              Independent Witness (Paperback, Open market ed)

              By Cecil, Henry

              All the action in this superb trial procedural takes place inside the courtroom. In a series of cross examinations, lawyers attempt to find a truly independent witness. The varied testimony elicited is often hilarious, sometimes sad, frequently crazy and almost always contradicto...ry. Even though it involves no murder, this is a classic mystery novel which probes the ever-baffling puzzle of how different people perceive the same phenomenon.

              The Intellectuals and the Masses: Pride and Prejudice Among the Literary Intelligensia, 1880-1939 (Paperback, New edition)

              By Carey, John

              John Carey analyses the elitist view of some of the most highly respected literary icons of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This book, as described in his preface, ""is about the response of the English literary intelligensia to the new phenomenon of mass culture."" This ...devastating attack on the intellectuals exposes the loathing which the mass of humanity ignited in many of the virtual founders of modern culture: Ezra Pound, James Joyce, E M Forster, Virginia Woolf, T S Eliot and others. Professor Carey compares their detestation of common humanity to Nietzche, whose philosophy helped to create the atmosphere leading to the rise of Adolph Hitler.
