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.

The Experience of Fathering A Preterm Infant LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Preterm births (PTB) are the largest obstetrical problem in America. An infant s preterm birth presents an extraordinary life situation for fathers, whose voices are rarely heard. A hermeneutic phenomenological approach was used to explore the experience of fathering preterm infants from fathers perspectives. A purposive sample of five fathers of infants born between 24 and 36 weeks gestation participated in three semi-structured interviews over four-months beginning within six months of the birth. Each father took photographs expressing their experience of fathering. Van Manen s phenomenological approach guided the analysis of interview transcripts and photos and Madison s nine principles were used to ensure rigor. Guided by van Manen s four existentials, the 10 emergent themes included anticipating a future of possibilities, worry, waiting and not knowing, running out of time, letting others in my world, living the space of fathering at home and work, fatherhood unleashed/ becoming closer, and man in the mirror. Findings will help inform nursing education, policy, and innovative practices of caring for fathers in the community and hospital settings.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Run or Die by Kilian Jornet - The inspirational memoir of "the most dominating endurance athlete of his generation." (The New York Times). Kilian Jornet has conquered some of the toughest physical tests on the planet. He has run up and down Mt. Kilimanjaro faster than any other human being, and struck down world records in every challenge that has been proposed - all before the age of 25. Dominating ultra marathons and races at altitude, he has redefined what is possible in running, astonishing competitors with his near-superhuman fitness and ability. In Run or Die Kilian shares his passion, inviting readers into a fascinating world rich with the beauty of rugged trails and mountain vistas, the pulse-pounding drama of racing, and an intense love for sport and the landscapes that surround him. In turns inspiring, insightful, candid, and deeply personal, this is a book written from the heart of the world's greatest endurance runner, for whom life presents one simple choice: Run. Or die. This is the next must-have read for those who enjoyed the endurance books Born to Run by Christopher McDougall and Ultramarathon Man by Dean Karnazes. "Trail running's first true breakout star". (Runner's World). Kilian Jornet is a world champion ultra-runner, climber and ski mountaineer (a combination of skiing and mountaineering). He was raised in the mountains of Eastern Spain and at 18 months old would hike four to five hours at a time. In 2013 Jornet broke the world speed record to ascend and descend the 14,692-foot Matterhorn mountain. Jornet's time was 2 hours and 52 minutes. The push typically takes climbers around 12 hours. Kilian Jornet was voted the presitigious 'Adventurer of the Year 2014' award by National Geographic magazine, in honour of his latest project to break speed records up and down the world's 7 tallest mountains. The 4-year-project finishes with a running attempt up Everest in 2016.

American Turnaround WARNER INTERNATIONAL

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A down-to-earth, no-nonsense Texas native with a distinctive Texas twang in his voice, Whitacre is that rare CEO with great charisma and extraordinary management instincts. Before being pulled out of retirement to run GM by President Obama, Ed Whitacre had spent his entire corporate career in the telecom business, where he ultimately ended up running AT&T. AMERICAN TURNAROUND is a business memoir of Whitacre's time running both GM and AT&T, complete with his management insights and prescriptive takeaways. Written in a straightforward style by his co-author Leslie Cauley (a Pulitzer prize nominee from the Wall Street Journal), the book is also meant to have a strong undercurrent of American patriotism, as Whitacre feels that too much has been emphasized in the media that American workers are no longer capable of manufacturing anything of substance anymore. Whitacre's "roll up your sleeves and let's get to work" attitude has won the admiration and respect of executives and employees throughout his days at GM and at AT&T.

