Mary Ellen Mark is an internationally acclaimed photographer who has long been fascinated by the complex relationships between people and animals - as she puts it, "the anthropomorphic quality of animals, and the animalistic quality of man." This fascination has lured her again and again to Mexico and India, two countries that, despite their many differences, share "a primal force ...that makes the relationship between man and beast even more obvious. There is a more fundamental and intimate working relationship between the people and animals, and this relationship is something I am drawn too and try to convey in many of my photographs." Man and Beast presents an extended photo essay comprising images from Mexico and India that span some forty years. Many of the Indian images were taken while Mark was working on her classic book Indian Circus (1983), but most of the photographs have never been previously published. Infused with an unsentimental poignancy and a fully intentional anthropomorphism, Mark's photographs of animals, circus performers, children, and others are sometimes ironic, occasionally unsettling, but always remarkably engaging. Accompanying the images are a photographer's statement and a conversation between Mark and Melissa Harris, editor-in-chief, Aperture Foundation, covering Mark's lifelong passion for animals, her experiences photographing them in circuses with their trainers, and her efforts to portray the humanity of animals and the lurking beast within humans.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

The story of Mowgli, the abandoned "man-cub" who is brought up by wolves in the jungles of Central India, is one of the greatest literary myths ever created. As he embarks on a series of thrilling escapades, Mowgli encounters such unforgettable creatures as the bear Baloo, the graceful black panther Bagheera and Shere Khan, the tiger with the blazing eyes. Other animal stories in "The Jungle Books" range from the dramatic battle between good and evil in "Rikki-tikki-tav" to the macabre comedy, "The Undertakers." With "The Jungle Books," Rudyard Kipling drew on ancient beast fables, Buddhist philosophy, and memories of his Anglo-Indian childhood to create a rich, symbolic portrait of man and nature, and an eternal classic of childhood. This edition contains both of Kipling's "Jungle Books," as well as "In the Rukh," the story that introduced readers to Mowgli. Part of Penguin's beautiful Hardcover Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design

Imagine... you have a fever, perhaps malaria. You live in the tropics, Burma or India. Add to the fever a smouldering paranoia, a drug-induced hallucination creeping in from the subconscious which infects the way you see and understand people and atmospheres, and you will have experienced Kavans unusual and disturbing mind at work. This is a slice of domestic nightmare set in the tropics, both horribly unreal because of its peculiar intensity and horribly real in the dysfunction and hate of a mismatched couple whose lives exist in a monstrous monotony of repetition, boredom and utter loss of purpose. Mr Dog Head and the girl are the unequal couple: she is the intellectual, sensitive and unsure. He is brutish, a destroyer of womens souls, an empty drinker, a man twice her age who rapes her and swipes at the rats with a tennis racquet as they run through the rooms. The couple cannot connect... save in the wary animal-like way he watches and hates her, and in her ever-silent response. He does not know who he is around her, or what he wants. He is a clockwork beast ranging in a sweltering relationship hell. And she is also stuck, unable to get out of this role. The story is repeated, the scene changing little as if the movement required to alter life is too hard. But even a tiny difference can have a big effect. And it does. The book is strangeness itself, a monochrome negative on the one hand, but simultaneously bursting with lurid agonising colour on the other. The violence may not be graphic but it shudders on every page: the pre-monsoon skies, the plotting servants, the prison of a house for both jailer and jailed who are tied in soulless extremis until one of them manages to stop the mechanism and make a bid for freedom. The only bit of normality is in the figure of Suede Boots, a young man who visits the girl, is banned from the house, and urges her to escape. Mysterious and page-turning with a migrainous intensity, Kavan raises up the infinite question, Who are you?, the cry of the brain-fever birds outside, deafening, screaming, crazy. Fascinating inner territory with no map. (Kirkus UK)

Powieści i opowiadania

Rudyard Kipling was a major figure of English literature, who used the full power and intensity of his imagination and his writing ability in his excursions into fantasy. Kipling, one of England's greatest writers, was born in Bombay. He was educated in England, but returned to India in 1882. He began writing fantasy and supernatural stories set in his native continent, such as 'The Phantom Rickshaw' and 'The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes', and his most famous weird story is 'The Mark of the Beast' (1890), about a man cursed to transform into a were-leopard. This Masterwork, edited by Stephen Jones, Britain's most accomplished and acclaimed anthologist, collects all Kipling's weird fiction for the first time; the stories range from traditional ghostly tales to psychological horror.
