Turner, Barry
In standard histories of the Second World War, the last six months in the western European arena invariably make a short epilogue. After the German failure in the Battle of the Bulge, Hitler's bold counter attack across the Ardennes, the war is often assumed to have been all over bar sporadic shooting. This was far from the truth; it was certainly not how those soldiers and civilians at the front saw it. Drawing on American, British, Canadian, German, Dutch and Scandinavian sources, most of them previously unpublished, and starting with the Battle of the Bulge, Countdown To Victory tells the little known story of those final months through the eyes of ordinary people who had to live the trauma. 494pp.

Lipton, Edward P. (editor)
Human rights, of which the freedom of religion is a central component, are promised by most governments on planet Earth. But promises are promises, are promises. In real life, religious liberty is far from a universal fact. This book surveys the countries of Africa based on U.S. State Department reports and is augmented by a current bibliography and a useful index.

Edited By Kopelman,Loretta M. And De Ville,Kenneth A.
This title offers a detailed discussion of recent supreme court rulings that have had an impact on the contemporary debate in the US and elsewhere over physician-assisted suicide. Two rulings by the US Supreme Court have altered the contemporary debate on physician-assisted suicide: Washington versus Glucksberg (1997) and Vacco versus Quill (1997). In these cases, the Supreme Court ruled that state laws could prohibit assisted suicide and, therefore, physician-assisted suicide. These rulings mark the apex of over two decades of unprecedented litigation regarding end-of-life care and signal the beginning of a new clinical, ethical, and legal debate over the extent of an individual's rights to control the timing, manner, and means of his/her death. The debate over suicide and assisting suicide is ancient and contentious and intertwined with questions about the permissibility of voluntary active euthanasia or mercy killing. Responses to these issues can be divided into those who defend physician-assisted suicide and many of these other activities and those who object. But those who object may do so on principle grounds in that they regard these activities as wrong in all cases, or non-principled, in that they believe there are more prudent, less disruptive or more efficient policies. This book examines these responses and looks at the assumptions underlying them. Several of these authors offer the view that a culture gap exists, deeper and wider than that in the abortion debate.235pp. N.B.Slight label residue to base of d/j spine.
