samisdat.info is a home for samizdat, preserving and archiving research, materials and publications - especially books - which are either out-of-print, out-of-copyright, no-longer available or very difficult to find, with a view to saving content from the memory hole. samisdat.info was created by independent individuals privately concerned about the creeping censorship on popular social media and website platforms.
Any materials uploaded to this website are not necessarily endorsements of the content contained within - it is made available here primarily because it is material that is often difficult to obtain and relevant to researchers.
On the gulag of social-media it may seem like a big free-for-all but people are actually scared to say what they really think, they are afraid, even if it's objective truth because within the walled-gardens of the big-players (google, facebook, twitter etc) there are rules of engagement and the right to free-speech and expression (UN: Universal Declaration of Human Rights) just isn't one of them. So that's why we created this website, it's our own space on the web.
We are just ordinary living flesh and blood people (not 'corporate' persons!) with an interest and passion for finding stuff out and why things are the way that they are in this world. We are private individual, independent people experiencing reality, ready to formulate what we experience and share that. We neither claim nor speak for any group, we only speak for ourselves. We believe that people who claim a right to speak on behalf of others or put themselves as a representative of a grouping of people should be carefully observed and scrutinized in their words, actions and behaviours.
We know that that this will not satisfy those who are unable to process this work, so before rushing to attack, please understand name-calling, swearing, labelling, snarky 'jokes' and smearing people with untruths then tagging/retweeting to get more people to send targeted abuse and so forth at people is not grown-up and it's not cool. (Besides, we have DDOS protection!) If you can't engage with us in a civil manner, please just block/ignore us, go to another website, or just do not read-on, please do not harass us and respect our God-given Natural Law human-right to free thought, expression and speech.
samisdat.info will only ever collect and process data about website visitors that is necessary to maintain the privacy, security and performance of the website, and as such we do not track users via cookies for advertising, google analytics, facebook etc.
We consider the material published here to be covered by fair use provisions for criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research and do not seek to profit from it. All of the books uploaded are assumed to be in the public-domain as they were found on public websites and sources, the vast majority taken mostly from, but not limited-to The Internet Archive.
