S. L. TIKHVINSKY. The Soviet Union's Struggle for Peace on the Eve of the Second World War

The article examines the foreign policy followed by the Soviet Union in the 1930's, which was chiefly aimed at containing the aggressive aspirations of German fascism through the collective actions undertaken by the Soviet Union, Britain and France in strengthening European security. Drawing on a wealth of documentary materials, the author graphically shows how the ruling circles of Britain and France, blinded by their anti-communism, took the course of abetting Hitler's aggression, and highlights the anti-national policy pursued by the ruling element of bourgeois Czechoslovakia and Poland. Emphasizing the great scientific-theoretical and political significance of objectively reflecting the history of World War II, the author points to a considerable extension of the documentary and historiographic basis of research into the given problem in the Soviet Union.

V. A. ARKHIPOV. Private Lease of State-Owned Enterprises in the Period of NEP

The article highlights an important aspect of the new economic policy, which has been inadequately reflected in historical literature - the use of private enterprise in industry under state control over the period from 1921 to 1930. Drawing on a wide range of sources including legislative acts, archive materials published in the 1920's and statistical data, the author traces the dynamics of the enterprises leased out to private businessmen, their proportion in industrial production, the methods of regulating relations with the lessees.

The author comes to the conclusion that the private lease of state-owned enterprises was based on Lenin's plan to adopt the new economic policy and was necessitated by the appalling economic dislocation reigning in the country as a result of the Civil War and foreign military intervention. Permitting the lease of small and often enough unprofitable enterprises, the Soviet state concentrated its efforts on the restoration and development of the rest of socialist industry. The sector of the privately leased enterprises played a definite auxiliary role in obtaining additional produce, thereby facilitating the attainment of the main political objective - consolidation of the alliance between the working class and the peasantry on the basis of commodity circulation. With the beginning of socialist industrialization the lease of state-owned enterprises was discontinued.

E. L. RUDNITSKAYA. Michael Nalbandian and the Russian Revolutionary Movement of the 1860's

The article is devoted to Michael Nalbandian - the founder of Armenian revolutionary-democratic culture, whose multiform socio-political activity and literary work as a poet and publicist is examined in close connection with the history of the Russian revolutionary movement, in which he played an active part. Nalbandian's ideological development is viewed by the author as characteristic of a typical representative of the commoner intellectual-democratic stage of the liberation movement in Russia, who traversed all the way from democratic enlightenment to revolutionary democratism.

The ideological and political content of his publicistic works is shown in close context with the programme and ideological platform of the clandestine "Land and Freedom" society which began to be formed in Russia in the years of the first revolutionary situation, with the propaganda spread by the free Russian press headed by Alexander Herzen and Nikolai Ogarev, with the revolutionary preaching of Nikolai Chernyshevsky and Nikolai Dobrolyubov. The author traces the ideological and organizational links of Nalbandian's efforts to rally the democratic forces of the Armenian people in Russia and Turkey with the all-Russian and European liberation movement, with the Italian people's struggle under the leadership of Giuseppe Garibaldi.

R. G. SKRYNNIKOV. Yermak's Siberian Expedition

The article recapitulates the history of the first Siberian expedition undertaken by a group of the Volga Cossacks under the leadership of ataman Yermak Timofeyevicri. A number of authentic 16th-century documents in conjunction with newly discovered archive materials about Yermak have enabled the author to re-examine the chronology of the campaign and the relevant information about its participants and initiators.

V. V. SOGRIN. The Emergence and Struggle of Ideological Traditions in the U.S.A.

The author focusses attention on the ideological struggle in the U.S.A. during the first decades of independence, showing how in the course of heated debates on the paths of the social, economic and political development of the American nation there take shape heterogeneous ideological traditions. The democratic trend in American social thought is permeated with egalitarian socio-economic ideas and radical political doctrines. Counterposing it is the moderately conservative ideological trend, whose representatives are distinguished by their worship of economic liberalism, their faith in the justice of unequal distribution of property, justification of the right to political privileges and state power enjoyed by the economic elite. The author compares and correlates the democratic and the moderate Irends in American social thought with the various trends in the European Enlightenment.

