Dua puluh tahun lalu, Jean Louise menyaksikan Atticus, sang Ayah, membela Negro di pengadilan Maycomb County. Kini, Jean Louise menyadari bahwa Maycomb dan sang Ayah, ternyata tak seperti yang dia kira selama ini dan dia pun bukan Scout yang polos lagi. Go Set a Watchman adalah naskah pertama yang diajukan Harper Lee kepada penerbit sebelum To Kill a Mockingbird, yang memenangi Pulitzer. Setelah 60 tahun dianggap hilang, naskah berharga ini ditemukan pada akhir 2014. Terbitnya Go Set a Watchman disambut animo luar biasa. Buku ini terjual lebih dari 1,1 juta kopi di minggu pertama, memuncaki daftar bestseller di Amerika selama 5 minggu berturut-turut dalam 1,5 bulan, dan mengalahkan penjualan Harry Potter serta 50 Shades of Grey. Go Set a Watchman, warisan berharga Harper Lee, penulis Amerika paling berpengaruh pada abad ke-20. "Go Set a Watchman mempertanyakan beberapa hal penting yang justru disamarkan dalam To Kill a Mockingbird. Menghibur, lucu, tapi lugas dan jujur."-Ursula K. Le Guin, penulis The Earthsea Cycle "Aset terbesar Go Set a Watchman ialah perannya dalam memicu diskusi jujur tentang sejarah gelap Amerika mengenai persamaan ras."-San Francisco Chronicle "Luar biasa, sebuah novel yang ditulis lebih dari 50 tahun lalu ternyata masih kontekstual dengan masalah yang kita hadapi sekarang, tentang ras dan ketidakadilan."-Chicago Tribune "Go Set a Watchman lebih kompleks daripada To Kill a Mockingbird, karya klasik Harper Lee. Sebuah novel yang lengkap … sebuah karya sastra baru yang memuaskan dan autentik." -The Guardian "Go Set a Watchman memberikan pencerahan tentang kompleksitas dan kecerdasan salah satu penulis Amerika yang paling penting."-USA Today "Seperti yang dikemukakan Faulkner, kisah yang bagus adalah kisah manusia yang berkonflik dengan nuraninya. Dan itu adalah ringkasan yang tepat tentang Go Set a Watchman."-Daily Beast "Kompleksitas karakter Atticus membuat Go Set a Watchman pantas dibaca. Dengan Mockingbird, Harper Lee membuat kita mempertanyakan siapa sebenarnya diri kita dan apa yang sebenarnya kita tahu. Go Set a Watchman meneruskan tradisi mulia ini." -New York Post [Mizan, Mizan Publishing, Novel, Terjemahan, Legendaris, Indonesia]

Alan Moore's Watchmen is set in 1985 and chronicles the alternative history of the United States where the US edges dangerously closer to nuclear war with the Soviet Union. Within this world exists a group of crime busters, who don elaborate costumes to conceal their identity and fight crime, and an intricate plot to kill and discredit these "superheroes." Alan Moore's Watchmen popularized the graphic novel format, has been named one of Time magazine's top 100 novels, and is now being made into a highly anticipated movie adaptation. This latest book in the popular Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture series peers into Moore's deeply philosophical work to parse and deconstruct the ethical issues raised by Watchmen's costumed adventurers, their actions, and their world. From nuclear destruction to utopia, from governmental authority to human morality and social responsibility, it answers questions fans have had for years about Watchmen's ethical quandaries, themes, and characters.

Before skyscrapers and streetlights glowed at all hours, American cities fell into inky blackness with each setting of the sun. But over the course of the nineteenth and early twentieth century, new technologies began to light up streets, sidewalks, buildings, and public spaces. Peter C. Baldwin’s evocative book depicts the changing experience of the urban night over this period, visiting a host of actors—scavengers, newsboys, and mashers alike—in the nocturnal city. Baldwin examines work, crime, transportation, and leisure as he moves through the gaslight era, exploring the spread of modern police forces and the emergence of late-night entertainment, to the era of electricity, when social campaigns sought to remove women and children from public areas at night. While many people celebrated the transition from darkness to light as the arrival of twenty-four hours of daytime, Baldwin shows that certain social patterns remained, including the danger of street crime and the skewed gender profile of night work. Sweeping us from concert halls and brothels to streetcars and industrial forges, In the Watches of the Night is an illuminating study of a vital era in American urban history.
