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.

Edward Elgar and His World - 2861923085

Edward Elgar and His World Princeton University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Edward Elgar (1857-1934) is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating, important, and influential figures in the history of British music. He rose from humble beginnings and achieved fame with music that to this day is beloved by audiences in England, and his work has secured an enduring legacy worldwide. Leading scholars examine the composer's life in Edward Elgar and His World, presenting a comprehensive portrait of both the man and the age in which he lived. Elgar's achievement is remarkably varied and wide-ranging, from immensely popular works like the famous Pomp and Circumstance March no. 1 - a standard feature of American graduations - to sweeping masterpieces like his great oratorio "The Dream of Gerontius". The contributors explore Elgar's Catholicism, which put him at odds with the prejudices of Protestant Britain; his glorification of British colonialism; his populist tendencies; his inner life as an inspired autodidact; the aristocratic London drawing rooms where his reputation was made; the class prejudice with which he contended throughout his career; and his anguished reaction to World War I. Published in conjunction with the 2007 Bard Music Festival and the 150th anniversary of Elgar's birth, this elegant and thought-provoking volume illuminates the greatness of this accomplished English composer and brings vividly to life the rich panorama of Victorian and Edwardian Britain. The contributors are Byron Adams, Leon Botstein, Rachel Cowgill, Sophie Fuller, Daniel M. Grimley, Nalini Ghuman Gwynne, Deborah Heckert, Charles Edward McGuire, Matthew Riley, Alison I. Shiel, and Aidan J. Thomson.

Nauka / Językoznawstwo

I am presenting a book that shows various aspects of the functioning of the Muslim world, mainly in the modern day although a few texts also discuss history. Political, social, literary and cultural phenomena are analysed because, despite wars and conflicts, Muslims do create new positive values. Not all of them are involved in armed operations, political crisis and social strife. Writers create literature, artists devote themselves to art. Of course, everyone is influenced by the atmosphere of conflict and wars but human beings are always able to find a niche where they create a kind of alternative world, different from what goes on around them. Aware of the above, the authors of this book analyse the detailed issues and try to present syntheses of significant research problems. Thus, an extremely interesting panorama of issues concerning the Muslim world is shown here. I am convinced that these texts will not be boring to anyone. On the contrary, they will broaden the image of the world of Islam and possibly encourage Readers to learn more and take a deeper interest in this fascinating part of the world, without which the functioning of the modern civilisation would be difficult to imagine. prof. dr hab. Marek M. Dziekan Książka, do której lektury zapraszam, uwzględnia najrozmaitsze aspekty funkcjonowania świata muzułmańskiego, przede wszystkim współcześnie, choć kilka tekstów odnosi się do czasów historycznych. Analizowane są zjawiska polityczne i społeczne, literackie i kulturowe. Pomimo bowiem wojen i konfliktów muzułmanie tworzą nowe, cenne wartości. Nie wszyscy włączeni są i zaangażowani w działania zbrojne, kryzysy polityczne i społeczne waśnie. Pisarze tworzą literaturę, artyści oddają się sztuce. Oczywiście na wszystkich wpływa atmosfera konfliktów i wojen, ale człowiek zawsze potrafi znaleźć dla siebie niszę, w której będzie tworzył rodzaj alternatywnego świata, odmiennego od tego, co dzieje się wokół. Autorzy niniejszego tomu, mając świadomość powyższego, zarówno analizują kwestie szczegółowe, jak i próbują przedstawić syntezy niektórych istotnych problemów badawczych. W ten sposób otrzymujemy niezwykle interesującą panoramę zagadnień dotyczących świata muzułmańskiego. Dlatego też jestem przekonany, że lektura zawartych w książce tekstów nikogo nie znudzi, a wprost przeciwnie, poszerzy obraz świata islamu i być może skłoni do dalszych poszukiwań, a także głębszego zainteresowania się tym niezwykle interesującym obszarem świata, bez którego trudno sobie wyobrazić funkcjonowanie współczesnej cywilizacji. prof. dr hab.

History of Tom Jones Penguin Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Henry Fielding's picaresque tale of a young man's search for his place in the world, "The History of Tom Jones" is edited with notes and an introduction by Thomas Keymer and Alice Wakely in "Penguin Classics". A foundling of mysterious parentage brought up by Mr Allworthy on his country estate, Tom Jones is deeply in love with the seemingly unattainable Sophia Western, the beautiful daughter of the neighbouring squire - though he sometimes succumbs to the charms of the local girls. But when his amorous escapades earn the disapproval of his benefactor, Tom is banished to make his own fortune. Sophia, meanwhile, is determined to avoid an arranged marriage to Allworthy's scheming nephew and escapes from her rambunctious father to follow Tom to London. A vivid Hogarthian panorama of eighteenth century life, spiced with danger and intrigue, bawdy exuberance and good-natured authorial interjections, "Tom Jones" is one of the greatest and most ambitious comic novels in English literature. In his introduction Thomas Keymer discusses narrative techniques and themes, the context of eighteenth century fiction and satire, and the historical and political background of the Jacobite rebellion. This volume also includes a chronology, further reading, notes, a glossary and an appendix on Fielding's revisions. Henry Fielding (1707-1754) born at Sharpham Park, in Somerset, was a dramatist, novelist, political agitator and founder of London's first police force, the 'Bow Street Runners'. As a playwright he was a thorn in the side of Sir Robert Walpole's Whig government, who effectively legislated his retirement from the theatre with the Licensing Act of 1737. Undeterred, Fielding launched his career as a novelist in 1740 with "Shamela" (a parody of Samuel Richardson's "Pamela"), followed by "Joseph Andrews" (1741), an anticipation of his masterpiece, the comic novel "Tom Jones" (1749). If you enjoyed "The History of Tom Jones", you might like Henry Fielding's "The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman", also available in "Penguin Classics".

