This book includes 42 messages drafted during the first seven weeks (June 23 to August 12) after publication of "America the Great," which the author of "America the Great" sent to various groups of persons he thought would be interested in reading "America the Great." Some of the earliest messages are to persons in Scotland and the United Kingdom, because of the September 2014 Scotland Independence Referendum, to note the argument in "America the Great" concerning the legal and practical possibility of joining the United States rather than the European Union. Several of the messages – the longest ones – are to professors and experts in the fields of political science and law in non-United States countries – especially in countries threatened by the current government of mainland China, including Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, the Philippines, and Australia. As he neared the end of the process of drafting these, it occurred to the author that a collection of the messages could be of interest to the general world-wide public. The message to the Philippines, which closes this collection, is perhaps the most important, due to its discussion of naval military issues, and ought also to be read by Australians as if directed to them. New Zealanders should consider the Australian and Philippines messages as also directed to them. The author has added a 27 page addendum concerning the sources of his assertion of expertise in military and diplomatic strategy. This addendum is original material not in "America the Great" and not included in any of the messages.

Newspaper Reading Habits in Hyderabad Secunderabad

No doubt, theoretically,- the want of time could certainly be an obstacle to regular newspaper reading. In most cases, however, it should be safe to presume, it is not a genuine excuse, the real reason being lack of enough interest.

Begun in 2010 as part of the “Histories of Literatures in European Languages” series sponsored by the International Comparative Literature Association, the current project on New Literary Hybrids in the Age of Multimedia Expression recognizes the global shift toward the visual and the virtual in all areas of textuality: the printed, verbal text is increasingly joined with the visual, often electronic, text. This shift has opened up new domains of human achievement in art and culture. The international roster of 24 contributors to this volume pursue a broad range of issues under four sets of questions that allow a larger conversation to emerge, both inside the volume’s sections and between them. The four sections cover, 1) Multimedia Productions in Theoretical and Historical Perspective; 2) Regional and Intercultural Projects; 3) Forms and Genres; and, 4) Readers and Rewriters in Multimedia Environments. The essays included in this volume are examples of the kinds of projects and inquiries that have become possible at the interface between literature and other media, new and old. They emphasize the extent to which hypertextual, multimedia, and virtual reality technologies have enhanced the sociality of reading and writing, enabling more people to interact than ever before. At the same time, however, they warn that, as long as these technologies are used to reinforce old habits of reading/ writing, they will deliver modest results. One of the major tasks pursued by the contributors to this volume is to integrate literature in the global informational environment where it can function as an imaginative partner, teaching its interpretive competencies to other components of the cultural landscape.
