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.

Natural History of Fossils, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from A Natural History of Fossils, Vol. 1 In the Year 1752, I published proposals for printing by subscription, A Natural History of Fossils, digested from materials which I had compiled, during a series of years, wherein I had been closely engaged in these studies. As the prosecution of the work was necessarily attended with great expence, I was obliged to apply for subscriptions, but on the most moderate advance, as the public already had too much reason to be tired with proposals of this nature. Tho' the assistance I have hitherto received in this manner, is far from supporting the expence, yet, that I might not be wanting to those gentlemen who have favoured me with their subscriptions, I have published so much of the work, as the assistance I have received would enable me to do: the rest is ready for the press, and will be published with speed, proportioned to the generosity of those who think such researches worthy of encouragement. In regard to the work, no pains or expence have been spared to render it as compleat as my abilities would permit: I have endeavoured to reduce this study, hitherto deficient in respect of method, to a regular science, and in the attempt have been careful neither to multiply the species, nor lessen their number, unnecessarily. To each genus besides general observations, definitions or characteristics are adjoined, to which I have scrupulously adhered. I have added to the description of each species, the synonyma of authors, which, to avoid confusion, are placed in the order of time when they flourished. Foreign parts where these substances are principally found, are specified in particular, with the name of the province, principality, or town; a circumstance that has been omitted by former writers, who commonly content themselves with mentioning the country in general, as Italy, Germany, France, &cc. and indeed where it happens that any Fossil abounds throughout a whole country, such a general account is sufficient. I have at present but slightly touched upon the places in this island, famous for the Fossils; because they will be more fully considered in the Lithographia Britannica intended to be subjoined to this work. To the descriptions are added historical facts, critical and other observations, which, 'tis hoped, will not be thought unnecessary, or foreign to the subject. As I have availed myself of the labours and discoveries of preceding writers, so they have been faithfully quoted; and, however I may differ from them in option, I have endeavoured to treat them with a becoming regard.

Utterly Impartial History of Britain BLACK SWAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Many of us were put off history by the dry and dreary way it was taught at school. Back then 'The Origins of the Industrial Revolution' somehow seemed less compelling than the chance to test the bold claim on Timothy Johnson's 'Shatterproof' ruler. But here at last is a chance to have a good laugh and learn all that stuff you feel you really ought to know by now...In this "Horrible History for Grown Ups" you can read how Anglo-Saxon liberals struggled to be positive about immigration; 'Look I think we have to try and respect the religious customs of our new Viking friends - oi, he's nicked my bloody ox!' Discover how England's peculiar class system was established by some snobby French nobles whose posh descendents still have wine cellars and second homes in the Dordogne today.And explore the complex socio-economic reasons why Britain's kings were the first in Europe to be brought to heel; (because the Stuarts were such a useless bunch of untalented, incompetent, arrogant, upper-class thickoes that Parliament didn't have much choice.) A book about then that is also incisive and illuminating about now, "2000 Years of Upper Class Idiots in Charge", is a hilarious, informative and cantankerous journey through Britain' fascinating and bizarre history. As entertaining as a witch burning, and a lot more laughs.

