Vindication of Anglo-Catholic Principles (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from A Vindication of Anglo-Catholic Principles Under the title of "Anglo-Catholic Principles Vindicated," this Work, first published as Special Supplements to the English Churchman, is now being re-issued in a series of Numbers. It will contain select portions and extracts from the works of cotemporary authors, (having their permission), with special reviews of recent doctrinal works, and other contributions, forming a Catena of concurrent testimony to those great Principles of the English Reformation - alike Scriptural and Catholic, - of which, by God's blessing, there has been such an earnest revival in the Church of England during the last thirty years. The selections are chosen with the desire to give full expression to the Divine Truths of the Sacraments, and other essential truths, (on which there are still such lamentable differences among sincere Churchmen,) in the bonâ fide spirit of the English Prayer-book, - neither shrinking from the full recognition of the Catholic doctrines of our Church, as had been too generally the case before the revival of Church principles, nor subverting them, in effect, by a disloyal attempt (which is now being made by some among us) to strain them beyond their true meaning and intent. The Parts of this Series from the 1st to the 6th are now completed. A short review of the Revival of Church Principles of late years in the Anglican Church, by the Bishop of Western New York, was selected for the first Part, as forming an introduction to the entire Series; and we are much indebted to him for the means of giving to our fellow Churchmen in England such an earnest and grateful acknowledgment of the results for good to the Church, for which we cannot be too thankful, and also for his friendly warning against the errors and excesses that have grown up with its progress. In the second Part we have endeavoured to set forth, in the impressive and eloquent language of the Bishop of Winchester, the Bishop of Western New York, and the Dean of Chichester, the great Principles of the English Reformation, - reminding us of our best Inheritance and only true Bond of Union, and as unfurling before the Churches and the Sects our rallying Standard in these "latter days," when we have to deplore so many signs around us of perverse self-will in teaching and practice, producing so much discord and distrust. "If the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?" We have devoted Parts III., IV., V., and VI. to the consideration of the Sacrament of Holy Communion, in regard to its doctrine, its rites, and its most important conditions. As the highest Mystery of the Christian Church, and the richest blessing to the human race, we have endeavoured to approach so holy a subject in no spirit of mere controversy, but with the sole and earnest desire to bear witness to and vindicate the Truth, revealed to us in God's Holy Word. Our best acknowledgments are due to those Authors who have given us their free permission to republish portions of their works, and have thus enabled us to fulfil one of the chief objects for which this Series has been undertaken.

Mathematics of Plato's Academy Clarendon Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is an updated edition of an original and controversial book. As well as revising parts of the text and substantially updating the bibliography, in a new Appendix the author takes a more polemical stance and enters into a discussion of the nature and range of different interpretations. The book is divided into three parts; Interpretation, Evidence, and Later developments. The first part presents several new interpretations of the idea of ratio in early Greek mathematics and illustrates them in detailed discussions of several texts. Part Two focuses on the sources themselves, and questions the depth of modern knowledge of Plato's Academy during his lifetime, the source of our text of Euclid's Elements, and modern understanding of early Greek mathematics. The final part contrasts some of the evidence from early and late antiquity and then gives a historical account, since the seventeeth century, of the theory of continued fractions, our version today of the mathematics underlying the reconstruction. From reviews of the first edition: '...a real treat.' Greece and Rome '...cites an impressive array of evidence...The result should be widely read by classicists and mathematicians as well as historians of mathematics. ' ISIS '...he enters into classical scholarship here with a really 'new reconstruction' of early Greek mathematics.' Nature '...this fascinating book...will arouse the interest and command the admiration of any historically minded lover of mathematics with a taste for the unorthodox.' Institute of Mathematics and its Applications 'This book, speculative in the best sense, engages the ancient material on its own terms in setting forth what the Greeks might have thought and done...While the book represents an important departure in historical research in its reaching beyond the spare formalism of surviving materials to an understanding of motivation and perception, its careful documentations and technical descriptions make it valuable in a more traditional way.'

