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.

Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace Simon & Schuster

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

When author Jeff Hobbs arrived at Yale University, he became fast friends with the man who would be his college roommate for four years, Robert Peace. Robert's life was rough from the beginning in the crime-ridden streets of Newark in the 1980s, with his father in jail and his mother earning less than $15,000 a year. But Robert was a brilliant student, and it was supposed to get easier when he was accepted to Yale, where he studied molecular biochemistry and biophysics. But it didn't get easier. Robert carried with him the difficult dual nature of his existence, "fronting" in Yale, and at home. Through an honest rendering of Robert's relationships-with his struggling mother, with his incarcerated father, with his teachers and friends and fellow drug dealers-The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace encompasses the most enduring conflicts in America: race, class, drugs, community, imprisonment, education, family, friendship, and love. It's about the collision of two fiercely insular worlds-the ivy-covered campus of Yale University and Newark, New Jersey, and the difficulty of going from one to the other and then back again. It's about poverty, the challenges of single motherhood, and the struggle to find male role models in a community where a man is more likely to go to prison than to college. It's about reaching one's greatest potential and taking responsibility for your family no matter the cost. It's about trying to live a decent life in America. But most all the story is about the tragic life of one singular brilliant young man. His end, a violent one, is heartbreaking and powerful and unforgettable.

The stories in this collection move from Malaya to America and England, and include some of Maugham's most famous tales; 'Flotsam and Jetsam', the story of an old woman trapped for years in a loveless marriage in the remote rubber plantations; 'The Man with the Scar', and notably the opening story 'The Vessel of Wrath', a tale of the unexpected love that grows between a devout missionary nurse and a drunken reprobate. In this second volume of his collected stories, Maugham illustrates his characteristic wry perception of human foibles and his genius for evoking compelling drama from an acute sense of time and place.

The second in a two volume collection of acclaimed short stories by the author of Empire of the Sun, Crash, Cocaine Nights and Super-Cannes. With eighteen novels over four decades - from The Drowned World in 1962 to his final novel Kingdom Come in 2006 - J.G. Ballard is known as one of Britain's most celebrated and original novelists. However, during his long career he was also a prolific writer of short stories; in fact, many people consider that he is at his best in the short-story format. These highly influential stories have appeared in magazines such as New Worlds, Amazing Stories and Interzone, and in several separate collections, including 'The Terminal Beach', 'The Venus Hunters', 'Vermilion Sands', 'Low-Flying Aircraft' and 'Myths of the Near Future'. Set out in the original order of publication and frequently the point of conception for ideas he further developed in his novels, these stories provide an unprecedented opportunity to see the imagination of one of Britain's greatest writers at work.

The Voice of America is the nation's largest publicly funded broadcasting network, reaching more than 90 million people worldwide in over forty languages. Since it first went on the air as a regional wartime enterprise in February 1942, VOA has undergone a spectacular transformation, and it now employs scores of reporters worldwide and broadcasts around the clock every day of every year, reaching listeners in the four-fifths of the world still denied a completely free press. Alan L. Heil, Jr., former deputy director of VOA, chronicles this remarkable transformation from a fledgling short wave propaganda organ during World War II to a global multimedia giant encompassing radio, the Internet, and 1,500 affiliated radio and television stations across the globe. Using transcripts of radio broadcasts and numerous personal anecdotes, Heil gives the reader a front-row seat to the greatest events of the past sixty years, from the Cold War and the Vietnam conflict to the Watergate and Lewinsky scandals, from Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon in 1969 to ethnic strife in the Balkans and Rwanda in the mid-1990s, and from the outbreak of HIV/AIDS in the 1980s to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Yet Heil also relates the story of a perennially underfunded organization struggling against the political pressures, congressional investigations, massive reorganizations, and leadership purges that have attempted to shape-and, in some instances, control-VOA programming. Reporting first hand, high-quality news is a monumental task for any network, but the Voice faces obstacles unique to an organization that stands, as former director John Chancellor once observed, at "the crossroads of journalism and diplomacy." It is for this reason that many people still perceive VOA as an instrument of American propaganda. However, as a thirty-six-year veteran of VOA and its numerous policy wars, Heil believes that the Voice has always sought to deliver accurate, objective, and comprehensive news of the highest journalistic standard, news that reflects America's diversity and dynamism, and that presents not only U.S. policies but also critical debate about those policies. This in-depth history of VOA from its founding until its sixtieth anniversary is a vivid portrait of the people who made it great, depicting a news network that has overcome enormous challenges to steadfastly and faithfully report the most important news stories of our time.

"This is a major compilation of Asian American authors, some native-born, others immigrants, refugees, or expatriates. While some of the writers are well known (e.g., Ved Mehta, Meena Alexander), most are emerging voices. The volume is divided into two parts: poetry and fiction. Poets are represented by one or two poems; short story writers by just one piece. Each author contributed a "statement," whether biographical, literary, or philosophical, that appears before his or her work. The editor (professor emeritus, liberal studies and India Studies Program, Sonoman State Univ.) has provided more traditional biographical information at the back of the book. The writers describe a wide range of experience in a great variety of styles." -Debbie Bogenschutz, Cincinnati Technical Coll.

