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.

Ken Wilson and Quantum Fields - 2854338419

Ken Wilson and Quantum Fields World Scientific Publishing Co Pte Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Kenneth Geddes Wilson (1936-2013) - intellectual giant, Nobel Laureate, intrepid scholar, visionary thinker, pioneering physicist and a person of conscience - made seminal contributions to the foundations of contemporary physics and undertook tireless efforts to bring reforms in the educational system.The purpose of bringing out this volume is to commemorate the memory of Ken Wilson and to preserve the legacy of his ground-breaking advances. This volume brings together a collection of articles written by colleagues of Ken Wilson as well as fellow physicists and scholars - some of who knew him personally and others who are knowledgeable about his sterling contributions to the foundations of theoretical physics.The work of Ken Wilson covers many diverse and apparently unrelated fields, all of which were brought under a common paradigm by the creative and original development and application of the mathematics of quantum field theory. As observed by Wilson, "the intuitive ideas" of quantum field theory and of the entire program of renormalization, "were encased in a thick shell of formalism" and it is widely acknowledged that it was Wilson's visionary approach to quantum field theory that cut through this thick shell of formalism.Based on his deep understanding that the essence of quantum field theory is that it describes a system with infinitely many degrees of freedom, Wilson used the mathematics of quantum field theory and of the renormalization group to solve the problem of classical phase transitions - which consists of the cooperative behavior of infinitely many classical degrees of freedom. In doing this he greatly enhanced the domain of quantum field theory beyond the orbit of quantum systems as well as bringing new insights to quantum field theory from other disciplines.To commemorate the memory of Ken Wilson, many leading and illustrious physicists have agreed to contribute to this volume. These include Murray Gell-Mann, Steven Weinberg, David Gross, Alexander Polyakov, John Schwarz, Kerson Huang, Hao Bailin, Alexander Zamolodchikov, Anthony Zee, Ramamurti Shankar, Edouard Brezin and David Wallace.

New Cambridge History of American Foreign Relations 4 Volume Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Since their first publication, the four volumes of the Cambridge History of American Foreign Relations have served as the definitive source for the topic, from the colonial period to the Cold War. The first volume proposes that the British North American colonists' preexisting desire for expansion, security, and prosperity is both the essence of American foreign relations and the root cause for the creation of the United States. The second describes the dynamics of United States foreign policy from 1865 to 1913, the era when the United States became one of the four great world powers and the world's greatest economic power. The third describes how the United States became a global power during the period from 1913 to 1945, from the inception of Woodrow Wilson's presidency to the end of the Second World War. The revised and expanded fourth volume explores the conditions in the international system at the end of World War II, the American determination to provide leadership, and the security dilemma each superpower posed for the other, while incorporating recent scholarship and revelations, and carrying the narrative into the Barack Obama's administration.

American Higher Education Transformed, 1940-2005 JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This long-awaited sequel to Richard Hofstadter and Wilson Smith's classic anthology American Higher Education: A Documentary History presents one hundred and seventy-two key edited documents that record the transformation of higher education over the past sixty years. The volume includes such seminal documents as Vannevar Bush's 1945 report to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Science, the Endless Frontier; the U.S. Supreme Court decisions in Brown v. Board of Education and S weezy v. New Hampshire; and Adrienne Rich's challenging essay "Taking Women Students Seriously." The wide variety of readings underscores responses of higher education to a memorable, often tumultuous, half century. Colleges and universities faced a transformation of their educational goals, institutional structures and curricula, and admission policies; the ethnic and economic composition of student bodies; an expanding social and gender membership in the professoriate; their growing allegiance to and dependence on federal and foundation financial aids; and even the definitions and defenses of academic freedom. Wilson Smith and Thomas Bender have assembled an essential reference for policymakers, administrators, and all those interested in the history and sociology of higher education.

