In this classic work, the author tries to draw an image of WWI horrors through several short stories. The book was based on true events and reflects the feelings of the soldiers facing death on the front lines. There were some who complained that my last book was in parts too grim and too terrible, and no doubt the same complaint may lie against this one. To that I can only reply that I have found it impossible to write with any truth of the Front without the writing being grim, and in writing my other book I felt it would be no bad thing if Home realized the grimness a little better.

Wie verändern sich islamistische Bewegungen? Um diese zentrale Frage zu beantworten, analysiert die Autorin zwei islamistische Bewegungen aus vergleichender Perspektive: Die Islamic Action Front in Jordanien (1989-2010) sowie die An-Nahdha in Tunesien (1981-2011). Sie führte zahlreiche Interviews mit islamistischen Vertretern aus beiden Ländern und analysierte ihre zentralen Dokumente. Welche Bereiche ihrer islamischen Frames (Rolle von Religion, Gewalt, Demokratie, Gender, Shari''a) wandelten sich mit den Opportunitätsstrukturen und welche Bereiche blieben konstant? Eines der zentralen Ergeb.

Rates of organ donation lag far behind the increasing need. At the start of 2006, more than 90,000 people were waiting to receive a solid organ (kidney, liver, lung, pancreas, heart, or intestine). Organ Donation examines a wide range of proposals to increase organ donation, including policies that presume consent for donation as well as the use of financial incentives such as direct payments, coverage of funeral expenses, and charitable contributions. This book urges federal agencies, nonprofit groups, and others to boost opportunities for people to record their decisions to donate, strengthen efforts to educate the public about the benefits of organ donation, and continue to improve donation systems. Organ Donation also supports initiatives to increase donations from people whose deaths are the result of irreversible cardiac failure. This book emphasizes that all members of society have a stake in an adequate supply of organs for patients in need, because each individual is a potential recipient as well as a potential donor.

"Written during the last years of the Weimar Republic, the two novels collected here address the urgent problems of that age. Both Erich Maria Remarque (1898-1970) and Joseph Roth (1894-1939) served in World War I, Remarque with the German army and Roth with the Austrian. Their experiences would help define what Gertrude Stein referred to as the "Lost Generation." All Quiet on the Western Front is the testimony of a soldier who had become aware of how much he, and those of his generation who had survived, had been affected by the trauma of the Great War. For Joseph Roth, World War I had cost him his homeland and turned him into a nomad. Job, in abridged form for The German Library, addresses the theme of Jewish identity in a newly mobilized society."--Jacket.

Action Analysis is one of the fundamental princples of animation that underpins all types of animation: 2d, 3d, computer animation, stop motion, etc. This is a fundamental skill that all animators need to create polished, believable animation. An example of Action Analysis would be Shrek's swagger in the film, Shrek. The animators clearly understood (through action analysis) the type of walk achieved by a large and heavy individual (the real) and then applied their observations to the animated character of an ogre (the fantastic). It is action analysis that enabled the animation team to visually translate a real life situation into an ogre's walk, achieving such fantastic results. Key animation skills are demonstrated with in-depth illustrations, photographs and live action footage filmed with high speed cameras. Detailed Case Studies, practical assignments and industry interviews ground action analysis methodology with real life examples. Action Analysis for Animators is a essential guide for students, amateurs and professionals.

This book traces the effects of the feminist and civil rights movements in the construction of Hollywood action heroes. Starting in the late 1980s, action blockbusters regularly have featured masculine figures who choose love and community over the path of the stoic loner committed solely to duty. The American heroic quest of the past 25 years increasingly has involved a reclamation of home, creating a place for the Hero at the hearth, part of a more intimate community with less restrictive gender and racial boundaries. The author presents pieces of contemporary popular culture that create the complex mosaic of the present-day American heroic ideal. Hollywood popular films are examined that best represent the often painful shift from traditional heroic masculinity to a masculinity that is less "exceptional" and more vulnerable. There are also chapters on how issues of race and gender intersect with the new masculinity and on subgenres of 1990s films that also developed this postfeminist masculinity.