Handbook of Materials for Stringed Musical Instruments Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book covers the materials science of wood and all the other materials used in the construction of string instruments of modern symphony orchestras - violins, violas, cellos and basses. Moreover it covers materials for classical guitars, harps, harpsichords and pianos. While some of the approaches discussed are traditional, most of them depend upon new scientific approaches to the study of the structure of materials, such as for example wood cell structure, which is visible only using modern high resolution microscopic techniques. Many examples of modern and classical instruments are examined, together with the relevance of classical techniques for the treatment of wood. Composite materials, especially designed for soundboards could be a good substitute for some traditional wood species. The body and soundboard of the instrument are of major importance for their acoustical properties, but the study also examines traditional and new wood species used for items such as bows, the instrument neck, string pegs, etc. Wood species' properties for musical instruments and growth origins of woods, used by great makers such as Antonio Stradivari, are examined and compared with more recently grown woods available to current makers. The role of varnish in the appearance and acoustics of the final instrument is also discussed, since it has often been proposed as a 'secret ingredient' used by great makers. Aspects related to strings are also discussed.§The book provides many illustrations of classical and contemporary instruments, and takes into consideration the conservation and restoration of old instruments and the physical results of these techniques. The author examines at all issues, including the current value of old instruments both for modern performances and as works of art of great monetary value.§The book is an important reference for researchers and graduate students working on materials for musical instruments, conservators of wood artifacts of historical value, modern string instrument makers and historians of musical instruments.§Musicians may also find some interesting revelations in some parts of this book.§Finally this book will also be of interest to those studying wood for a variety of other purposes, for its use in musical instruments uncovers many of its fundamental features.

Meaning and Structure Ashgate Publishing Limited

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Jaroslav Peregrin explores the relationship between meaning and structure, taking as his starting point an introduction to the aspects of the Saussurean legacy that he feels are crucial in this endeavour and can be seen as congenial to the views of language entertained by the "postanalytic" philosophers. To show the compatibility of de Saussure's structuralism to the theses of analytical philosophy, he outlines the similarities between de Saussure's account of "linguistic reality" with Gottlob Frege's account of the nature of abstract entities. Peregrin claims that, as structure is a way in which some parts are organized into a whole, we need a theory of systems of parts and wholes. He considers the theory proposed for this purpose by Stanislaw Lesniewski but concludes that this theory is not exactly what is needed, and he offers a sketch of a more suitable mathematical theory. He then tries to make a mathematical sense of the Saussurean idea of the birth of "the structural" out of oppositions. In the second part of the book, Peregrin turns his attention to the postanalytic philosophers whose views of language he wants to portray as continuous with de Saussure's teaching. He studies the views of Willard Van Orman Quine, whose widely discussed indeterminacy theses can be read as simply pointing out the structural nature of language. Peregrin finds that Quine's holism, with which he replaces the atomism of his analytic predecessors, is nothing other than a form of structuralism. He next considers Donald Davidson's insight that the opposition which is crucial from the viewpoint of meaning is that between truth and falsity. The view of language originally put forward by Wilfrid Sellars and developed by Robert Brandom is scrutinized to reveal that, according to Brandom, language is first and foremost our means of engaging in the practice of giving and asking for reasons. Hence, Peregrin interprets, language's statements are useful only in so far as they are interrelated with other statements, as they can be used as reasons for other statements or be justified by means of other statements. In the third part of the book, Peregrin summarizes the outcome of the previous considerations by claiming that the structure of language that is constitutive of its semantics is the "inferential structure", and that the meaning of an expression is most adequately identified with its inferential role. He goes on to consider the general relationship between the realm of formal structures and models (such as those dealt with by formal semantics) and that of real phenomena (such as our natural language). In the final chapter, Peregrin challenges some common wisdoms regarding "semantic structures" or "logical forms" of expression, and tries to show that from the vantage point presented in his book, both the concept of "logical form" as developed by Chomsky and his followers, and that as developed by the logicians following Russell, are problematic.

