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 / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Landscape, politics and history: the Italian mountains as a crucible of national and natural identity. This book is part of a wider current in environmental history, that explores the links between nature and nation. It uncovers how Italian identity and mountains have constituted one another. It argues that state regimes since unification in 1861 have made mountains into national symbols and resources, thereby affecting mountain communities and ecosystems. The nationalisation of Italian mountains has been a story of military conquest and resistance, ecological and social transformation, expropriating resources and imposing meanings. The wind of 'big' history was rolling through the Alps and the Apennines: State building and national identities, totalitarianism and democracy, economic development and environmental protection, scientific knowledge and vernacular practices are the substance of this book. The book starts with the revaluation of mountains as the repository of the last Italian wilderness and chronicles the discovery/ invention of mountains as wild, primitive, and rebellious places needing to be tamed. War World I permanently transformed mountain landscapes and people, nationalising both. When the Fascists came to power, the process of politicisation of mountains reached its acme; the regime constructed and exploited mountains both rhetorically and materially, on one hand celebrating ruralism and rural people and, on the other, giving mountain natural resources to large hydro-electric corporations. Having been the sanctuary of Resistance against the Nazi-Fascist occupation, the Italian mountains were emptied by the economic boom of the 1960s; only recently have the green of natural parks and the white of the ski resorts become the distinctive colors of the new, tourist-oriented Italian mountains.

Alain de Botton, best-selling author of How Proust can Change Your Life, has set six of the finest minds in the history of philosophy to work on the problems of everyday life. Here then are Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche on some of the things that bother us all; lack of money, the pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety, the fear of failure and the pressure to conform.

Boy Who Conquered Everest Hay House

Jordan Romero was a regular 9 year old boy. He loved BMX biking, listening to music, hanging out with his friends and family, participating in school activities, and studying nature and reptiles. So why would he want to climb the world's tallest mountains? What made him decide to try something so dangerous and difficult? It all started when Jordan spotted a map of the famous "Seven Summits," the tallest mountains on Earth's seven continents, including massive Mt. Everest-the tallest of all. Jordan could not take his eyes off of that map; his head was filled with thoughts of snow-covered peaks, jagged rocks, billowing white clouds and deep blue skies. Four years later, Jordan stood and gazed down at those peaks and cloudy skies from the 29,035 ft. summit of Mt. Everest. He had reached his goal: To conquer the mightiest of mountains "and" inspire other kids to dream BIG! How did he do it? This is his story...

Mosquitoes Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Mosquitoes: How They Live; How They Carry Disease; How They Are Classified; Hoe They May Be Destoryed Some years ago I was visiting a family in the mountains. It was during a dry season, and water was scarce. There were no swamps, no lakes or pools, and the drinking-water was taken from springs; yet mosquitoes were so plentiful that it was necessary to screen the porches, that sitting out of an evening might be made possible. I asked where the water came from in which they washed their clothes, and they replied, as expected, "From a rain-water tank," which, as it happened, was situated under the porch. I investigated the tank and found it literally alive with mosquito larvae. A pint of kerosene stopped the breeding, and as the water was drawn from a faucet near the bottom of the tank the kerosene did not injure it. The indifference of this family as to the source of their local mosquito pest, or rather their combined ignorance of and indifference to the subject of the breeding-places, was at that time - and it was not so very long ago - characteristic of people in general. It was my good fortune, through the wide-spread newspaper accounts of my kerosene experiments in the Catskill Mountains in 1892, to become more or less identified with many practical experiments in the destruction of mosquitoes from that time on.

