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.

Landscape, politics and history: the Italian mountains as a crucible of national and natural identity. This book is part of a wider current in environmental history, that explores the links between nature and nation. It uncovers how Italian identity and mountains have constituted one another. It argues that state regimes since unification in 1861 have made mountains into national symbols and resources, thereby affecting mountain communities and ecosystems. The nationalisation of Italian mountains has been a story of military conquest and resistance, ecological and social transformation, expropriating resources and imposing meanings. The wind of 'big' history was rolling through the Alps and the Apennines: State building and national identities, totalitarianism and democracy, economic development and environmental protection, scientific knowledge and vernacular practices are the substance of this book. The book starts with the revaluation of mountains as the repository of the last Italian wilderness and chronicles the discovery/ invention of mountains as wild, primitive, and rebellious places needing to be tamed. War World I permanently transformed mountain landscapes and people, nationalising both. When the Fascists came to power, the process of politicisation of mountains reached its acme; the regime constructed and exploited mountains both rhetorically and materially, on one hand celebrating ruralism and rural people and, on the other, giving mountain natural resources to large hydro-electric corporations. Having been the sanctuary of Resistance against the Nazi-Fascist occupation, the Italian mountains were emptied by the economic boom of the 1960s; only recently have the green of natural parks and the white of the ski resorts become the distinctive colors of the new, tourist-oriented Italian mountains.

Here then are Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche on some of the things that bother us all; lack of money, the pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety, the fear of failure and the pressure to conform.

Critical Commentary and Paraphrase, Vol. 1 of 6 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Critical Commentary and Paraphrase, Vol. 1 of 6: On the Old and New Testament and the Apocrypha Having been persuaded to put together some scattered notes, which I long ago made upon several places of Holy Scripture, I began the last year to consider some texts in the Book of Genesis. Where I soon found there would be a necessity of making an entire commentary, upon a good part of it: and therefore I resolved to go through the whole, in the same manner as I had done the three first chapters. After I had finished the better half of my work, I was informed that Mons. le Clere had published a Critical Commentary upon the same Book: but whether I have concurred in any thing with him, or contradicted him, I am not able to say; having wanted leisure to peruse his work, by reason of the public business, which came upon me in the end of the year: when I likewise understood, that a very learned friend and brother had put into the press. Annotations upon all the five books of Moses. But by communicating some of our papers to each other, we found there would be no reason that either of us should lay aside our design; but go on, in our several ways, to make the Scriptures better understood, by all sorts of persons: for all helps are little enough in this age; which seems to take pleasure in being ignorant of the most important truths. In which we are so particularly instructed by Moses, as by no other author, nor by all the authors that are, or have been known to be, extant in the world. For to him we owe the knowledge of the beginning of the world; of the first parents of mankind; the inventors of arts; the original of nations; the founders of kingdoms and empires; the institution of laws; the fountain of religious rites; yea, of all the ancient mythology; and, which is most considerable, the means of propagating that sense of God and of religion, which mankind brought into the world with them; and how it came to be corrupted. There have been those who have taken the liberty to say, that it is impossible to give any tolerable account of the creation of the world, in six days; of the situation of Paradise; the fall of our first parents, by the seduction of a serpent, &c. But I hope I have made it appear, there is no ground for such presumptuous words: but very good reason to believe every thing that Moses hath related: without Vol. I. forsaking the literal sense, and betaking ourselves to, I know not what, allegorical interpretations. Particularly, I find the truth of what I have noted concerning Paradise very much confirmed by a learned and judicious discourse of Mons. Huetius ;which I did not meet withal till I had made an end of these Commentaries: but then took a review of what I had written, and found cause to correct what 1 had noted out of Mr. Carver, concerning the spring of Tigris and Euphrates. I might also have given a clearer account of the deluge, if I had observed some things which are come to my notice since these papers went to the press: but I hope I have said enough to evince that it is not so incredible, as some have pretended. For, having made the largest concessions concerning the height of the highest mountains, which, according to the old opinion, I have allowed may be thirty miles high. Gen. vii. 19. (whereas if, instead of thirty, I had said not above three perpendicular, I had had the best of the modern philosophers to defend me), it appears there might be water enough to cover the loftiest of them; as Moses hath related. Whose account of the families by whom the earth was peopled after the flood, is so surprisingly agreeable to all the records that remain in any language, of the several nations of the earth; that it carries with it an uncontrollable evidence of his sincerity and truth, as well as of his admirable universal knowledge. For, as there is no writer that hath given us an account of so many n

