Prof. Paul Cutter… A brief biographic sketch
The professor of politics grew up on the family farmstead in Midwestern America, farmed as a boy on the family farmstead in Iowa, active in sports: played football and golf in high school and college; from his very early boyhood days was an avid hunter, trapper, and fisherman, immensely enjoyed the outdoors, wilds, and the Open Spaces. He studied politics and comparative government at the universities of Iowa and California, graduated from ROTC as an officer and gentleman, lectured at the University of California, and served in the military, which concurrently led to the long-term deep-sink clandestine monitoring mission in Russia of the awesome Soviet military machine, heading the Kishlak & Erma subterranean secreted high-tech operations centers [C5I exotic operational nexus of “command, control, communications, countermeasures, counter-countermeasures and intelligence” dimensions in Siberia & Soviet Central Asia,1961-85: the leading high-tech military surveillance center in the world, a cutting edge island of technology stuck deep behind the enemy lines inside the 7th continent – the Ice Continent of Siberia, territorially larger than Europe including continental Russia and the North American continent combined].
Some of the initial academic writings included: PROG-RESS and IDEOLOGY in the USSR (Washington: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1965), an early study of communist pluralism, the Symposium published as a book in 32 major languages and distributed worldwide in over 2 million copies; UNOFFICIAL ART in the SOVIET UNION (Berkeley-London: University of California Press & Cambridge University Press, 1967), a seminal academic work on the famous Russian Creative Intelligentsia and the dissident movement, in the Khrushchev postwar era; the volume's salient task: theoretical and practical dismantling of Socialist Realism, which it basically accomplished, widely reprinted at home and abroad, i.e. the book was featured at the time on the cover of the popular and authoritative New York Review of Books.
And more recently, GESTALT HEGEMONY—American Democracy on Rampage (Hong Kong-London-New York, 1999), a hard cover, 500 pp edition, underscoring the adverse sociopolitical ramifications for modern society, emanating from the proliferation of the gestaltic dominance doctrine, criticizing the ongoing globalization drive, integration, and pacification process by the Anglo-Saxon ruling elite; plus condemnation of the March-June 1999 illegal Air War over Kosovo (Serbia), as a vivid apotheosis of this quintessential political theory, a controversial volume to say the least: and, DOMINANCE: Racial and Cultural Origins—Devastating Ramifications for Society at large (Hong Kong, 2000), capturing the decades-long period in serious study of the Anglo-Saxon totalitarian state model, which was propounded the GENERAL ENGAGEMENT OPERATIONS (GEO) Doctrine of USAF-RAF bombing sprees all over the planetary meridians, the last such doctrine of the terrible 20th century of conflict and mayhem perpetrated on the—somehow, still unsuspecting—international society at large?! Therefrom, the title of this empirical study and first hand experiences out in the field during the Cold War, 1961-85: OPEN SPACES—Conflict & Resolution, in 3 volumes (expected release, Fall-Winter 2010, the Russian language edition, while the original version written in English is expected sometime in thereafter). This trilogy on the Cold War is a seminal work on East-West relations and millennial conflict between the East & West, still in progress.
Prof. Cutter now writes profusely and critically on East-West pathos, decline, dominance, globalization, aggrandizement, conflict & resolution, and serves as senior adviser to governments and industry. He lives with his native Russian wife (a painter) in Montenegro, while the Cutters still maintain Stateside interests.