Critical Commentary and Paraphrase, Vol. 1 of 6 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Critical Commentary and Paraphrase, Vol. 1 of 6: On the Old and New Testament and the Apocrypha Having been persuaded to put together some scattered notes, which I long ago made upon several places of Holy Scripture, I began the last year to consider some texts in the Book of Genesis. Where I soon found there would be a necessity of making an entire commentary, upon a good part of it: and therefore I resolved to go through the whole, in the same manner as I had done the three first chapters. After I had finished the better half of my work, I was informed that Mons. le Clere had published a Critical Commentary upon the same Book: but whether I have concurred in any thing with him, or contradicted him, I am not able to say; having wanted leisure to peruse his work, by reason of the public business, which came upon me in the end of the year: when I likewise understood, that a very learned friend and brother had put into the press. Annotations upon all the five books of Moses. But by communicating some of our papers to each other, we found there would be no reason that either of us should lay aside our design; but go on, in our several ways, to make the Scriptures better understood, by all sorts of persons: for all helps are little enough in this age; which seems to take pleasure in being ignorant of the most important truths. In which we are so particularly instructed by Moses, as by no other author, nor by all the authors that are, or have been known to be, extant in the world. For to him we owe the knowledge of the beginning of the world; of the first parents of mankind; the inventors of arts; the original of nations; the founders of kingdoms and empires; the institution of laws; the fountain of religious rites; yea, of all the ancient mythology; and, which is most considerable, the means of propagating that sense of God and of religion, which mankind brought into the world with them; and how it came to be corrupted. There have been those who have taken the liberty to say, that it is impossible to give any tolerable account of the creation of the world, in six days; of the situation of Paradise; the fall of our first parents, by the seduction of a serpent, &c. But I hope I have made it appear, there is no ground for such presumptuous words: but very good reason to believe every thing that Moses hath related: without Vol. I. forsaking the literal sense, and betaking ourselves to, I know not what, allegorical interpretations. Particularly, I find the truth of what I have noted concerning Paradise very much confirmed by a learned and judicious discourse of Mons. Huetius ;which I did not meet withal till I had made an end of these Commentaries: but then took a review of what I had written, and found cause to correct what 1 had noted out of Mr. Carver, concerning the spring of Tigris and Euphrates. I might also have given a clearer account of the deluge, if I had observed some things which are come to my notice since these papers went to the press: but I hope I have said enough to evince that it is not so incredible, as some have pretended. For, having made the largest concessions concerning the height of the highest mountains, which, according to the old opinion, I have allowed may be thirty miles high. Gen. vii. 19. (whereas if, instead of thirty, I had said not above three perpendicular, I had had the best of the modern philosophers to defend me), it appears there might be water enough to cover the loftiest of them; as Moses hath related. Whose account of the families by whom the earth was peopled after the flood, is so surprisingly agreeable to all the records that remain in any language, of the several nations of the earth; that it carries with it an uncontrollable evidence of his sincerity and truth, as well as of his admirable universal knowledge. For, as there is no writer that hath given us an account of so many n

The year is 2028. Two doctors from Kalamazoo, Michigan, husband and wife are caught up in an unimaginable holocaust engulfing the world---the Nazi Third Reich revived and ruled by the Fuehrer on a planetary scale. For years Ethan and Elizabeth had sensed that these troubles were coming and had done all they could to prepare, storing guns and ammo, food and clothing, medicines, survival gear of all kinds in a cave in the Big Horn Mountains on the slopes of Cloud Peak in Wyoming. Both of them pilots, they had purchased an airplane, believing they would escape in it together and fly to Cloud Peak. But they had to separate that hot, humid August night when they made their grand get-away. Is this the time predicted by the Hebrew prophets? Is this the time predicted by the New Testament apostles? Is this the Apocalypse? Is this how it will look when it happens? And how would you handle things if you found yourself and your loved ones also caught up in a tragedy of this magnitude? How would I handle it? These are difficult questions to ask and even more difficult, perhaps, to answer. Truth be told, there are no easy answers. Come and see what happened to Ethan and Elizabeth, the two doctors from Kalamazoo in the year 2028 and beyond. Come and live through it with them, come and suffer with them, weep with them, be joyful with them, be sad, be weary, be hopeful, be glad and thankful with them; come and lose everything with them, come and triumph with them. Come and see... Frank Willard is my pen name for CLOUD PEAK, my first venture into the suspense-thriller genre. And what better scenario could there be for this genre than the end of the world as we know it? Admittedly, I had always wanted to address the subject of the Apocalypse and finally I have via this novel and its sequel which I hope to begin soon. Perhaps there will be sequels after sequels, the theme of the Apocalypse being vast and endless and the possibilities for more suspense-thrillers being vast and endless, as well. For most of my life I have been a student of history; and I have been an observer of what some would call megatrends, the forces inexorably shaping human events, molding them and morphing them in a thousand times a thousand ways until, perhaps, we see them ever more clearly with the passage of time. This life of observation, study, and research has molded me; it has made me who I am, in addition to the other normal experiences of life, the things we all enjoy, endure, relish, disdain, like, dislike, and love and hate--these things, the good and the bad, come with our existence in this world. But there is another side to it, it seems to me. It seems there must be something even greater than megatrends, and greater than this earthly life of positives and negatives, there has to be. One day there must be a final showdown with evil and a final resolution to humanity's collective problems as ominous as that sounds. Perhaps the Apocalypse is ultimately necessary. Frank Willard lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan with his wife who is a teacher. Together they have a blended family of five children and their mates.