A. I. PERSHITZ. The Periodization of Primitive History

There are several kinds of periodization of primitive history: special (archeological, anthropological, etc.) and general, or general historic. While each of them has given rise to conflicting views and opinions, the problem of evolving a criterion of general periodization continues to present the greatest difficulties. For a number of researchers this criterion is the level of development of the productive forces, but they have to take into account not so much the absolute as the relative productive forces and, in the final analysis, renounce the monistic principle of periodization. More productive is the criterion of the development of production relations, but here too there are some controversial points, the most important of which are connected with the conception of the correlation of primitive history with the history of the primitive communal formation. Can we accept the view of some researchers that the earliest period of primitive history was a "preformation" and the final period - a peculiar "non- formation period"? The article shows the vulnerability of such views. There are also some other questions that are open to discussion, notably the correlation of historical, archeological and anthropological epochs. But notwithstanding all the divergences in interpreting the division of primitive history, the variants of periodization elaborated in Marxist science stand opposed to some of the schemes still widespread in the West, in which an attempt is made to undermine the general theory of formations by singling out stages in primitive history similar to the formation stages of class history.

Two hundred years ago, Faraday received a current with negative and positive charges, which is distributed in the layer of ether adjacent to the conductor. The one who does not know this is not worth going into the theory of electricity. The discovery is based on the realization that in the theory of electricity there is no extraneous force, instead of which an electromotive force acts, formed by the difference in electrical potentials, between the zero potential of the conductor and the negative (or positive) potential of the current source. This difference in electrical potentials creates in the circuit the force of motion of the charges. The difference of electric potentials creates a force, which may well be called Coulomb force. And then it is not clear why it was necessary to invent an outside force.

According to our hypothesis, the conversion of electrons and positrons into each other occurs by replacing the charge motion vector with the opposite vector. This is explained by the fact that all elements of the electron's magnetoelectric system are opposite to all elements of the positron's magnetoelectric system. And this opposite is determined by the vector of their movement in space. Therefore, it is only necessary to change the motion vector of one of the charges to the opposite vector, so immediately this charge turns into its antipode.

The article gives my short life story with a list of my discoveries. May the terrible moralists forgive me, I call these hypotheses discoveries because their logical connectedness and conformity with the materialistic dialectic of thinking does not allow to doubt that truth has been found here.

I wrote this article when I was 33, and I, who did not understand anything in physics, but who had logical thinking, were outraged by those alogisms and paradoxes that flowed from Einstein’s logic of relativity theory. But it was criticism at the level of emotions. Now, when I began to think a little bit in physics, and when I discovered the law of the difference of gravitational potentials, and based on it I built a five-dimensional frame of reference, it is now possible to prove the inaccuracy of Einstein’s theory of relativity at the level of physical laws.

istory make the masses. But the masses are ruled by leaders. The influence of an individual on the development of social processes is the greater, the greater the influence this personality has on the consciousness of individuals, as well as on the social consciousness of groups, classes and nations. The formula of Marx's social progress — the developing productive forces of society outgrow their production relations, throw them off and give birth to new ones — true, but only with Lenin's amendment: man is the main productive force of humanity.

The fundamental difference between a herd of animals and a human society is the presence of social laws formed by the consciousness of people in human society. Anthroposociogenesis is the process of forming into the consciousness of hominids of social laws, through the indefinite and combinational variability of genotypes with the elimination of those hominids that are not capable of subjecting their activity to laws.

Comparing all that is united by the concept of "mine" with all that is united by the concept of "not mine" the concept of "I" is born. Here begins the development of the individual consciousness of modern man, here began the development and individual consciousness of fossil people. It also began its development and public power, which initially could not have any other form, as soon as the form of protection of a mother who realized her motherhood to her children. Both individual consciousness and public power originate in the form of legal consciousness, and, first of all, in the form of awareness of the issues of belonging of certain objects to certain individuals, that is, in the form of awareness of the concepts "mine is not mine", "my child is not my child".

Dialectics is often called the tool of knowledge of nature. But, in the opinion of the author of this article, this tool is still as imperfect as the scissors would be imperfect, without the central screw uniting the two blades of this tool. This "cog" in dialectics is the fact that the "struggle" of opposites, which is the driving force behind the development of all processes of nature, is not absolute. "Struggle" is born when the dialectic system deviates from the state of equilibrium, and the goal of this "struggle" is to restore the lost equilibrium of the system.
