by Geoffrey Sawer
Professor of Law in the Australian National University
Commenting on Sir Ivor Jennings 's recently published study Constitutional Problems in Pakistan, Professor Sawer points to the use made by the Pakistani judges-in resolving the crisis of 1954-5 --of the specific technique and sources of the English common law. ' Thus we have the spectacle, extraordinary to many laymen, of Chief Justice Munir tracing the authority of Governor-General Ghulam Mohammad back to Wessex and King Arthur.'

Correspondence between Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hof mannsthal translated and introduced by Hanns Hammelmann
Reader, Leslie Stokes
The ' workshop' correspondence between Strauss and von Hofmannsthal offers an almost unique opportunity to follow in every detail the making of six major works which have become classics of the opera stage. Of these, Ariadne auf Naxos (to be broadcast tomorrow from Glyndebourne) was written during a troubled period in the collaboration between composer and librettist.
