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.

Igor Mortis - Gout Legend Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A small book stressing the importance of the part Diet does play in causing most arthritic pains. It also deals with certain points gained from experience which ought to be useful both to doctors and patients, for example, how to treat Shingles, early, and have no pain. Though many of the recommendations are perhaps old-fashioned, they are still in use because they have been found to be useful. That after all is the benefit of experience. "What the ignorant and most doctors and nurses do not know is that there is an optimum position for burping. Babies should always be burped on the right shoulder which allows the gas to escape. On the left shoulder the infant will vomit." "Beaver Fever" is well known in the Canadian Rockies. And, again in the Himalayas. Those clear mountain streams are not, as supposed, filled with pure water but are Nature's lavatory. Brittle, Dry Nails: These are always improved by painting them daily or, when possible, with Almond Oil. Stones in the Kidney may be removed usually by eating that White Radish (Saphanus Rativus L.) called Moolie, or DAIKON in Japan. Taken three times a day as a soup, steamed or raw in a salad the stones will come out within a few days. (Depending of course on how big and how long they have been there!) For this purpose it is mentioned also in Nicholas Culpeper's Herbal of 1653. Prevention of Thrombosis: Onions and garlic both contain the volatile oil "Allium". This is fibrinolytic, i.e. keeps the blood thinner and reduces its ability to clot. Hence the recommended Mediterranean Diet with its olive oil and "allium" for vulnerable people with high blood pressure and diabetes and for elderly long-distance travellers. About the Author (note picture cropped to how it is below) Dr. Igor Mortis was dragged to a well-known North of England Medical School and entered for the course in 1941. Escaping in 1943 he served in the Royal Navy for three years and then returned reluctantly to his medical studies and qualified eventually M.B., B.S in 1951. After the first few years learning to be a doctor, in hospitals and then in a good rural practice in East Yorkshire, he returned to the sea as Ship's Surgeon on a voyage to China. There have been further travels to Russia and Nepal, Burma, Thailand and Cambodia, the Americas, North and South and Mexico. To East Africa and Madagascar and the islands in between. To India and Ceylon, Hong Kong and Japan and some of the Pacific Islands. Most experience of medicine was gained in a very busy practice in South-east Asia. Dr. Mortis is now retired, more or less. Cover by 18th Century cartoonist James Gillray.

Excerpt: Contract bridge, usually known simply as bridge, is a trick-taking card game using a standard deck of 52 playing cards played by four players in two competing partnerships with partners sitting opposite each other around a small table. For purposes of scoring and reference, each player is identified by one of the points of the compass and thus North and South play against East and West. The game consists of several hands (or deals) each progressing through four phases: dealing the cards, the auction (also referred to as bidding), playing the hand, and scoring the results. Dealing the cards and scoring the results are procedural activities while the auction and playing the hand are the two actively competitive phases of the game. Dealing: Cards are dealt clockwise, one at a time and face down starting on the dealer's left so that each player receives thirteen cards.Bidding: The bidding starts with the dealer and rotates around the table clockwise with each player making a call, the purpose being to determine which partnership will contract to take more tricks given a particular trump suit or with notrump, referred to as the strain. The partnership which makes the highest final bid is known as the declaring side and is said to have won the contract. The available scoring points for the declaring side are dependent upon both the level and strain of the contract; failure to take at least the contracted for number of tricks results in the defending side receiving points instead and they are said to have 'defeated' the contract. The player on the declaring side who, during the auction, first stated the strain ultimately becoming trumps or notrumps is referred to as the declarer.Playing: The rules of play are similar to other trick-taking games with the additional feature that the hand of declarer's partner is displayed face up on the table after the opening lead has been made by the member of the defending side to the left of declarer; the displayed hand is referred to as

We are pleased to now be able to offer a map covering both sides of the important American/Mexican border areas. One has to always keep in mind that borders are artificial constraints dividing people into categories - Canadians on this side of the fence, Mexicans on that - but the reality of American life is that these political boundaries have to be very porous to enable trade and free movement of people who are closely related to each other. Of course, there are always cross-border frictions, but they are always solvable. This is not 'just' a map showing the border. Of course, it does that, as does our US/Canadian Border map. This map extends well into both the USA and Mexico to show the best of what each country has to offer within a reasonable driving distance. For instance, the US side extends north from San Diego all the way to Las Vegas eastward to Flagstaff, San Antonio, and Houston, showing touristic attractions across this vast area of America. Yes, the map shows the border and its many legal crossing points and no, this map won't help people to enter the USA illegally. The Mexican side shows well-known and attractive venues such as Monterrey, Ciudad Victoria, Torreon, and Chihuahua, as well as the northern portion of Baja California. The famous Copper Canyon railway route from Los Mochis to Cuauhtemoc is shown as is the oldest urban area settled by Europeans in the USA and no, it isn't Jamestown, It's Presidio, Texas! This is a map for exploring, and whether that means in an east-west routing inside one country, or a north-south inter-mingling remains the purview of the user. Mexico is a lovely country just recovering from an extremely troubling drug-inspired war. Travel to Mexico is increasing as peace returns to a troubled land and this map makes it possible to enjoy the best of two countries.

