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.

Exponentials Made Easy or the Story of Epsilon (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Exponentials Made Easy or the Story of Epsilon Some time ago the author came across a certain little book, and although he was supposed to know all about the things explained in it, he found a great delight in reading it. In so doing he re-learned several things he had forgotten and learned a few others he had not chanced to meet before. But the most useful knowledge he derived from reading this truly delightful little book Calculus Made Easy was that, indeed, it is possible to make the study of such mathematical processes as those of the Calculus so easy that one may learn them by oneself without the help of a teacher, provided one has in one's hand the necessary guide and faithfully follows it from beginning to end. There are few branches of mathematics which seem more puzzling to beginners than the study of imaginaries and hyperbolics; indeed, many students who are no longer looking askance at or at the sign I confess that the appearance of i in a mathematical expression gives them a nerve-shattering shock, while the sight of sinh or cosh is the signal for undignified retreat.

Menopause American Psychiatric Press Inc.
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Organized for ease of use by today's busy mental health clinicians, Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide describes the latest knowledge and clinical recommendations associated with menopause in a single, concise guide that is clearly written and comprehensive in scope. Menopause is about changeAbut it is also a normal life stage traversed by most women with little or no difficulty. Not all women have symptoms as they transition to menopause, and women with symptoms experience them in different combinations and levels of intensity. The management of perimenopause and menopause is also rapidly changing. The past 5 years have seen truly dramatic changes in our scientific knowledge of and medical recommendations for perimenopause and menopause. For example, until recently, hormone replacement therapy was highly advocated as an essential aspect of care for women in perimenopause and menopause. Even the definitions used to describe the different time periods and stages associated with natural (i.e., nonsurgical) menopause have changed over time and can be confusing. Thus, Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide uses the 1994 World Health Organization Scientific Group on Research in the Menopause terminology, augmented by more recent refinements made by the Stages of Reproductive Aging Workshop. The essential Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide sheds light on the complexity and constant change integral to the study and treatment of menopause, bringing together the current work of 14 internationally recognized menopause experts in psychiatry, neuroscience, gynecology, and internal medicine. After an introductory chapter sets the contexts of midlife in women, subsequent chapters in Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide cover the following topics: -The basic physiology of the menopausal transition and menopause. -The effects of gonadal hormones on the central nervous system, and in particular, depression, anxiety, and irritability during the menopausal transition and midlife. -New research findings and clinical advice about the effect of gonadal hormones and menopause on psychotic illness in women. -An examination of the medical aspects of and the gynecologic aspects of perimenopause and menopause. -A look beyond menopause to the psychopathology and psychotherapy of older women in various cultures. The timely information contained in Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide will help mental health professionals to formulate current, best understanding and treatment for the psychological problems that some women experience as they traverse perimenopause and menopause.
Animal Activities Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Animal Activities: A First Book in Zoölogy The book here presented is the outgrowth of fifteen tyears of teaching the subject to large classes in a high school. Its aim is to interest and guide pupils in the study of living animals. Young people are usually ready to be made acquainted with their immediate neighbors in the animal world, and it is hoped that this book may be of assistance to them. In the choice and arrangement of topics the powers and interests of young students have been kept in view rather than the demands of strictly logical description and exposition. Chapter I outlines the animal kingdom in such a manner as to be useful for reference purposes. Chapter II gives directions for assisting the student in procuring his own specimens for study. Chapter III describes the activities common to all animals. With Chapter IV work on the Arthropoda begins. Animals of this group are selected for the early part of the work because living specimens can be easily collected and observed in the fall, at which time Zoology is begun in most schools. After the study of the Arthropoda, the book follows the natural order, beginning with the simplest animals and ending with the most complex. In some schools it will doubtless be better to begin with Chapter XI, and study the Arthropoda directly after the chapter on "The Earthworm". This latter order of subjects is advised when the Zoölogy course begins in the winter or spring. Throughout the book adaptation to environment is constantly pointed out.

