Dr. Elsie Inglis

First published in 1919, Dr. Elsie Inglis-by English suffragist LADY FRANCES BALFOUR (1858-1930)-was the definitive biography, based on first-hand sources, of the pioneering physician. Born in India to progressive parents, Inglis was educated at the Edinburgh School of Medicine for Women, which opened in 1886. She encountered sexism throughout her life and fought against the prevailing assumptions that women unfit to be doctors and that women's ailments could most easily be solved by relaxation on a couch. Among her many trailblazing accomplishments, she established hospitals in Russia, Serbia, and France for victims of the First World War. Anyone interested in women's suffrage and women's advancements in medicine will be fascinated in this biography.

Jailed for Freedom (Webster’s German Thesaurus Edition)

Websters paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-German thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of Jailed for Freedom by Doris Stevens was edited for three audiences. The first includes German-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or German speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in German in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement (AP) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's German Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in German or English.
