The people’s actor

September 25th, 2016|

Review by Maheen A. Rashdi published in Dawn, Books & Authors, September 25, 2016.

A. J. P. Taylor: someone we should know

September 6th, 2016|

Going through the book English History 1914-1945 by A. J. P. Taylor a few years ago, I was happily surprised to see that according to him, the years immediately following the First World War were happy times. This is contrary to the general belief today.

Naturalism and twentieth century literature

April 5th, 2001|

This article was published in Dawn, The Review, sometime in April 2001. It was based on the postulate of Ayn Rand that the only fundamental alternative is non-existence or existence.
