In “New Views” J. Taylor examines the constitutional law of the Supreme Court, being guided by original source material on the intent of the Framers. Consequently he comes to a conclusion that its original meaning was much distorted. In the course, the author reviews in detail the structure of constitutional order of the time. The views Taylor expresses here were new only to his contemporaries, and actually appear to be a return to the views of the men who wrote and confirmed the Constitution.
‘Nada the Lily’ is a historical novel written by famous English writer H. Rider Haggard. This novel is considered to be one of the best among his works. They say it was inspired by writer’s time spent in South Africa. ‘Nada the Lily’ is set at the time of the Zulu king named Chaka. The greater part of actions in this fantastic novel turn around him, but basically this book is the story about Umslopogaas, and his incredibly strong love for Nada, a native girl of great beauty. The story is narrated by Mopo, Nada’s father and Chaka’s doctor. During the course of the story Umslopogaas becomes friends with Galazi the Wolf. He lives on Ghost Mountain, and rules the wolf pack. Unfortunately, the story ends tragically. Nada, trying to escape the anger of Dingaan following the assassination of Chaka, takes a shelter in the cave on the mountain. Galazi dies trying to save her, but death finds Nada in the cave, which became her tomb. Nada couldn’t open the heavy stone door that she had closed behind her.

Anthony Shadid is a brilliant ‘Washington Post’ reporter and a long-time writer on the Middle East. He is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who has been covering the Iraq conflict since the time it has begun. In this book he adds those elements of the war that have been either censored or edited so that at last readers may have an intelligent observer's report of what has happened. This is a story that will disturb and enlighten. Shadid divides "Night Draws Near Iraqs People in the Shadow of Americas War" into five parts. In the first section he shows the anxious fear of people under the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein. In the second part it goes about people's terror of the attacks by the American troops with the bombings of precious places as well as homes. In the third part he addresses that part of disaster that follows disaster - the criminal marauding and devastation of museums and mosques and public facilities that most Iraqis viewed with embarrassed disgust. The fourth part reveals debased hopes of people told they were being liberated while instead they were captured, questioned, and disenfranchised. The final part studies the revolt, the terrifying extremes to which the Iraqis have come such as suicide bombings, retaliation, guerilla warfare - all of those ends to which these people have been thrust as a means to regain their dignity and identity. The book exposes the problems and facts that have always been hidden, and that’s one of the reasons why it should be read.
