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.

Fauna of British India, Vol. 2 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Fauna of British India, Vol. 2: Including Ceylon and Burma That part of the 'Fauna of British India' which relates to Fishes is completed by the publication of the present volume. Unhappily the author of the work has not lived to see it appear; the illness that, in the Introduction to the first volume, was noticed as having prevented his correcting the proofs, terminated fatally almost on the day when that volume was issued- Indian naturalists will not soon forget the great additions made by Dr. Francis Day to our knowledge of Indian fishes, and they will assuredly join the Editor of the present series in deploring the loss of one who, by the researches of a lifetime, by his numerous published works, and by admirable figures, has rendered such signal service to Indian Zoology. The Editor has found it necessary in this second volume and in part of the first, for the sake of saving space, to make some slight excisions in the text, and to recast in many cases the synopses of genera and species.

I'm a Stranger Here Myself Corgi Books

Historia

In 1990, spurred on by the success of his writing and his marriage to the writer Aileen Armitage, Deric Longden made a momentous move to a foreign country. Huddersfield, in Yorkshire, with its distinctive manners and customs and its wealth of remarkable characters, would surely provide him with all the material he needed for his planned book, one of the great classics of travel literature. But two years later, when he sat down to write, the major events of everyday life kept intruding: the demands of a houseful of cats, the problem of getting the cooker repaired, the memories evoked by sorting through old clothes in the wardrobe..."Still, I'm a Stranger Here Myself" is a travel book of a kind, where the most hilarious adventures can happen between the kitchen and the bathroom, and where a morning's shopping can provide enough anecdotes to last a lifetime. Once again, Deric Longden demonstrates his genius for taking the most ordinary materials of life and transforming them with his own special brand of gentle, inspired humour.

Marco Polo Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Marco Polo: His Travels and Adventures The reader is carried back, in the present volume, to a period two centuries previous to the discovery of the route to India by Vasco da Gama, and to the conquest of Peru by Pizarro. A young Venetian of the thirteenth century, brought up amid luxury and wealth, of a bold spirit and a curious mind, went forth from his home in the beautiful Queen City of the Adriatic, and for many years lived among a far-off Asiatic people, and at a court of barbaric and yet splendid pomp. He made many far and dangerous journeyings in the wild distant lands and among the fierce tribes of Cathay, Thibet, India, and Abyssinia. His life was passed amid an almost incessant succession of exciting events, of strange adventures, and of hair-breadth escapes.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is the story of the amazing and uncommon life of George Bent-a "halfbreed" born to a prominent white trader and his Indian wife-whose lifetime spanned one of the most exciting epochs in our nation's history. Raised as a Cheyenne but educated in white schools, George Bent fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War, became a Cheyenne warrior and survived the horrific 1864 Sand Creek Massacre, rode and killed for revenge with the ferocious Cheyenne Dog Soldiers, and later became a prominent interpreter and negotiator for whites and adviser to tribal leaders. He hobnobbed with frontier legends Kit Carson, Buffalo Bill, Wild Bill Hickok, and George Custer, and fought side-by-side with great Indian leaders. After a lifetime of adventures and misfortunes, accomplishments and failures, George Bent made a lasting contribution to the memory of his people by sharing with historians the story of the fighting Cheyennes.

