When World War Two breaks out, friendships outwith the family are sorely tested by the difficulties of wartime prejudice. - One of the set drama texts for National 5 English - Written by a very successful playwright and television screenplay writer

Two years later, he still hasn't done it. Now it's too late. Grigori has found her. Tally is on the run from Grigori, an ancient evil that has been hunting her family for generations. He wants to kill her and steal her power -- a power she doesn't even realize she has. Tally must learn how to use her power, stay one step ahead of Grigori, and get to Pottersfield! Pottersfield is a shared-world setting created by Jason Asala and Tim Bohn. The Pottersfield Institute is the home base of a wide array of characters found in two multi-book series. Tim leads off first with The Old Blood, the first book of the Legacy of Magic series. In mid-2015 Jason follows up with the first book of his Civil War Leviathan series, The Last of the Virginia Regulars.

Sherman, Clara Barton, Theodore Roosevelt, Ernie Pyle, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Julia Child, Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, and Gen. Benjamin O. Davis Sr. Collected in War Letters, they are an astonishing historical record, a powerful tribute to those who fought, and a celebration of the enduring power of letters.

Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) is a disorder in which the body's immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system. Feelings of tingling and weakness increase in intensity until the muscles cannot be used at all and the patient is almost totally paralyzed. No one knows why Guillain-Barre strikes some people and not others, or what sets the disease in motion. What we do know is that GBS is now the most common cause of acute paralysis in Western countries since the virtual elimination of poliomyelitis with vaccination programs. Guillain-Barre Syndrome, co-authored by a survivor of this illness, addresses all aspects of this condition, including initial symptoms, diagnostic evaluation and criteria, general and illness specific treatments, and typical outcomes. Fortunately, most GBS patients have a good recovery, but the pathway to this goal can be slow and scary. This book covers a wide range of issues including: Features unique to GBS such as pain without injury and other abnormal sensations Workplace adjustment with incomplete recovery Intensive care unit management Practical caregivers guidelines The rehabilitation process Sexual dysfunction, and much more Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a comprehensive book, written in lay terms, covering everything from diagnosis to emotional issues. It is a book that stands alone. This latest volume in the American Academy of Neurology Press Quality of Life Guide series is an essential tool for all individuals, families, and caregivers coping with Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