Letter from America Penguin

Powieści i opowiadania

When Alistair Cooke retired in March 2004 and then died a few weeks later, he was acclaimed by many as one of the greatest broadcasters of all time. His Letters from America, which began in 1946 and continued uninterrupted every week until early 2004, kept the world in touch with what was happening in Cooke's wry, liberal and humane style. This selection, made largely by Cooke himself and supplemented by his literary executor, gives us the very best of these legendary broadcasts. Over half have never appeared in print before. It is a remarkable portrait of a continent - and a man. Fred Astaire 26 June 1987 Movie stars don't make it. Nor statesmen. Not Prime Ministers, or dictators unless they die in office. Not even a world-famous rock star, unless he's assassinated. But last Monday, none of the three national television networks hesitated about the story that would lead the evening news. On millions of little screens in this country and I don't doubt in many other countries around the world, the first shots were of an imp, a graceful wraith, a firefly in impeccable white tie and tails. And for much longer than the lead story usually runs, for a full five minutes on NBC, we were given a loving retrospective of the dead man, ending with the firm declaration by Nureyev that 'He was not just the best ballroom dancer, or tap dancer, he was simply the greatest, most imaginative, dancer of our time.' And the newsmen were right to remind us of the immortal comment of the Hollywood mogul, who, with the no-nonsense directness of an expert, reported on Fred Astaire's first film test: 'Has enormous ears, can't act, can't sing, dances a little.' That Hollywood mogul, long gone, spent his life ducking round corners, to avoid being identified as the oaf who looked in the sky and never saw the brightest star. However, that expert opinion was, as the lawyers say, controlling at the time and in Astaire's first movies, there was no thought of allowing him to act or sing. But not for long. And thanks to the invention of television, and the need to fill vast stretches of the afternoon and night with old movies, it has been possible for my daughter, for instance, to claim Fred Astaire as her favourite film star from the evidence of all the movies he made fifteen, ten, five, three years before she was born. When I got the news on Monday evening here, and realized with immediate professional satisfaction that the BBC had smartly on hand a musical obituary tribute to him I put together eight years ago, I couldn't help recalling the casual, comic way this and similar radio obituaries came about. I was in London at the end of 1979, and Richard Rodgers - one of the two or three greatest of American songwriters - had just died, I believe on New Year's Eve or the night before. Britons, by then, were getting accustomed, without pain, to making what used to be a two-day Christmas holiday into a ten-day much-needed rest. For all laborious research purposes, the BBC was shut up. And there was no retrospective programme on the life and music of Richard Rodgers in the BBC's archives. Of course, in a gramophone library that looks like an annex to the Pentagon, there were hundreds, perhaps thousands, of recordings of his songs. The SOS went out to a writer, a producer, and - I presume - a man who had the key to the gramophone library. The silent place was unlocked, and the three of them laboured through the day to put together an hour's tribute to Richard Rodgers. It was done. It was competent enough, but rushed to an impossible deadline. This hasty improvisation happened just when my own music producer and I, who had enjoyed working together for six years or so on American popular music, were wondering what we could offer next. We'd done a sketch history of jazz, through individuals. We'd gone through all the popular music of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, and were stumped for a new series, at which point I asked if we mightn't go and talk to the head of the channel, network or whatever. We went in, and the genial boss asked me what we had in mind. 'A morgue,' I said. A what? 'Where', I asked, 'is your morgue?' He was not familiar with the word, a newspaper term. 'Well,' I said, 'all newspapers have them.' 'How d'you mean?' 'If, I explained, 'Mrs Thatcher died tonight and you woke up and read a two-sentence obituary, you'd be rightly outraged. But if you saw a two-page obituary, you'd take it for granted. When d'you suppose it was written?' 'That's right,' he said thoughtfully. What I was proposing was a morgue of the Americans eminent in popular music and jazz, so they'd not get caught short again. A splendid idea, the man said; pick your stars. We made a list and were commissioned to return to America and finish all of them. Naturally, we looked at a calendar, and birthdates of Hoagy Carmichael, Earl Hines, Harold Arlen, Ethel Merman, Stephane Grappelli, Ella Fitzgerald. But then, in a spasm of panic, we thought of two giants - if the word can be used about two comparative midgets: Irving Berlin and Fred Astaire. Berlin was then 91. And Fred Astaire was just crowding 80. The boss man, to whom the idea of a morgue had been, only a few minutes before, quaint if not morbid, wondered what we were waiting for. Better get busy, at once, on Berlin and then on Astaire. I remember doing the Astaire obit, then and there, while I was still in London. Meanwhile, we'd simply pray every night that the Lord would keep Irving Berlin breathing till I could get home and get busy. I remember being picked up in a car by a charming young girl to get to the BBC and record my Astaire narration - there wasn't a moment to lose. She asked me, in the car, what the script was that I was clutching. 'It's an obituary', I said, 'of Fred Astaire.' 'Fred Astaire,' she shrieked, 'dead?' and almost swerved into a bus. 'Of course, he's not dead,' I said, 'but he's going to be one day.' She, too, was new to the institution of a morgue. I recalled that when I was a correspondent for a British paper in the United States, and when for example. Dean Acheson was appointed Secretary of State, the first cable I had from my editor said, 'Welcome Acheson obituary soonest.' How ghoulish, she said. I imagine that to two generations at least, it's assumed that Fred Astaire, this slim, pop-eyed newcomer to Hollywood who couldn't act, couldn't sing, danced a little, only made a fool of the mogul through the movies he made, with Ginger Rogers, in the mid- and late 1930s. But long before then, from the mid-1920s on, he was already an incomparable star - as a dancer - to theatre audiences both in New York and in London. Perhaps more in London than anywhere, certainly in the 1920s, with the early Gershwin hits, Funny Face and Lady Be Good, and lastly, in 1933, in Cole Porter's Gay Divorce (which was the title of the theatre show; Hollywood would not then allow so shocking a title and called the movie version, The Gay Divorcee). Of all the thousands of words that have been written this week, and will be written, there is a passage I went back to on Tuesday night which, I think, as well as anything I know, sums up Astaire's overall appeal - the appeal that takes in but transcends one's admiration for his dancing and for his inimitably intimate singing style. This was written in November 1933, by a theatre critic who had so little feel for dancing that he marvelled why London should go on about 'Mr Astaire's doing well enough what the Tiller Girls at Blackpool do superbly'. The critic, the writer, was James Agate, the irascible, dogmatic, opinionated but brilliant journalist, and I believe the best critic of acting we have had this century. He is writing his review of Gay Divorce, after declaring yet again his contempt for musical comedy as an entertainment for idiots, deploring the play's plot and the acting and hoping 'Micawberishly, for something to turn up'. 'Presently,' he wrote, 'Mr Fred Astaire obliged, and there is really no more to be said.' Except

