Item Description: Arcade Publishing, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Soraya M. s husband, Ghorban-Ali, couldn t afford to marry another woman. Rather than returning Soraya s dowry, as custom required before taking a second wife, he plotted with four friends and a counterfeit mullah to dispose of her. Together, they accused Soraya of adultery. Her only crime was cooking for a friend s widowed husband. Exhausted by a lifetime of abuse and hardship, Soraya said nothing, and the makeshift tribunal took her silence as a confession of guilt. They sentenced her to death by stoning: a punishment prohibited by Islam but widely practiced. Day by daysometimes minute by minuteSahebjam deftly recounts these horrendous events, tracing Soraya s life with searing immediacy, from her arranged marriage and the births of her children to her husband s increasing cruelty and her horrifying execution, where, by tradition, her father, husband, and sons hurled the first stones. A stark look at the intersection between culture and justice, this is one woman s story, but it stands for the stories of thousands of women who sufferedand continue to sufferthe same fate. It is a story that must be told. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781611450255

Soraya M. s husband, Ghorban-Ali, couldn t afford to marry another woman. Rather than returning Soraya s dowry, as custom required before taking a second wife, he plotted with four friends and a counterfeit mullah to dispose of her. Together, they accused Soraya of adultery. Her only crime was cooking for a friend s widowed husband. Exhausted by a lifetime of abuse and hardship, Soraya said nothing, and the makeshift tribunal took her silence as a confession of guilt. They sentenced her to death by stoning: a punishment prohibited by Islam but widely practiced. Day by daysometimes minute by minuteSahebjam deftly recounts these horrendous events, tracing Soraya s life with searing immediacy, from her arranged marriage and the births of her children to her husband s increasing cruelty and her horrifying execution, where, by tradition, her father, husband, and sons hurled the first stones. A stark look at the intersection between culture and justice, this is one woman s story, but it stands for the stories of thousands of women who sufferedand continue to sufferthe same fate. It is a story that must be told. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781611450255

One can imagine the anger of the emir on reading it I To add to his ingratitude, the disloyal governor of Baalbek forbade the peasants of Libanus, who were the dependents of Fakhr Eddin to come into Bekaa, as usual, to gain their livelihood by cultivating lands, and he even went so far as to lay hands on the properties which Ali, the brother of his daughter-in-law, possessed near Kab-Elias. Hossein, animated by more noble sentiments, vainly interceded for the restoration of the lands to his brother-in-law. Fakhr Eddin, justly irritated, assembled his troops and came from Beyrout to Kab-Elias (1), where Hossein, his son-in-law, lived. The latter invited his father 1 One hour from Sehtora towards the S.

Item Description: Parsa Enterprises, LLC., United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 213 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.One of the more surprising demographic facts about Iran is the fact that 70 of the population is under 30 years of age. This simple statistic has molded Iran into an increasingly more modern society with a thriving and unpredictable student population. This population, who is often referred to as Iranian youth, has been strongly linked to the generation of reformist ideas surfacing in Iran. At 7:30 a.m. in Tehran the coercion of the security forces against the opposition had already escalated a point that was considered to be the most aggressive since the Presidential election. The Iranian civilians woke up to scenes in the street only fit for a movie. A city bus had been set on fire in the night and the smoldering wreckage only further illustrated the devastation that this country was experiencing. What seemed to be chaos at this point was only a small glimpse of the near future of the Iranian people. The citizens of Iran should brace themselves for the likelihood of more bloody altercations between the security forces and protesters on the streets of Tehran. By 10:25 a.m., the Iranian state television reported that 10 people were killed as the police and protesters clashed in the streets of Tehran in lieu of the protester s defiance to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Reports said there were at least another 100 protesters severely injured during the clashing. More demonstrators took to the streets of Tehran during the afternoon. Women, youth, students and members of the moderate clerical establishment took to the streets in the thousands chanting and wearing the bright green campaign colors of Moussavi and showing support for the Green Movement.