The Nuclear Program of Iran GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, grade: 2,0, University of the Federal Armed Forces München (Institut für Politikwissenschaft), course: U.S. Nonproliferation and Counterproliferation Policy, language: English, abstract: Since the uprising in North Africa and the Middle East and the horrific tsunami in Japan the nuclear program of Iran moved into the background of international politics. But the issue is still newsworthy. For many years Iran is in a negative focus of Western governments and media. The reason for this is the speculation about the secret development of a nuclear bomb by Iran in coherence with its nuclear program. There has been some evidence that Tehran strives for becoming a nuclear power. In 2002 the uranium enrichment plant in Natanz and the heavy-water reactor in Arak were detected. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) started their investigations, but could not find any sign for a military nuclear program, although they talk about a policy of deception by Iran. They stated therefore simply: Iran has failed to meet its obligations under its Safeguard Agreements with respect to the reporting of nuclear material, the subsequent processing and use of that material and the declaration of facilities where the material was stored and processed".§This event called up distrust by the West. The Western states, mainly the United States, Great Britain, France and Germany still accuse Iran to keep some parts of the nuclear program secret, while officials of the Iranian government try to assure the intention for a peaceful use of nuclear energy. One of the main problems is that a military nuclear program is hard to differ from a peaceful one. The difference between a peaceful nuclear program and a military nuclear program, with a nuclear bomb in its result, is only approximately 5 percent in the final-stage of the development. When Iran would have been built up the full nuclear cycle for a peaceful use of nuclear energy the country would have the possibility to develop nuclear weapons in a short time.§This leads necessarily to the question which of these positions is the right one. Does Iran really like to develop the nuclear bomb or is the fear of the West disproportionate? If Iran tries to use atoms for peace there should be no problem, but the last years where characterized by secretiveness from the Iranian side towards the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and a lurching in the bargaining position during the negotiations with the United States and the EU-3 (Great Britain, France and Germany). To the Western civilization this seems as an indication for a secret military nuclear program...

