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.

German Trade and the War, Commercial and Industrial Conditions, in War Time and the Future Outlook (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from German Trade and the War, Commercial and Industrial Conditions, in War Time and the Future Outlook Sir: There is submitted herewith a report on German trade and the war, by Chauncey Depew Snowv Assistant Chief of the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce, and J. J. Krai, of the research division of the Bureau. This report takes up the question of the foreign trade of Germany where " German Foreign-Trade Organization," Miscellaneous Series No. 57, issued in 1917, left off. It discusses industrial and commercial conditions in Germany since the outbreak of the war, covering the manufacturing industries, the supplies of raw materials, the development of substitute materials, labor, combination and syndication of industry, and present markets. It contains some information concerning transportation conditions, the railroads, rivers and canals, and ocean shipping. This report also touches briefly on some of the broader subjects of Germany's commercial aims in going to war, and aspirations and preparations for the period after the war. Whereas in the previous report, "German Foreign-Trade Organization," detailed statistical and other information was given concerning the export trade, in the present report special attention is devoted to the subject of raw materials and the import trade. There are many topics here touched on which suggest the possibilities of future detailed treatment and very extensive research; for example, such topics as the effect of the war on the merchant shipping of Germany, and the extent of the loss to the German export trade by liquidation of German concerns in foreign countries. The facilities for such research and detailed treatment are not now available. It is realized that some of the topics discussed are treated m a fragmentary fashion, and that the discussion of some topics, such as plans and preparations for the future, are little more than a reproduction of the published views of some of the German economists and other men in public life. No apology is needed for the presentation of the material in its present form. Mr. Snow and Mr. Krai have followed such important newspapers, periodicals, and books published in Germany and all the other European countries as have been available in the Department.

War with Disease (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from War With Disease The first three editions of this book were sold almost exclusively to the army at home and abroad, while the fourth was bought largely by the public. Recently, a demand coming from officers and men of the Territorial Army enables me to bring out a fifth edition of "War with Disease." The book has now been sold in every country where the British flag flies, the frequent orders from India being specially gratifying. I have to thank the many commanding officers who have paid me the compliment of having parts of the lectures read out regularly to their men. Since I first delivered the lectures contained in this little book, I have had the honour of repeating them to the officers of the Staff College in Camberley. For this audience I went a little more deeply into the scientific reasons for the suggestions I made. Were I to redeliver the lectures, I could in many cases change recommendations into reports of the actual results of the effects produced by carrying out the plan of campaign recommended in "War with Disease." These results are in all respects most gratifying. Indeed, in more than one case commanding officers have been able to inform me that the result of acting upon the principles laid down has been a "clean bill of health for the regiment," and statistics prove how greatly the health of the Army, as a whole, has improved within the past two years. I do not attempt to take any credit for this, but as one who has taken some part in directing the fight against disease, the fact that the fight is a winning one gives me very great pleasure. The lectures are here reproduced exactly as they were delivered at the Staff College, in October, 1906, without any alterations or additions.

Excerpt from Virginia Militia in the Revolutionary War: McAllister's Data This book does not profess to be a history of the Virginia Militia in the Revolution. No claim is made that it gives a complete list of the companies from any of the counties. Its purpose is to make available the material, some of which I have been gathering from time to time for a number of years. It is believed, however, that it is the first attempt to compile a considerable quantity of data on the subject. In a statement issued by the Secretary of War in 1832, he says that there are in his department no rolls of the State tr00ps except those of Virginia, and no rolls of the militia except those of New Hampshire. In regard to the Militia, very little is known and that little is extremely fragmentary. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from 115th Infantry, U. S. An;, In the World War Many volumes will be written discussing the causes, describing the decisive battles and delineating the character and ability of the leading generals. The general progress of the great struggle will be told in detail. The location of army corps will be indicated, and the way they fought. _divisions will be followed with some interest probably, but little notice will be given to the life and activities of individual regiments, for in this gigantic conżict, where millions are struggling, a regiment is a very insignificant factor. The historian, as -he weighs the forces that determined the course of the war and the final result, will attach little importance to the work of the l l5th Infantry. But mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, wives, sweethearts and children will be more interested in the regiment son or brother or father was in, than in the war itself. So, for the sake of those loved ones who stayed at home, writing letters, sending candy, cakes and tobacco, knitting sweaters and socks, saying prayers - for the sake of those who kept the Home Fires Burning - for the sake of keeping fond memories fresh and noble deeds alive, we tell the story of the l l5th Infantry.'

