This diary-based autobiography illustrates his ideological evolution from one extreme (a devoted Stalinist) to another (an active anticommunist). He hopes that someone will review this book soon, either at this forum or elsewhere. Contact him in private, if you are interested. Reviews of several readers can be seen at amazon.com .
Ludwik's email address is available at this website.
He and his wife, Linda, live in Fort Lee, close to New York City. Born in 1931, Ludwik is still able to enjoy downhill skiing, walking, sweeming, and traveling. On August 7, 2010 he became a grandfather, for the first time.
Educated in the Soviet Union (elementary school, until 1946), in Poland (high school and master's degree), and in France (Ph.D. in nuclear physics), he came to the United States in 1964. Ludwik Kowalski is also the author and co-author of about one hundred scientific publications, plus one elementary physics textbook.
Since retiring, in 2004, he has been involved in four kinds of activity:
A) Reading and thinking about education, especially in connection with negative aspects of computer-based artificial intelligence. He believes that learning must be a pleasure-giving activity.
B) Investigations of so-called cold fusion, as shown at

C) Sharing what he knows and think about Stalinism. The first book is dedicated to his father who died in a Siberian labor camp, at the age of 36
D) Writing and publishing short articles on various topics. Some of these are posted at his own website, others are published as OpEdNews items.

Communism is not Stalinism, they often say. But data from the first implementation of proletarian dictatorship are worth examining (instead of ignoring).
