Robert Skidelsky - Keynes Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Robert Skidelsky's "Keynes: The Return of the Master" shows how the great economist's ideas not only explain why the current financial crisis occurred - but are our best way out. "One would expect brokers to be wrong. If, in addition to their other inside advantages, they were capable of good advice, clearly they would have retired long ago with a large fortune". (John Maynard Keynes). When unbridled capitalism falters, is there an alternative? The twentieth century's most influential economist tells us that there is. John Maynard Keynes argued that an unmanaged market system is inherently unstable because of irreduceable uncertainty; that fiscal and monetary ammunition is needed to counter economic shocks; and that governments need to maintain enough total spending power in the economy to minimize the chance of serious recessions happening. "The great economist's theories have never been more relevant ...and Robert Skidelsky is the guide of choice...A must read". (Paul Krugman, "Observer"). "Keynes's economic policies helped lift Britain from its 1930s slump. This accessible, timely study argues he could do the same again". (Dominic Lawson, "Sunday Times"). "Masterly ...conveys complex ideas with clarity and controlled anger". (Oliver Kamm, "The Times"). "Skidelsky knows more about Keynes than anyone alive ...he is righteous in his thunder ...provocative ...refreshing". (Dwight Gardner, "The New York Times"). "Thought-provoking ...the best account I have read of the development of the credit crunch". (Samuel Brittan, "Financial Times"). Robert Skidelsky is Emeritus Professor of Political Economy at the University of Warwick. His three volume biography of the economist John Maynard Keynes (1983, 1992, 2000) received numerous prizes, including the Lionel Gelber Prize for International Relations and the Council on Foreign Relations Prize for International Relations. He is also the author of the "The World After Communism" (1995).

Excerpt from Regulatory Consolidation Proposals for Insured Depository Institutions: Hearing Before the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, United States Senate, One Hundred Third Congress, First Session September 14, 1993 The committee met at 10 a.m., in room 538 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Senator Donald W. Riegle, Jr. (chairman of the committee) presiding. Opening Statement Of Chairman Donald W. Riegle, Jr. The Chairman. The committee will come to order. Let me welcome all those in attendance this morning. I want to indicate at the outset that our first witness this morning is scheduled to be Chairman Henry Gonzalez from the House Banking Committee, and we've received indication that the House may very shortly have a vote and he was hoping to make that vote and then come on over. So I am going to start the hearing. We've got a panel of very distinguished witnesses that I want to comment on more fully just a little later. But I want to make my opening statement and call on Senator Bennett for his comments. At the point Chairman Gonzalez arrives, I'm just going to break the process and invite him to go ahead and present his testimony. We will proceed in that fashion and try to accommodate as best we can to the situation. This morning the committee is here to consider the need to consolidate the bank regulatory agencies into a new independent structure. I believe this issue must be addressed in the administration's ongoing efforts to reinvent Government, a topic very much in the news at the moment. Currently, four different agencies regulate Fdic-insured depository institutions. They are the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Reserve Board, the Fdic, and the Office of Thrift Supervision. This system is costly, it's burdensome and inefficient. I think it's out of date and must be reengineered and modernized. Reforming our bank and financial regulatory bureaucracy is something that is long overdue and now is the time to address this issue head on. We have a new administration committed to change and change in the structure of Government, banks and thrifts are posting record profits, and both the Congress and the administration are committed to cost saving, deficit reduction, and in general a more efficient Government.

Caravan - The Story Of Middle East Read Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

