Collection of five films starring Sylvester Stallone. In 'Assassins' (1995) professional hitman Rath (Stallone) decides it's time to call it a day, even though he is still the best around. But as he searches for a way out he discovers that he is now the target of another assassin, Bain (Antonio Banderas), who is determined to be the new number one. The two men are both sent on an assignment to kill intelligence operative Elektra (Julianne Moore). However, Rath decides to flee with Elektra and outwit Bain. In 'The Specialist' (1994) US demolition expert Ray Quick (Stallone) attempts to abort the assassination of a South American drugs baron when he realises innocent children will be killed in the explosion. However, his partner (James Woods) goes ahead with the mission, leaving the duo permanently estranged and Quick psychologically scarred. Years later, a beautiful woman (Sharon Stone) asks Quick to come out of retirement to kill a Cuban drug lord who has murdered her father. Quick initially refuses, but is soon drawn into a plot that brings him in contact with his ex-partner once again. In 'Tango and Cash' (1989) two mismatched cops, one sharp-suited (Stallone), the other a slob (Kurt Russell), are thrown together when they are framed by a big-shot gun-runner (Jack Palance). They are put in prison, duly escape, and then attempt to clear their names whilst trying to track down a massive haul of weapons before they get shipped abroad. In 'Demolition Man' (1993) LA cop John Spartan (Stallone), nicknamed 'Demolition Man' due to his hands-on approach to law enforcement, is condemned to 70 years in the penal freezer after being set up by Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes), Public Enemy Number One. Halfway through his sentence, however, both he and Phoenix are catapulted out of captivity, discovering their city has been transformed into a peaceful utopia, under the benevolent rule of mayor Dr Cocteau (Nigel Hawthorne). As a mysteriously pumped-up Phoenix carries on where he had left off 35 years earlier, Spartan teams up with a comparatively feisty cop (Sandra Bullock) to bring him to justice and expose the man who is engineering the whole scenario. In 'Cobra' (1986) a tough detective known as Cobra (Stallone), is assigned to protect a beautiful model (Brigitte Nielsen), the only witness to a series of brutal murders. It transpires that the killings are not the work of one lone psychopath but rather a highly organised army of neo-fascists.

In the last few years there have been many papers in vision science journals about visual factors in dyslexia, but these findings have not been widely disseminated to the professionals who care for people with dyslexia. Dyslexia and Vision aims to provide a straightforward summary of work in this field for teachers, educational psychologists, child psychologists, and paediatricians. The primary purpose of the book is to provide these professionals with the information they need in order to offer balanced, insightful advice for people in their care. Eyecare professionals themselves are often bewildered by the plethora of claims and anecdotes in this field. A secondary purpose of the book is to provide, in appendices, a balanced "evidence-based" review of the literature for eyecare professionals.
"Jazz in the Time of the Novel" argues that a culture's
understanding of the concept of time plays a central role in its
economic, social, and aesthetic affairs and that a culture arrives
at its conception of time through its artistic practices. Bruce
Barnhart, in "Jazz in the Time of the Novel, " shows that American
culture of the first three decades of the twentieth century was
shaped by the kindred rhythms and movements of two particular art
forms: jazz and fiction. At the beginning of the twentieth century,
widespread changes in America's social, demographic, and economic
norms threatened longstanding faith in a unified and inevitable
movement towards a better future. As Barnhart shows both jazz and
novels of the period address these temporal uncertainties,
inserting themselves into arguments about the proper unfolding of
an affirmative American future. Barnhart proposes that these two
aesthetic forms can be viewed as co-participants in an ongoing
discussion about the way in which the future should be imagined and
experienced--a discussion symptomatic of the broader exchanges
taking place within the many trajectories comprising early
twentieth-century American culture. This book includes in-depth
approaches to numerous examples of jazz and the novel, including
performances by James P. Johnson, Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith,
Duke Ellington, and Ethel Waters, and novels by James Weldon
Johnson, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, and
Nella Larsen, among others. In addition to the details of specific
musical and literary works, "Jazz in the Time of the Novel" offers
careful consideration as to how these works impact their social

Romanticism is as rife in Civil War history as any other and may produce more than its share of drums and trumpets writing that glosses over the fear, pain, and death that are inevitable components of all warfare. The essays that make up this collection seek to act as corrective to such celebratory history by carefully examining some of the unpleasant realities that marked combat in the Civil War - when industrial and technological warfare came of age, at a time when medical care, sanitation, diet, and other modern adaptations to industry were still in their infancy. In addition to an introduction, an afterword, and an essay on the 'Numbers' by editor Gramm, Paul Fussell contributes a powerful essay on 'The Culture of War'; D. Scott Hartwig examines the face of battle at Gettysburg; Bruce A. Evans discusses 'Wounds, Death, and Medical Care in the Civil War' ; Eric T. Dean rethinks the meaning and consequences of combat in 'The Awful Shock and Rage of Battle' ; and Alan T. Nolan looks at the national consequences of battle and the resultant myth of the Lost Cause.

Bruce Evans Jeff Dyar Management of EMS "EMS Management for the Fire Service" brings value as a single source for the unique challenge of the management of Emergency Medical Services within the Fire Department, both for officers currently practicing as well as a training resource. The career development model of the National Fire Academy, and the model curriculum of the Fire Emergency Service Higher Education (FESHE) group, industry leaders in fire service education and training, served as a basis for this important text. Being leaders in the field and having years of meaningful hands-on experience and a passion for EMS, the authors bring a real-life approach to this text. This text covers all the elements of EMS management from core competencies such as strategic planning, training and education and fleet management to the legal, financial, and ethical aspects of good EMS management.
