Blinkenberg, Lars
One of the most persistent area of conflict since World-War II, the Indo-Pakistan troubles, "celebrated" their 50th anniversary in the second half of 1997 without there being any solution in sight. Since august 1947, when the two new states were created out of British India, there has been almost uninterrupted conflict between India and Pakistan. On three occasions, in 1947, in 1965 and 1971, it has led to war. The first volume of India-Pakistan is a study of the historical background to the conflict, while the second volume provides analysis of the many structural factors, in particular with regard to the political background in India during the first period of conflict. Differences arose out of a post-colonial settlement which was driven by the old British policy of "Divide and Rule", but which was effected in a special way due to the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru´s and to the suggestions of the Viceroy Mountbatten. This volume also includes interviews with many, politicians and journalists among them, who have been deeply involved in and have an intimate knowledge of the subcontinent and its recent history. 433pp.

Caldwell, Steven C. (editor)
Of the 152 nominations to the U.S. Supreme Court between 1789 and 2001, 32 were not confirmed by the Senate. The 32 nominations represent 27 individuals who failed to be confirmed the first time they were nominated, however, three were later nominated again and confirmed. The Supreme Court nominations discussed here were not confirmed for a variety of reasons, including Senate opposition to the nominating President, nominee's views, or incumbent Court; senatorial courtesy; perceived political unreliability of the nominee; perceived lack of ability; interest group opposition; and fear of altering the balance of the Court. The Senate Committee on the Judiciary has played an important role in the confirmation process, particularly since 1868. These nominations have been the subject of extensive legal, historical, and political science writing, a selected list of which is included in this report. Calls for change in the Supreme Court also have been directed at three other aspects of the Supreme Court appointment process: the involvement of outside interest groups; the overall length of time taken by the process; and the process by which the Senate as a whole decides whether to confirm or reject the President's nominee. This new book also examines recess appointments of federal judges and professional qualifications for appointment to the federal judiciary. 159pp.