CARAVAN: THE STORY Of THE MIDDLE EAST by CARLETON S. COON. FOREWORD: No MAN COULD HOPE to draw together the various fields from which the materials of this book are derived if he were a scholar in any one of them. No one could feel less scholarly than I do. This becomes particularly evident when the subject of Arabic transliteration arises, as it always does in forewords to books on the Middle East. I have before me the handiwork of Hitti, Gibb, and Calverley, three men whose erudition and integrity are of the highest order, and yet I cannot find complete agreement among them. Take the word for judge. Hitti spells it qadi, Gibb adlf and Calverley qadl. At this point the lay reader may exclaim, So what? but the lay reader does not review these books. To the myopic dotter of i's and Crosser of t's, a dot under a consonant or a macron over a vowel are matters of utmost importance. The presence or absence of a dot under the k will distinguish between the word for heart and that for dog. Only a heartless dog would countenance such confusion. To avoid it I sought the aid of a most kindly and scholarly gentle man who has much more to offer than spelling: Dr. E. E. Calverley of the Hartford Seminary Foundation, editor of the Muslim World, a man of profound erudition and wisdom, as well as long editorial experience. He read the manuscript from beginning to end. His polite but firmly expressed corrections appeared on many pages, and not one of them has been ignored. He has grasped my arm on the brink of many a pitfall, theological and historical as well as ortho graphic. If despite his efforts I may be shown to have fallen in here and there, please be assured that I have not drawn him with me. For a scholar of his stature to have had the grace to bother with this work places him beyond the level of possible contamination. ....

DCS Puccini U-Clock dCS

Odtwarzacze/CD

Puccini U-Clock black | silver Puccini is a revelation - a high end system in one box - combining the aesthetics of the Paganini with all of our upsampling, DAC and CD/SACD player technology in a single, easy to set up unit which delivers unbeatable performance. The Puccini range now features a patent pending (GB0817141.5) Puccini U-Clock which is separate grade 1 system clock to further reduce jitter and improve performance. Puccini U-Clock also features a USB to SPDIF converter, which enables Puccini owners to present sound files from a PC or Mac to the legendary dCS Ring DAC inside the Puccini. dCS equipment is designed to generate and accept industry standard Word Clock on 75 ohm co-axial cable. Our Clocks will drive other manufacturers' equipment designed to accept standard Word Clock. Non-standard clock formats must be assumed to be proprietary to that manufacturer. Asynchronous USB Mode In USB, there are numerous modes for synchronising the audio between the PC (the host), and an audio device. The most popular of these, "adaptive", involves the audio device synchronising itself to the USB "frame" provided by the PC. This tends to give poor jitter performance. Puccini U-Clock operates in "asynchronous" mode (NOT to be confused with asynchronous rate conversion), where the audio device synchronises the audio by providing a feedback pipe to the PC. The PC then is effectively locked to the audio device, which can have a much more accurate clock and much lower jitter. Using the Puccini U-Clock USB is isochronous. This means that the host (PC) and client (Puccini U-Clock) both know how much bandwidth is available at the outset, so the host can guarantee that bandwidth will be available all the time. Your music may be stored on a large Hard Disc Drive (HDD) in a different room, linked by WiFi to a small, silent device (such as a laptop) connected by USB cable to the Puccini U-Clock. When the user selects the audio for playback, the Mac/PC streams all of the selected data from the HDD or Network Assigned Storage (NAS) device, then outputs the data on USB. Note: The audio flowing between the PC and Puccini U-Clock is packetised PCM at 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2 or 96kS/s. It is the job of the codecs installed on the PC to decode the data and present it to Puccini U-Clock in a standard PCM format. For more information on connecting your U-Clock to a PC or Mac see our FAQ section. See the Puccini U-Clock set-up sheet for more information on how to integrate it with your current sources. Key Features Puccini Clock is a grade 1 system clock, featuring 4 word clock outputs. Allows Puccini owners to play sound files from a PC via the dCS Ring DAC on board the Puccini. Asynchronous USB mode prevents the source injecting jitter into DAC. High grade aluminium chassis and laminated acoustic damping panels to reduce magnetic effects and vibration. Technical specifications: Type System Clock Finish options Silver or Black Dimensions (W) 460mm x (D) 410mm x (H) 58mm (W) 18.1" x (D) 16.2" x (H) 2.3" Allow extra depth for cable connectors Weight 7.6 kg / 16.7 lbs.

