From this material he produced four collections of essays, the most recent of which appeared in October 2017: "Does the United States Have a Future?"
"Mr. Doctorow’s next project will be a memoir of his corporate service in Moscow in the wild 1990s. Mr. Doctorow is an American citizen and a long-time resident of Brussels, Belgium. " Amazon bio
"Doctorow’s piece published at Consortium News on June 3, 2016, for instance, lauds a former-member of Poland’s fascist Association for Tradition and Culture “Niklot” named Mateusz Piskorski as “an outstanding spokesman of the minority view and founder of the Zmiana (or Change) party.” According to researcher of far-right networks, Anton Shekhovtsov, Zmiana is an attempt to “combine Polish right-wing and left-wing extremists,” and one of its leaders, Bartosz Bekier, also heads up Poland’s fascist Falanga."