Third Reich in Power Penguin

Inne 1

The Third Reich in Power examines how it was possible for a group of ideological obsessives to remould a society famous for its sophistication and complexity into a one-party state directed at war and race hate.  Richard J. Evans shows how the Nazis won over the hearts and minds of German citizens, twisted science, religion and culture, and transformed the economy, education, law and order to achieve total dominance in German politics and society.  Drawing on an extraordinary range of research, blending narrative, description and analysis he creates a picture of a dictatorship consumed by visceral hatreds and ambitions, and driven by war. 'Authoritative history... impressive sweep... This essential book comes as a stark reminder, should we need one, of how much freedom a people is prepared to give away in a political climate dominated by fear.' Daily Telegraph Extract from The Third Reich in Power, 1933-1939 by Richard J. Evans Despised minorities were, to be sure, put in the concentration camps; but to focus exclusively on this ignores the much larger number of political and other deviants condemned by the courts and put in state prisons and penitentiaries.  The further in time we get from Nazi Germany, the more difficult it becomes for historians living in democratic political systems and in cultures which respect the rights of the individual to make the leap of imagination necessary to understand people's behaviour in a state such as Nazi Germany, where imprisonment, torture or even death might await anyone who dared to voice the slightest criticism of the regime and its leaders.  Those who approved of such repression were in all likelihood a minority, active supporters and functionaries of the Party like the Block Wardens, and a good number of middle- and upper-class, conservative Germans who thought the best place for Marxists to be was in prison anyway.  Even they, however, knew well enough that they had to be careful about what they said and did, and the dangers of not doing so became abundantly clear once opposition began to spread among these groups too.  The shots that killed Kurt von Schleicher, Herbert von Bose, Edgar Jung, Gustav von Kahr, Erich Klausener and Kurt von Bredow at the beginning of July 1934 were also a warning to upper- and middle-class conservatives to keep their heads down if they did not want them to be blown off. Ordinary conservative citizens like Luise Solmitz, who harboured no thoughts of political activism, may have turned aside from the bleak fact of the regime's willingness to murder its opponents, revealed so starkly in late June and early July 1934, in their relief that the order they craved had been restored; to such people, Röhm's stormtroopers seemed as great a menace as the Reichsbanner or the Red Front-Fighters' League of the Weimar years.  Yet behind closed doors they cannot have been oblivious to the fate of the conservative clique around Vice-Chancellor von Papen.  It was not only the third or so of the population who had been committed to the Marxist left before 1933 that was subject to massive intimidation.  Indeed, scarcely had the murderous violence of the 'Night of the Long Knives' receded, than an even larger minority than the Marxists, that of the German Catholics, began to be prosecuted and imprisoned as they gave vent to their increasingly critical views of the regime in public.  More general still were measures such as the Law on Malicious Gossip, which clamped down on the most trivial expressions of dissent and put people who told jokes about Hitler and Göring in prison.  These were mainly members of the German working class, it is true, but the working class after all made up around half the entire population, and middle- and even upper-class offenders in this respect were brought before the Special Courts as well.  Successful prosecutions under this law were a further instrument of mass intimidation, adding to the general climate of fear and helping to create the spiral of silence in which the regime could commit ever greater crimes without fear of public censure or opposition. The truth is that far from Nazi terror being levelled exclusively against small and despised minorities, the threat of arrest, prosecution and incarceration in increasingly brutal and violent conditions loomed over everyone in the Third Reich, even, as we have seen in the cases brought before the Special Courts, over members of the Nazi Party itself.  The regime intimidated Germans into acquiescence, visiting a whole range of sanctions upon those who dared to oppose it, systematically disorienting people, and depriving them of their traditional social and cultural milieux, such as the pub or the club or the voluntary association, above all where these could be seen as a potential source of resistance, as in the case of the labour movement.  Fear and terror were integral parts of the Nazis' armoury of political weapons from the very beginning.  The state and the Party could use them because within a few months of Hitler's appointment as Reich Chancellor, they had systematically deprived all Germans of virtually every basic human and civil right they had enjoyed under the Weimar Republic.  The law was no protection against the state if the state or any of its agencies suspected that a citizen was disinclined to demonstrate approval of its policies and purposes.  On the contrary, vast numbers of new, often draconian laws were decreed that gave the police, the Gestapo and the SS a virtual carte blanche to deal with anyone suspected of deviating from the norms of human behaviour laid down by the Third Reich for its citizens.  In this situation, it was not surprising that ordinary people and lower-level officials of the Nazi Party began to reinforce the atmosphere of pervasive terror and intimidation by sending their own unsolicited denunciations of deviants to the Gestapo. At the same time, the Gestapo was only one part of a much wider net of surveillance, terror and persecution cast by the Nazi regime over German society in the 1930s; others included the SA and SS, the Criminal Police, the prison service, the social services and employment offices, the medical profession, health centres and hospitals, the Hitler Youth, the Block Wardens and even apparently politically neutral organizations like tax offices, the railway and the post office.  All of these furnished information about deviants and dissidents to the Gestapo, the courts and the prosecution service, forming a polymorphous, uncoordinated but pervasive system of control in which the Gestapo was merely one institution among many.  Everything that happened in the Third Reich took place in this pervasive atmosphere of fear and terror, which never slackened and indeed became far more intense towards the end.  'Do you know what fear is?' an elderly worker asked an interviewer some years after it was all over:  'No. The Third Reich was fear.'  Yet terrorism was only one of the Third Reich's techniques of rule.  For the Nazis did not just seek to batter the population into passive, sullen acquiescence.  They also wanted to rouse it into positive, enthusiastic endorsement of their ideals and their policies, to change people's minds and spirits and to create a new German culture that would reflect their values alone.  This meant propaganda, and here too, as we shall now see, they went to unprecedented lengths to achieve their aims.

