More Musings is William Russell Hardick's second book, but the content is the same as Musing's of an Old Warrior, though many of the poems are derived from personal experiences, many are from other peoples experiences and his visions of what the future holds and has already begun to occur in this world. Russell writes about love, loss and the signifi cance of war. What Russell tells us is not just a depiction of the outlook, but warnings to younger generation to take caution and to realize for themselves that these occurrences are happening in real time, basically detailing reality. Russell also represents each individual's sojourn.

Shimazaki Toson and Japanese Nationalism

A critical rethinking of theories of national imagination, The Dawn That Never Comes offers the most detailed reading to date in English of one of modern Japan's most influential poets and novelists, Shimazaki Toson (1872–1943). It also reveals how Toson's works influenced the production of a fluid, shifting form of national imagination that has characterized twentieth-century Japan. Analyzing Toson's major works, Michael K. Bourdaghs demonstrates that the construction of national imagination requires a complex interweaving of varied—and sometimes contradictory—figures for imagining the national community. Many scholars have shown, for example, that modern hygiene has functioned in nationalist thought as a method of excluding foreign others as diseased. This study explores the multiple images of illness appearing in Toson's fiction to demonstrate that hygiene employs more than one model of pathology, and it reveals how this multiplicity functioned to produce the combinations of exclusion and assimilation required to sustain a sense of national community. Others have argued that nationalism is inherently ambivalent and self-contradictory; Bourdaghs shows more concretely both how this is so and why it is necessary and provides, in the process, a new way of thinking about national imagination. Individual chapters take up such issues as modern medicine and the discourses of national health; ideologies of the family and its representation in modern literary works; the gendering of the canon of national literature; and the multiple forms of space and time that narratives of national history require.

The snow had been falling with fierce intensity for the past several hours and the accompanying strong north wind was creating blizzard conditions. While the four men sat around a small stove discussing the fate of their two captives, the two men in question, one young and the other only slightly older, sat huddled in a corner of the other unfinished cabin without the benefit of a stove or light. They fought off the biting cold and penetrating wind blowing through the cracks in the flimsy walls with only a couple of thread-bare blankets and their jackets. The older man spoke softly to the figure huddle next to him, Hang in there, son, well get out of here I promise. Move closer to me and we can share our body heat. We have to keep our strength up when the time comes we can move. The younger man moved closer and responded weakly, I dont know if I can hang on much longer, Im so cold and hungry. Putting his arm around the shivering figure the other man replied, Just hold on to me, my friends will be looking for us and I know they wont give up until were found. Huddled to together the younger man tried to sleep while the mind of the older man churned over the possibilities of finding a way out of their predicament. He realized he needed to do something and do it quickly before both of them became a useless commodity which would place them at the mercy of not only the freezing weather but also their guards.

Pride, murderer, encroachers of dreams, encroaching on human rights, encroaching on other’s dreams and encroaching on other’s future. Egoism devours man’s hearts – me first, me second, and me to the last. There is no space or position left for others to occupy. These are men who are ready to take their brother’s birthright for a common porridge. But forget not: teach not a man the taste of milk. Milk he will not seek or to rest, but busy he will always be. But once learned, that he will and will always seek. An ignorant man can be happy in his ignorance and accept all kinds of cheating, but the very day he acquires knowledge, then he will not let go even a single cheat. Knowledge brings choice, choice brings desire, and desire leads to seeking. For that which the knowledge lacks, one seeks not.

If Yesterday Never Comes, by Thomas Quatrini, is a gripping look at the consequences of playing God, even if you are the most powerful man in the world. The world as we know it has changed, the United Nations has failed to evolve with the changes, and as a result is on the verge of being destroyed and replaced with the League of Democratic Nations. One man, the President of the United States, is on the brink of fulfilling a life-long dream, leaving his mark on history. Then without warning, he is informed of a time traveling device within the Pentagon, the DATE machine, that has not only become active, but is being used in a sinister plot to alter the structure of the government itself. The DATE machine is now threatening the formation of the League, and the reputation and legacy of the President. As he and his staff scramble to figure out who is behind this inner threat, he slowly realizes how the deadliest of enemies can be hidden in plain sight.