Sketches from the Spanish-American War in the Philippine Islands (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Sketches From the Spanish-American War in the Philippine Islands We get up this second edition of our little pamphlet somewhat altered, by request of those, who did not succeed in getting a copy of the first, owing to the limited number printed. So much has already been written oft he naval battle on May 1st, that any more in that direction must needs be going over previously well beaten ground. Pretty much everybody has by this time of course read all the particulars of the American fleet's splendid achievements on that memorable day, but as a good many wishes to keep this little book as a souvenir, and as it would be incomplete without at least a brief description of the opening and chief feature of the Spanish-American war in the Philippines, we reprint a condensed account of the battle and the movements leading up to it. In describing the miscellaneous events we have had to resort almost exclusively to our own observations, as news from the various ships as well as from the camps ashore, has been rather difficult to obtain. There is one statement of ours, which doubtless will cause comment: - the fact that we give the number of dead on the Reina Christina as 364, while Admiral Dewey's report only shows 150, In alluding to the official report of the Spanish authorities, the local press makes use of the larger figure, and we have taken the liberty to do the same, although it is more than probable that a good many of the missing men were not killed in the battle. A large number of the Christina's crew were native Filipinos, impressed in the service, and no doubt a good many of them availed themselves of the opportunity to desert, when the crash came.

Excerpt from My Experience in the World War Wishing to serve my country and humanity, I went to the city of Newark on the 26th day of July, 1917, walked up to Market Street and to an Army Recruiting Station, near the Pennsylvania R. R. Station and said to the recruiting officer that I wanted to enlist. The officer answered that he could help me to do that little thing. I was told to undress to be examined by the doctor.

Bug's-Eye View of the War (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from A Bug's-Eye View of the War The writer of this rather botchy yarn had a grandfather who served in the Civil War. It was the custom of the old gentleman to relate, with some show of pride, incidents of that conflict in which he usually figured as a principal. So breathless was his recital of heroism that it nearly landed him in Congress at one time, although certain of his political opponents circulated a report at the time of his candidacy that grandpa broke his shin on the way to the concentration camp and never shouldered anything more murderous than a borrowed umbrella. While these base insinuations never prevailed against the old boy's sterling reputation in the community, how idle would they have been had he kept a diary and had it printed and passed around! Lest it be forgotten, here is your record, set up in imperishable type - alms for oblivion. Changing points of view and lack of contemporaneous records have made it imperfect in many ways; but Memory has been a friend. I aim to suggest, rather than narrate, and perhaps the incidents that have been omitted will be recalled by their associations in these pages. It is called a bug's-eye view of the war because in reality that was our viewpoint. Food and sleep and work were our chief concerns, Mr. Wilson's speeches to the contrary, notwithstanding. If at any time we were crusaders, our objective was a ration dump; and nearly all of us felt that our obligations to Old Man La Fayette were discharged along with our food on the transport going over. Communiques and the progress of war loans seldom excited our interest, if at all. This is not an indictment of our patriotism, for we decided upon the purposes of the war long before we enlisted. No attempt, therefore, has been made to tell the story of the war. Only when it has been necessary has reference to it been made at all. This is only a simple tale of the smiles and tears and schoolboy scraps the bloomin' war occasioned in a little group of men banded together for its duration. Histories of what the millions did are already on sale, and reference to the war's larger events would be tiresome repetition here.