Home Almanac Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Home Almanac: A Souvenir Christopher Columbus, the great navigator, I was probably born in Genoa, and even the house of his birth has, it is thought, been identified. The date of his birth has been conjecturally established as between March, 1446, and March, 1447. Though virtually the greatest man of his era, there is little definite information about his family and his early life. He was the son of a wool comber, and attended the then great school of learning in Pavia, where he evinced a taste for astronomy and cosmography. He early went to sea, and made several voyages in the Mediterra. nean. In Lisbon, in 1470, he married the daughter of an Italian named Perestrello, an eminent navigator in the Portuguese service, and with her obtained many valuable charts, journals and memoranda. Here Columbus first appears to have imbibed the idea of land to the westward, which he was destined to establish as a fact. After long, disheartening years, on the third of August, 1492, Columbus set sail from the Bar of Saltes, near Palos. On the twelfth of October he sighted land, which proved to be one of the Bahama Islands. After discovering several other of the West India Islands, Columbus set sail again for Spain, where he arrived on March 15th, 1493, and was received with every demonstration of joy and admiration, as well by the people as the court. Within the next twelve years Columbus made several other voyages, adding to his valuable discoveries the Caribbee Islands, Jamaica, Trinidad, and Paria, on the coast of South America. On May 20th, 1506, this the noblest navigator the world has ever seen, died at Valladolid, and King Ferdinand erected a magnificent monument to his memory. Biography furnishes no parallel to the life of Christopher Columbus. Great men there have been who have met with disappointment and injustice, but there is perhaps no other instance of a great man whom disappointments and injustice did not dishearten and disgust; who had his greatness recognized in his lifetime, and yet was robbed of the emoluments it entitled him to, and who, after death, had the honor he had so hardly won conferred upon another.

Bob Marley Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

What was it about Bob Marley that made him so popular in a world dominated by rock'n'roll? How is that he has not only remained the single most successful reggae artist ever, but has also become a shining beacon of radicalism and peace to generation after generation of fans across the globe? On May 11, 1981, a little after 11.30 in the morning, Bob Marley died. The man who introduced reggae to a worldwide audience, in his own lifetime he had already become a hero figure in the classic mythological sense. From immensely humble beginnings and with talent and religious belief his only weapons, the Jamaican recording artist applied himself with unstinting perseverance to spreading his prophetic musical message. And he had achieved it: only a year earlier, Bob Marley and The Wailers' tour of Europe had seen them perform to the largest audiences a musical act had up to that point experienced. Record sales of Marley's albums before his death were spectacular; in the years since his death they have become phenomenal, as each new generation discovers afresh the remarkable power of his music. Chris Salewicz, who had a sequence of adventures with Bob Marley in Jamaica in 1979, offers us a comprehensive and detailed account of Bob Marley's life and the world in which he grew up and came to dominate. Never-before-heard interviews with dozens of people who knew Marley are woven through a narrative that brings to life not only the Rastafari religion and the musical scene in Jamaica, but also the spirit of the man himself.

Excerpt from Burnsiana: Speeches Prof. John Wilson, Rev. Dr. Wallace, Gen. Jas; A. Garfield, Hon. S. S. Cox, Hon. W. P. Frye, Hon. J. Proctor Knott, and Others, With Poems on Burns A grand demonstration in honor of the genius of Robert Burns was suggested to the people of Scotland by the arrival from India of Col. William Burns, the poet's second son. August 6, 1844. was selected as a national holiday in Scotland. The great festival was presided over by the Earl of Eglinton, supported by hundreds of the nobility and men of letters, whose names filled columns of the public journals of that time. We select from the able speeches made on the occasion that of Prof. John Wilson, of Blackwood's Magazine: Were this festival to commemorate the genius of Burns, and it were asked what need is there of such commemoration, since his fame is co-extensive with the literature of our land, and inherent in every soul, I would answer that though admiration of the poet be indeed unbounded as the world, yet we, as compatriots to whom it is more especially dear, rejoice to see that universal sentiment concentrated in the voice of a great assembly of his own people - that we rejoice to meet in thousands to honor him who has delighted each single one of us all at his own hearth. But this commemoration expresses, too, if not a profounder, yet a more tender sentiment; for it is to welcome his sons to the land which their father illustrated - to indulge our national pride in a great name, while, at the same time, we gratify in full breasts the most pious of affections. It was customary, you know, in former times, to crown great poets. No such oblation honored our bard; yet he, too, tasted of human applause - he enjoyed its delights, and he knew the trials that attend it. which, think you, would he have preferred? Such a celebration as this in his lifetime, or fifty years after his death? I cannot doubt that he would have preferred the posthumous, because the finer incense.