Granite and Grit FRANCES LINCOLN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

It is not as widely known as it should be that Britain has the most varied geology of any country in the world. This book is a celebration in words and pictures of what its mountains are made of, and how they got there. This in turn determines what they're like to climb, scramble on, or walk over. Why is Skiddaw slate so slippery? How do tors form? Why is gritstone so difficult? Why is Lakeland so picturesque, and the granite lands so grim and forbidding? Geology is destiny, whether it's the rubbishy nature of gullies and screes, the sculpting of valleys by ice or the landslip weirdness of Quiraing on the Isle of Skye. British mountains contain many interesting and different ingredients: gneiss and granite and gabbro; limestone and sandstone; schist and slate; the product and the debris of tectonic shifts, volcanoes, earthquakes and glaciers over many millennia. This book explains all this to the layman, from an expert but personal perspective, and will add immeasurably to the fun and satisfaction to be gained from any day in the hills.

Excerpt from God Returns to the Vuelta Abajo: A Tale of the Cuban Vega IT was the latter part of Augus planters of Old Horseshoe, in Vuelta Abajo, were making seed beds. At the Sumidero, old Bernardo's vega, the men were down in the tumba, or clearing, some of them turn ing up long' narrow beds in the mellow soil, and others burning off more land in preparation. The girl, Paula, coming: out of the palm-thatched cottage on the'hill above'witha a tin of coffee for the workers, inhaled the pungent odor of smoke with delight. It meant planting time, and that is always the Spring of hope to~far,m dwell ers. One forgets that it frequently pleases Heaven to send failure, and one remembers the happy years, the years of full harvest. Paula's father; Bernardo, was the wisest man in the world; so, if any money were made, he was sure to have his share.

She would be very proud, of course, butat least she would not put on all the airs Rosita did with her bridal hat. Rosita was absurd - and married to such a homely man! Eandres was gaunt' and hook-nosed, with stooped shoulders that made even his wedding suit look queer. And Felicia engaged to poor cross-eyed Juanito! How could they do it?of cou'rse Mamita had told Paula that love is blind to such imperfections, that love beau tifies. But Paula did not care to experiment with these miracles. She paused for a moment under, the ceiba tree and whispered a prayer to San Antonio to send her a handsome husband. Forgetful Of the tin of cooling coffee, she looked out over the scene of tr0pic loveliness, dream ing.