Excerpt from God Returns to the Vuelta Abajo: A Tale of the Cuban Vega IT was the latter part of Augus planters of Old Horseshoe, in Vuelta Abajo, were making seed beds. At the Sumidero, old Bernardo's vega, the men were down in the tumba, or clearing, some of them turn ing up long' narrow beds in the mellow soil, and others burning off more land in preparation. The girl, Paula, coming: out of the palm-thatched cottage on the'hill above'witha a tin of coffee for the workers, inhaled the pungent odor of smoke with delight. It meant planting time, and that is always the Spring of hope to~far,m dwell ers. One forgets that it frequently pleases Heaven to send failure, and one remembers the happy years, the years of full harvest. Paula's father; Bernardo, was the wisest man in the world; so, if any money were made, he was sure to have his share. If the crop 'went well, he had promised her a trip to Consolacion in the ox - cart, and her chorce of all the beautiful hats in town. How wonderful it would be to own a hat! She would be very proud, of course, butat least she would not put on all the airs Rosita did with her bridal hat. Rosita was absurd - and married to such a homely man! Eandres was gaunt' and hook-nosed, with stooped shoulders that made even his wedding suit look queer. And Felicia engaged to poor cross-eyed Juanito! How could they do it?of cou'rse Mamita had told Paula that love is blind to such imperfections, that love beau tifies. But Paula did not care to experiment with these miracles. She paused for a moment under, the ceiba tree and whispered a prayer to San Antonio to send her a handsome husband. Forgetful Of the tin of cooling coffee, she looked out over the scene of tr0pic loveliness, dream ing. Beyond were the blue-green mountains Wlth their deep purple shadows; the foothills already dotted with brown newly-plowed fields; the winding road; and then, directly below'her, the lagoon, repeating the Whole pic tureupside down, As she gazed into] this crystal mirror a horseman, a stranger to her, rounded'the turn in the road and ap peared reżected in the tranquil water. He was riding at a logglng gait that covered the ground rapidly, but on see ing the girl under the ceiba tree he reined in his horse sharply and stared up at her aftef the frank fashio'n of the Cubans. There was something'about this stranger that made Paula's breath come quickly. She looked up, from the reżection and gazed into his amber - colored eyes. She felt a strange excitement; and then it was as'if a part of herself, her soul maybe, left her body and rushed acrossthe space called by the same part of him The feeling was so strange that. She shivered, so new to her that she was afraid, as if the whole fabric of her simple life were threat ened. And her innermost being seemed to call out to her, telling her there was something she must say to this man. She wanted to call out to him, St0p! Wait till I under stand! Wait till I find out what it is I must say to you! One 'does not Speak in that way to strangers, and Paula turned red under her tan. She started' guiltily, remember ing her'errand, and hurried down to the tumba'. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The year is 2028. Two doctors from Kalamazoo, Michigan, husband and wife are caught up in an unimaginable holocaust engulfing the world---the Nazi Third Reich revived and ruled by the Fuehrer on a planetary scale. For years Ethan and Elizabeth had sensed that these troubles were coming and had done all they could to prepare, storing guns and ammo, food and clothing, medicines, survival gear of all kinds in a cave in the Big Horn Mountains on the slopes of Cloud Peak in Wyoming. Both of them pilots, they had purchased an airplane, believing they would escape in it together and fly to Cloud Peak. But they had to separate that hot, humid August night when they made their grand get-away. Is this the time predicted by the Hebrew prophets? Is this the time predicted by the New Testament apostles? Is this the Apocalypse? Is this how it will look when it happens? And how would you handle things if you found yourself and your loved ones also caught up in a tragedy of this magnitude? How would I handle it? These are difficult questions to ask and even more difficult, perhaps, to answer. Truth be told, there are no easy answers. Come and see what happened to Ethan and Elizabeth, the two doctors from Kalamazoo in the year 2028 and beyond. Come and live through it with them, come and suffer with them, weep with them, be joyful with them, be sad, be weary, be hopeful, be glad and thankful with them; come and lose everything with them, come and triumph with them. Come and see... Frank Willard is my pen name for CLOUD PEAK, my first venture into the suspense-thriller genre. And what better scenario could there be for this genre than the end of the world as we know it? Admittedly, I had always wanted to address the subject of the Apocalypse and finally I have via this novel and its sequel which I hope to begin soon. Perhaps there will be sequels after sequels, the theme of the Apocalypse being vast and endless and the possibilities for more suspense-thrillers being vast and endless, as well. For most of my life I have been a student of history; and I have been an observer of what some would call megatrends, the forces inexorably shaping human events, molding them and morphing them in a thousand times a thousand ways until, perhaps, we see them ever more clearly with the passage of time. This life of observation, study, and research has molded me; it has made me who I am, in addition to the other normal experiences of life, the things we all enjoy, endure, relish, disdain, like, dislike, and love and hate--these things, the good and the bad, come with our existence in this world. But there is another side to it, it seems to me. It seems there must be something even greater than megatrends, and greater than this earthly life of positives and negatives, there has to be. One day there must be a final showdown with evil and a final resolution to humanity's collective problems as ominous as that sounds. Perhaps the Apocalypse is ultimately necessary. Frank Willard lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan with his wife who is a teacher. Together they have a blended family of five children and their mates.