The Charles F. Haanel Anthology I. Including: The Mastey Key System AND The New Psychology Charles F. Haanel was a successful business man who discovered that spiritual life is a key to success in everything you do. He proved that what is happening outside is in a direct relation to what is taking place in your consciousness. When the Master Key was published, it was one of those books that successful business men wanted out of the market. They didn't want people to read this book as its truths would help anyone to overcome limitations. He explains in very plain language how to create your own world according to your own desires in accordance with your level of discipline in attaining your goals. The rumor is that when Bill Gates was just a student, he read this book and utilized its truths. Rest is history. The Mastey Key System Every thing and institution we see around us, created by human agency, had first to exist as a thought in some human mind. Thought, therefore, is constructive. Human thought is the spiritual power of the cosmos operating through its creature man. "The Master Key" instructs the reader how to use that power, and use it both constructively and creatively. The things and conditions we desire to become realities we must first create in thought. "The Master Key" explains and guides the process. "The Master Key" teaching has hitherto been published in the form of a Correspondence Course of 24 lessons, delivered to students one per week for 24 weeks. The reader, who now receives the whole 24 parts at one time, is warned not to attempt to read the book like a novel, but to treat it as a course of study and conscientiously to imbibe the meaning of each part - reading and re-reading one part only per week before proceeding to the next. Otherwise, the later parts will tend to be misunderstood and the reader's time and money will be wasted. Used as thus instructed, "The Master Key" will make of the reader a greater, better personality, and equipped with a new power to achieve any worthy personal purpose and a new ability to enjoy life's beauty and wonder. The New Psychology Book Description The New Psychology with a synthesis of philosophy, science, metaphysics, and religion-defines man's place in the universe and reveals his latent powers with a vividness that reminds the reader of a lightening flash. Man is the architect of his own fortune. He can make or unmake himself. He can be weak or strong, rich or poor, according to the way he manipulates his consciousness and develops his inherent ability. This requires will power, determination, and self-improvement through work, activity, and study. He must learn to clothe his mind with beautiful garments of strength and power. He must be willing to spend

Excerpt from The Races, Religions, and Institutions of Turkey and the Neighboring Countries The sources of the Aryan races, which now occupy Europe and some parts of Asia, are, it is believed, in Central Asia; but swarms of that branch of mankind have passed from their original seats in times anterior to history. The Persians were a very early and very civilised Aryan race, inhabiting a country much larger, much more fertile, and much more prosperous than the present Persia. Other Aryan races passed to the east, and, conquering the aboriginal tribes of India, formed the modern Hindoos. In Western Asia, again, Armenia, and Asia Minor were occupied by Aryan races; and in Europe, in the dawn of history, we find the greater part of the Continent occupied by early Aryan races - Latins, Greeks, and Celts. The Latins conquered and assimilated most of the Celtic countries, and formed the present Latin nations of Italy, France, and Spain. A portion of the countries to the eastward of Italy, upon the Danube, were also Latinised in early days, and traces of these Latinised races are still found there. The Greeks, though great in their civilisation, were never a very numerous people. They pushed their colonies and their civilisation beyond their own limits, and the neighbouring Macedonians becoming identified with them, they conquered a great part of the world. Although they were subjected by the Romans they achieved a moral conquest of their conquerors; and the Roman Empire in its later days became Greek in its language, its literature, its arts, and its religion. The Teutonic or German races were a later wave of the Aryan immigration, and occupied the modern Germany, the low German countries of Holland and Sleswig, England, and the countries which we call Scandinavian - viz., Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Last of the Aryan races came the Slavs into Europe, and they are so important to our present subject that I shall ask your particular attention to them.

Perso-Arabic Loanwords in Hindustani. Part II. Linguistic study Księgarnia Akademicka Sp. z o.o.

