Truth About Geronimo University of Nebraska Press

"Although Geronimo is the main character in this book, the reader also is given a valuable insight into the lives of the Apache nation as a whole. The descriptive writing style allows the reader to project himself into each event and feel as if 'he were there.'" - "Military Review". "A valuable contribution to our knowledge of the Apaches, [the book] throws light upon many incidents in the career of Geronimo which have hitherto been obscure." - "American Historical Review". "Much more interesting than any fiction ever written about Indians ...a book that no one who is making a study of American Indians can afford to miss." - "Saturday Review". Britton Davis's account of the controversial "Geronimo Campaign" of 1885-86 offers an important firsthand picture of the famous Chiricahua warrior and the men who finally forced his surrender. Davis knew most of the people involved in the campaign and was himself in charge of Indian scouts, some of whom helped hunt down the small band of fugitives Robert M. Utley's foreword reevaluates the account for the modern reader and establishes its historical background.

I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Journalist, presenter, broadcaster, husband, father, vigorous all-rounder: Alan Partridge. Star of action blockbuster Alpha Papa; a man with a fascinating past and an amazing future. Gregarious and popular, yet Alan's never happier than when relaxing in his own five-bedroom, south-built house with three acres of land and access to a private stream. But who is this mysterious enigma? Alan Gordon Partridge is the best - and best-loved - radio presenter in the region. Born into a changing world of rationing, Teddy Boys, apes in space and the launch of ITV, Alan's broadcasting career began as chief DJ of Radio Smile at St. Luke's Hospital in Norwich. After replacing Peter Flint as the presenter of Scout About, he entered the top 8 of BBC sports presenters. But Alan's big break came with his primetime BBC chat show Knowing Me, Knowing You. Sadly, the show battled against poor scheduling, having been put up against News at Ten, then in its heyday. Due to declining ratings, a single catastrophic hitch (the killing of a guest on air) and the dumbing down of network TV, Alan's show was cancelled. Not to be dissuaded, he embraced this opportunity to wind up his production company, leave London and fulfil a lifelong ambition to return to his roots in local radio. Now single, Alan is an intensely private man but he opens up, for the second time, in this candid, entertaining, often deeply emotional - and of course compelling - memoir, written entirely in his own words. (Alan quickly dispelled the idea of using a ghost writer. With a grade B English Language O-Level, he knew he was up to the task.) He speaks touchingly about his tragic Toblerone addiction, and the painful moment when unsold copies of his first autobiography, Bouncing Back, were pulped like 'word porridge'. He reveals all about his relationship with his ex-Ukrainian girlfriend, Sonja, with whom he had sex at least twice a day, and the truth about the thick people who make key decisions at the BBC. A literary tour de force, I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan charts the incredible journey of one of our greatest broadcasters.

"Finally, a book about real people with whom most of us can identify, showing that trading successfully can be done with the right set of tools." Cynthia Bloom, Money Manager "A rich portrait of fourteen ordinary but determined individuals who went on to achieve extraordinary success as full-time equity and commodity traders. Murray analyzes each trader's timing methods and trading systems while Adrienne offers compelling insights into winning market psychology." Nelson Freeburg, Formula Research "In the spirit of Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, Adrienne and Murray combine efforts to create a new genre of investing book. This book surely blazes new trails in its exposition of what makes a trader great." Sunny Harris, Traders' Catalog & Resource Guide "Small amateur investors and traders should be greatly encouraged to learn that it is possible, through the methods and attitudes learned through this insightful book to succeed as a full-time trader. I highly recommend this book." Edward Dobson, President, Traders Press, Inc. Finally: A book showing ordinary people how other ordinary people have become extraordinary traders. It is well known that modeling someone who is successful is the fastest and most effective way to achieve positive results. But most trading books model only the wealthiest traders. How much do they have in common with you? For that reason, this book contains interviews with traders to whom you can relate. They come from all walks of life - starting out as farmers, businessmen, educators, restaurant owners, scientists, house painters, aerospace engineers and salesmen. They had to learn how to carve out a living from trading by relying on their own experiences, innate resources, and character, and now they all make a consistent living from their trading. Combining analytical and psychological modeling studies of each trader and their strategies, this book is designed to help you determine what you need to beat the odds. As you read about these traders, you can see the unvarnished truth about the psychology and working systems that are necessary to become an exceptional trader. For anyone, from any walk of life, looking to trade successfully, these stories will be a revelation.

