Victim's Fortune Harper Collins

Inne 1

Two reporters from the Financial Times go behind the scenes to detail both nobility and corruption in the fight for compensation of Holocaust survivors. Half a century after World War II, a small group of Americans launched a campaign to confront the world with the fact that many assets looted by the Nazis had never been returned to their owners. They wanted to write the final chapter in the story of the Holocaust's survivors, most of whom were nearing death, and wanted recognition of the debt that these victims were owed. Backed by class action lawsuits and threats of economic sanctions, a disparate group of lawyers, politicians, and Jewish advocacy groups mounted an enormous challenge against some of the world's largest corporations and governments to demand what they felt was due. After several years, they won a historic settlement of 5 billion dollars in reparations. But what began as a moral crusade had degenerated into a bare-knuckled battle that opened up painful debates across the world and within the Jewish community over justice and how to achieve it. In The Victim's Fortune, John Authers and Richard Wolffe offer a spellbinding investigative account of this international struggle -- an extraordinary political drama which unfolds against the backdrop of the twentieth century's most devastating crime.

The Life & Times of Ngamiland The story of Maun Botswana Adam Marszałek

Książki

Maun is an African village popular among hunters, photographers, nature lovers, adventurers, travelers, ecologists, geologists, and zoologists. It is also a popular place for safaris and it has a renowned reputation in the world of writers and film makers. Situated in the Okavango, it was discovered for the outside world by David Livingstone and ever since has been known as "the last Eden on Earth." Although the village is popular among visitors, only a person living in Maun can fully appreciate its beauty and value. The uniqueness of Maun lies in its remoteness from the modern world, in it being situated in the heart of the wilderness. Because of this, the villagers live in a highly diverse cultural environment, which combines elements of all historical periods, with the prehistoric and the modern existing side by side. The book features a number of historic photographs, documents, maps, and reports of the adventures of early travelers such as Livingstone and Selous. It also includes the history of the Ghanzi settlement, and even the story of the Batawana's first settlement in Kwebe, from which the recorded history of Ngamiland begins, as reported by Major Lugard to the British West Charterland Co. His wife, Nell, documented 374 plants, 92 of which were growing in the Kwebe Hills and were previously unknown to the botanic world, including Stapeli kwebensis. Her collection of plants together with her album of drawings and watercolors are displayed in Kew Gardens, London. The book is illustrated with numerous anecdotes, stories memories and opinions gathered from people who lived in Ngamiland. The list of interviewees includes: Eustace Wright, who in 1938 in Naraga became the first recorded victim of the sleeping sickness transmitted by tsetse flies, Motsamai Mpho, who described how the Bayei gained freedom from slavery in 1948, Lionel Palmer and Harry Selby, who presented the history of the first safari companies in Maun, and the Greek Cypriot traders, who recounted setting up their businesses in Ngamiland in the 1960's. According to the author, isolation proved to be beneficial for the transformation of Maun, as it provided time for the new to blend into the traditional. It also helped to preserve the great traditions of the ethnically, nationally and culturally diverse, tolerant, nature-loving and friendly society of Maun.

Heartbreak CONTINUUM

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'This final, short book, is the unfolding development of a life and a mind. It reminds us that she was never primarily a political activist, but a writer and, to herself, a scholar ...Since she died last year, a victim of her enormous size, I have come to think that Andrea Dworkin was more important than I thought at the time.' - Linda Grant, "The Jewish Quarterly". '"Heartbreak" confirms that every bolshy, out-spoken freedom fighter who is the anti-type of standard Western glamour, fast becomes a scapegoat for the hatred of unpopular and hard-to-sell ideas; such as feminism.' - "The Crack Magazine". '...explosive ...uncompromising courage ...you could not get a voice more intensely alive - in its analysis of inequities which bind and divide women across race and class, its incisive accounts of oppression and the costs of resistance, its eloquent love of creativity, and its take-no-prisoners truth-telling.' - "Times Literary Supplement". '"Heartbreak" is not the memoir of a victim. Dworkin's tone is dry and humorous. Her personality is warm and likeable and, shockingly, she has a wicked sense of humour. If Dworkin had not come into prominence, first as a victim of rape and later as a campaigner against it, she might even be taking her place alongside Fay Weldon and Margaret Atwood'. - "The Times". 'pleasingly bathetic - her persecutors are finally reduced to their proper size.' - Charlotte Raven, "New Statesman". Always innovative, often provocative, and frequently polarizing, Andrea Dworkin carved out a unique position as one of the women's movement's most influential figures, from the early days of consciousness-raising to the "post-feminist" present. She wrote thirteen books, ranging across feminist theory, fiction and poetry. Andrea Dworkin died in April 2005.