The Dark Pool: Black Gold, High Finance, and Love in the Scottish Highlands is set mainly in the remote Highlands of Scotland. In 1997, a body surfaces in Blairhyle's notorious dark pool, supposedly a peat bog, but shady businessman Dalhousie learns its secret. Historian Eks Jones, a young widow, is writing a book on the Highland Clearances, the forced depopulation of the Scottish Highlands. Learning that a handful of people had survived the 1793 Blairhyle Clearance and eventually founded the tiny village of Crannog, she goes to live there and meets Mikel, the love of her life. Their wedding plans are on hold because history threatens to repeat itself. Crannog is threatened with demolition to make way for a pipeline. Dalhousie has announced a mega oil strike in Blairhyle and conned the government into backing him. However, the head of MI5 has investigated Dalhousie and set up a sting operation to entrap him. Only five people know about the sting, and meanwhile Eks joins Crannog's Action Group to fight the government and save the village. Born and educated in Scotland, Liz Cochrane became head teacher of a remote school in the Highlands. Writing about life and blizzards in the Highlands, she is drawing on her own experience. She took early retirement, moved to the south of Spain, and studied Spanish language, art, history, and culture. She now lectures on art history in two languages. She says, "I think of myself as a Scottish Spaniard. Scottish comes first. I care deeply for my native land, and I think that comes out in The Dark Pool."

"If my library of Western America was limited to a single book, I think it would have to be this wonderful anthology. Dee Brown has been our master." (Tony Hillerman)"The stories of such well-known figures as Lewis and Clark, Jim Bridger, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid as well as other, more obscure characters are told as if Brown himself had lived closely with each. Supplemented by period photographs and illustrations, the anthology reads like fiction but educates as well.... the best collection of his essays, showcasing his empathetic treatment of his subjects and his careful research, factors that have earned him high honors."

The enormously successful book that established his reputation, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (1971), forever changed our view of the Indian.The 25 works in this collection span 100 years of history. Brown includes pieces on noted figures such as Lewis and Clark and Geronimo, stories of the Pony Express riders, longhorn ranchers and cowboys, and women who were brought to the West to marry miners and ranchers.

Supplemented by period photographs and illustrations, the anthology reads like fiction but educates as well.... the best collection of his essays, showcasing his empathetic treatment of his subjects and his careful research, factors that have earned him high honors." (Publishers Weekly)Dee Brown, our foremost popular historian of the American West, has been exploring its "true history" for more than 50 years in some 30 books and dozens of historical articles. Known for his forceful and well-documented narratives, Dee Brown changed the way we look at the West. Without a political or ideological axe to grind, he has stripped away familiar stereotypes and romanticized images, he has always shown us the Old West as it really was. The enormously successful book that established his reputation, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (1971), forever changed our view of the Indian.The 25 works in this collection span 100 years of history. Brown includes pieces on noted figures such as Lewis and Clark and Geronimo, stories of the Pony Express riders, longhorn ranchers and cowboys, and women who were brought to the West to marry miners and ranchers. He offers accounts of the Trail of Tears, the Santa Fe Trail, western settlement, the Plains Indians, war and peace between whites and Indians, and an assortment of intrigues, crimes, and scandals. Containing some of Brown's best work, this book will captivate readers with an interest in a perennially fascinating chapter of our history.

The images of Native Americans by JD Challenger are among the most popular paintings and prints being collected today. Spirit Walker, JD Challenger and His Art features more than one hundred paintings made during the past decade and brought together here for the first time. The book includes extensive commentary by E. Dan Klepper, who has collaborated with Challenger for many years. The text tells the story of the painter and his work and offers insights into its creation. Flint Carney, Tui-Bi-Tsi (Handsome Heart) of the Comanche Nation of Oklahoma, says this about Challenger: "Scholars of American History are now contemplating the ways in which Indian culture influenced the development of a national character that is uniquely American. JD's work captures that connection. His uncanny mixture of symbols from two worlds presses the viewer to look for the messages that might be found there. It's as if he is saying, "I don't necessarily want you to think what I think. I just want you to think." "JD understands as well the phenomenon of the Ghost Dance experience and the environment in which it developed. There was so much despair for Indian people, and they were looking for hope. There was so much anger, and they were looking for hope. There was so much anger, and they were looking for love. Perhaps JD's work serves as a bridge that links the past with the present, and Indian America with non-Indian. Or perhaps its value simply lies in the artist's extraordinary talent. I do not know. What I do know is that JD is, and always will be, my brother."
