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.

Letters from Father Christmas Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This revised edition of Tolkien's famous illustrated letters from Father Christmas to his children includes a number of pictures and letters that have not been seen in print before. The perfect Christmas gift for Tolkien lovers of all ages. This classic festive book of Tolkien's amazing Father Christmas letters written to his children between the 1920s and the 1940s has been reworked into a new and attractive edition. It contains brand new high-quality digital reproductions of his amazing letters and pictures, including a number them that have never been printed before. 'My dear children, I am more shaky than usual this year. The North Polar Bear's fault. It was the biggest bang in the world, and the most monstrous firework there has ever been. It turned the North Pole black!' Every December an envelope bearing a stamp from the North Pole would arrive for J. R. R. Tolkien's children. Inside would be a letter in strange spidery handwriting and a beautiful coloured drawing or some sketches. The letters were from Father Christmas. They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole: * How all the reindeer got loose and scattered presents all over the place. * How the accident-prone Polar Bear climbed the North Pole and fell through the roof of Father Christmas's house into the dining-room * How he broke the Moon into four pieces and made the Man in it fall into the back garden * How there were wars with the troublesome horde of goblins who lived in the caves beneath the house! Sometimes the Polar Bear would scrawl a note, and sometimes Ilbereth the Elf would write in his elegant flowing script, adding yet more life and humour to the stories. From the first note to Tolkien's eldest son in 1920 to the final poignant letter to his daughter in 1943, this book collects all the remarkable letters and pictures in one enchanting edition. No reader, young or old, can fail to be charmed by the inventiveness of Tolkien's Letters from Father Christmas.

Opis - "Suknia balowa musi przypominać marzenie senne i przeobrażać kobietę w istotę z tego wymiaru" stwierdził kiedyś Christian Dior, dodając iż każda kobieta powinna mieć w szafie przynajmniej jedną suknię balową, gdyż to "znakomicie wpływa na jej morale". Nie ulega wątpliwości, iż posiadanie takiej kreacji potrafi zdziałać cuda dla zdrowia psychicznego również współczesnych kobiet, kilkadziesiąt lat po tym, jak francuski krawiec haute couture przelał te słowa na papier. Kiedy to pisał, suknie wieczorowe wciąż były dla kobiet z towarzystwa symbolem statusu, a przebranie się do kolacji normą de rigueur. Od tego czasu wiele się zmieniło. Jednak ten element garderoby zachował pewien stopień ekskluzywności - gdyż nadal ma w sobie coś z marzenia sennego - a jednocześnie przeszedł swoisty proces "demokratyzacji". "Niezrównana elegancja" to książka o wiecznym pragnieniu piękna i ekskluzywności.

Excerpt from The College Chums [At rise of curtain, Wilde is heard singing (off) in maudlin fashion, then enters, lugging a barber pole. He advances to center stage and sets it upright. The bottom of pole should be sufficiently weighted to permit his leaning against it without its toppling over. He leans against the pole, gives vent to a silly laugh, which is checked by a sharp hiccough. He then fishes a cigarette from coat pocket and puts it in mouth, after comedy biz of trying to locate mouth, then searches pockets for a match as he begins speech, leaning against pole.] Tom. - I told the doctor I wasn't feeling well and he told me to take something. So I did. I took a few highballs. (Laughs). Then as a chaser I took this dear old barber pole, so I would have something to lean the poor highballs against when the earth began to do a two-step, barn dance and Indian dances, which the said earth did about 15 minutes ago. I don't like that barber anyhow. He's got a double chin, both of which are devoted to conversation. Then this morning he told me he'd give me two dollars to paint this pole. I told him I would but I didn't have any striped paint. (Laughs, then sudden check with hiccough). I was standing down at the corner a few minutes ago, and a stranger came up to me and said, Young man, give me $10.00 and I'll have the janitor of that tall building turn it around for you. Go on and run along, I says, I owe that janitor $40.00 already. (Almost falls, but grabs pole and swings around it).

