About meMy name is T.J. and I live in Winnipeg, MB with my wife and Ball Python (Penny). We’re a working-class couple interested in world affairs, politics, history, economics, the labour movement, and most importantly, the overthrow of capitalism and the victory of the proletariat over the bourgeoisie! ☭

As well as reading about the world, I am a prolific writer about current events. Articles and papers I have written have been published or cited by various NGOs, magazines, newspapers, etc., including People’s Voice, Rebel Youth, the New Worker, the Guardian, the Centre for Research on Globalization, the Prometheus Institute, Dissident Voice, CounterPunch, Press TV, the International Model United Nations Association, and the Centre for Land and Warfare Studies. You can read some of my writings and book reviews on my website at

About my libraryAll the books in my LT library are books I currently own; if I don’t physically own it, it isn’t in our LT library. The books I own are overwhelmingly nonfiction, and are loosely and broadly tagged according to subject and organized into collections based on the area of the world under examination or some other important categorization to me (ex. a favourite publisher, or favourite subject).

My major library strengths are (in no order):

--> Ethnic and secessionist conflicts (including Nagorno-Karabakh, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Chechnya, Transnistria, Somaliland, Ogaden, the Chagos Islands, Oromia, Western Sahara, Northern Cyprus, West Papua, the former Yugoslavia, the Falkland Islands, Palestine, Kashmir, Balochistan, Northern Ireland, Biafra, Gorno-Badakhshan, South Sudan, etc.).

--> Afghanistan and Central Asia (especially Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, both as Soviet Socialist Republics and later as independent states).

--> Books published in or about the USSR (especially Soviet nationalities policy and national territorial delimitation).

--> The international communist movement and communist parties (including in Canada, the U.S., South Africa, Greece, Spain, Iraq, Sudan, Nepal, India, Cuba, Russia, China, etc.)

--> Anti-colonial and anti-imperialist national liberation movements (including in Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde, Ghana, the Congo, Eritrea, East Timor, Mozambique, Angola, Namibia, Bangladesh, Kenya, Vietnam, Algeria, etc.)

--> The international labour movement and struggles against capitalism (including the On-to-Ottawa Trek, the Battle of Blair Mountain, the Winnipeg General Strike, the Workers’ Unity League, the Estevan Massacre, the Chinese labour movement, Cape Breton coal miners, etc.)
