Lacná kniha Volám sa Malala (-50%)


Keď Taliban prevzal vládu nad údolím Svát v Pakistane, jedno malé dievča sa odvážilo nahlas protestovať. Malala Jusafzaiová odmietla dať sa umlčať a bojovala za právo na vzdelanie pre seba aj ostatné dievčatá. V utorok 9. októbra 2012, keď mala pätnásť rokov, takmer za to zaplatila životom. Keď sa vracala autobusom zo školy domov, bojovníci Talibanu jej z tesnej blízkosti strelili do hlavy. Len málokto veril, že prežije. Malalino zázračné uzdravenie vo Veľkej Británii ju, naopak, nasmerovalo na jedinečnú cestu z odľahlého údolia v severnom Pakistane až do sály Organizácie Spojených národov v New Yorku. Ako šestnásťročná sa stala symbolom mierového protestu a najmladšou laureátkou na Nobelovu cenu za mier v histórii. Volám sa Malala je pozoruhodný príbeh rodiny trpiacej globálnym terorizmom. Príbehom otca, ktorý sa zastával svojej dcéry a založil školu pre dievčatá, aby tak ako muži mohli získať vzdelanie. Príbehom odvážnych rodičov, ktorí nesmierne milujú svoju dcéru v spoločnosti, čo si cení len synov. Je to príbeh o tom, ako hlas jednotlivca môže inšpirovať zmenu vo svete.

I am Malala


I come from a country which was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday. When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday 9 October 2012, she almost paid the ultimate price. Shot in the head at point blank range while riding the bus home from school, few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in Northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, and of Malala's parents' fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons. It will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.

Já jsem Malála


V jedenácti letech začala Malála, která se narodila do paštunské rodiny v pákistánském údolí Svát, psát pro BBC postřehy o tom, jak se žije pod hrozbou Tálibánu. Pod pseudonymem Gul Makaj popisovala, jak její rodina bojuje za vzdělávání dívek a jak tálibánská moc stále narůstá. Dívčina neohroženost však nezůstala bez trestu a v říjnu 2012 ji v autobuse střelil neznámý útočník do hlavy. Dívka jako zázrakem přežila a dál pokračuje ve svém boji. Na podporu svého úsilí založila fond Malala Fund a jako nejmladší nositelce jí byla udělena Nobelova cena míru.

Our Bodies, Their Battlefield


'A wake-up call ... These women's stories will make you weep, and then rage at the world's indifference.' Amal ClooneyFrom award-winning war reporter and co-author of I Am Malala, this is the first major account to address the scale of rape and sexual violence in modern conflict.Christina Lamb has worked in war and combat zones for over thirty years. In Our Bodies, Their Battlefield she gives voice to the women of conflicts, exposing how in today's warfare, rape is used by armies, terrorists and militias as a weapon to humiliate, oppress and carry out ethnic cleansing.Speaking to survivors first-hand, Lamb encounters the suffering and bravery of women in war and meets those fighting for justice. From Southeast Asia where 'comfort women' were enslaved by the Japanese during World War Two to the Rwandan genocide, when an estimated quarter of a million women were raped, to the Yazidi women and children of today who witnessed the mass murder of their families before being enslaved by ISIS. Along the way Lamb uncovers incredible stories of heroism and resistance, including the Bosnian women who have hunted down more than a hundred war criminals, the Aleppo beekeeper rescuing Yazidis and the Congolese doctor who has risked his life to treat more rape victims than anyone else on earth.Rape may be as old as war but it is a preventable crime. Bearing witness does not guarantee it won't happen again, but it can take away any excuse that the world simply didn't know.
