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.

Dawn Robinson-Walsh - Bude Amberley Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1800, Bude would have been lucky to have a population of 100 people, but people flocked to the town for work when the canal, with its unique series of inclined planes, opened. When the canal closed, Bude would have crumbled, but for the developing tourist trade. The canal totally changed the topography in Bude. Victorian engineers built the breakwater and changed the course of the river to scour out a makeshift harbour. They also built a big sea lock. Today the breakwater is used by tourists for fabulous views to Summerleaze Beach and beyond, and for fishing. Bude has had its share of disasters. The River Neet flooded the Strand and the Crescent in 1903, the 1950s and 1993, and in 1891 there was a great blizzard. The Strand now looks very different to the 1860s when it was dominated by warehouses. As tourism impacted, many old buildings such as the cinema (demolished 1986) disappeared. Modern Bude has evolved, with changes to place names, buildings and focus, but it remains a beautiful town much loved by locals and visitors alike. Join author Dawn Robinson-Walsh as she explores the town's history through this fascinating selection of postcards.

Hertfordshire's Historic Inland Waterway Amberley Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Hertfordshire's Historic Inland Waterway: Batchworth to Berkhamsted takes the reader on a fascinating journey along the towpath of the Grand Union Canal, which meanders through what is arguably one of the most picturesque stretches of inland waterway in the county. Using a vibrant selection of old picture postcards and photographs, together with superb modern-day images, John Cooper traces the history of the canal from its beginnings at the start of the early nineteenth century as an essential means of transporting raw materials to the new factories and mills, to its eventual decline in the mid-twentieth century and its renaissance with the emerging pleasure boat business. During this time, canalside industries thrived, firms like W. H. Walker of Rickmansworth, where many of the narrowboats on what was then the Grand Junction Canal were built; the highly successful John Dickinson paper mills and the Frogmore Mill at Apsley, home of the world's oldest mechanised mill, still producing paper. We pass the magnificent Grade II listed Croxley Great Barn, a fourteenth-century threshing barn, before arriving and Ironbridge Lock in the beautiful Cassiobury Park, once the vast estate of the Earls of Essex. Wandering past quaint waterside inns, we reach our destination - the attractive country town of Berkhamsted, with its ruins of the eleventh-century castle. Interesting anecdotes and a wealth of information abound in this well-illustrated book about Hertfordshire's historic inland waterway.

Great Torrington & District Through Time Amberley Publishing Local

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Great Torrington, or Cheping Torrington as it was once known (Chipping being the old name for market) was a considerable town, even in medieval times. It grew steadily from its agricultural roots through an industrial phase and was at the centre of road, canal and railway links. In Victorian times it had mills for corn, sawmills, grist mills and tucking mills, lime kilns and a glove-making factory, which employed 1,000 people, mostly in their own homes. Then there was a fell mongers and skivers works for curing the chamois leather to supply the glove factory. In the twentieth century a giant milk and butter processing plant and glass works were built here. One of Devon's largest land owners, the Rolles, made their home here in the grandest house in North Devon, Stevenstone, and they still live in the area at Heanton Satchville. Further back in history, the town was the scene of a bloody battle during the Civil War, and must be the only town in England to have had its church accidentally blown up by gunpowder kegs when over 200 prisoners locked up inside killed. Many artefacts from Torrington's colourful past can still be found here: the castle walls, built first in the thirteenth century. The remains of the canal, built without act of Parliament by John Rolle, in 1823, has been preserved by the Torrington Commoners and makes an attractive walk alongside the River Torridge. Then there was an early narrow gauge railway built to bring china clay from the pits at Peters Marland to be distributed to the china companies in the Midlands.

Runcorn Through the Ages Amberley Publishing Local

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The ton of Runcorn, just across the River Mersey from Widnes, has a very interesting history. It is thought that the earliest reference to the town is in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, and an Anglo-Saxon stronghold was situated there. The key developments in the town's history were witnessed during the Industrial Revolution, when Runcorn turned into an industrial hub on the banks of the Mersey. Heavy industry such as soap and alkali works soon moved in, as did major transportation links, including the Bridgewater Canal. Today, Runcorn continues its strong industrial heritage as a cargo port. In this pictorial look at the town through the ages, it is possible to see the growth of this once small village to the town known and loved by locals and visitors alike.

Falkirk Amberley Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Falkirk has a long and intriguing history. The Antonine Wall, built by the Romans to mark the northern frontier of the empire, passed through the town. Its unique location at the junction of the Forth and Clyde Canal and the Union Canal led to its prominence during the Industrial Revolution as a major centre for iron casting, which brought prosperity. Today Falkirk enjoys a reputation as one of Scotland's most beautiful towns and it boasts popular tourist attractions such as the Falkirk Wheel and the breathtaking Kelpie statues, both of which complement and build upon its industrial heritage. Using old images juxtaposed with modern photography, author Jack Gillon explores how the town has changed and developed over the years.