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. You want to be rich. Perhaps you plan to be very wealthy indeed. Who wouldn t? Talking about the pros and cons of being wealthy seems as one-sided as a boxing match between Warren Buffett and Muhammad Ali. However I ve been giving this some thought - inspired by my strange and unfounded fear of winning 56 million pounds in the lottery- and there are quite a few bad points. Don t get me wrong - it d be a nice problem to have. If you searched out the pros and cons of being wealthy as a sanity check before accepting a briefcase of cash, I say take the money! Later on you can come back and tell us how hard it is being rich. But let s start with the good points. The pros of being wealthy Unless you re very religious, contrarian, or you re visiting our planet ahead of the full-scale invasion from Mars, you ll know how great it is to have money. The esteemed rap poet Nas sums up the general picture as follows: Clothes that I buy, Ice that I wear, Clothes that I try, close your eyes Picture me rollin, sixes, money foldin Bitches honies that swollen to riches. Mr Nas is a bit weak in rhyming the clothes he s trying with those that he s buying, but then he doesn t need to try too hard - Nas knows we ve all dreamed of being rich. He just has to flick the switch. At the very least, being wealthy gets you: -Financial freedom -Holidays anywhere -A great home -Funding for your pastimes and passions -Good suits -Great health care -A swimming pool full of girls in bikinis -Gold teeth Feel free to substitute your own desires. Personally, I d like an island. The downsides of being wealthy When I said this article was about the pros and cons of being wealthy, I meant it: having a lot of money has drawbacks, especially if you get rich overnight. I ve met a fair few rich people over the years, mainly through work, and I ve also read widely on the subject, and I feel confident in listing these negatives. (For clarity, I m talking about being really rich - 10 million / $15 million net worth or more). Money doesn t make you happy After a surprisingly low point, more money doesn t make you happier. Rich people get depressed, just like the middle classes. True, there s no evidence that money actually makes you unhappy (although one rich man is giving it all away) but it could distract you from fixing your real problems. The end of your goals and ambitions You see this with children born into money, as well as people who built a company up for several decades and sold too late to start another. When you have the money, what next? The trick seems to be to find a substitute to your old goal of achieving financial security. That s why you can t walk far in Africa without tripping over a philanthropist. Being judged unfairly People are very critical of the wealthy, especially here in the UK. In the US entrepreneurs are celebrated, but newly rich Brits will find many people waiting for them to fall. I ve seen it in work - a self-made man or woman leaves the room, and someone says well, he was lucky or he s out of ideas or even what an asshole. Not nice, but it happens.

Dorothy, she said, I m going to get hold of that young American and fasten to him like a leech. He s got a broad back and only one valise. Don t move from this spot. She departed, bustling with energy and determination, and in five minutes returned with her victim. But Frederick Dayton did not feel like a victim. He felt as if he had known Mrs. Grandison all his life and had always liked her. She was a direct, unaffected person, from whom emanated an effect of well-being and common sense. Dorothy, she said, this is Mr. Dayton. I ve explained to him why we had to discharge Ben Ali, and he s volunteered to help us get these things on the train.

Item Description: Tarikh Publications, 2013. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. Mubarak Ali received a M.A. in history from Sindh University, Jamshoro in 1963. In 1972, he went to London, then Germany to pursue higher studies and in 1976, he attained a PhD (on the Mughal Period of India) at Ruhr University, Bochum, Germany. He later became head of the History Department at the University of Sindh. He was the Director of the Goethe Institute in Lahore until 1996. He is currently the editor of the quarterly journal Taarikh ("History") and has been widely interviewed by electronic and print media in India, Pakistan and the Middle East. In 1999, while speaking at a seminar in Mumbai organised by the NGO Khoj, Ali referred to fundamentalism's effects on historical scholarship in his country. He described how after 1965, ancient history was stopped being taught in Pakistan, and the mention of the Indus Valley Civilization was barred. The official rule stated that anything outside of the syllabus "is not part of our history". He further stated that the official historiography in Pakistan is committed to the two-nation theory. Questioning it can lead to ten years of imprisonment under the Pakistan Ideology Act of 1991.[2] Speaking at the "National Seminar on Rani Kot", he called for the reading and writing of history from a different angle, in which invaders should not be acclaimed as "great". He said that archaeological sites do have their own significance, referring to the discovery of Mohenjo-daro which reflected a great civilisation of the region. This discovery played a dominant role in the independence movement of the subcontinent, because until its discovery, people of this part of the world were not considered literate or civilised.[3] He has written a number of books and articles on Indo-Pakistani history, and has been widely acclaimed as an anti-establishment thinker and historian. He stated in an interview that "No authentic history has yet been written about Pakistan and its independence. There is a lot of confusion among the so-called pro-Establishment historians and educationists. Whatever has been written so far is distortion of history and entirely unbalanced."[4].