A celebration America's ongoing love affair with the Beatles, four longhaired, oddly dressed chaps who appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evening, February 9, 1964 with half of America watching from their living rooms. Editor Ben Nussbaum traces the beginnings of this first internationally famous boy band, revealing how all four stars aligned to create the sonic sensation that changed the course of music history. Within just two months of the Fab Four's debut on Mr. Sullivan's variety hour, the band had secured all five top spots on BillBoard's Hot 100, and before year's end would sell an astonishing ten million records. Filled with dozens of color and black and white photographs, The Beatles details the rise and fall of the band, the stories behind the men, their relationships, the creation of the songs, the tours, the albums, and the unstoppable spread of Beatlemania around the globe. That the Beatles' legacy continues to fascinate music lovers and pop culture gurus fifty years since their meteoric climb is rendered even more remarkable when one considers that the Beatles would disband just six short years after they sang their first "yeah yeah yeah" on American television. In The Beatles, Nussbaum maps out the band's rise to fame in 1964 ("The Toppermost of the Poppermost" and "The Beginning") as well as three summers of grueling tours --sixty-six tours from 1964 to 1966 ("Twist & Shout"). The song-writing partnership between John Lennon and Paul McCartney, considered by many to be the most successful in history, is examined in "Come Together," revealing how the pair worked together and how their styles were vastly different yet complemented each other's, for a time. The chapter "We Can't Work It Out" discusses the inevitable demise of the Fab Four and how the men grew apart musically and personally due to the high pressures of becoming instant celebrities. In "Breaching the Iron Curtain," the Soviet Union's banning and bashing of the band only increased the youth of the U.S.S.R. to crave the Beatles more fervently and led to their further resentment of their government. Some two decades later, only upon the election of Beatles fan Mikhail Gorbachev did the first Beatles album get released in the U.S.S.R. Underscoring what Nussbaum refers to as "the grandeur of the catalog," Beatles experts Tim Riley and Patrick Foster choose their Top Twenty Beatles tunes, remarkably with only five songs in common. A special section will be welcome by all record collectors, the complete list of the twenty Beatles albums released in North America, including dates and song titles, from Introducing the Beatles, January 1964 to Let it Be, May 1970. The Beatles also takes a brief look at the long solo careers of the four artists after the dissolution of the band, including their musical highlights and lowlights. Other topics discussed in this vividly illustrated volume are the five top contenders for the "Fifth Beatle"( plus ten runners-up, including Little Richard and Yoko Ono), the story of Capitol Records exec, Dave Dexter, who nearly stalled the Beatles' entrance into America, and a section devoted to the band's children ("Here Come the Sons"), discussing the music careers of Julian Lennon, Sean Lennon, Zak Starkey, James McCartney, and Dhani Harrison.

Adventures of Captain Pamphile, and Delaporte's Little Presents (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Adventures of Captain Pamphile, and Delaporte's Little Presents If, following one of the most enterprising of our weekly journals, a French paper were to invite celebrities to summon up their recollections and supply lists of the authors who most charmed their childhood, we may hazard the conjecture that the name of Dumas would be found in many. This may surprise those who only know Dumas as the author of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, and The Black Tulip, and who remember, more or less vaguely, as a matter of literary history, that in 1829 he headed the Romantic Movement with his drama Henri III.; and it is perfectly true that the enormous success of his novels altogether surpassed the reputation he had previously acquired as the writer of entertaining travels and delightful tales for young people. It is not, however, uncommon to find in contemporary literature affectionate tributes paid to some one or more of these tales, and the title that is recorded most frequently is Le Capitaine Pamphile. Dumas wrote the first few chapters of Captain Pamphile as early as 1834, when they appeared in the second volume of the Journal des Enfants, the story being continued in the third and sixth and completed in the seventh volume. In 1835 the same chapters, entitled Jacques I. et Jacques II.: Fragmens Historiques, were reprinted in Dumas Souvenirs dAntony, which, containing stories so remarkable as Blanche de Beaulieu and Le Cocker de Cabriolet, were read by everyone who cared for the productions of the Romantic School. Jacques I. et Jacques II. had a great success, and in 1840, Dumas having completed the book, Dumont published it as Le Capitaine Pamphile, with the following editorial note: - "At last we find ourselves in the fortunate position of being able to bring before the public the interesting series of adventures associated with the name of Captain Pamphile. It has required no less than the time which has elapsed since the first four chapters appeared in the Souvenirs d' Antony (from which we have reprinted them in order to lay before our readers a complete work), that is to say, five years, to procure the necessary documents relating to the characters in this history. These documents were scattered over the four quarters of the globe, but, thanks to the good offices of our consuls, we have succeeded in gathering them together. We feel amply rewarded to-day for our trouble by the conviction that we are presenting to the public a book which is so nearly perfect that only professional critics, with their well-known justice and discernment, are capable of pointing out the slight distance by which the account of The Adventures of Captain Pamphile falls short of absolute perfection." The original text was not, however, exactly reproduced, and for the edification of the curious in such matters we translate the concluding paragraph of Jacques I. et Jacqttes II., which should be read after the mention of the captains purchase of a parrot on page 18 of the present edition. "Gentlemen," said Jadin, breaking off short in his narrative, "as it has proved impossible for me to find out whether the parroquet in question was a true parrot or a cockatoo, and as it was important to clear this point up, I wrote to Captain Pamphile, in order to procure the most accurate information as to the family of the new personage we are about to bring under your notice, but before my letter reached him he, having disposed of his cargo most advantageously, had set out on a second voyage to India. Mme. Pamphile did me the honour to reply to my letter, saying that her husband would be back in September or October next; I am therefore obliged to ask you to wait till then for the continuation of the history of Jacques I. et Jacques II." For general reading in France the edition of 1840 has been
