The latest book Military Inc.: Inside Pakistan�s Military Economy, written by Ayesha Siddiqa is a tell all narration of the highly profitable company called The Pakistan Army.

Ayesha Siddiqa is a military analyst with a PhD in war studies from King�s College, London. Her recently published book, Military Inc: Inside Pakistan�s Military Economy as already created ripples, with the ISPR sending rejoinders to the media without actually reading the book from cover to cover, claims Siddiqa. It took her two years to write the book and three years to research it. Her earlier book was Pakistan�s Arms Procurement and Military Buildup, 1979-99.

I uploaded Military Inc.� Inside Pakistan�s Military Economy, a book by Dr. Ayesha Siddiqa, as a public service to the people of Pakistan. I don’t intend to earn any commercial gains from it.

Though it is your moral responsibility to buy this book as soon as you can to support her cause.

This is a novel about politics, gambling, deception, technology, fear and food.

If you play the lottery, by all means read this book. Even if you are not a gambler, you should still be enlightened and have a new outlook about games of chance.

Afghanistan; The Genesis of the Final Crusade [Abidullah Jan]

Afghanistan; The Genesis of the Final Crusade 
Abidullah Jan

This is the first book of its kind that presents a compelling insider’s perspective on the war and occupation of Afghanistan.
Abid Jan takes you into the minds of the warriors on the battle field in Afghanistan and to the heart of the decisions that put them there. In this remarkable piece of work, the author nails the tragedy and absurdity of the prep-planned war on Afghanistan. Abid Jan has harnessed his first hand knowledge and in-depth analysis to produce a work of incantatory power in which the lies and misinformation about the Taliban are allowed to collapse by sheer weight of accumulation.
This book gives the first and only clearest and most persuasive explanation of how Osama was set up for shouldering the blame of 9/11 attacks, why the Taliban become a prime target of Islamophobes and why perpetrators of 9/11 felt the need to commit this heinous crime.
This is the first book which does more than devastatingly refute the mendacity of the US Afghanistan policy and proves that the war on Afghanistan is illegal by all standards of international law. It presents a chilling portrait of the religious forces commandeering American policies. It reveals assumptions and myths about Islam that have had such disastrous consequences for the world at large.

The Red Badge of Courage [Stephen Crane]

The Red Badge of Courage is a classic war novel written in 1985 by American author Stephen Crane. It is considered one of the most influential works in American literature. The novel, in which a young recruit in the American Civil War is faced by the cruelty of war, has made Crane an international success. Although he was born after the war and had not at the time experienced battle firsthand, the novel is considered an example of Realism.

During an unnamed battle, 18-year-old private Henry Fleming survives what he considers to be a lost cause by escaping into the nearby forest, deserting his battalion. He then finds a group of injured men in which One of the group, the "Tattered Soldier", asks Henry, who is often referred to as "The Youth", where he is wounded. Henry, embarrassed that he does not have any wounds, wanders through the forest. He ultimately decides that running was the best thing, and that he is a small part of the army responsible for saving himself.

When he learns that his battalion had won the battle and that it was not a suicide mission after all, Henry feels incredibly guilty. As a result, he returns to his battalion and is injured when a cannon operator hits Henry in the head because he wouldn't let go of his leg. When he returns to camp, the other soldiers believe that he was harmed by a bullet grazing him in battle. The next morning he goes into battle for the third time. While looking for a stream to attain water from, he discovers from the commanding officer that his regiment has a lackluster reputation. The officer speaks casually about sacrificing Henry's regiment because they are nothing more than "mule drivers" and "mud diggers". With no regiments to spare, the general orders his men forward. In the final battle, Henry becomes one of the best fighters in his battalion as well as the flag bearer, finally proving his courage as a man.

Around the World in Eighty Days [Jules Verne]

Around the World in Eighty Days (French: Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours) is a classic adventure novel by the French writer Jules Verne, first published in 1873. In the story, Phileas Fogg of London and his newly employed French valet Passepartout attempt to circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a £20,000 wager set by his friends at the Reform Club.

The story starts in London October 2, 1872. Phileas Fogg is a wealthy English gentleman who lives unmarried in solitude at Number 7 Saville Row, Burlington Gardens. Despite his wealth, which is of unknown origin, Mr. Fogg, whose countenance is described as "repose in action", lives a modest life with habits carried out with mathematical precision. As is noted in the first chapter, very little can be said about Mr. Fogg's social life other than that he is a member of the Reform Club. Having dismissed his former valet, James Foster, for bringing him shaving water at 84 degrees Fahrenheit rather than the regular 86, Mr. Fogg hires the Frenchman Passepartout, of around 30 years of age, as a replacement.

Later that day in the Reform Club, he gets involved in an argument over an article in The Daily Telegraph, stating that with the opening of a new railway section in India, it is now possible to travel around the world in 80 days.


Peer-e-Kaamil [Umaira Ahmad]

Umera Ahmed (born in 10,December 1974 in Sialkot) is an Urdu novelist and screenplay writer who is mostly popular for writing Peer-e-Kamil.
In this book there is a story of a girl who was from Qadyani firqa and she got the noor-e-hidayat and turned to Muslim but her family didn’t allow her to do this but she did as she was engaged with one of her cousin who was also qadyani so it wasn’t possible her to get marry with him so she takes help of his neighbor named Salar who has +150 I.Q.Level he was very different guy but the both Imama (the girl who turned Muslim from qadyani) and Salar don’t like each other.
Salar was the guy who was in the depth of sins but after some time he got changing in herself and he realized lots of things about Islam, about life about the reality.
Coming to point after salutation, the facts shown in the book were heart & soul shaking. Many among us don’t think about this and coming life but only consider it as to have the luxuries and to relax after working hard for gathering these luxuries. The only right path starts from ALLAH (subhana wat aala) and ends at his beloved last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (salalaho alaihe wasalam). Not as many words in mind to give the compliments.
Life is to live according to what deem you right, not what the system deem it right. God has given us the ability to differentiate between right and wrong. And when we are given the option, we have to choose wisely, we won’t be given chances too many times.

Discourses on Livy [Niccolò Machiavelli]

The Discourses on Livy (Italian: Discorsi sopra la prima deca di Tito Livio, literally "Discourses on the First Decade of Titus Livy") is a work of political history and philosophy written in the early 16th century (ca. 1513) by the Italian writer and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli, best known as the author of The Prince. Where the latter is devoted to advising the ruler of a principality, i.e., a type of monarchy, the Discourses purport to explain the structure and benefits of a republic, a form of government based on popular consent and control. It is considered almost unanimously by scholars to be if not the first, then certainly the most important, work on republicanism in the early modern period.
Machiavelli dedicated this work to Zanobi Buondelmonti and Cosimo Rucellai, two of the greatest exponents of the Orti Oricellari in Florence, where aristocratic young people met in order to discuss politics, art and literature.

The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. It is the foundation and source of the legal authority underlying the existence of the United States of America and the federal government of the United States. It provides the framework for the organization of the United States government and for the relationship of the federal government to the states, to citizens, and to all people within the United States.
The Constitution defines the three main branches of government: a legislature, the bicameral Congress; an executive branch led by the President; and a judicial branch headed by the Supreme Court. The Constitution specifies the powers and duties of each branch. The Constitution reserves all unenumerated powers for the respective states and the people, thereby establishing the federal system of government.
The United States Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787, by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and ratified by conventions in each U.S. state in the name of "The People". The Constitution has been amended twenty-seven times; the first ten amendments are known as the Bill of Rights.
The United States Constitution is the shortest and oldest written constitution still in use by any nation in the world today.