Coalfield Jews An Appalachian History University of Illinois Press

Inne 1

Coalfield Jews explores the intersection of two simultaneous historic events: central Appalachia's transformative coal boom (1880s-1920), and the mass migration of eastern European Jews to America. Traveling to southern West Virginia, eastern Kentucky, and southwestern Virginia to investigate the coal boom's opportunities, some Jewish immigrants found success as retailers and established numerous small but flourishing Jewish communities. Deborah R. Weiner's Coalfield Jews provides the first extended study of Jews in Appalachia, exploring where they settled, how they made their place within a surprisingly receptive dominant culture, how they competed with coal company stores, interacted with their non-Jewish neighbors, and maintained a strong Jewish identity deep in the heart of the Appalachian mountains. To tell this story, Weiner draws on a wide range of primary sources in social, cultural, religious, labor, economic, and regional history. She also includes moving personal statements, from oral histories as well as archival sources, to create a holistic portrayal of Jewish life that will challenge commonly held views of Appalachia as well as the American Jewish experience. * A holistic portrayal of Jewish communities in the Southern coalfields

In the summer of 1986, however, almost overnight, her life took a radical turn. Following inner mystical guidance, she turned west, to the mountains of Colorado, to find God more deeply. In her quest for genuine wisdom, compassion and service, she left behind the vestiges of her previous life to pursue a path of renunciation and to apprentice herself to a spiritual teacher. How she made that choice, what that commitment entailed and how it changed every aspect of her life is what this book is about. Despite the long-standing tradition of the monastic life in many religions, and the relationship of master and disciple, the media today paint a negative, one-sided view of any situation that smacks of "cult" or "guru". Rather than hiding from the controversy, Janet Rose encounters it head-on and presents a real-life view of work with a teacher and participation in a spiritual community. This clearly written and deeply personal book presents an alternative to the status quo of security, success and power.