See No Evil ARROW

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

See No Evil is the astonishing and controversial memoir from one of the CIA's top field officers of the past quarter century. Robert Baer recounts his career as a ground soldier in the CIA's war on terrorism, running agents in the back alleys of the Middle East, with blistering honesty. He paints a chilling picture of how terrorism works on the inside and provides compelling evidence about how Washington sabotaged the CIA's efforts to root out the world's deadliest terrorists. See No Evil is an unprecedented examination of the roots of modern terrorism and the CIA's failure to acknowledge and neutralise the growing fundamentalist threat, and an engrossing memoir of Baer's education as an intelligence operative. See No Evil includes revelations about the strategic alliance Osama bin Laden forged with Iran in 1996 to mastermind terrorist attacks on the United States and elsewhere, about the planned coup d'etat against Saddam Hussein and how it was aborted by the National Security Council, and about the CIA's disastrous decision in 1991 to shut down its operations in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, ignoring the fundamentalists working in those countries. An extraordinary testimony that has become even more vital and damning since the events of 9/11 and the subsequent War on Iraq.

Where Have All the Bullets Gone? Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Where Have All the Bullets Gone?" is volume five of Spike Milligan's outrageous, hilarious, legendary War Memoirs. 'Back to those haunting days in Italy in 1944, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, with lava running in great red rivulets down the slope towards us, and Jock taking a drag on his cigarette and saying, "I think we've got grounds for a rent rebate."' The fifth volume of Spike Milligan's unsurpassed account of life as a Bombardier in World War Two sees our hero dispatched from the front line to psychiatric hospital and from there to a rehabilitation camp. Considered loony (and 'unfit to be killed in combat by either side'), he becomes embroiled in his own private battle with melancholy. But it is music, wit and a little help from his friends - including one Gunner Harry Secombe - that help carry him through to his first stage appearances..."Desperately funny, vivid, vulgar". ("Sunday Times"). "Milligan is the Great God to all of us". (John Cleese). "The Godfather of Alternative Comedy". (Eddie Izzard). "That absolutely glorious way of looking at things differently. A great man". (Stephen Fry). Spike Milligan was one of the greatest and most influential comedians of the twentieth century. Born in India in 1918, he served in the Royal Artillery during WWII in North Africa and Italy. At the end of the war, he forged a career as a jazz musician, sketch-show writer and performer, before joining forces with Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe to form the legendary "Goon Show". Until his death in 2002, he had success as on stage and screen and as the author of over eighty books of fiction, memoir, poetry, plays, cartoons and children's stories.

'At the turn from our bedroom into the hallway, there is an old full-length mirror in a wooden frame ...This reflected version of myself, shaking, rumpled, pinched and slightly stooped, would be alarming were it not for the self-satisfied expression pasted across my face. I would ask the obvious question, "What are you smiling about?" but I already know the answer: "It just gets better from here."' Struck with Parkinson's - a debilitating, degenerative disease - at the height of his fame, Michael J. Fox has taken what some might consider cause for depression and turned it into a beacon of hope for millions. In Always Looking Up, Michael's Sunday Times bestselling memoir, he writes with warmth, humour and incredible honesty about the journey he has undertaken since he came to terms with his condition.

You Couldn't Make it Up! Matador

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Believing life is not a rehearsal, and with the world at his feet, Mike took it full on! How many people can say they've survived a tarantula bite, been deported from Iran, explored the wilderness in Antarctica, and served on a Foreign Office Commission? Mike Freedman can. You Couldn't Make It Up! is his memoir, spanning 70 years, that details his extraordinary experiences. Having been on a plane halfway across the Atlantic during 9/11, as well as exploring the Malaysian jungle and Namibian desert and running marathons, Mike tells of how he is lucky to have had such an array of exciting and scary experiences. Despite having been expelled from school, Mike has received degrees from University College London, Oxford, University of the Arts, London, and Saskatchewan in Canada. His life is littered with unusual events and unbelievable escapes that show just how you can make your own luck. An amusing and fast read, written in a chatty and friendly style, You Couldn't Make It Up! will appeal to anyone of an adventurous nature, while serving as an inspiration to the younger generation and providing a reminder to the older of a golden time. "I wanted to leave my story as a legacy to my children and grandchildren," says Mike, who classes himself as a wilderness adventurer as well as being a husband, father and grandfather. He had a successful international business career and parallel political one. Mike is now an artist.