Grand Expectations - 2854239400

Grand Expectations Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Beginning in 1945, America rocketed through a quarter-century of extraordinary economic growth, experiencing an amazing boom that soared to unimaginable heights in the 1960s. At one point, in the late 1940s, American workers produced 57 percent of the planet's steel, 62 percent of the oil, 80 percent of the automobiles. The U.S. then had three-fourths of the world's gold supplies. English Prime Minister Edward Heath later said that the United States in the post-War era enjoyed "the greatest prosperity the world has ever known." It was a boom that produced a national euphoria, a buoyant time of grand expectations and an unprecedented faith in our government, in our leaders, and in the American dream--an optimistic spirit which would be shaken by events in the '60s and '70s, and particularly by the Vietnam War. Now, in Grand Expectations, James T. Patterson has written a highly readable and balanced work that weaves the major political, cultural, and economic events of the period into a superb portrait of America from 1945 through Watergate. Here is an era teeming with memorable events--from the bloody campaigns in Korea and the bitterness surrounding McCarthyism to the assassinations of the Kennedys and Martin Luther King, to the Vietnam War, Watergate, and Nixon's resignation. Patterson excels at portraying the amazing growth after World War II--the great building boom epitomized by Levittown (the largest such development in history) and the baby boom (which exploded literally nine months after V-J Day)--as well as the resultant buoyancy of spirit reflected in everything from streamlined toasters, to big, flashy cars, to the soaring, butterfly roof of TWA's airline terminal in New York. And he shows how this upbeat, can-do mood spurred grander and grander expectations as the era progressed. Of course, not all Americans shared in this economic growth, and an important thread running through the book is an informed and gripping depiction of the civil rights movement--from the electrifying Brown v. Board of Education decision, to the violent confrontations in Little Rock, Birmingham, and Selma, to the landmark civil rights acts of 1964 and 1965. Patterson also shows how the Vietnam War--which provoked LBJ's growing credibility gap, vast defense spending that dangerously unsettled the economy, and increasingly angry protests--and a growing rights revolution (including demands by women, Hispanics, the poor, Native Americans, and gays) triggered a backlash that widened hidden rifts in our society, rifts that divided along racial, class, and generational lines. And by Nixon's resignation, we find a national mood in stark contrast to the grand expectations of ten years earlier, one in which faith in our leaders and in the attainability of the American dream was becoming shaken. Grand Expectations is the newest volume in the prestigious Oxford History of the United States. The earlier releases were highly acclaimed, and one, Battle Cry of Freedom, was both a New York Times bestseller and a winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Patterson's volume takes its rightful place beside these distinguished works. It is a brilliant summation of the years that created the America that we know today, a time of setbacks amid unmatched and lasting achievements.

Brazilian Photographs of Genevieve Naylor, 1940-1942 Duke University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In the early 1940s as the conflict between the Axis and the Allies spread worldwide, the U.S. State Department turned its attention to Axis influence in Latin America. As head of the Office of Inter-American Affairs, Nelson Rockefeller was charged with cultivating the region's support for the Allies while portraying Brazil and its neighbours as dependable wartime partners. Genevieve Naylor, a photojournalist previously employed by the Associated Press and the WPA, was sent to Brazil in 1940 by Rockefeller's agency to provide photographs that would support its need for propaganda. Often balking at her mundane assignments, an independent-minded Naylor produced something far different and far more rich - a stunning collection of over a thousand photographs that document a rarely seen period in Brazilian history.Accompanied by analysis from Robert M. Levine, this selection of Naylor's photographs offers a unique view of everyday life during one of modern Brazil's least-examined decades. Working under the constraints of the Vargas dictatorship, the instructions of her employers, and a chronic shortage of film and photographic equipment, Naylor took advantage of the freedom granted her as an employee of the U.S. government. Travelling beyond the fashionable neighbourhoods of Rio de Janeiro, she conveys in her work the excitement of an outside observer for whom all is fresh and new - along with a sensibility schooled in depression-era documentary photography of Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans, as well as the work of Cartier-Bresson and filmmaker Serge Eisenstein.Her subjects include the very rich and the very poor, black Carnival dancers, fishermen, rural peasants from the interior, workers crammed into trolleys - ordinary Brazilians in their own setting - rather than simply Brazilian symbols of progress as required by the dictatorship or a population viewed as exotic Latins for the consumption of North American travellers. With Levine's text providing details of Naylor's life, perspectives on her photographs as social documents, and background on Brazil's wartime relationship with the United States, this volume, illustrated with more than one hundred of Naylor's Brazilian photographs will interest scholars of Brazilian culture and history, photojournalists and students of photography, and all readers seeking a broader perspective on Latin American culture during World War II.Genevieve Naylor began her career as a photojournalist with "Time", "Fortune", and the Associated Press before being sent to Brazil. In 1943, upon her return, she became only the second woman to be the subject of a one-woman show at New York's Museum of Modern Art. She served as Eleanor Roosevelt's personal photographer and, in the 1950s and 1960s became well known for her work in "Harper's Bazaar", primarily as a fashion photographer and portraitist. She died in 1989. Robert M. Levine is Professor of History and Director of Latin American Studies at the University of Miami, Coral Gables. He is the author of many books on Latin American history, including Images of History, also published by Duke University Press.From reviews of "Faces and Places in Brazil", Genevieve Naylor's 1943 exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art: 'A superb collection of Brazilian photography. .."Faces and Places in Brazil" ...is a must see' - "New York Times". 'The product of an immensely sophisticated artist' - "San Francisco Chronicle". 'Miss Naylor captures the feeling, flavor, joy, pathos of all the blending cultures ...of this fascinating nation' - "San Francisco Examiner".'Genevieve Naylor was one of many Americans, including Orson Wells, Walt Disney, and Errol Flynn dispatched to Brazil to help strengthen the war-time alliance. Her photographs, perhaps the largest surviving body of work portraying the country during the war years, concentrated on ordinary people and captured their everyday struggles, optimism, and inner spirit. Robert M. Levine's sensitive and intelligent introduction and wonderful sampling of Naylor's work are sure to delight photography enthusiasts and historians' - Colin M. MacLachlan, Tulane University.