The Pursuit of Power draws on a lifetime of thinking about nineteenth-century Europe to create an extraordinarily rich, surprising and entertaining panorama of a continent undergoing drastic transformation. The book aims to reignite the sense of wonder that permeated this remarkable era, as rulers and ruled navigated overwhelming cultural, political and technological changes. It was a time where what was seen as modern with amazing speed appeared old-fashioned, where huge cities sprang up in a generation, new European countries were created and where, for the first time, humans could communicate almost instantly over thousands of miles. In the period bounded by the Battle of Waterloo and the outbreak of World War I, Europe dominated the rest of the world as never before or since: this book breaks new ground by showing how the continent shaped, and was shaped by, its interactions with other parts of the globe. Richard Evans explores fully the revolutions, empire-building and wars that marked the nineteenth century, but the book is about so much more, whether it is illness, serfdom, religion or philosophy. The Pursuit of Power is a work by a historian at the height of his powers: essential for anyone trying to understand Europe, then or now.

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - Richard Shenkman, amerykański obalacz historycznych mitów, legend i zwykłych kłamstw, autor kilku bestsellerowych publikacji podejmujących tę misję, w niniejszej książce odbywa brawurowy rajd przez dzieje powszechne. Spogląda na nie wprawdzie z perspektywy amerykańskiej, a więc skupia uwagę głównie na historii brytyjskiej, ale rozpiętość tematów i tak jest imponująca: od Troi po Hollywood. Te historyczne nieporozumienia przedstawione w stand-upowym stylu służą nie tylko rozrywce, lecz odświeżają naszą świadomość historyczną, rzucając niespodziewane światło na rzekomo oczywiste fakty. Mamy swoje zdanie o hollywoodzkich adaptacjach historycznych i wiemy, że Kleopatra raczej nie nosiła grzywki (wkładała perukę na ogoloną głowę), ale czy wiedzieliśmy, że umięśnieni greccy atleci na ekranie to też nieprawda? Greckie ciało było harmonijne, `gładkie`. Czy wiedzieliśmy, że Niemcy w kampanii wrześniowej użyli dwustu tysięcy koni, a armia francuska w 1940 roku miała techniczną przewagę nad niemiecką? Rewolucja naukowa XVII wieku tonęła w przesądach, a szkocki kilt jest całkiem świeżym wynalazkiem. Te migawki z panoramy nieprawd uczą krytycyzmu, zwłaszcza gdy na koniec okazuje się, że nawet kroniki filmowe, z pozoru ostoja samej prawdy, bywały mistyfikacją.

'A riveting account of the pre-First World War years . . . The Age of Decadence is an enormously impressive and enjoyable read.' Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times'A magnificent account of a less than magnificent epoch.' Jonathan Meades, Literary Review The folk-memory of Britain in the years before the Great War is of a powerful, contented, orderly and thriving country. She commanded a vast empire. She bestrode international commerce. Her citizens were living longer, profiting from civil liberties their grandparents only dreamt of, and enjoying an expanding range of comforts and pastimes. The mood of pride and self-confidence is familiar from Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance marches, newsreels of George V's coronation and the London's great Edwardian palaces.Yet things were very different below the surface. In The Age of Decadence Simon Heffer exposes the contradictions of late-Victorian and Edwardian Britain. He explains how, despite the nation's massive power, a mismanaged war against the Boers in South Africa created profound doubts about her imperial destiny. He shows how attempts to secure vital social reforms prompted the twentieth century's gravest constitutional crisis and coincided with the worst industrial unrest in British history. He describes how politicians who conceded the vote to millions more men disregarded women so utterly that female suffragists' public protest bordered on terrorism. He depicts a ruling class that fell prey to degeneracy and scandal. He analyses a national psyche that embraced the motor-car, the sensationalist press and the science fiction of H. G. Wells, but also the Arts and Crafts of William Morris and the nostalgia of A. E. Housman. And he concludes with the crisis that in the summer of 1914 threatened the existence of the United Kingdom - a looming civil war in Ireland.He lights up the era through vivid pen-portraits of the great men and women of the day - including Gladstone, Parnell, Asquith and Churchill, but also Mrs Pankhurst, Beatrice Webb, Baden-Powell, Wilde and Shaw - creating a richly detailed panorama of a great power that, through both accident and arrogance, was forced to face potentially fatal challenges.'A devastating critique of prewar Britain . . . disturbingly relevant to the world in which we live.' Gerard DeGroot, The Times'You won't put it down . . . A really riveting read.' Rana Mitter, BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking

'A beautiful, lyric hymn to the power of social unrest in American history...funny and harrowing, sweet and violent, innocent and experienced; it walks a dozen tightropes' Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See_____________________________________________1909. Spokane, Washington. The Dolan brothers are living by their wits, jumping freight trains and lining up for work at crooked job agencies. While sixteen-year-old Rye yearns for a steady job and a home, his dashing older brother Gig dreams of a better world, fighting alongside other union men for fair pay and decent treatment. But then Rye finds himself drawn to suffragette Elizabeth Gurley Flynn and her passion sweeps him into the world of protest and dirty business. As a storm starts brewing, questions of love, sacrifice, brotherhood and betrayal emerge, threatening to overwhelm them all. . .The Cold Millions is at once an intimate story and a stunning, kaleidoscopic portrait of a nation grappling with the chasm between rich and poor, dreams and reality. Set against the panoramic backdrop of an early 20th century America, Jess Walter offers a sensational tale that resonates powerfully with our own time.___________________________________________'A brilliantly multifaceted panorama of early 20th-century America...Walter is a writer whose work deserves a wide readership' Sunday Times'A work of irresistible characters, harrowing adventures and rip-roaring fun . . .