Language is Music BERTRAMS
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Language is Music focuses on making learning foreign languages fun, easy and affordable for anyone with a desire to communicate effectively with people around the world. By applying over 100 simple tips to things you already do, such as listening to music or surfing the Web, you can experience the joy of "fluency" in any language without having to study abroad or spend money on private tutors. In Language is Music, Susanna Zaraysky masterfully shares her listening methods so that anyone can have fun learning any language. With over 100 tips and 100 free or low-cost Internet resources, you will learn how to use daily activities, such as watching T.V. or listening to music; conversation partners; and attendance at cultural events to become a masterful speaker of any tongue. "Learning foreign languages is like learning to sing a song or play music," says self-made linguist Susanna Zaraysky and author of Language is Music. Zaraysky has what you might call "an ear" for languages, having used music to successfully learn English, Russian, French, Spanish, Ladino, Italian, Portuguese, and Serbo-Croatian-all with excellent accents. (Third Edition published in January 2014.) Advance Praise for Language is Music Language is Music is music for the mind! Susanna Zaraysky has crammed this little book with big ideas about how to learn a language, including a multitude of extremely practical tips and applications. As one who has dabbled in many languages and speaks a couple fluently, I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to speak another language. -John Perkins, New York Times Bestselling Author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man "I love it! I think it will help people who want to learn, and those who are curious about additional language learning. Many people want to learn a language but are frightened, or disappointed by the courses they have taken. Reading Language is Music will encourage them to try again, on their own and with friendly supporters." -Dr. Elba Maldonado-Colon, Professor Department of Elementary Education Bilingual Program, San Jose State University "LET IT JUST ROLL OFF YOUR TONGUE. With lyrical insight and solid experience, Susanna Zaraysky, author of Language is Music, provides easy steps for learning a language. Gone are the boring, disconnected strategies that most of us remember from school. You've never learned a language this quickly and easily. Zaraysky's methods embody fun, connection, rhythm, and above all...music." -Suzanne Lettrick, M.Ed Educator and Founder of The Global Education and Action Network "Forget dictionaries and phrase books . . . Susanna Zaraysky's easy-to-use guide to language learning is indispensable for any serious language learner wanting to become fluent--not just conversationally proficient--in another language. Language is Music will teach you how to make language acquisition a part of your daily life, and to recreate the kind of total-immersion environment necessary for fluency. Highly recommended reading for aspiring polyglots. Pick up this book and you too will be all ears!" -Justin Liang, Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Marshallese, intermediate Spanish "Back in France, I spent many years learning "academic" English in school. But I progressed much faster when I forced myself to listen to the BBC or not look at the subtitles when watching an American movie. I wish I had Susanna's book with me then. It's full of creative ideas and practical tips that are indispensable complements to the traditional methods of learning foreign languages -- and it's coming from someone you can trust, she speaks so many of them!" -Philippe Levy, French native speaker
Amphibian Ecology and Conservation Oxford University Press
Medycyna > English Division
This practical manual of amphibian ecology and conservation brings together a distinguished, international group of amphibian researchers to provide a state-of-the-art review of the many new and exciting techniques used to study amphibians and to track their conservation status and population trends. The integration of ecology and conservation is a natural outcome of the types of questions posed by these disciplines: how amphibians can and should be sampled, marked, and followed through time; how abundance and population trends are measured; what are the robust statistical methods that can be used in ecology and conservation; what roles do amphibians play in community structure and function; how do animals function in their environment; and what affects the long-term persistence of species assemblages? Although emphasizing field ecology, sections on physiological ecology, genetics, landscape ecology, and disease analysis are also included. The book describes the latest statistical approaches in amphibian field ecology and conservation, as well as the use of models in interpreting field research. Much of this information is scattered in the scientific literature or not readily available, and the intention is to provide an affordable, comprehensive synthesis for use by graduate students, researchers, and practising conservationists worldwide. The book is far more than a cookbook or field guide. It is a synthesis. I hope my fellow amphibian ecologists (and discerning ecologists specializing in other taxa and systems) will join me in thanking the many folks who made this handbook a reality; we, our students, and proteges will benefit for years to come. Bulletin of the Canadian Association of Herpetologists This handbook is likely to serve as a valuable herpetological reference tool for years to come. Bulletin of the British Ecological Society
Constructive Bible Studies Forgotten Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from Constructive Bible Studies: The Priestly Element in the Old Testament This treatment of the Priestly Element in the Old Testament is intended to serve as a guide for students who wish to take up the questions relating to the subject from an historical point of view. The materials for a preliminary study of the various topics are gathered together, and arranged with suggestions as to order and method of procedure. It is thought that the work proposed is within the reach of the more mature pupils in the Sunday school, although the needs of college and theological students have been kept especially in mind. The general results of modern historical criticism have been taken as a basis for the work, since it is only from the point of view of history that these subjects may now be considered intelligently. Each special topic connected with the general subject of the Priestly Element furnishes a beautiful illustration of the growth and development of Israelitish and Jewish thought under the controlling influence of a conception of God which became more and more pure with the advancing centuries. Three methods of treatment have been employed, each being deemed best adapted to the case in hand, viz.: in Chapter I, a systematic statement of the scope of the Priestly Element; in Chapters II-IV, an historical statement covering in barest outline the story of the Priestly Element as a whole, in its progress and development; in Chapters V-XI, a classified and comparative examination (indicated by questions and suggestions based upon the material presented) of the more important special factors which, taken together, constitute the Priestly Element. Some effort has been made to indicate definitely and fully the more accessible literature on each topic. I wish to express my appreciation of the assistance rendered me by my colleague, Dr. John M. P. Smith, especially in the arrangement and verification of the scriptural references, and the references to the literature on the various topics. For obvious reasons the latter have been arranged chronologically, the literature in languages other than English being placed by itself. A second series of studies, designed to supplement and complete the present work, is in process of preparation. In these it is proposed to take up (1) the priestly literature of the Old Testament, viz., the priestly histories, the codes of legislation, the Psalms; (2) the priestly ideas as a whole; and (3) the relation of the Priestly Element to the work of Old Testament Prophecy and Wisdom.
