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.

The world in which we live is all that we have. We may find that there is much wrong with that world and we may look back to better times. This may cause us to dwell on what has been lost and this might make us angry and desperate for change. But we only have one life, and so instead of mourning what we have lost, we should instead celebrate what we still have. Antimodernism may be defined by what it is against, but the case for antimodernism can be stated positively. If modernism can be defined by its emphasis on change and transgression, antimodernism can be characterised as the love of home. It is this beguilingly simple idea that is at the heart of the antimodern condition. Home is a store of memory and a place of comfort and security, a refuge from the world and a place when we can be ourselves. This sense of home, which extends beyond merely the place in which we live, encloses a particular culture and a way of life. This book presents a positive description of the antimodern. It does this not by looking backwards, but by focusing on what we have here and now and how we can live in the only world we have. Peter King (b. 1960) is a social philosopher and writer focusing on antimodernism and conservatism. His recent work focuses on two areas: first, on what it means to be an antimodernist in the world today; and secondly, on the impact of conservative ideas on public policy. Peter is the author of 16 books, most recently Reaction: Against the Modern World (Imprint Academic, 2012); The Antimodern Condition: An Argument Against Progress (Ashgate, 2014); and Keeping Things Close: Essays on the Conservative Disposition. Peter is currently Reader in Social Thought at De Montfort University.

1500 California Place Names University of California Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is the new 'pocket' version of the classic "California Place Names", first published by California in 1949. Erwin G. Gudde's monumental work, which went through several editions during its author's lifetime, has now been released in an expanded and updated edition by William Bright. The abridged version, originally called "1000 California Place Names", has grown to a dynamic "1500 California Place Names" in Bright's hands. Those who have used and enjoyed "1000 California Place Names" through the decades will be glad to know that "1500 California Place Names" is not only bigger but better. This handbook focuses on two sorts of names: those that are well-known as destinations or geographical features of the state, such as La Jolla, Tahoe, and Alcatraz, and those that demand attention because of their problematic origins, whether Spanish like Bodega and Chamisal or Native American like Aguanga and Siskiyou. Names of the major Indian tribes of California are included, since some of them have been directly adapted as place names and others have been the source of a variety of names. Bright incorporates his own recent research and that of other linguists and local historians, giving us a much deeper appreciation of the tangled ancestry many California names embody. Featuring phonetic pronunciations for all the Golden State's tongue-twisting names, this is in effect a brand new book, indispensable to California residents and visitors alike.

You Deserve Better VANDENBURG CAPITAL MANAGEMENT

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

How can I work so that my clients receive daily attention that results in the best possible chance of securing their long-term needs and goals? How do I ensure I am the financial advisor people refer to as "accessible"? And how do I put the advise back in advising? These are just a few of the questions Todd VanDenburg posed to himself when he first started out over a decade ago in the financial services industry. Based on his own personal experience as an investor who, like many others, experienced some potentially unnecessary losses during the dot.com bubble, Todd decided not only to thoroughly study and learn the business of financial services, but to build his business by applying the same standards he would for his mother-were she sitting across the desk from him-for all of his clients. You Deserve Better provides an enlightening look at the type of relationship and level of service we all can and should expect from our financial advisor. The book shows that while becoming accustomed to feeling like a number may be acceptable in some facets of our modern-day lives, the one-size-fits-all policy does not fit when it comes to how we manage our money and plan our retirement. If ever there was a place and a time for individualized attention, it is in our financial advisor's office and it is now-particularly after having seen just how vulnerable our nest eggs can become due to situations completely out of our control. Some of the old adages regarding financial planning no longer hold true, and the experts and analysts will talk until their hair turns blue. You Deserve Better takes an energetic and emphatic look at just how valuable a financial advisor who is truly invested in your lifelong goals can be.

Excerpt from A Plea for Church Defence, or What Have the Dissenters to Offer as a Substitute for the Church Which They Seek to Destroy?: A Lecture Delivered in the Corn Exchange, Preston, February 10th, 1873 First, there is a large class of persons, who know nothing, or next to nothing, and care as little, about religion at all, but 'who have an average intelligence about other things. They seldom, or never, darken the door of any place of worship. Religion to them is a thing of no account whatever. But these people, while they may look with no favour on the Dissenting chapel, look with a jealous eye upon the Church. They have a sort of idea, however erroneous, that the Church is somehow eating up a good deal of the fat of the land, which, as they think, might go for another and better pu'rpose. Now these people, while not the first to mo've in the matter, will be ready enough to follow and join in the cry.

Evenings with a Reviewer, Vol. 2 of 2 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Evenings With a Reviewer, Vol. 2 of 2: Or a Free and Particular Examination of Mr. Macaulay's Article on Lord Bacon, in a Series of Dialogues So that while he had had more opportunities for rapid advancement than any other distinguished lawyer of his day, he had in fact risen more slowly, I believe, than any one of them. Now however, at last, he is going to rise rapidly. In the autumn of 1613 Sir Thomas Fleming, Chief Justice of the King's Bench, died; and Bacon, making a push, got Coke transferred to that place from the Common Pleas, the Attorney to Coke's place, and himself to the Attorney's. A. Making a push? Then that arrangement was brought about by him. B. Yes; and much against Coke's will, who is said to have acceded, not without tears; though it was an advance in dignity and accompanied with all marks of honour. I am not sure that it ought to rank as one of Bacon's best day's works; for I cannot think that Coke, with all his law, was well qualified for a judge in criminal causes. It is true that he was fearless and upright enough, but he was wanting (as it seems to me) not only in true impartiality, but also in the faculty of weighing moral evidence; being precipitate in taking first impressions, obstinate in sticking to them, credulous to all that favoured them, deaf to all that made against them; and apt to pronounce judgement before the case had been half heard. These however are sentiments in which few people will agree with me now and probably nobody would have agreed then. The whole Court of Common Pleas (down to the very clerks they say) wept with him when he left them; but it was only as we weep for our friends when they are going to a better place.