Untold Valor Potomac Books Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

For the men of the Army Air Corps in early World War II, the chance of surviving the obligatory twenty-five missions without death, injury, or imprisonment was one in three. In this groundbreaking book, Rob Morris has sought out remarkable but little-known stories of the air war from the men who lived and fought it. Based on hundreds of interviews with American veterans and their families, "Untold Valor" illuminates the courage of airmen whose exploits have until now remained untold. Read about Jewish aviators' experiences as POWs in German camps. Learn about American airmen who were imprisoned, even killed, by the neutral Swiss and about two Air Corps enlisted men who changed U.S. policy toward liberated concentration camp survivors. Also discover the unusual story of Luftwaffe commander Herman Goering's nephew, who flew B-17 missions against Germany. While some of the stories cover major events, most are about incidents and individuals misrepresented or overlooked by history books. Yet their efforts were vital, their lives forever changed. Detailed and moving, "Untold Valor" is certain to interest the serious air historian and the casual reader alike. It contains a foreword by the editor of B - 17s Over Europe. The men of the U.S. Army Air Corps in the European Theater suffered more casualties than the Navy and Marine Corps combined in World War II. Early on, the chance of surviving the obligatory twenty-five missions with death, injury, or imprisonment was one in three. The success of daylight bombing was very much in doubt. Yet it was these young men - boys really - who proved that mere human beings could push themselves to do super-human feats of strength and courage. Many never came home. Those who did were forever changed by the experience. They knew they had done something special, and they forged bonds with their comrades that have lasted to this day. Now, the passage of years is taking the last of these men from us. I guess that's what prompted me to write this book. I've been interested in World War II aerial combat sine age nine or ten, and one day I realized that there were a lot of stories that were going to disappear like the morning fog unless somebody wrote them down. I couldn't write them all, but I could go out and find a few. That would be my way of thanking those who risked everything for their country more than sixty years ago. But what to write? I read numerous accounts of the air war over the years, and it seemed like there was no shortage of excellent eyewitness accounts of aerial combat. I didn't want to cover what had already been done, and done so well, by those who had actually been there. I decided to branch out and find stories that had not been told, or had been told but were not part of the mainstream historical record on the air war. I began to look for stories that touched on universal themes of human existence, things like faith, courage, love, devotion, and perseverance. Guided by men who shared my interest, I found individuals all over the United States who had stories about aspects of the air war that I had never heard about before. I talked to Jewish aviators who ended up as POWs in German camps. I found out what happened to the many individuals who ended up interned in Switzerland or Sweden. I researched the stories of the men who died training to defend their country but never made it to combat. I searched the back corners of the historical closet for stories that added to the historiography of the air war, rather than repeated what already existed.

History and Traditions of Ravenstonedale, Westmorland (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The History and Traditions of Ravenstonedale, Westmorland I had intended to publish my researches into the various features of the tradition and history of Ravenstonedale, rearranged, and composed in a written rather than a spoken style; but, after mature consideration, I have determined, for several reasons, to present my lectures to the public in the style in which they were delivered, except that they have undergone careful revision, and several additions have been made to them which could not be introduced when they were delivered for want of time. I gladly avail myself of this opportunity of expressing my obligations to the Rev. R. Robinson, of Mallerstang; Mr. John Robinson, of Ash Fell, who is in possession of some of the most important MSS.; but most of all to Mr. A. Metcalfe, of Park House, who was my chairman each evening, and through whose invariable kindness; and courtesy I have been able to obtain much of the information contained in the following lectures. To my critics I may say that I am responsible for the blunders, and that my rushing into print has not arisen from the cacoethes scribendi of which one has so often heard, and the disease from which one would wish to be free, but from the desire to comply with the unanimous request of a crowded audience to which the last lecture was delivered, and to preserve, if possible, in a permanent form, facts and traditions which might otherwise be lost to the finest drag-net of any chronicler who might come at all remotely after me. The following record is a contribution to English history, although an atom, still an atom, and so a part of the mass, and thus furnishing the reader with an insight into the self-contained and independent rule in some of the more highly favoured dales, such as Ravenstonedale was. In the Appendix the reader will find some notes containing valuable information. My aim has been to notice the facts connected with the parish which have been hitherto unrecorded.

