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.

Hub Cities in the Knowledge Economy ASHGATE PUBLISHING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The overarching research topic addressed in this book is the complex and multifaceted interaction between infrastructural accessibility/connectivity of city-regions on the one hand and knowledge generation in these city-regions on the other hand. To this end, the book brings together chapters analysing how infrastructural accessibility is related to changing patterns of business location of knowledge-intensive industries in city-regions. The chapters in this book specifically dwell on recent manifestations of and developments in the accessibility/knowledge-nexus, with a particular metageographical focus on how this materializes in major city-regions.In the different chapters, this shifting relation is broached from different perspectives (seaports, airports, brainports), at different scales (ranging from global-scale analyses to case studies), and by adopting a variety of methodologies (straddling the wide variety of methodological approaches currently adopted in human geography research). Researchers contributing to this edited volume come from different scholarly backgrounds (sociology, human geography, regional planning), which allows for a varied treatise of this research topic.

Urban Development Challenges, Risks and Resilience in Asian Mega Cities Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In this book, an interdisciplinary research group of faculty members, researchers, professionals, and planners contributed to an understanding of the dynamics and dimensions of emerging challenges and risks in megacities in the rapidly changing urban environments in Asia and examined emerging resilience themes from the point of view of sustainability and public policy. The world's urban population in 2009 was approximately 3.4 billion and Asia's urban population was about 1.72 billion. Between 2010 and 2020, 411 million people will be added to Asian cities (60 % of the growth in the world's urban population). By 2020, of the world's urban population of 4.2 billion, approximately 2.2 billion will be in Asia. China and India will contribute 31.3 % of the total world urban population by 2025. Developing Asia's projected global share of CO2 emissions for energy consumption will increase from 30 % in 2006 to 43 % by 2030. City regions serve as magnets for people, enterprise, and culture, but with urbanisation , the worst form of visible poverty becomes prominent. The Asian region, with a slum population of an estimated 505.5 million people, remains host to over half of the world's slum population . The book provides information on a comprehensive range of environmental threats faced by the inhabitants of megacities. It also offers a wide and multidisciplinary group of case studies from rapidly growing megacities (with populations of more than 5 million) from developed and developing countries of Asia.

Cultures of International Exhibitions 1840-1940 Ashgate Publishing Limited

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Beyond the great exhibitions, expositions universelles and world fairs in London, Paris or Chicago, numerous smaller, yet ambitious exhibitions took place in provincial cities and towns across the world. Focusing on the period between 1840 and 1940, this volume takes a novel look at the exhibitionary cultures of this period and examines the motivations, scope, and impact of lesser-known exhibitions in, for example, Australia, Japan, Brazil, as well as a number of European countries. The individual case studies included explore the role of these exhibitions in the global exhibitionary network and consider their a "marginalitya (TM) related to their location and omission by academic research so far. The chapters also highlight a number of important issues from regional or national identities, the role of modernisation and tradition, to the relationship between capital cities and provincial towns present in these exhibitions. They also address the key topic of colonial exhibitions as well as the displays of arts and design in the context of the so-called marginal fairs. Cultures of International Exhibitions 1840-1940 : Great Exhibitions in the Margins therefore opens up new angles in the way the global phenomenon of a great exhibition can be examined through the prism of the regional, and will make a vital contribution to those interested in exhibition studies and related fields.

Modes of Foreign Relations and Political Economy PLUTO PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Winner of the Deutscher Memorial Prize 2008. 'For years to come, this is a book that will be essential reading.' Robert Albritton, Professor Emeritus, York University, Canada 'A majesterial account of "foreign relations" that is at once conceptually innovative and deeply historical. This impressive work deserves a very wide readership.' Dr Randall Germain, Associate Professor, Carleton University, Canada. 'A pioneering and ambitious work, rich in conceptual adjudication and historical detail ...Kees van der Pijl argues [in favour of] a reformulation of international relations theory and history as a whole. A work of scholarship, imagination, cogency and irreducible humanistic optimism.' Professor Fred Halliday, London School of Economics 'An intellectual tour de force! This important, innovative and insightful book challenges the dominant Euro-centric and state-centric approach to international relations.' Susanne Soederberg, Canada Research Chair, Department of Development Studies, Queen's University, Canada. 'A masterful work of historical materialism.' Ronnie D. Lipschutz, Professor of Politics, University of California, Santa Cruz 'Kees presents his analysis without being encumbered by a nation-state centric framework. His highly accessible tour-de-force is rich, provocative and interesting.' George Wright, Professor Emeritus, Department of Political Science, California State University 'Tracing the history of "foreign relations," Kees van der Pijl shows that they are inscribed in daily life. Nomads, Empires, States is an artful study that redefines the field of international studies.' James H. Mittelman, Professor, American University, Washington, DC This book breaks new ground in the way we think about international relations theory. Kees van der Pijl argues that by making the "nation-state" the focus of international relations, the discipline has become Euro-centric and a-historical. Theories of imperialism and historic civilisations, and their relation to world order, have been discarded. With more than half the world's population living in cities, with unprecedented levels of migration, global politics is present on every street corner. The "international" is no longer only a balance of power among states, but includes tribal relations making a comeback in various ways. Outlining a new approach to IR theory, the book makes a case for a re-reading of world history in terms of foreign relations, and shows what it reveals about both our past and our future.

China's Urbanization: Theories, Strategies and Policies Paths International Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The book introduces the history and development of urbanization in China and analyzes the strategies, policies and economic theories of the Chinese government during the process of urbanization. From a strategic height, this book discusses urbanization with Chinese characteristics, with analysis covering the historical process, realistic pathway, future direction, objectives, challenges and warnings, as well as the plans, policies, and initiatives adopted by the Chinese Government. It demonstrates in plain and concise language that urbanization is the inevitable result of modernization and the necessary way to a moderately prosperous society, taking into account the new achievements in academic research, new changes in economic and social life, and the realities of the times. China is in transition from an agricultural society to a newly industrialized one. As a result, urbanizing cities is an inevitable process for further development. During the transformation in finance, industry and politics, many corresponding changes must be made for functional urban planning. This book aims to clarify the situation, analyze the issues and find solutions to bring critical thinking on China's urbanization to global readers. Supported by statistical data and case studies, this book emphasizes concrete evidence and conclusions based on China's experience rather than just theory. It is illustrated by graphs and tables.
