Sarbjit Athwal - Shamed Virgin Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1998, Sarbjit Athwal was called by her husband to attend a family meeting. It looked like just another family gathering. An attractive house in west London, a large dining room, two brothers, their mother, one wife. But the subject they were discussing was anything but ordinary. At the head of the group sat the elderly mother. She stared proudly around, smiling at her children, then raised her hand for silence. 'It's decided then,' the old lady announced. 'We have to get rid of her.' 'Her' was Surjit Athwal, Sarbjit's sister-in-law. Within three weeks of that meeting, Surjit was dead: lured from London to India, drugged, strangled, and her body dumped in the Ravi River, never to be seen again. After the killing, risking her own life, Sarbjit fought secretly for justice for nine long, scared years. Eventually, with immense bravery, she became the first person within a murderer's family ever to go into open court in an honour killing trial as the Prosecution's key witness, and the first to waive her anonymity in such a trial. As a result of her testimony, the trial led to the first successful prosecution of an honour killing without the body ever being found. But her story doesn't end there. Since the trial, her life has been threatened; her own husband arrested after an allegation of intimidation. Shamed is a story of fear and of horror - but also of immense courage, and a woman who risked everything to see that justice was done.

Invention of Nature John Murray Publishers Ltd

Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) changed the way we see the world. An intrepid explorer and visionary scientist, his restless life was packed with adventure and discovery, whether climbing the highest volcanoes in the world, risking his life in the Amazonian rainforest or racing through anthrax-infested Siberia. He discovered the magnetic equator, was the first to measure the Humboldt Current (which was then named after him), and predicted human-induced climate change as early as 1800. He wove together hard scientific data and measurements with art, history, poetry and politics. Humboldt saw nature as a global force and became the most interdisciplinary of all scientists. He was a man of contradictions who inspired princes and revolutionaries alike - and generations of thinkers and writers from Darwin to Henry David Thoreau and Jules Verne. He predated James Lovelock's Gaia theory by 150 years when he described Earth as a living organism, but his evocative descriptions of nature were loved (and copied) by the Romantic poets. The irony is that Humboldt's views have become so self-evident that we have largely forgotten the man behind them. But there exists a direct line of connection through his ideas, and through the many people whom he inspired. THE INVENTION OF NATURE traces these invisible threads that connect us to this extraordinary man. Humboldt was described by his contemporaries as the most famous man in the world after Napoleon, yet he is almost forgotten today. Andrea Wulf vividly brings this last polymath back to life, taking us on a fantastic voyage in his footsteps and those of his ideas as they go on to revolutionise science, conservation and preservation, nature writing, politics, art and the theory of evolution. In THE INVENTION OF NATURE, she reintroduces us to an unforgettable man and lost hero of science and shows us why understanding his vision of the world has become more necessary today than ever before.

After months of isolation in the Sudanese desert, Lieutenant Adam Burch learns that his parents have gone missing. Risking execution, he deserts his post and journeys back home to a shocking new American landscape. There he uncovers the chilling truth behind an imperialistic agenda responsible for casually extinguishing the lives of millions through starvation, enforced slavery and nuclear reprisal. Despite what Adam learns, it may already be too late, to rescue the world from its ...darkest days.

Changers Book One: Drew opens on the eve of Ethan Miller's freshman year of high school in a brand-new town. He's finally sporting a haircut he doesn't hate, has grown two inches since middle school, and can't wait to try out for the soccer team. At last, everything is looking up in life. Until the next morning. When Ethan awakens as a girl. Ethan is a Changer, a little-known, ancient race of humans who live out each of their four years of high school as a different person. After graduation, Changers choose which version of themselves they will be forever - and no, they cannot go back to who they were before the changes began. Ethan must now live as Drew Bohner - a petite blonde with an unfortunate last name - and navigate the treacherous waters of freshman year while also following the rules: Never tell anyone what you are. Never disobey the Changers Council. And never, ever fall in love with another Changer. Oh, and Drew also has to battle a creepy underground syndicate called 'Abiders' (as well as the sadistic school queen bee, Chloe). And she can't even confide in her best friend Audrey, who can never know the real her, without risking both of their lives. Fans of the books of John Green, the Joss Whedonverse - and empathy between humans - will find much to love in this first of a four-part series that tracks the journey of an average suburban boy who becomes an incredible young woman...who becomes a reluctant hero...who becomes the person she was meant to be. Because, while changing the world can kinda suck, it sure beats never knowing who you really are.

From the bestselling author of Ghostman. I work alone. I may be the best thief in the world but no one will ever know a single thing about me. Well, almost no one. A lifetime ago I had a mentor, Angela. She taught me how to be a criminal, how to run a heist. And now, six years after she vanished and left me high and dry on a job in Kuala Lumpur, she's sent me an SOS. Or at least I think it's her. If it is, then I've got to go. I owe her that much. So soon I'll be on a plane to Macau, either to see a friend or walk into a trap. Or both. But that's the way I like it. Sometimes the only thing that makes me happy is risking my life. Time to go.