32 Yolks Random House Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Hailed by Anthony Bourdain as "heartbreaking, horrifying, poignant, and inspiring," 32 Yolks is the brave and affecting coming-of-age story about the making of a French chef, from the culinary icon behind the renowned New York City restaurant Le Bernardin. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR In an industry where celebrity chefs are known as much for their salty talk and quick tempers as their food, Eric Ripert stands out. The winner of four James Beard Awards, co-owner and chef of a world-renowned restaurant, and recipient of countless Michelin stars, Ripert embodies elegance and culinary perfection. But before the accolades, before he even knew how to make a proper hollandaise sauce, Eric Ripert was a lonely young boy in the south of France whose life was falling apart. Ripert's parents divorced when he was six, separating him from the father he idolized and replacing him with a cold, bullying stepfather who insisted that Ripert be sent away to boarding school. A few years later, Ripert's father died on a hiking trip. Through these tough times, the one thing that gave Ripert comfort was food. Told that boys had no place in the kitchen, Ripert would instead watch from the doorway as his mother rolled couscous by hand or his grandmother pressed out the buttery dough for the treat he loved above all others, tarte aux pommes . When an eccentric local chef took him under his wing, an eleven-year-old Ripert realized that food was more than just an escape: It was his calling. That passion would carry him through the drudgery of culinary school and into the high-pressure world of Paris's most elite restaurants, where Ripert discovered that learning to cook was the easy part-surviving the line was the battle. Taking us from Eric Ripert's childhood in the south of France and the mountains of Andorra into the demanding kitchens of such legendary Parisian chefs as Joël Robuchon and Dominique Bouchet, until, at the age of twenty-four, Ripert made his way to the United States, 32 Yolks is the tender and richly told story of how one of our greatest living chefs found himself-and his home-in the kitchen. Praise for Eric Ripert's 32 Yolks "Passionate, poetical . . . What makes 32 Yolks compelling is the honesty and laudable humility Ripert brings to the telling." - Chicago Tribune "With a vulnerability and honesty that is breathtaking . . . Ripert takes us into the mind of a boy with thoughts so sweet they will cause you to weep. He also lets us into the mind of the man he is today, revealing all the golden cracks and chips that made him more valuable to those around him." - The Wall Street Journal "Eric Ripert makes magic with 32 Yolks ." - Vanity Fair " 32 Yolks may not be what you'd expect from a charming, Emmy-winning cooking show host and cookbook author. In the book, there are, of course, scenes of elaborate meals both eaten and prepared. . . . But Ripert's story is, for the most part, one of profound loss." - Los Angeles Times "This book demonstrates just how amazing Eric's life has been both inside and outside of the kitchen. It makes total sense now to see him become one of the greatest chefs in the world today. This is a portrait of a chef as a young man." -David Chang

Bellefleur Ecco Pr

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A wealthy and notorious clan, the Bellefleurs live in a region not unlike the Adirondacks, in an enormous mansion on the shores of mythic Lake Noir. They own vast lands and profitable businesses, they employ their neighbors, and they influence the government. A prolific and eccentric group, they include several millionaires; a mass murderer; a spiritual seeker who climbs into the mountains looking for God; a wealthy noctambulist who dies of a chicken scratch. This is the saga of the weird, sometimes immensely rich Bellefleur family over several generations, a story focused mainly on Gideon Bellefleur and his power-mad, somewhat psychic, very beautiful wife Leah, their three children (one of them extremely psychic) and the servants and relatives, living and dead, who inhabit the castle and its environs. It's a story of the world's changeableness, of time and eternity, space and soul, pride and physicality versus love. Bellefleur is a medieval allegory of caritas versus cupiditas, love and selflessness versus pride and selfishness. The central symbol of the novel is change, baffling complexity, mystery. Written with a voluptuousness and immediacy unusual even for Oates, Bellefleur is widely regarded as one of her masterworks. As the incomparable John Gardner wrote in his contemporaneous review, "By one two-page thunderstorm she makes the rest of us novelists wonder why we left the farm. How strange the play of light and shadow in her graveyards! How splendid the Bellefleurs' decaying mansion! How convincing and individual the characters are--and so many of them! ... We're forced to ask again how anyone can possibly write such books, such absolutely convincing scenes, rousing in us, again and again, the familiar Oates effect, the point of all her art: joyful terror gradually ebbing toward wonder."

Georgia O'keeffe and Her Houses Abrams

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Georgia O'Keeffe spent almost 40 years of her life in the American Southwest. Her two houses in New Mexico; at Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu and the landscapes around them became essential elements in her paintings. The mountains and arroyos, the skulls and the Jimson weeds, a ladder against a wall, a door; all transformed by her genius into a quintessentially American art. Astonishingly, the history of these houses has never before been written. In this volume, Barbara Buhler Lynes and Agapita Judy Lopez create a vibrant picture of O'Keeffe at home. Drawing on O'Keeffe's correspondence, Lynes and Lopez set forth their fascinating story. An essay by architect Beverly Spears describes the distinctive characteristics of adobe architecture and its construction, and the many individuals involved with the house are identified. An appendix provides valuable information about the materials used in resorting the Abiquiu house. Photographs made especially for this book show the houses as they are today, plus dozens of photographs made by major photographers during her life show her living in the houses. Photographs of her painting and specific architectural components of the Abiquiu house are also included. These photographs and their accompanying texts offer for the first time a compelling picture of O'Keeffe's life in New Mexico, how each house satisfied different aspects of the artist's personal and professional needs and how O'Keeffe gradually transformed these Spanish Pueblo Revival style houses to reflect her modernist aesthetic.