J. S. Bach: Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin brilliant classics

Nagrania>Nagrania muzyczne

Bach may well be one of the most widely acknowledged master composers of all time, but that only serves to make each performer's interpretation of his work all the more challenging and distinctive: each musician must both do justice to the composer's intention, making a decision as to the best way of conveying that within the music which is not fixed, and at the same time leave their own mark on the performance. This is especially true for these Sonatas and Partitas given the variety of styles in which such Baroque masterworks have been performed, ranging from the freely romantic to the strictly precise, and the technical challenge posed by these complex pieces for a single instrument.The works in this collection are something of an enigma, not only because of the uncertainty surrounding the circumstances and date of their composition, but, more crucially, because of the way in which they stretch the capacity for polyphony of a single violin beyond its physical limit. It is as though Bach had written for a full ensemble of instruments -- but on a single staff. Modern musicians have even speculated as to the possible existence of a special bow with which an exact performance of the music might have been achieved in Bach's day. The music is no less rich for all of this, however: on the contrary, the harmonic complexity of these pieces is at once captivating and beautiful; the implied but absent notes are thrillingly suggestive; and the multiplicity of voices leaves the listener marvelling at Bach's compositional vision and the performer's ability.This accomplished musical feat is performed by Kristóf Baráti, a Hungarian violinist who has worked with an astonishing number of world-famous orchestras and conductors. Baráti plays a 1703 Stradivarius violin, and one can sense this echo of the era of the pieces as much as one can his intense emotional involvement with the music.Other information:- Recorded 7--12 September 2009, Siemens-Villa, Berlin.- The star of the young Hungarian violinist Kristóf Baráti is quickly rising. Having won several important international competitions (the most recent first prize at the prestigious Paganini Competition in Moscow) he plays with important orchestras and conductors, like Charles Dutoit, Kurt Masur, Iván Fischer, Yuri Temirkanov and Marek Janowski. His recent recording of Beethoven's complete violin sonatas with Klára Würtz received rave reviews: "5 stars...a great duo, comparable with Perlman/Ashkenazy, Grumiaux/Haskil, Ferras/Barbizet' (Diapason), "A talent that comes along once in a decade, perhaps once in a generation, I don't say it lightly, but once you've heard Baráti and Würtz you'll never listen to anyone else again" (Fanfare).- Includes a note on interpretation from the artist as well as an artist biography/comprehensive liner notes in both English and German.- This recording of the great solo Bach was issued on Berlin Classics in 2009, and shows the sovereign command over the matter, and a deep understanding of the spirit of these masterworks....

Excerpt from West Virginia Geological Survey, Vol. 1: Petroleum and Natural Gas, Precise Levels To His Excellency, Albert B. White, Governor of West Virginia, and President of the Geological Survey Commission: Sir: - I have the honor to transmit herewith a supplementary Report on Petroleum and Natural Gas entitled Volume One A. The edition of Volume One on this subject had become entirely exhausted, and as the Survey received frequent requests for the same, the Commission authorized the publication of this supplementary volume to supply the demand in question. Then, too, the Survey has collected many valuable records of oil and gas well borings in the several regions of the State, the publication of which will prove of great value not only to those connected with oil and gas developments, but also to those interested in coal, since these records give exact measurements through the several geological formations, and in a more or less accurate manners indicate the presence or absence of valuable coal beds, together with their depths below the surface, and approximate thickness. The publication of these records is necessary for their preservation beyotid the possibility of loss as well as to place them in a form available for use, and their value to the citizens of the State both now and for the future, fully warrants the comparatively small expense of printing. In the preparation of the text of this Report, the previous Volume One has been drawn upon quite freely, since much of it is of ever permanent interest, but the well records with a very few exceptions, are entirely new. Those added from Pennsylvania are published because they are contiguous to the West Virginia oil fields, and tend to aid our operators in their tireless search for these buried treasures which have added so much to the wealth and prosperity of the State. The Publication Committee has contracted for an edition of 5,000 copies of this report, 3334 copies of which are to be bound in cloth and the remainder in paper, and the Commission has fixed the price at $1.00 per copy for the paper binding, and $1.25 per copy for the cloth, delivered free to the purchaser by mail or express.

