[Marxism] Ricardo Duchesne

This almost reminds me of  A. James Gregor,  who back in the '60's  wrote *A Survey of Marxism: Problems in Philosophy and the Theory of History* which was a reasonably competent survey exposition of Marxist thought with particular emphasis on the intellectual development of Marx & Engels and on Soviet philosophy. He also had some interesting things to say on the role of Pavlov's psychology in Soviet Marxism-Leninism. The book cover's profile of Gregor mentioned that he had published articles in Science & Society amongst other places which is curious given his far right associations. He was also described as having served as a lecturer on Marxism for the Peace Corps. Apparently this guy has always had interesting associations. On the basis of a web search I learned that he is considered a leading revisionist historian of Mussolini and Italian Fascism which he regards as having been a genuinely revolutionary movement with a rigorous and compelling intellectual foundation. Apparently for Gregor, old Benito wasn't such a bad guy. Gregor is also the author of a number of academic studies of US foreign policy in relation to such areas as China and Taiwan and Yugoslavia.

multiculturalism[17][18][19] and political correctness in academe.[20]
Since the publication of his 2011 book, Duchesne has been arguing that the
multicultural interpretation of the West is part of a wider effort by
established elites to create heterogeneous race-mixed societies inside all
European-created nations through the promotion of mass immigration."

My comment:  Let me make a wild crazy guess:  His career has taken off.