Pozostałe kraje / arabski

Preface This book constitutes the second part of the two-volume monograph dedicated to the phenomenon of Perso-Arabic lexical borrowings in Hindustani (by some scholars also named Hindi-Urdu or Hirdu). It is a linguistic study of their adaptation, meant to demonstrate how the analyzed loanwords function in the contemporary system of the Hindustani language, through detailed examination of the adaptation processes, which occured on all the levels of this system: graphemic, phonetic and phonological, morphological, lexical and semantic. The first part, published in 2008, is a substantial dictionary of borrowings (Perso-Arabic Loanwords in Hindustani. Part I. Dictionary), encompassing over 5500 entries, which over the centuries (starting approximately from the 11th-12th c.), entered into the languages and dialects of North India* as a result of the contacts between local communities and Muslim incomers. The lexical material gathered in the Dictionary was taken as the corpus for this study. The analytical part of the book is preceded by a substantial theoretical introduction, in which, along with a brief explanation concerning the aim of the work and its methodical and formal assumptions, two issues, crucial for further considerations, are discussed in a synthetic but at the same time meticulous manner. The first - specifying the language of origin for the studied linguistic material, which was the basis for further analysis - is an attempt to display and scrutinize the ambiguous appellation “Hindustani” in its manifold meanings and scopes - especially in respect to two other terms, with which it is inseparably connected, namely Hindi and Urdu. Discussing the range of their meaning and demonstrating how they have been understood by particular users, researchers, and various official bodies in different periods, helped to outline the background for both constructing a definition of Hindustani and drawing its boundaries that are in force in the presented study: the linguistic continuum current in the common speech - a lingua franca, unofficially, but fully functioning as a link language on the Indian subcontinent. The second problem discussed in the Introduction is the situation of linguistic contact between the Persian and Indo-Arian languages. It is described in a broader context of intercultural encounters, which intensified after the 12th c., when the Muslims took over vast parts of the Indian subcontinent, establishing their domination not only in the sphere of politics and administration but also in that of culture. In the subsequent part of the study two areas were given special attention: an analysis of graphemic adaptation (Chapter 2) and phonetic and phonological changes (Chapter 3). The reason for this type of approach was the fact that both these areas of the Hindustani linguistic system are of a binary character, i.e. Hindustani employs two writing systems equally - the Nagari and the modified Perso-Arabic script (which was also used for original notation of the borrowed words). This dichotomy in the script can immensely influence the kind and degree of phonological changes and the phonetic realization of given lexemes. All this greatly complicates the process of studying lexical borrowings because, for example, the same lexemes can simultaneously undergo the processes of adaptation and adoption - depending on the language register. In Chapter 4, the analyzed loanwords are described in terms of their adaptation to the Hindustani morphological and syntactic system. This part of the book also includes information on the borrowed morphosyntactic phenomena, introduced into Hindustani during the process of immense lexical borrowing, and their influence on the native system. The last Chapter 5 is an attempt to categorize the discussed lexical material according to various criteria employed in both diachronic and synchronic linguistics. The analyses of Perso-Arabic loanwords in Hindustani presented in the book, although comprehensive, did not exhaust the whole extent of the issue - if only because of limiting the studied material to a definite set of lexemes and their sources. However, they provided a solid theoretical basis by showing and explaining the general mechanisms, which rule this phenomenon at all the levels of the language system. It is to be hoped that this work may be an inspiration for further - general or detailed - research, dedicated, for example, to such questions as the contextual functioning of the borrowings (depending on the kind of text/ethnolect/lan- guage register), intentional “macaronization” (here: Persianization or Arabicization) or the purification of language in the diachronic and synchronic approaches; internationalisms, doublets and caiques (which are only briefly mentioned in the book), etc. The work may also prove useful to researchers engaged in similar studies on other Indo-Aryan languages, as it can be assumed, with a high level of probability, that at least some of the phenomena and processes described in Hindustani are analogous to those occurring in other South Asian linguistic substrata. * Here and in most of the work, for practical reasons and in accordance with the usage found in most reference texts, India is used synonymously with South Asia, implying an older meaning of the word, not influenced by present-day circumstances and divisions. However, the name is occasionally used to denote the contemporary state (Republic of India), and in such cases the reader can infer it from the context.

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.

With its many and diverse languages, including some with very long documented histories, its cultural diversity, and its widespread multilingualism- both the stable and transient kind- the Himalayan region is a treasure trove of empirical data for linguistic research on language typology and universals, historical linguistics, language contact and areal linguistics. Himalayan Languages contains contributions on Himalayan linguistics written by some of the leading experts in the field. The volume is divided into three parts: First, a general overview is given of the linguistic study of Himalayan languages and language communities. The second part offers synchronic studies of individual languages of the region (Indo-Aryan languages Shina and Kalasha, and Tibeto-Burman languages Belhare, Magar, Kinnauri, Classical Tibetan and Thangmi). The papers in the third part of the volume address topics in historical and areal linguistics, with an emphasis on the Tibeto-Burman languages of the region, discussing grammaticalization processes (in Sunwar, Newar, Seke, Tshangla and Bantawa) and the subgrouping of Tibeto-Burman.