Germany and the Holy Roman Empire Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Germany and the Holy Roman Empire offers a striking new interpretation of a crucial era in German and European history, from the great reforms of 1495-1500 to the dissolution of the Reich in 1806. Over two volumes, Joachim Whaley rejects the notion that this was a long period of decline, and shows instead how imperial institutions developed in response to the crises of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, notably the Reformation and Thirty Years War. The impact of international developments on the Reich is also examined. Volume II begins with the Peace of Westphalia and concludes with the dissolution of the Reich. Whaley analyses the remarkable resurgence of the Reich after the Thirty Years War, which saw the Habsburg emperors achieve a new position of power and influence and which enabled the Reich to withstand the military threats posed by France and the Turks in the later seventeenth century. He gives a rich account of topics such as Pietism and baroque Catholicism, the German enlightenment, and the impact on the Empire and its territories of the French Revolution and Napolean. Whaley emphasizes the continuing viability of the Reich's institutions to the end, and the vitality of a political culture of freedom that has been routinely underestimated by historians of modern Germany.

Myanmar/Burma Brookings Institution

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The nation of Myanmar-or Burma, the name still used in much of the West-is in the midst of a political succession process centered on multiparty elections to be held toward the end of 2010. Approaching that critical event, this volume looks at the nation through the eyes of the country's ASEAN partners, its superpower neighbors China and India, the United States, and its own people. It provides insights into the problem of national reconciliation, the strategic competition between China and India, the role of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and the underperforming, resource-cursed economy. Burma had the brightest prospects of any Southeast Asian nation after World War II but has since dropped to the bottom rungs of the world's socioeconomic ladder and was labeled an outpost of tyrannyA" by U.S. Secretary of State Condeleeza Rice in 2005. The current regime has ruled with an iron fist for several decades, producing an exodus of political and economic refugees. It came under intensified international scrutiny for repudiating the 1990 elections and suppressing Nobel Peace Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi. This important book was prompted by the change in U.S. policy toward Myanmar/Burma signaled very early in the Obama administration. Noting that fifteen years of sanctions had not had measurable impact, the administration adopted a new policy of pragmatic engagementA" that links the eventual removal of sanctions to implementation of greater freedom and respect for human rights.

Global Industrial Complex - 2854321119

Global Industrial Complex Lexington Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Global Industrial Complex: Systems of Domination is a groundbreaking collection of essays by a diverse set of leading scholars who examine the entangled and evolving global array of corporate-state structures of hegemonic power-what the editors refer to as "the power complex"-that was first analyzed by C. Wright Mills in his 1956 classic work, The Power Elite. In this new volume edited by Steven Best, Richard Kahn, Anthony J. Nocella II, and Peter McLaren, the power complex is conceived as co-constituted, interdependent and imbricated systems of domination. Spreading insidiously on a global level, the transnational institutional relationships of the power complex combine the logics of capitalist exploitation and profits and industrialist norms of efficiency, control, and mass production, While some have begun to analyze these institutional complexes as separate entities, this book is unique in analyzing them as overlapping, mutually-enforcing systems that operate globally and which will undoubtedly frame the macro-narrative of the 21st century (and perhaps beyond). The global industrial complex-a grand power complex of complexes-thus poses one of the most formidable challenges to the sustainability of planetary democracy, freedom and peace today. But there can be no serious talk of opposition to it until it is more popularly named and understood. The Global Industrial Complex aims to be a foundational contribution to this emerging educational and political project.
