were celebrated."--Publisher information
