A. K. BIRON and A. A. DRIZUL. Principal Trends in the Development of Historical Science in Soviet Latvia

The article characterizes the creative activity of historians in Soviet Latvia, analyzes historical research problems, illustrates the scientific and political significance of generalizing works on the history of the Latvian people. The authors note the achievements of Latvian historiography in the elaboration of agrarian history, including the history of the peasant movements, and in studying the history of the working class. Works devoted to such momentous events in the history of the Latvian people as the revolutionary movement of 1905 - 1907, the Great October Socialist Revolution, the establishment of Soviet government in Latvia in 1919, the socialist transformations effected in. 1940 - 1941, as well as to such an urgent and pressing theme as the activity of the Latvian Communist Party, have been published. The authors examine in general outline the contribution made by the Republic's archeologists, ethnographers and anthropologists to research into a number of important scientific problems and describe the assistance rendered Latvian scientists by "many central scientific-research institutions.

G. F. DACHSCHLEIGER. Kazakhstan on the Eve of NEP

The article examines the specific features of the socio-economic situation obtaining in Kazakhstan on the eve of transition to the new economic policy, analyzes the social structure of the Kazakh villages and resettlers' communities, shows the level of their ties with the market, the methods of solving the agrarian question, eliminating the pernicious colonial heritage in agrarian relations and paving the way for the Kazakh people's transition to socialism without going through the capitalist stage.

S. B. OKUN. Yuri Tynyanov's Historisrn

Analyzing Yuri Tynyanov's "The Death of VazirMukhtar" - one of the best Soviet historical novels written in the second half of the 1920's, the author believes that it is quite natural and logical to include the finest specimens of literary historical works in the range of problems studied by historiography. Setting forth the historical problems raised by Tynyanov, S. B. Okun convincingly shows that in his approach to the solution of a number of questions the writer forestalled many historians of his time and that some of his propositions became firmly established in Soviet historical, science twenty-Odd years after the appearance of the novel depicting A. S. Griboyedoy's diplomatic activity. This refers, in particular, to his treatment of the causes that "led to the assassination of A. S. Griboyedov, as well as of the letter's project for the organization of the Russian Transcaucasian Company. In the process of his analysis of the novel, S. B. Okun shows the utter insolvency of the accusations levelled against the author for many years (for instance, "the absence of a revolutionary historical perspective" in the novel). The author maintains that the problem concerning "the continuity of generations" is posed in Yuri Tynyanov's "The Death of Vazir-Mukhtar" in the same way as it was treated by A. I. Herzen in his work "The Development of the Revolutionary Ideas in Russia."

N. V. SIVACHOV. The Negro Question in the American Labour Movement (1919 - 1939)

The article examines the attitude of the various contingents of the American labour movement to the Negro question in the period between the two world wars. The author stresses that the Negroes constitute an integral part of the American nation. The article highlights the theoretical approach to the Negro question by the American labour movement and the attitude of America's trade unions and workers' parties to Negroes: the negative position of the American Federation of Labour towards the Negro workers, which resulted in the alienation of Negroes from this organization, and the extensive work carried out by the American Communist Party to draw the Negro masses into the Unions. In the 1930's the Communists and the Left forces in the Congress of Industrial (Organizations achieved tangible successes in this field, thereby contributing to the establishment, for the first time in American history, of close ties between the trade unions and the Negro, movement on the eve of the second world war.

A. N. KRASILNIKOV. Military-Political Doctrines of the British Ruling Circles After World War II

The article analyzes the specific features of the military-political doctrines and conceptions of the ruling circles of Britain from 1945 to our days. Showing the utter groundlessness of bourgeois leaders' assertions that the Soviet Union's aggressive postwar policy was allegedly responsible for the appearance of such doctrines, the author reveals the real causes that prompted the emergence and continuous replacement of these military-political doctrines in adaptation to the changed alignment of world forces. The author convincingly shows that their principal aim is to enable Britain to assume the role of the second leading power of the capitalist world after the United States. The article cites abundant data to show that Britain's aim in aspiring to the role of the second great military power is not to uphold universal peace, but to defend her imperialist, colonialist interests, to suppress the mounting national-liberation movement, to fight the Soviet Union and other socialist countries.

V. T. FOMIN. From the History of Fascist Germany's Preparation for Aggression Against the U.S.S.R.

The article describes the rabid campaign of slander, misinformation and deception launched by Hitler Germany on the eve of its perfidious attack against the U.S.S.R. The author graphically shows the active part played in this campaign, which was supported and encouraged by the reactionary element in Britain and the United States, by the press, radio and all the leading departments of nazi Germany (the General Staff, the intelligence service and the various Ministries). Much attention is devoted in the article to the sidetracking manoeuvre carefully planned by fascist Germany in 1940 - 1941, which played a conspicuous part in preparing its surprise attack on the U.S.S.R. In his polemic with G. Jacobaen, F. Ruge and other historians, who try to allege that the landing in Britain continued to figure prominently in Germany's military plans even after the surrender of France, the author draws on the documents of the German Supreme Command, the memoirs of nazi generals and other sources to prove that, whereas in the concluding stage of their war against France the nazis still intended to carry out Operation Sea Lion, in the subsequent period, notably in the early autumn of 1940, when the U.S.S.R. became the immediate target of its aggression, Hitler Germany gave up its contemplated landing in Britain. The fictitious preparations for the landing in Britain merely served as a diverting manoeuvre designed to mislead public opinion.

Y. I. SEMYONOV. The "Social Organism" Category and Its Significance for Historical Science

The article examines the concept of a concrete, individual society. This category, which the author proposes to designate "social organism" and which is practically used by all historians, is still inadequately elaborated theoretically. The author makes an attempt to disclose the concept of "social organism," to establish its correlation with other concepts, primarily with the category of "socio-economic formation," for which purpose he traces the development of social organisms from the origin of human society to our days. He shows that the concept of "social organism" enables the historian to analyze individual societies from the viewpoint of their internal structure and their relations with one another. According to the forms of men's activity within social organisms, the author divides the latter into social-community, social- political and transitional between the first and the second, according to internal structure-into federative and unitary, according to the forms of their interrelation-into independent, autonomous systems of social organisms and their federations. Proceeding from this premise, the author interprets history as a science studying the development of social organisms, their systems, confederations, federations and, lastly, the whole of society as a product of their combination.

BOTO BRACHMAN and HERMANN SCHREIER. Documentation-Minimum or Maximum?

The authors hold that the problems of source research and archive-keeping discussed on the pages of our journal are of great urgency and significance for historical science and archive-keeping in the German Democratic Republic. Proceeding from the experience gained by G.D.R. historians and archive-keepers, B. Brachman and H. Schreier express their views on a number of questions raised by M. S. Selezney and M. N. Chernomorsky in their article "Certain Questions of Establishing a Source Research Basis on the History of Soviet Society" (published in "Problems of History" No. 9, 1965). The authors draw the following basic conclusion: it is necessary to strive for minimum documentation which, at the same time, includes a certain maximum, the decisive factor, being to keep archive documents and records well preserved.

The first thing that inspired me to this discovery is the shock that the researchers of superconductivity experience. And this is understandable. If the conduction current is formed by free electrons, then why does superconductivity increase when free electrons practically disappear, freezing to atoms. Secondly, this is the obstinacy of the Russian scientist, Dr. Fedyukin Veniamin Konstantinovich, who doubted that superconductivity exists. He writes: “Proceeding from the general scientific, ideological position and practice that there is opposition to every action and there is resistance to any movement, it can be argued that resistance and electric current along the conductor should be. Therefore, the so-called "superconductivity" electric current is not, and can not be. "

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.