Excerpt from Proceedings, 1886 Early in December 1885 the compiler of this pamphlet received a letter from Hon. L. M. Sellers suggesting a Legislative Reunion and requesting a computation which would show by estimate the number of members and ex-members of the Michigan Legislature then living. Hastily such an estimate was prepared and forwarded, but its figures were far from correct, the average Michigan Legislator is long-lived and it is now believed that near one thousand are still in the land of the living, and that the biennial death rate has been less than three percent, instead of five as there given. On December 30th., 1885, the following appeared in the Cedar Springs Clipper. Hon. L. M. Sellers, editor: Legislative Reunion. "It has been suggested by a few of "the boys" that a reunion of the past and present members of the Michigan Legislature be held at the State Capital - city of Lansing - some time in May, 1886, for the consideration of matters social and historical, and to revive old memories and renew old acquaintances - a grand good time. To get at the number of living members and ex-members of the Senate and House, suppose we may say that each Legislature contains 15 per cent, of the preceding one, and that the biennial death ratio is 5 percent., our figures would stand about as follows: 1849-3; 1851-4; 1853-4; 1855-5; 1857-7; 1859-9; 1861-10; 1863-11; 1865-13; 1867-18; 1869-22; 1871-28; 1873-36; 1875-43; 1877-53; 1879-67; 1881-84; 1883-104; 1885-132; a total of 654. In perfecting such organizations it is customary to have the oldest member president with one vice-president and assistant secretary from each county, and the Secretary of the Senate as secretary, and the Clerk of the House as corresponding secretary, one treasurer, and in executive committee of five; and last, but not least, taxing each member who attends one dollar to defray incidental expenses. The editor of the Clipper has been invited by other members of the honorable body to suggest a reunion of this kind so that the state press might give it publicity and ascertain the sentiment of all concerned. For the furthering of the reunion we know of no one better fitted to lead off than the Hon. Daniel L. Crossman, of Williamston, Chief Clerk of the House. He is capable and courteous, and Michigan's Legislative Encyclopćdia, Let all give it a boom. "Should auld acquaintance be forgot." On January 1st., 1886, the Grand Rapids Democrat copied the "Clipper" article and gave the boom a push as follows: On the receipt of the Clipper per yesterday a Democrat reporter called on several of the ex-members and obtained their views on the propriety of the proposition. The first gentleman seen by the Democrat man was George W. Thompson, who was a member of the Legislature in '83-4. He said: "It is a fine scheme, and all the younger members will at once fall in. There may be a few of the old heads that will not care to join. Get the scheme a going. They recently had a similar event in Vermont and it was a grand success." Henry F. McCormick, member in '78-9: "I should like to meet the old members. There are a number that I have not seen since that time. It would be a very pleasant gathering and I would gladly attend. I think there would be at least 500 present and all the ex-members from this city." L. D. Norris: "I was a member of the state constitutional convention in 1850 so was Judge Withey. In '69-70 I was a state senator from Washtenaw county. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.com

Pictures, here, really are worth a thousand words as Loryn Brantz does the important work of making feminism accessible with a keen understanding of what kids need to know about feminism in their young lives. Even as an adult, I found myself utterly delighted from one page to the next. Feminist Baby is not just for babies. It's for all of us. (But mostly, it's for babies.)" -Roxane Gay, New York Times best-selling author of Bad Feminist "Not that you should have a baby for the sole purposes of reading a book to him or her, but if I were to do that it would be because of Feminist Baby. It's cute, inspiring, and a reminder that before society places boundaries on what girls are supposed to do and be like, girls can be anything, including empowered." -Phoebe Robinson, New York Times best-selling author of You Can't Touch My Hair "Feminist Baby is for girls, boys, moms and dads. If you want your little person to grow up to be a full and equal person, Feminist Baby is for you." -Rose McGowan, Activist/Director/Artist "Forget sugar & spice-fun & fierce, that's what Feminist Baby is made of!" -Debbie Levy, award-winning author of I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark "FINALLY! Feminism for the board-book set! Feminist Baby is cute, funny, right-on, and kind of almost makes me want to have another baby just so she can grow up reading it. That's not gonna happen, though, so I'll settle for getting for every mama-to-be and new baby I know." -Kate Schatz, author of the New York Times bestsellers Rad American Women A-Z and Rad Women Worldwide "Feminist Baby makes me want to get pregnant again immediately just so I have one more kid to share this wonderful book with. No child's bookshelf is complete without it." -Jessica Valenti, Guardian columnist & New York Times best-selling feminist author "With a palette as brash as her heroine, Brantz pictures this boundary-free little one as a big-eyed, roly-poly dumpling, usually not wearing any more than a diaper and a hair bow. It's just the thing to encourage kids to be loud, proud, and uncowed." -Publishers Weekly "The strong girl power message makes feminism and following your dreams accessible to toddlers. . . . A laugh-out-loud, smart, and much-needed addition to board book collections." -School Library Journal