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.

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - Książka dotyczy istotnych i bardzo interesujących aspektów pedagogiki resocjalizacyjnej. Ujęcie przedmiotowego zagadnienia readaptacji i reintegracji społecznej stanowi dziś szansę na szersze spojrzenie w kierunku kształtowania oddziaływań resocjalizacyjnych w środowisku życia, a tym samym pozwoli budować nowe relacje społeczne z innymi. Dążenie do inkluzji stanowi dziś warunek dojrzałości społecznej. Szczególnym walorem publikacji staje się, poza naukowymi teoriami, efektywna resocjalizacja w środowiskach, która dziś wymaga globalnego spojrzenia na jednostkę w mikrosystemie, lub stworzenia określonych sytuacji, aby mogła do niego powrócić. Tu wyłania się w zamieszczonych tekstach indywidualność, motywacja, zaangażowanie, odpowiedzialność czy też wsparcie w trudnych sytuacjach jako predyktory warunkujące pozytywną reintegrację społeczną, odnoszące się do wspólnoty narkomanów, jak i osadzonych czy byłych więźniów. (z recenzji dr hab. Anny Kieszkowskiej) Książka jest próbą opisania, zbadania, zrozumienia i zinterpretowania zagadnień resocjalizacyjnych i readaptacyjnych, rozpatrywanych przez pryzmat nie tylko teorii, ale również praktyki wychowania, kształcenia czy kreowania i tworzenia modeli tzw. lepszej rzeczywistości zarówno w przestrzeni zamkniętej z pozbawieniem wolności jako konsekwencją, jak i otwartej w środowisku wolnościowym.

People have many pre-conceived ideas about Africa, many of which are a long way from the truth. People also have many pre-conceived ideas about Voluntary Service Overseas and its volunteers. Many of these ideas are also wrong. Volunteers are skilled professionals looking to make a small difference in an unfair world. Volunteers discover many things, both about themselves and the world they inhabit. Some of these things are good and some are bad. Volunteers also meet many new people, about whom the same rules apply. One thing that every volunteer will tell you is that the experience changed their life. This is one such story, telling the tale of the ups and downs of one VSO volunteer during two years in one of the hottest places on Earth, Eritrea's Red Sea Coast.

SHOW JUMPING IS AN EXTREME SPORT WITH A DRESS CODE, ONE THIS GIRL DOESN'T FOLLOW . . . Imagine being dumped by your mother as a newborn and shifted between foster homes your entire childhood. Imagine being taken in and offered hope for your future by a kind, loving show jumping socialite. Imagine falling in love with some of the most gorgeous horses in the world, and making a life in the thrilling and glamorous sport of international show jumping. Now imagine it all being taken away. Ebony Scott Harris is painfully close to making her dreams a reality when the only mother she has ever known mysteriously dies. She's forced from their home to live with the gold-digging aunt, who takes her in only to ride the prized show jumpers she claims are now hers. Teetering on the edge of a hopeless depression, Ebony is saved by the discovery of a forgotten horse nearly starved to death, and an unlikely partnership with a handsome stranger, whom she must learn to trust if she is to uncover the truth about her mother's death and reclaim her home. But with the evil aunt selling her best and beloved horse, a maniacal ex-coach out for revenge and more savage competitors than she can count, Ebony has a lot more at stake than proving the truth, saving her horses and jumping for gold at the World Equestrian Games . . . The highly anticipated second book in The Go Girls Chronicles - stories of gutsy girls in action sports, by Leigh Hutton! *A PORTION OF EVERY #JumpGirl book sold goes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions* Praise for JUMP GIRL and Leigh Hutton "I am excited for the Jump Girl book because it will be something that riders can actually relate too. It's nice that there is a book that reveals the excitement of the sport while showing there can still be problems and a lot of times things won't go as planned!" #RealLifeJumpGirl, SHELBY EDWARDS "[Jump Girl] gives us a look into the fierce yet glamorous world that is Show Jumping, as well as; Love & Romance, Action & Adventure, Murder & Mystery, Redemption & Self Discovery, all woven together beautifully in this fast paced coming of age novel. I have been lucky enough to read Jump Girl before its release and let me say it is brilliant. Awesome job Leigh. It made me yearn to have a Monster or Gallant of my own. I immediately fell for Ebony. Her life felt so real and I was drawn into it heart first. I could not put the book down. I practically read it in one sitting... Five of five stars for Jump Girl." SARAH FAIRBAIRN, author and Goodreads reviewer 'Intriguing, fun, challenging, 'real', action packed. A fascinating, fast paced adventure that had me hooked . . . Hutton is an author to keep an eye on. Can't wait to see what she writes next.' CAROLYN MARTINEZ, author and editor 'I haven't had much experience with show jumping or horse riding, but by the time I finished the book I felt like I was there in front row seats to every show and experience Ebony had.