Eritrea at a Crossroads Lightning Source Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

I congratulate Andebrhan Welde Giorgis on his high quality and extremely informative book that has not only the merit to be an update on the political situation in Eritrea but also asks the pertinent questions on the future of his marvelous country. He does it with tact and success, based on his long experience as freedom fighter, as senior public servant, as Ambassador and his rich experience of Africa. Each country in Africa must be able to determine its own future. Freedom, responsibility, control over its destiny, and solidarity, are the key ideas of the new vision for international cooperation that will help ensure the sustainability of the development process. The urgent need to create a democratic government resonates throughout the book. Good governance, respect for human rights, principles of democracy, and rule of law are essential universal values underpinning it. Andebrhan is one of those men, visionaries, and open to dialogue, reform and change. Eritrea at a Crossroads is key to understanding the challenges facing Eritrea and Africa. It is an eye opener on a complex and little understood crisis that is festering in Africa and holding the continent back. The book provides a solid intellectual foundation to understanding the region and will give anyone who wants to build a better future for Africa a great starting point. I congratulate him on this most valuable book which finds its place among all the lovers of Africa. Louis Michel Member of European Parliament, European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid (2004-2009) and Foreign Minister of Belgium (1999-2004) Freedom fighter, scholar, central banker, diplomat, and now unhappy exile, no-one could be better placed than Andebrhan Welde Giorgis to trace Eritrea's distressing slide from triumph to tragedy. It's a harrowing story, but the author tells it comprehensively, objectively and lucidly in this excellent study. The future can be rescued, as Andebrhan makes clear, but only if the past is understood, and the present confronted -- by decent, concerned Eritreans, acting with the moral, political and economic support of the wider international community. May his voice be heard.

Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8: A Young Man's Voice from the Silence of Autism Random House Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From the author of the bestselling The Reason I Jump, an extraordinary self-portrait of life as a young adult with autism Naoki Higashida was only thirteen when he wrote The Reason I Jump, a revelatory account of autism from the inside by a nonverbal Japanese child, which became an international success. Now he shares his thoughts and experiences as a twenty-four-year-old man living each day with severe autism. In short, powerful chapters, Higashida explores school memories, family relationships, the exhilaration of travel, and the difficulties of speech. He also allows readers to experience profound moments we take for granted, like the thought-steps necessary for him to register that it's raining outside. Acutely aware of how strange his behavior can appear to others, he aims throughout to foster a better understanding of autism and to encourage society to see people with disabilities as people, not as problems. With an introduction by bestselling novelist David Mitchell, Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8 also includes a dreamlike short story Higashida wrote especially for this edition. Both moving and of practical use, this book opens a window into the mind of an inspiring young man who meets every challenge with tenacity and good humor. However often he falls down, he always gets back up. Praise for Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8 "[Naoki Higashida's] success as a writer now transcends his diagnosis. . . . His relative isolation--with words as his primary connection to the outside world--has allowed him to fully develop the powers of observation that are necessary for good writing, and he has developed rich, deep perspectives on ideas that many take for granted. . . . The diversity of Higashida's writing, in both subject and style, fits together like a jigsaw puzzle of life put in place with humor and thoughtfulness."--The Japan Times "Profound insights about what the struggle of living with autism is really like . . . Once again, the invitation to step inside Higashida's mind is irresistible."--London Evening Standard "Naoki Higashida's lyrical and heartfelt account of his condition is a gift to anyone involved with the same challenges. . . . Higashida shows a delicate regard for the difficulties his condition creates . . . and is adept at explaining his experiences in language that makes sense to neurotypicals."--The Guardian "Wise and witty, [Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8] offers a second insider's insight into the mysteries of non-verbal autism--but this time from the vantage point of a young adult. . . . Moving . . . Higashida's reflections are at times refreshingly hard-nosed [and] his self-awareness is uplifting."--Financial Times "[Naoki Higashida's] thoughtful, syntactically complex writing puts the lie to the already dubious characterization of such individuals as 'low-functioning.'"--Toronto Star

Evolution in a Toxic World Island Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

With BPA in baby bottles, mercury in fish, and lead in computer monitors, the world has become a toxic place. But as Emily Monosson demonstrates in her groundbreaking new book, it has always been toxic. When oxygen first developed in Earth's atmosphere, it threatened the very existence of life: now we literally can't live without it. According to Monosson, examining how life adapted to such early threats can teach us a great deal about today's (and tomorrow's) most dangerous contaminants. While the study of evolution has advanced many other sciences, from conservation biology to medicine, the field of toxicology has yet to embrace this critical approach. In "Evolution in a Toxic World", Monosson seeks to change that. She traces the development of life's defence systems - the mechanisms that transform, excrete, and stow away potentially harmful chemicals - from over three billion years ago to today. Beginning with our earliest ancestors' response to ultraviolet radiation, Monosson explores the evolution of chemical defences such as antioxidants, metal binding proteins, detoxification, and cell death. As we alter the world's chemistry, these defences often become overwhelmed faster than our bodies can adapt. But studying how our complex internal defence network currently operates, and how it came to be that way, may allow us to predict how it will react to novel and existing chemicals. This understanding could not only lead to better management and preventative measures, but possibly treatment of current diseases. Development of that knowledge starts with this pioneering book.
