Lithuania showed progress in macroeconomic stability and structural reforms, under the Stand-By Arrangement. Executive Directors welcomed this development, and endorsed the authorities' intention to switch the peg of the litas to the euro, with a view to move toward greater economic integration with the European Union area, while preserving the credibility of the currency board. They welcomed the comprehensive medium-term fiscal framework, which aimed to determine the priorities, address future expenditure pressures, and achieve the medium-term goal of a cyclically balanced budget.

Many academics dismiss Stephen King as a mere genre writer, an over-glorified bestseller who appeals to the masses, but lacks literary merit. This critical analysis of King’s epic novel The Stand makes a case for the horror master as a literary writer. A careful consideration of The Stand’s abstract themes, characters, setting, and text reveals how King’s work brims with the literary techniques that critics expect of a serious writer and the haunting questions that mark enduring literature. A thoughtful deliberation on so-called “escapist” fiction in the world of literature as well as an informed examination of one of King’s most famous books, this work paves the way for future studies of other King novels.

Additional grants and higher tax revenue will offset the loss of the oil surplus and the increase in petroleum subsidies. The authorities intend to limit total budgetary expenditure to the program level with a view to achieving the fiscal deficit target. The authorities recognized an upside potential on the revenue side, and in such an event, they intend to save a large portion of the overperformance for further deficit and debt reduction.

The fast economic recovery despite a strong fiscal correction is a result of the government’s determined macroeconomic and structural policies. Executive Directors commend the government for adhering to its ambitious fiscal targets. The careful crafting of legislation to establish a second pillar of the pension system is appropriate. The high confidence in the currency board and the strengthening of the banking system will stabilize the financial system. Nonbanking supervision has to be strengthened further and the draft securities market law should be implemented.

David Helwig has written an engaging novella about a whimsical, opinionated and slightly embittered professor of humanities, now retired. The professor is asked, at the last minute, to fill in and deliver an important lecture series, replacing a famous friend and colleague who has suddenly died. The professor does agree but his impromptu talks - both amusing and reflective - combine memories of Paris, odd corners of art history, and the story of his own life with its links to Denman Tarrington, the deceased celebrity. As his talks continue, the professor's thoughts and ideas find their way into other possible worlds, following all the avenues through a house of mirrors.David Helwig lives on Prince Edward Island in the village of Eldon. He indulges his passion for vocal music by singing with choirs in Montreal, Kingston, and Charlottetown. He has appeared as bass soloist in Handel's Messiah, Bach's St Matthew Passion and Mozart's Requiem.

America's most prominent legal mind and the #1 bestselling author of Chutzpah and The Best Defense, Alan Dershowitz, recounts his legal autobiography, describing how he came to the law, as well as the cases that have changed American jurisprudence over the past 50 years, most of which he has personally been involved in. In Taking the Stand, Dershowitz reveals the evolution of his own thinking on such fundamental issues as censorship and the First Amendment, Civil Rights, Abortion, homicide and the increasing role that science plays in a legal defense. Alan Dershowitz, the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard University, and the author of such acclaimed bestsellers as Chutzpah, The Best Defense, and Reversal of Fortune, for the first time recounts his legal biography, describing his struggles academically at Yeshiva High School growning up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, his successes at Yale, clerking for Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg, his appointment to full professor at the Harvard at age 28, the youngest in the school's history. Dershowitz went on to work on many of the most celebrated cases in the land, from appealing (successfully) Claus Von Bulow's conviction for the murder of his wife Sunny, to the O.J. Simpson trial, to defending Mike Tyson, Leona Helmsley, Patty Hearst, and countless others. He is currently part of the legal team advising Julian Assange.