The East Coast of the USA is so densely packed with urban areas and attractions that it is difficult to portray on one map. ITMB has already published Northeast USA at 1:1M scale; this is the adjacent sheet south, as Great Lakes is the Adjacent sheet west. No one seems to have an agreed-upon definition as to what should be included as a Mid-Atlantic State. We included New York State because we wanted NYC to be included and by the shape of the USA had to include parts of Connecticut and Massachusetts unintentionally. The focus of the map is NYC to Raleigh, NC, with New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina making up the map. In terms of cities, Syracuse and Buffalo are in the north, Pittsburgh (interesting city, by the way) in the far west, and Winston-Salem and Norfolk in the south. This is Civil War country and we have done our best to portray memorials important to both sides of that divisive conflict. This is a regional map, not a thematic one, so our focus has been on showing roads appropriate for a 1:1M scale map. This map is also available in digital format for $39.95 (per file) and flat map for $39.95 (per side). Please contact map@itmb.com if you would want to place an order or for more information.

A few months ago, ITMB released its new map of the Northwest Pacific Region (essentially, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho). Now we're introducing a map of the US Southwest States, notably most of California and Nevada, Arizona, most of Utah, and the western third of New Mexico and Colorado. Our regional series is at 1:1M scale. This results in instances where the name of the map may differ from the common perception. In US parlance, the 'Southwest' is often thought to be Arizona and New Mexico, whereas in reality it is southern California, Nevada, and Arizona. If one includes New Mexico, the square sheet of paper has to go so far north that one ends up including Denver. This is our compromise and we'll figure out how to deal with Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Oklahoma a bit further down the line. This double-sided map covers from Reno and Sacramento in the north to Tijuana and Deming NM in the south, and from the Pacific coastline in the west to Gallop NM and Grand Junction CO in the east; printed on durable ITM plastic paper. As with all US regional maps in our growing coverage, this map includes towns, roads, physical features, major parks and natural monuments, touristic attractions, and border crossings. Legend Includes: Roads by classification, Airports, Ferrie routes, States boudaries, border crossing, Time zones, Dams, Harbours, State parks with or without campsites, Campsites, Wayside or Roadside parks, Hospitals, Museums, Tourist information centers, Points of interest, Spanish mission, Waterfalls, World heritage sites, Viewpoints, Lighthouses, Springs, Hot springs, Beaches, Mines and quarries, Nature reserves, Indian areas, Ranger stations, Caves, Universities, Golf courses, Skiing, Snowparks and much more.

Wainwright's Illustrated Walking Guide to the Lake District Fells Frances Lincoln Publishers Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

One name above all others has become associated with walking in the Lake District: Alfred Wainwright, whose seven-volume Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells, first published in 1955-66, has become the definitive guidebook. Wainwright's meticulously hand-drawn maps, diagrams and drawings take walkers up the 214 principal hills and mountains of the Lake District, describing the main routes of ascent from different starting points, as well as lesser-known variants, showing the summit viewpoint panoramas and the ridge routes that can be made to create longer walks. Every page combines words and illustrations to present the routes in a way that is original, visually appealing and easy to follow. This new edition of Wainwright's Walking Guide to the Lake District Fells has been comprehensively revised. Paths, maps, diagrams and route descriptions have been checked and corrected throughout. These revisions have been undertaken by writer and designer Clive Hutchby, author of The Wainwright Companion. The Far Eastern Fells, Book Two of Wainwright's Walking Guide, covers the entire area east of Kirkstone Pass, bordered by Ullswater in the north and Windermere in the south, and includes the ascents of High Street, High Raise and Harter Fell.

Excerpt: The New Town (Czech: ) is a quarter in the city of Prague in the Czech Republic. New Town is the youngest and largest of the five independent (from the Middle Ages until 1784) towns that today comprise the historic center of modern Prague. New Town was founded in 1348 by Charles IV just outside the city walls to the east and south of the Old Town and encompassed an area of 7.5 km˛; about three times the size of the Old Town. The population of Prague in 1378 was well over 40,000, perhaps as much as twice that, making it the 4th most populated city north of the Alps and, by area, the 3rd largest city in Europe. Although New Town can trace its current layout to its construction in the 14th century, only few churches and administrative buildings from this time survive. There are many secular and educational buildings in New Town, but also especially magnificent gothic and baroque churches. These nevertheless are not the main drawing points for tourists. New Town's most famous landmark is Wenceslas Square, which was originally built as a horsemarket and now functions as a center of commerce and tourism. In the 15th century, the Novomestská radnice, or New Town Hall, was the site of the first of the three defenestrations of Prague. Map of Prague from 1903 A street in the New Town.No doubt in connection with his coronation as king under the Holy Roman Empire in 1346, Charles IV decided to found a new city in Prague. After he had achieved the city's independence within the church with the creation of the Archbishopric of Prague in 1344, the foundation of the New Town was intended further to enhance the status of the city which was the new residence of the king. In addition, the housing problem within the city walls of Prague that had already been apparent under Charles IV's father John of Luxembourg was crying out for a solution. Many people, mostly poorer Czechs, had settled in suburbs situated at the base of the city walls, and the banks of the Vltava were almost continuo

