Beren and Lúthien
The tale of Beren and Lúthien was, or became, an essential element in the evolution of The Silmarillion, the myths and legends of the First Age of the World conceived by J.R.R. Tolkien. Returning from France and the battle of the Somme at the end of 1916, he wrote the tale in the following year.
 
Essential to the story, and never changed, is the fate that shadowed the love of Beren and Lúthien: for Beren was a mortal man, but Lúthien was an immortal elf. Her father, a great elvish lord, in deep opposition to Beren, imposed on him an impossible task that he must perform before he might wed Lúthien. This is the kernel of the legend; and it leads to the supremely heroic attempt of Beren and Lúthien together to rob the greatest of all evil beings, Melkor, called Morgoth, the Black Enemy, of a Silmaril.
 
In this book Christopher Tolkien has attempted to extract the story of Beren and Lúthien from the comprehensive work in which it was embedded; but that story was itself changing as it developed new associations within the larger history. To show something of the process whereby this legend of Middle-earth evolved over the years, he has told the story in his father's own words by giving, first, its original form, and then passages in prose and verse from later texts that illustrate the narrative as it changed. Presented together for the first time, they reveal aspects of the story, both in event and in narrative immediacy, that were afterwards lost.
 
Published on the tenth anniversary of the last Middle-earth book, the international bestseller The Children of Húrin, this new volume will similarly include drawings and color plates by Alan Lee, who also illustrated The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and went on to win Academy Awards for his work on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

Designing for People: An Introduction to Human Factors Engineering
Whether it is the car you drive or the app on your smartphone, technology has an increasingly powerful influence on you. When designed with people in mind, this influence can improve lives and productivity. This book provides a broad introduction on how to attend to the needs, capabilities, and preferences of people in the design process. We combine methods of design thinking and systems thinking to understand people's needs and evaluate whether those needs are met.  This book also provides a detailed description of the capabilities and limits of people—both mental and physical—and how these can guide the design of everything from typography to teams and from data visualization to habits. The book includes:   • Over 70 design principles for displays, controls, human-computer interaction, automation, and workspace layout • Integrative discussion of the research and theory underlying these guidelines, supported by over 1,000 references • Examples of successful and unsuccessful designs and exercises that link principles and theory to applications in consumer products, the workplace, and high risk-systems    We hope this book will give a useful introduction to students entering the field and will also serve as a reference for researchers, engineers, and designers.

The Healthcare Supply Chain: Best Practices for Operating at the Intersection of Cost, Quality, and Outcomes: Second Edition
This book was written to enhance the strategic contributions of the healthcare supply chain in a way that is most meaningful to hospitals’ and health-systems’ value-based goals. It is a useful resource for healthcare leaders, supply chain professionals in different stages of their careers, healthcare vendors, and students. Value-based reimbursement rewards providers who lower costs while improving outcomes, creating a better, more cost-effective healthcare system. Today’s providers must evaluate the clinical effectiveness of a product by examining the outcomes of the procedures in which it was used. The decision to use a costlier but more clinically effective product might result in better care and a greater financial return. This approach is called operating at the intersection of cost, quality, and outcomes—also known as CQO. Supply chain executives operate at the center of purchasing decisions and work across disciplines. They affect—though sometimes indirectly—nearly every step of patient care delivery. This makes them particularly well suited to lead CQO initiatives. We know that the supply chain reduces costs. Now supply chain professionals must become more clinically integrated and help improve patient outcomes by serving as champions of CQO.