Excerpt from Report of the Commissioners of Fisheries of the State of California: For the Years 1870 and 1871 California has a seacoast extending through ten degrees of latitude, and a shore line of nearly eight hundred miles. The Coast Range of mountains, which adjoins the coast line for the greater part of this dis tance, creates by its western watershed nearly one hundred streams and rivers emptying into the Pacific Ocean. These streams and rivers vary from twenty to sixty miles in length. The drainage of the western slope of the Sierra Nevada, through seven degrees of latitude, forms several hundred streams, whose united waters make the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers - the first navigable for a distance of one hundred and eighty miles, and the last navigable one hundred miles from the ocean. The waters from the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada żow into brackish and salt lakes, in the State of Nevada, having no outlet into the ocean. Pyramid, the largest of these lakes, receiving the waters of the Truckee River, is forty miles long and twenty miles wide. The inland bays and fresh water lakes of California cover more than six hundred and fifty square miles - an area half as large as the State of Rhode Island. These few statistics are given that it may be clearly understood how extensive is the field over which, under the law, the Board is expected to prevent the wanton destruction of fish and required to compel the owners of dams to permit the free passage of fish to their native spawn ing beds. When it is further understood that the members of the Board neither receive nor expect compensation for their services other than the satisfaction of doing something towards the preservation of the fish now in our waters and adding to the food supply of the people by the introduction of new varieties, it will be acknowledged that if but a beginning has been made in this work, at least public attention has been called to the importance of the subject. If a few men of intelligence, living on the banks of each bay, river, and lake, will inform themselves of what has been done in other States and countries for the propagation and preservation of fish, they will create a public opinion that will cause the enactment of proper laws and compel their enforcement. The result will be that after a few years our river fisheries Will be largely increased, giving employment to a large number of men, and furnishing a cheap supply of nutritious food to many more people.

Foxfire 11 Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

With this newest volume in the Foxfire series comes a wealth of the kind of folk wisdom and values of simple living that have made these volumes beloved bestsellers for the last three decades, with more than two million copies in print. In 1966, in the Appalachian Mountains of Northeast Georgia, Eliot Wigginton and his students founded a quarterly magazine that they named Foxfire, after a phosphorescent lichen. In 1972, several articles from the magazine were published in book form, and the acclaimed Foxfire series was born. Almost thirty years later, in this age of technology and cyber-living, the books teach a philosophy of simplicity in living that is truly enduring in its appeal. This new volume--Foxfire 11--celebrates the rituals and recipes of the Appalachian homeplace, including a one-hundred page section on herbal remedies, and segments about planting and growing a garden, preserving and pickling, smoking and salting, honey making, beekeeping, and fishing, as well as hundreds of the kind of spritied firsthand narrative accounts from Appalachian community members that exemplify the Foxfire style. Much more than "how-to" books, the Foxfire series is a publishing phenomenon and a way of life, teaching creative self-sufficiency, the art of natural remedies, home crafts, and other country folkways, fascinating to everyone interested in rediscovering the virtues of simple life.

Southern Journeys: Tourism, History, and Culture in the Modern South Univ of Alabama Pr

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Anyone who has seen Rock City, wandered the grounds of Graceland, hiked in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, or watched the mermaids swim at Weeki Wachee knows the southern United States offers visitors a rich variety of scenic, cultural, and leisure activities. Tourism has been, and is still, one of the most powerful economic forces in the modern South. It is a multibillion-dollar industry that creates jobs and generates revenue while drawing visitors from around the world to enjoy the region's natural and man-made attractions. This collection of 11 essays explores tourism as a defining force in southern history by focusing on particular influences and localities. Alecia Long examines sex as a fundamental component of tourism in New Orleans in the early 20th century, while Brooks Blevins describes how tourism served as a modernizing influence on the Arkansas Ozarks, even as the region promoted itself as a land of quaint, primitive hillbillies. Anne Whisnant chronicles the battle between North Carolina officials building the Blue Ridge Parkway and the owner of Little Switzerland, who fought for access and advertising along the scenic highway. One essay probes the racial politics behind the development of Hilton Head Island, while another looks at the growth of Florida's panhandle into a "redneck Riviera," catering principally to southerners, rather than northern tourists. Southern Journeys is a pioneering work in southern history. It introduces a new window through which to view the region's distinctiveness. Scholars and students of environmental history, business history, labor history, and social history will all benefit from a consideration of the place of tourism in southern life.