Before the spectacular cyber attack on Sony Pictures or costly hacks at Target, Home Depot and Neiman Marcus, Barack Obama made cybersecurity a signature issue of his presidency. "He gets it," Obama's cyber policy advisers liked to say. Constructing a cybersecurity policy, element by element in neat columns, appealed to the president. An "energized" White House would aggressively work the policy levers amid the dysfunctions of Washington. But the hacks kept coming, each one more pernicious than the last, from China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, the Middle East and points unknown. The attacks raised a deeply disturbing question: Was the issue simply beyond the reach of our government, political leaders, business leaders and even technology visionaries to resolve? In Hacked, prominent journalist Charlie Mitchell, one of America's leading cybersecurity reporters, examines the internal power struggles as the Obama administration tried to set a course for the nation, the paralysis on Capitol Hill and industry's desperate effort to stay ahead of both the bad guys and the government, through the lens of the first American cybersecurity presidency.

Southern Flank of NATO, 1951-1959 Lexington Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1951-52, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization established the Southern Flank, a strategy for the defense of the eastern Mediterranean in the Cold War involving Italy, Greece, and Turkey. Among its many aims, the Southern Flank sought to mobilize these countries as allies and integrate them into the Western defense system. Throughout the 1950s, the alliance developed the Southern Flank and in 1959 it was finally stabilized as fractious Greek-Turkish relations were improved by the temporary settlement over Cyprus. The Southern Flank of Nato, 1951-1959: Military Strategy or Political Stabilization examines, among other things, the initial negotiations of 1951-52, the Southern Flank's structure and function and relative value in NATO's overall policy, and the alliance's response to the challenges in the eastern Mediterranean in the early Cold War. It explores not only the military aspects of the Southern Flank, but also the more controversial political aspects: the admission of Greece and Turkey to NATO, the short-lived military cooperation between these states and Yugoslavia during 1953-55 and the effects of the deterioration in Greek-Turkish relations from 1955 due to Cyprus. It also focuses on the part played by other major members of the alliance, principally the United States and Britain, in Southern Flank politics and strategy. Thus, it considers how the U.S. and the U.K. viewed the power balance between the three Southern Flank members and how the Americans sought to influence affairs through financial, military and technical assistance, including the construction of US bases in Italy, Greece and Turkey. The book also assesses the threat posed to the Southern Flank at various points by rising tensions in the Middle East. More generally, the book illuminates the complexities of intra-alliance dynamics in a region full of Cold War tensions. However, in its Middle Eastern/Eastern Mediterranean neighborhood, it was not only the Cold War that provided tensions, since the Arab-Israeli dispute and the tensions of decolonization further complicated the picture. Thus, the study of the Southern Flank is a test case of a Cold War theater which was subjected to additional historical pressures, creating a nexus of problems which the Western Alliance needed to address within its effort to respond to the various challenges of the Cold War.

Largo de Santa Luzia and Other Stories New Generation Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

When Frederick wakes up in his hospital bed after a traumatic car crash there is a disturbing rift in his memory. He is haunted by images of a dark-haired woman with intense eyes and by the knowledge that somehow this woman holds the key to his missing past. Will solving the puzzle offer him peace at last, or will it simply stir up a pain that can never fully heal? An act of thoughtless racism causes ripples across generations; an overheard conversation points the way to new love; a young boy's struggle to support his family offers the perfect solution for lonely soldiers' wives. These are stories of struggle and enlightenment, and of the perseverance of human compassion even in the cruelty of war. They turn an irreverent humour on the dark side of communism and, as in the case of Frederick, they show us the moving and indelible ways in which the past will for ever act upon the present. Arthur Friedberg is Dutch, of Polish descent. Born in the north-east of Poland, in 1941 he was deported to Siberia together with his parents, where he spent five years, returning to Poland in 1946. After a temporary democratisation of the country, at the end of 1956, still a student, Friedberg became involved in the growing movement of famous students' theatres and film clubs. He is a chemist by profession (PhD, MSc, Eng) and worked for sixteen years as a scientist at technical universities across Poland and Sweden, and afterwards for many years in industry in the Netherlands and France. Aside from his professional engagements, he continued his artistic activities throughout the 1960s. He emigrated from Poland in 1969 and is now retired and living in the Netherlands. He is also the author of a novel, A Long-postponed Visit, published in 2005 by Athena Press.
