Action Front. 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.

All Quiet On The Western Front. Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience during World War I. I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. . . . This is the testament of Paul Bäumer, who enlists with his classmates in the German army during World War I. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm. But the world of duty, culture, and progress they had been taught breaks in pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principle of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another . . . if only he can come out of the war alive. Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. “The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.

Organ Donation. 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.

Consumer Behavior In Action. Down-to-earth, highly engaging, and thorough, Consumer Behavior in Action does more than any other consumer behavior textbook to generate student interest and involvement through extensive in-class and written application exercises. The text's four parts can be covered in any sequence after Part I, which provides an overview of consumer behavior and covers foundational material on market segmentation. Part II covers the consumer decision-making process in general as well as each of the specific stages of that process. Part III investigates societal influences on consumer behavior, from society and culture to interpersonal, and Part IV deals with the micro-psychological influences on consumer decision-making. Each chapter includes several exercises in self-contained units, each with its own applications, as well as learning objectives and an easy-to-understand background textual discussion. Each chapter also includes a key concepts list, review questions, and a solid summary to help initiate further student research. The text includes ten different types of engaging exercises: analysis of advertisements, analysis of scenarios, introspection into students' own consumer behavior, interactive Internet exercises, experimental and survey fieldwork, quantitative exercises, creative exercises, debatable issues, ethical analyses, and marketplace analyses. An Online Instructor's Manual is available to adopters.