Tempo Rubato And Other Essays Read Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

There is in musical terminology no word under cover of which quite so many sins are committed as under tempo rubato. Chopin deservedly receives the credit for having discovered it, but many who thus credit him hold very strange ideas about it. There are those who suffer with a technic too unreliable to keep them steady in prolonged rapid passages and when they run away with the tempo they palm their weakness off as tempo rubato. Then there are those who believe that the use of tempo rubato begins with the works of Chopin and that it must not be employed in any music written before him. There are also the arch-pedants who insist that tempo rubato not only begins but also ends with Chopins compositions. All of which is, of course, pure cant, the bulwark of ignorance and bigotry. If Chopin coined the term tempo rubato, his coinage was certainly not particularly happy he could scarcely have hit upon words more ambiguous and less descriptive of their object. With freedom of time tempo libero, vacillating or wavering time tempo vacillando, or undecided time tempo indecison would have done as well and would have been more easily understood by nations that do not speak Italian, of which-by the way-Chopins knowledge was very limited. Above all, however, a clearer term would have prevented that occultism, that mystery, with which so many people still connect the tempo rubato. It is amusing to note that even some serious persons express the idea that in tempo rubato the right hand may use a certain freedom while the left hand mustkeep strict time. See Niecks Life of Chopin, 11, p. 101. A nice sort of music would result from such playing Something like the singing of a good vocalist accompanied by a poor blockhead who hammers away in strict time without yielding to the singer who, in sheer despair, must renounce all artistic expression. It is reported by some ladies that Chopin himself gave them this explanation, but-they might not have understood him as well as did Wilhelm von Lenz, to whom he said Sup pose a piece lasts so and so many minutes if only the whole lasts so long, differences in the details do not matter. The two precepts are somewhat contradictory, but of that I shall offer an explanation a little later and shall mark it with an asterisk I well remember an old gentleman, a Pole, whom I met in Paris many years ago, and who in his younger years had piano lessons from Chopin. He talked scarcely of anything else than tempo rubato the compositions of Chopin were to him only the raw material to which the tempo rubato was to be applied. He described it as unfathomable, inexplicable, and then talked for an hour explaining it. The trouble was only that, as often as I met him, the explanation was never the same, until one day he capped the climax by saying with a sigh Ah, my young friend, no one but a Pole understands the tempo rubato that is why only a Pole can play Chopin, and of all the Poles there is really only one-but, come to think of it, no-no-he cannot, either Such mystery-mongering is, of course, pure tommy- rot as much so as some of the gushing melliflux about it in which some of Chopins biographers have indulged...

Lewis Hamilton BLAKE PUBLISHING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Lewis Hamilton is the record-breaking young British hero of Formula 1. His phenomenal debut season was nothing short of a revelation, coming through against all the odds to dominate and revolutionise the world of motor racing. It was an outcome no one could have predicted: thrown in at the deep end 'on a mighty whim' by McLaren team owner Ron Dennis, not only did Lewis have to combat his own nerves and fears, he had to overcome a dissenter within his own camp. With behind-the-scenes insight into the intense rivalry between Hamilton and his teammate Fernando Alonso which threatened to derail the young Briton's dream, and the low-down on the 'spy-gate' scandal, this biography describes how Lewis handled the intensity of the media scrum around his relationship with Nicole Scherzinger and kept his dignity to emerge triumphant as he racked up sensational wins around the world. Now he has even joined iconic speedsters Damon Hill and Bradly Wiggins as a BBC Sports Personality of the Year winner. From his momentous clinching of the 2014 World Championship in Abu Dhabi to the bitter rivalry with former friend Nico Rosberg - which culminated in the German engineering a deliberate high-speed crash - bestselling sports author Frank Worrall traces the slipstream of Hamilton's incredible career as the fastest driver on the planet. This is the ultimate story of the driver whom Sir Jackie Stewart says 'has re-written the rookie rule book'. But he is a rookie no more. Lewis Hamilton has accelerated into pole position to be called Britain's greatest ever race driver.

Excerpt from The Monthly Mirror, 1807, Vol. 2: Reflecting Men and Manners; With Strictures on Their Epitome, the Stage; July, 1807 Mr. Camden recommended him to Sir Walter Raleigh, who trusted him with the care and education of his eldest son Walter, a gay spark, who could not brook Ben's rigorous treatment, but perceiving one foible in his disposition, made use of that to throw off the yoke of his government; and this was an unlucky habit Ben had contracted, through his love of jovial company, of being overtaken with liquor, which Sir Walter did, of all vices, most abominate, and hath most exclaimed against. One day, when Ben had taken a plentiful dose, and was fallen into a sound sleep, young Raleigh got a basket, and a couple of men, who layed Ben in it, and then, with a pole, carried him between their shoulders to Sir Walter, telling him their young master had sent home his tutor.

