Robert is a retired mechanical engineer who worked mostly in design of power stations, both fossil-fired and nuclear. His early career was in the aerospace industry where he was an analyst for the design of aircraft (747 jetliner), military rocket launcher, gas turbine engines and rapid transit rail cars. In 1999 he took early retirement and started a new career as a human rights theorist where he applied his skill in analysis to the issues of human rights and political theory. His second book "Governance for a New Era" was self-published in 2020 and is available in Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian.
"…Ljudska prava,Sto su ona zapravo?Tu je siroki- krug diskusija i trebalo bi biti potrebno, i ukljuceno u Americku skolsku nauku skupa sa socialnom i politickom predavanjima sve od srednje skole pa nadalje." D.Donovan, Recenzent Senior, Midwest Book Reviews
「這本書之前以《新時代的政府》(Governance for a New Era)（第1版）出版。第2版對書名作出了更改，書本內容也稍作修改以配合新書名。
The failure of governments to solve serious problems of wealth concentration, fantastic government debt, uncontrolled migrations and insidious ideology indicates that the reinvention of government is due. The book presents new formative theorems in political science and a full political constitution that demonstrate the principles for proper government that can spawn a new era.
Governance for a New Era looks on modern democracies as manifestations of a particular political-social ideology and presents governance as it would be without ideology or religious prescription. Three new theorems in political science are presented and form the basis of a concept called "proper government". A full political constitution demonstrates this concept and the making of a new era.
The book informs on what human rights really are and on false notions that have been confusing the world.
From 'Recommended Reading – Donovan’s Bookshelf', May 2020 issue- "Human Rights, What Are They Really? is a wide-ranging discussion that should be essential, required reading for American history, social and political studies, and debate courses from the high school level on up."