Memoir of the Warsaw Uprising New York Review Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A Memoir of the Warsaw Uprising is both a work of memory and a work about memory. Miron Bialoszewski, the great avant-garde Polish poet, memorializes the doomed uprising of the Polish population against their Nazi masters, which began on August 1, 1944, and was eventually abandoned on October 2, 1944, with the physical destruction of Warsaw, street by street and house by house, and the slaughter of 200,000 civilians. Yet Bialoszewski begins his memoir not with an invocation of the great historical events about to unfold but with a simple observation: "Tuesday, August 1, 1944, was cloudy, humid, not too warm...and I remember that there were many trolleys, cars, and people and that right after I reached the corner of Zelazna Street, I realized what day it was (the first of August) and I thought to myself, more or less in these words: 'August 1 is Sunflower Day.' " Bialoszewski concentrates on recalling the things he saw, felt, smelled, and heard. Each object is precious. Each possesses its own integrity, which the violence of the Nazis will destroy. In reclaiming these objects, Bialoszewski combats the inner evil of the time he recounts, the thinking of those for whom the individual is meaningless and the moment is a fraud. In dwelling with loving concern on the cobblestones, glass jars, and the casual words people spoke in passing, Bialoszewski sets himself against those for whom history justifies all actions and violence is a substitute for truth. Bialoszewski rescues memory from history. He rescues the moment from the epic sweep of the thousand-year Reich. He observes "the glaring identity of 'now.' " He tells us: "That is why I am writing about this. Because it is all intermeshed. Everything. My neighborhood too. Leszno, Chlodna, and Muranow. Because the majority of my churches were there. Then the Jews. And Kochanowski. And that woman near the pillars." In reclaiming the memory of the anonymous "woman near the pillars," Bialoszewski reaffirms the life-giving power of the imagination, which all the force of the inhuman Nazi machine could not-and cannot-obliterate.

Excerpt from Beverly: Or, the White Mask, a Novel This chapter is not numbered. It is the revelation of a horrible truth. Hence, it is separated from the chapters of fiction, that, whatever merciless blows the critics may deal the romance, they may, as men and citizens of the Great Republic, allow this chapter to stand as the naked and disgraceful truth for the consideration of thoughtful and Christian men. Boast no more, oh! Americans, of the wisdom, gentleness, forbearance and humanity of our people and our laws, until this great disgrace is wiped away from the escutcheon of the Empire State. This chapter is the truth. To-day similar cruelties are frequent at Sing Sing. This chapter is independent, to a great extent, of the fiction which commences with chapter One, One incident, however, herein related, is essential to the final understanding and development of the plot. But the chapter is a true and faithful picture of Sing Sing, one of the State prisons of New York. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