Plain Tales from Antarctica are short stories based on real incidents that occurred during the author's two-year stay as a meteorologist at Halley 3, a British Research base in Antarctica located about 500 miles from the South Pole. In 1973 to 1975, Graham Chambers was part of an eighteen-man (no women) research group that lived in this fascinating yet unforgiving landscape. He writes: "It was a unique experience and one with sights, sounds and smells which are not forgotten after forty years. "Each story is based on real events and essentially is a true recollection, barring a strictly limited amount of literary licence and the limitations of human recollection. It is worth mentioning in this respect the 'witness' phenomenon, whereby 12 people can witness the very same event and produce at least half a dozen unique recollections of it. "Thanks are due to the characters who inadvertently animated the stories. Some names have been changed and others not." About the Author: Now retired, Graham Chambers formerly worked as linguist and editor. He grew up in Middlesbrough, a large industrial town in northeast England, and currently lives in southern Portugal. Publisher's website: http://sbprabooks.com/GrahamChambers

Oxford Reader's Companion to Conrad Oxford University Press

Powieści i opowiadania

'Scholarly, ambitious and scrupulous'. This is how the TLS recently described the Oxford Reader's Companion Series. In September 2000, the book which pioneered the series, The Oxford Reader's Companion to Dickens came out in paperback. Now the Oxford Reader's Companions to Hardy, Trollope, Conrad, and George Eliot will follow on from that success. In this format these books are designed specifically to appeal to students of literature. Each contains a more comprehensive and accessible range of information than any other reference work on these writers. Jozef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski had an astonishing life. 'Pole, Catholic, and nobleman' is how he described himself as at the age of 5. He was born in the Ukraine of Polish parents and spent his childhood in exile. It was only after fifteen years at sea that he began writing in English, his third language and the one whose genius had, as he put it, 'adopted' him. Owen Knowles and Gene M. Moore, together with their team of distinguished Advisers and Contributors, have created a unique and authoritative reference work on all things Conradian.;Over 400 entries cover Conrad's novels, stories, essays, and reviews; his friends, family, and associates; films and adaptations; ships and voyages; places associated with his life and works; his influences and sources; his reputation and critical approaches to his work; historical contexts to his life. Entries include: Conrad's life: health, Polish inheritance, the sea, ships and voyages People: Borys Conrad, Apollo and Ewa Korzeniowski, J. M.;Barrie, Stephen Crane, Stefan Zeromski Places: America, Bangkok, Berdyczow, Congo, Cracow, Marseilles Novels: Almayer's Folly, Lord Jim, Nostromo Stories, essays, and reviews: 'An Anarchist', 'Typhoon', 'Autocracy and War', 'Legends', 'Tales of the Sea' Influences and Sources: James Brooke, Alighieri Dante, Charles Dickens, Napoleon Bonaparte, Emile Zola Characters: Almayer family, Mr Jones, Jim, Captain Mitchell, Nostromo, the Professor, Edith Travers Reputation: biographies, films, influences on other writers, portraits and other images, translations Historical context: First World War, Polish question, women's suffrage movement In addition to the A-Z entries the Companion offers extra material: a classified contents list with headwords grouped in thematic batches, Conrad's family tree, a useful chronology spanning Conrad's life, maps showing Conrad's travels, an index of references to Conrad's works, and an alphabetical list of frequently cited texts.

Historical Dictionary of Track and Field Scarecrow Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

While the earliest evidence of organized running can be traced back to Egypt in 3800 BCE, the modern sport of track and field evolved from rural games and church and folk festivals, and rules were drawn up in the final quarter of the 19th century in those advanced societies where enough people had the leisure time to indulge their fancies. Today, in addition to the running events, track and field includes such events as the high jump, pole vault, long jump, shot, discus, javelin, hammer, and decathlon. The Historical Dictionary of Track and Field covers the history of this sport through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 500 cross-referenced entries on key figures, places, competitions, and governing bodies within the sport. This book is an excellent access point for researchers, students, and anyone wanting to know more about the history of track and field.