War Verse (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from War Verse This is by no means the first collection of poems of the great war; and it is certain that it will not be the last. If it has one outstanding characteristic which distinguishes it from other collections, it is that the material for it is not the result of a quest among volumes of verse, and only to a slight degree is it the work of the recognized poets. It owes its origin to the fact that the Editor has been a close reader of the English journals, magazines and reviews since August, 1914, and has been increasingly impressed with the fine quality of the war verse contributed by writers unknown or little known. The spirit rather than the form of this verse carries its appeal to the reader. It is not the work of professional verse writers who have seen in the events of the war stirring and timely literary material; but, to a large extent, it is the spontaneous expression of sincere feeling, - the feeling of the soldier in the trenches, waiting for the order to go "over the top" the next morning, and thinking of home, of England, of Oxford, or of the crocuses of Nottingham, or the feeling of the wounded man in the hospital or of the nurse who cares for him. In not a few instances, the poems, when printed, have borne, under the name of the writer, the inscription "Killed in action," which has given the lines the peculiar poignancy of a message from a man who has fought his last fight, and has done it without fear or faltering.

Little Masterpieces of Science (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Little Masterpieces of Science "Peace hath her victories No less renown'd than war." The love of adventure, the expectation of the unexpected, have ever prompted men stout of heart, and ready of resource, to brave the perils of wilderness and sea that they might set their feet where man never trod before. The world owes much to the explorers who have faced hostile savages, stood in jeopardy from the cobra and the lion, the foes as deadly which lurk in the brook which quenches thirst. A traveller like Clarke takes his life in his hands. He breaks a path which leads he knows not whither: it may bring him to a shore whence he has no ship to sail from; it may end in an abyss he cannot bridge. The thickets rend and sting him, poison may colour a tempting grain or berry, frost may deaden his energies and lull him to the sleep that knows no waking. He has but little aid from science: beyond food and medicine he carries little more than a watch, a compass, a rifle, and a cartridge belt. Beyond all instruments and weapons are his skill, agility, gumption, diplomacy. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

It was thought, both here and in England, that Nova Scotia and the circumjacent lands and seas could not be over estimated. But after the separation, New England took but little interest in that part of the world, as it was possessed by bitter political enemies, exiled there because they had espoused and adhered to the cause of the British government. Consequently the intercourse between the sections at once nearly ceased. Hence our writers make small account of the history of the Provinces after their separation.

Recollections of the Irish War (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Recollections of the Irish War Even in Ireland, folk in thinking of the war that ended in the establishment by International Treaty of the Free State go back no further than the Easier Rising of 1916. Little wonder that this way of thought should prevail outside Ireland. Life, however, does not work in this fashion. History, which is the record of Life, reveals a far-reaching series of connected causes and effects, difficult to disconnect into the trim order that the unimaginative mind requires. To follow any part of that record, from whatever personal standpoint it be seen, with understanding and interest, it is necessary, therefore, briefly to note the framework into which it is set. The Easter Rising of 1916 reaches back through two personalities to older events. Noble minds planned that Rising as an heroic gesture of sacrifice. Other minds, not less noble, held aloof because they saw no justification for it on military or political grounds. But of them all two (one on each side) connected that event, and the causes that immediately produced it, with earlier history. These two therefore are specially significant. The first of them is Arthur Griffith. He held aloof; but he took the Rising back to the fall of Parnell. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Wilderness and the War Path The life of the American Indian is not so destitute of the interest created by variety of incident, as might be supposed by a casual observation of the habits of this singular race. It is true that the simple structure of their communities, and the sameness of their occupations, limit the Savage within a narrow sphere of thought and action. Without commerce, agriculture, learning, or the arts, and confined to the employments of war and hunting, the general tenour of his life must be monotonous. His journies through the unpeopled wilderness, furnish him with no information as to the modes of existence of other nations, nor any subjects for reflection, but those which nature supplies, and with which he has been familiar from childhood. Beyond his own tribe, his intercourse extends only to savages as ignorant as himself, and to traders but little elevated above his own moral standard. But there are, even in savage life, seasons of great excitement, and instances often occur in which individuals are drawn into adventures of the most singular and perilous description.
