Neillands, Robin
This is the story, from New Year's Day to VE Day, 8 May 1945, of the conquest of Nazi Germany in the words of those who were there. It is the follow-up to Robin Neilland's "D-Day 1944: Voices from Normandy". The story is told in the words of ordinary people: American infantry, British paratroopers, Canadian gunners, Australian pilots, New Zealand POWs and German civilians. Neillands paints a broad picture, and tells of events from the participants viewpoint: the men who flew on the Dresden Raid or fought the battles in the Hurtgen Forest, The Bulge, the Reichwald, and at the Rhine Crossing, those who made the horrific discoveries of Belsen, Dachau, Buchenwald and Dora. He talks to those who survived the concentration camps, and to Allied POWs who lived through the Death Marches from the East. Previous owners label on inside cover. 301pp.

Graddol, David and Boyd-Barrett, Oliver
This volume is one of the four readers compiled as part of the course Language and Literacy (Code E825), which is one module of the (UK) Open University MA in Education programme. The collection of papers in this volume is the outcome of a collaboration between two editors: the first a linguist and the second a researcher in media studies. The papers reflect the growing convergence of the two disciplines in their treatment of the text. Analyses of film and television have for some time drawn on linguistics theory - particularly the structuralist model of language provided by Saussure. More recently, linguists have themselves developed and turned their attention to the kinds of text which pervade everyday life, and that has at last generated more principled accounts of the interaction between words and image, and more generally of the interplay and tension between verbal and non-verbal modes of meaning. This anthology is thus concerned with the complex ways in which texts communicate: at how the verbal and visual element of texts can be theorized within a linguistic framework; and at postmodern approaches which strive to "decanter" the text itself and explore the historical social contexts of their production and consumption. The collection should be of wide interest to students and researchers in linguistics, media studies, and communication. 282pp.

Masellis,M. And Gunn,S.W.A.
This book is a sequel to "The Management of Mass Burn Casualties and Fire Disasters" by the same editors. Like its predecessor, this book is a continuing reflection of commitment to the reduction of fire disasters and the improvement of burn therapy. The health professions have been continually developing effective management in burn therapy; in parallel, the community has been mobilizing fire prevention and fire fighting mechanisms that protect the environment from ever-increasing hazards of disasters. This work reflects their efforts. 603pp.
