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.

Zayda Was a Cowboy Jewish Publication Society

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The extraordinary story of how one family, and one young boy in particular, are changed forever when Zayda (Yiddish for "grandfather") comes to live with them. At first the young narrator, Bill, is resistant to all the changes in the house: Zayda spooks his friends, tries to get Bill to speak Yiddish, and demands strange foods like herring. But as Zayda starts telling Bill and his brother Danny the fascinating story of his life, a story filled with many extraordinary dangers and adventures, the boys begin to see their grandfather in a whole new light. From why, as a young boy, he was forced to flee his Russian village for America to how he eventually became a cowboy, Zayda holds the boys captive with his amazing tale. Like Zayda's grandsons, young readers -- and their parents and teachers -- will also be entranced by Zayda's saga. While the characters are fictional, Zayda's experiences are historically correct and are a colourful retelling of a fascinating yet little-known time of Jewish-American history. This book, like Zayda himself -- funny, touching, and memorable -- is destined to be a favourite of Jewish and non-Jewish children alike, teachers, librarians, and educators for many years to come.

Beyond Enkription - The Burlington Files Dolman Scott

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The author of Beyond Enkription and the rest of The Burlington Files series is Bill Fairclough who was born in England in 1950. In 1978 he founded a niche global intelligence organisation known as "Faire Sans Dire". The series is based on Bill Fairclough's life and some of Faire Sans Dire's activities. Beyond Enkription is the first novel in the series of six novels to be published. The series covers events involving Bill, his beguiling family and his double-dealing colleagues ranging from the First World War to 9/11, the related Nisha incidents and beyond. The series even covers new revelations about the Edward Snowden affair and has been or is being written with film adaptation in mind. Nevertheless each book is or will be a standalone novel albeit each one might comprise several films and/or television series. The first novel is set in 1974 in the heart of the Cold War. It is about a wayward accountant, Edward Burlington aka Bill Fairclough. In 1974 he is unwittingly working as an agent for MI6 by night whilst auditing beans during the day and is nearly murdered not just once but four times between March and June 1974. For his own safety Edward is underhandedly despatched to work as an accountant in Nassau only to be recruited by the CIA and face more death defying moments in the Bahamas, Brazil and Haiti before the year's end. Meanwhile his family are sucked inexorably into the perfidious mess and intrigue surrounding Edward's double life and their own machinations. The repercussions of the Burlington family's activities resonate from Kinshasa to Islamabad via Washington and Westminster and back. Nothing is what it seems to be in this treacherous novel where disinformation is the norm. Beyond Enkription is a family yarn and history; a spy novel and espionage reference book; a mystery and suspense thriller and more besides: a realistic tale of a dynastic duplicitous family that knows instinctively the knack of survival. The brutal opening contrasts well with the tantalising and duplicitous Prologue yet the physicality of the opening chapter is arguably far less vicious than the cerebral scheming that ensues. The book is a distinctive memorable and realistic read full of captivating characters. Its intertwined plots would have challenged Aristotle's intellect. So, when you read it, if you don't think so then you may have lost the plot! As one connoisseur put it succinctly ... "question everything you assume isn't disinformation". Critics described Beyond Enkription as "A compelling, provocative and beguiling spy novel: a must for connoisseurs ..." and "Brutal ab initio, cerebral thereafter but forever realistic ..." As for its realism you can always contrast Bill Fairclough's past on WikiTree or LinkedIn with Edward Burlington. Just how real can you get? We hope you enjoy reading it and succeed in differentiating between fact, fiction and disinformation. Please see,, and for more information ... assuming the authorities haven't closed down our websites by now and the other websites haven't tried to extinguish all evidence of knowledge of The Burlington Files!

Isabel's House of Butterflies Sierra Club Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Outside her home in Michoacan, Mexico, grows eight-year-old Isabel's greatest treasure: an oyamel tree. Every autumn, a miracle happens-for Isabel's tree is the wintering place for thousands upon thousands of monarch butterflies that migrate from the north. When they flutter down to roost, they transform Isabel's tree into La casa de las mariposas-The House of Butterflies. But this wonder is in danger of disappearing forever. Isabel's family is poor, and it has been a cruel, dry year for Papa's meager crop of corn and beans. Soon, chopping down the tree to sell its wood may be the family's only hope for survival. What will happen to the butterflies then? Tony Johnston's poignant tale, as brief and luminous as the lives of the butterflies themselves, is all the more compelling because of the real-life dilemma it presents. Lush paintings by Susan Guevara radiate with the warmth and tenderness between Isabel and her family, and capture Mexican rural life in all its vibrant color and natural beauty.