Schubert: Complete Masses Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

There?s so much Schubert, it?s easy to underestimate the large sections of it that are hardly listened to for reasons of changing taste or convenience. The two late Masses are masterpieces to rank alongside the three great songcycles and piano sonatas, the two piano trios and C major Symphony; accordingly they retain a place at the edge of the concert repertory. The case of the other four is more complex: of more practical dimensions for liturgical use, they are nonetheless devotional works organised more by Schubert?s musical inspiration than any doctrinal considerations, to which he never paid more than lip-service in his own turbulent life.Nonetheless, the most cursory attention given to the opening Kyrie of his First Mass, written for the church in Lichtental associated with the family, should demonstrate that the work was not undertaken casually or lightly. However, the especially radiant soprano solo may (as so often with Schubert) have a personal inspiration: in this case the affection and desire the 17-year-old composer was beginning to feel for the soprano Therese Grob. One of Schubert?s more reliable friends recalled a conversation, years later, in which the composer had confessed of Grob that ?I loved someone very dearly and she loved me too?. For three years she hoped I would marry her; but I could not find a position which would have provided for us both.?The Third Mass, D.324 in E flat, is hardly less expansive, though now less often encountered than the pleasantly undemanding turn of the Second in G, D.167 with its tender Agnus Dei. The performances in this box set are a useful compendium of Schubert performing styles from the Czech Republic, Austria and Germany, culminating in a superbly detailed account of the E flat Mass D950, directed by Frieder Bernius, among the greatest living choral conductors in the German tradition.Although Schubert was not a traditionally religious person he found in the latin Liturgic text a consolation and an expression of his own personal emotions, both jubilant and despondent. Therefore his Masses are the reflection of his own beliefs and doubts, his deep feelings about life and death.This set contains the complete 6 Latin Masses and the ?Deutsche Messe?. Performers include the excellent Virtuosi di Praga and the Prague Chamber Orchestra, soloists Soile Isokoski, Kari Lövaas, Christoph Prégardien, Kammerchor Stuttgart, conductors Hans Gillesberger and Frieder Bernius.Booklet contains extensive liner notes.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"The Reluctant Fundamentalist" is the award-winning international bestseller by Mohsin Hamid. Now a major motion picture starring Kate Hudson and Kiefer Sutherland shortlisted for the man booker prize 2007. 'Excuse me, sir, but may I be of assistance? Ah, I see I have alarmed you. Do not be frightened by my beard. I am a lover of America...' So speaks the mysterious stranger at a Lahore cafe as dusk settles. Invited to join him for tea, you learn his name and what led this speaker of immaculate English to seek you out. For her is more worldy than you might expect; better travelled and better educated. He knows the West better than you do. And as he tells you his story, of how he embraced the Western dream - and a Western woman - and how both betrayed him, so the night darkens. Then the true reason for your meeting becomes abundantly clear...Praise for "The Reluctant Fundamentalist": "Beautifully written ...more exciting than any thriller I've read for a long time". (Philip Pullman). "Admirably spare and amazingly exciting". (Rachel Cooke, "New Statesman"). "Sharp, relevant, impressively intelligent ...entertains at the same time as it makes you think". ("Daily Telegraph"). "A cleverly constructed fable of infatuation and disenchantment...Intelligent and highly engaging, genuinely provocative". ("Guardian"). "A brilliant book". (Kiran Desai). "Prods the intellect, quickens the pace and captures the imagination". ("Sunday Times"). Mohsin Hamid is the author of three novels: "The Reluctant Fundamentalist", "Moth Smoke" and "How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia". His fiction has been translated into over 30 languages, received numerous awards, and been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. He has contributed essays and short stories to publications such as the "Guardian", "The New York Times", "Financial Times", "Granta", and "Paris Review". Born and mostly raised in Lahore, he spent part of his childhood in California, studied at Princeton University and Harvard Law School, and has since lived between Lahore, London, and New York.
