Things will be quiet for the next couple of weeks while we're in America. Normal posting will resume in August.

I saw the insult you left about me at McDuff's. SOAS is ranked very highly in history. My internal examiner was Geoffry Hosking at SSEES and my external one Stefan Wolff at Bath. Why don't you write to them about what you consider the poverty of my dissertation which you have not read. Neither asked me to make any revisions. A very unusual occurrene. I did the Ph.D. in two years.

I am willing to put my academic credentials against yours anyday. I will be in London in November for an academic conference at SOAS. You can see me deliver a paper there and insult me to my face.

I have two published academic books, numerous journal articles and have been invited to speak at the LOC. My first book was even cited extensively in Applebaum's _Gulag_ which one the Pulitzer Prize and both my books are cited extensively in Richard Overy's _Dictators_.

The bibliographic information for my books is below.

J. Otto Pohl, _The Stalinist Penal System_ (Jefferson, NC: McFarland, 1997).

J. Otto Pohl, _Ethnic Cleansing in the USSR, 1937-1949_ (Westport, CT: Greenwood, 1999).

Don't worry. Your imperfections make you more human.
