by Terence Morris

Dr Morris examines the paradox of increasing crime and rising standards of living and social welfare. He suggests a partial explanation in the existence of a handicapped class who feel the stick of competition but for whom the carrot is for ever out of reach.

by Boris Pasternak Reader, Marius Goring
Thirty years ago Pasternak wrote Safe Conduct, which he now describes as an experiment in autobiography. In the middle 'fifties, after finishing Dr.
Zhivago, he wrote a new autobiographical essay. It has not been published in the U.S.S.R., but has recently come out in an English translation by Manya Harari. The extracts to be read are Pasternak's reminiscences of the day Tolstoy died and of the composer Scriabin.