Kitty Genovese - the Murder, the Bystanders, the Crime That Changed America W W NORTON & CO

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

New York City, 1964. A young woman is stabbed to death on her front stoop a murder the New York Times called a frozen moment of dramatic, disturbing social change. The victim, Catherine Kitty Genovese, became an urban martyr, butchered by a sociopathic killer in plain sight of thirty-eight neighbors who didn t want to get involved. Her sensational case provoked an anxious outcry and launched a sociological theory known as the Bystander Effect. That s the narrative told by the Times, movies, TV programs, and countless psychology textbooks. But as award-winning author Kevin Cook reveals, the Genovese story is just that, a story. The truth is far more compelling and so is the victim. Now, on the fiftieth anniversary of her murder, Cook presents the real Kitty Genovese. She was a vibrant young woman unbeknownst to most, a lesbian a bartender working (and dancing) her way through the colorful, fast-changing New York of the 60s, a cultural kaleidoscope marred by the Kennedy assassination, the Cold War, and race riots. Downtown, Greenwich Village teemed with beatniks, folkies, and so-called misfits like Kitty and her lover. Kitty Genovese evokes the Village s gay and lesbian underground with deep feeling and colorful detail. Cook also reconstructs the crime itself, tracing the movements of Genovese s killer, Winston Moseley, whose disturbing trial testimony made him a terrifying figure to police and citizens alike, especially after his escape from Attica State Prison. Drawing on a trove of long-lost documents, plus new interviews with her lover and other key figures, Cook explores the enduring legacy of the case. His heartbreaking account of what really happened on the night Genovese died is the most accurate and chilling to date."

British detective Fiona Griffiths, one of the most engaging female protagonists in crime thrillers, is back with her toughest case yet. When the body of a young woman is found in an old 'dead house' - the annexe where the dead were stored before burial in medieval times - of a tiny church in a small town in Wales, it seems that past and present have come together in a bizarre and horrifying way. For DC Fiona Griffiths, the girl - a murder victim whose corpse was laid out with obvious tenderness - represents an irresistibly intriguing puzzle, given Fiona's unusual empathy for the dead. And when her investigations lead her to an obscure and secretive monastery hidden in a remote valley, she finds that the murder victim is far from the only victim of a dark and disturbing melding of modern crime and medieval religious practices. Only Fiona is capable of solving this brilliantly crafted mystery.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Nobel Laureate and two-time Booker prize-winning author of "Disgrace" and "The Life and Times of Michael K", J. M. Coetzee reimagines Daniel DeFoe's classic novel "Robinson Crusoe in Foe". In an act of breathtaking imagination, J.M Coetzee radically reinvents the story of Robinson Crusoe. In the early eighteenth century, Susan Barton finds herself adrift from a mutinous ship and cast ashore on a remote desert island. There she finds shelter with its only other inhabitants: a man named Cruso and his tongueless slave, Friday. In time, she builds a life for herself as Cruso's companion and, eventually, his lover. At last they are rescued by a passing ship, but only she and Friday survive the journey back to London. Determined to have her story told, she pursues the eminent man of letters Daniel Foe in the hope that he will relate truthfully her memories to the world. But with Cruso dead, Friday incapable of speech and Foe himself intent on reshaping her narrative, Barton struggles to maintain her grip on the past, only to fall victim to the seduction of storytelling itself. Treacherous, elegant and unexpectedly moving, Foe remains one of the most exquisitely composed of this pre-eminent author's works. "A small miracle of a book...of marvellous intricacy and overwhelming power". ("Washington Post"). "A superb novel". ("The New York Times"). South African author J. M. Coetzee was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2003 and was the first author to win the Booker Prize twice for his novels "Disgrace" and "The Life and Times of Michael K". His novel set during the South African apartheid, "Age of Iron", winner of the "Sunday Express" Book of the Year award is also available in Penguin paperback.
