View: 5803This is a typical enemies-turn-to-lovers romance story between two young men. When Crown Prince Shen Qinghan actually married Lin Jie, a street vendor, countless girls who adored the prince were heartbroken. And the cause of this seemingly absurd event was a promise made by the Emperor when he was young. On the wedding day, the Crown Prince didn't seem happy at all. After all, he did not wish to marry Lin Jie on his own accord. Lin Jie, who was about to become the crown princess, was also confused. He had indeed thought of marrying a rich man in the future, but he had never thought of marrying the current crown prince! Lin Jie wanted to run away from the marriage, but the Crown Prince caught him while he was climbing the wall. Because his shoes were a bit too big, one shoe fell off and hit the Crown Prince in the face... Lin Jie was so scared, sitting still on the wall. “Get off."Shen Qinghan said, showing little emotion.

View: 2444The Crown stands at the heart of the New Zealand, British, Australian and Canadian constitutions as the ultimate source of legal authority and embodiment of state power. A familiar icon of the Westminster model of government, it is also an enigma. Even constitutional experts struggle to define its attributes and boundaries: who or what is the Crown and how is it embodied? Is it the Queen, the state, the government, a corporation sole or aggregate, a relic of feudal England, a metaphor, or a mask for the operation of executive power? How are its powers exercised? How have the Crowns of different Commonwealth countries developed? The Shapeshifting Crown combines legal and anthropological perspectives to provide novel insights into the Crown's changing nature and its multiple, ambiguous and contradictory meanings. It sheds new light onto the development of the state in postcolonial societies and constitutional monarchy as a cultural system.

View: 3640Jewels in the Crown, winner of the 2013 Montagu Trophy by the Guild of Motoring Writers, provides an analysis of Tata’s acquisition of Jaguar and Land Rover in 2008, and subsequent transformation of their fortunes, written by an award-winning motoring writer. Ray Hutton goes behind the scenes to examine how Tata have not only returned the business to profit, but also transformed the public image of these long-established British brands. At the time of the takeover, both brands (once the crown jewels of the British motor industry) had been tarnished by a patchy reputation for quality and reliability. Tata bought a new approach to the business, with fast decision-making and a solid, sustainable, long-term strategy. Factory efficiency was improved and a major export drive accompanied by a succession of carefully-positioned new models, from the Jaguar XJ Saloon and F-Type sports car to the Evoque and the new, lighter but more luxurious Range Rover flagship. The result was a remarkable change of fortunes. This book shows how it was done.
