Warner Books, Incorporated. Good. 1976. Paperback. 044684800X Paperback, in Good condition, clean unmarked pages, light edge and shelf wear to glossy covers, pages tanning with age, nice looking book, ; A-283; Was this a dream, delirium-or a dire forecast of death? She saw herself dressed as a shepherdess, her flaxen hair piled high, waiting to meet a secret admirer. She stood at the foot of a staircase where two fountains splashed in the quiet of the night. Suddenly, from the garden's looming topiary shapes, a silken cord ringed her throat with death. The vision was so vivid, so real! And it lingered after her fever left her. ., Warner Books, Incorporated, 1976, Paperback. New. In Cairo in the 1940s, Leila Ahmed was raised by a generation of women who never dressed in the veils and headscarves their mothers and grandmothers had worn. To them, these coverings seemed irrelevant to both modern life and Islamic piety. Today, however, the majority of Muslim women throughout the Islamic world again wear the veil. Why, Ahmed asks, did this change take root so swiftly, and what does this shift mean for women, Islam, and the West? When she began her study, Ahmed assumed that the veil's return indicated a backward step for Muslim women worldwide. What she discovered, however, in the stories of British colonial officials, young Muslim feminists, Arab nationalists, pious Islamic daughters, American Muslim immigrants, violent jihadists, and peaceful Islamic activists, confounded her expectations. Ahmed observed that Islamism, with its commitments to activism in the service of the poor and in pursuit of social justice, is the strain of Islam most easily and naturally merging with western democracies' own tradition of activism in the cause of justice and social change. It is often Islamists, even more than secular Muslims, who are at the forefront of such contemporary activist struggles as civil rights and women's rights. Ahmed's surprising conclusions represent a near reversal of her thinking on this topic. Richly insightful, intricately drawn, and passionately argued, this absorbing story of the veil's resurgence, from Egypt through Saudi Arabia and into the West, suggests a dramatically new portrait of contemporary Islam., Hardback. New. Shortlisted as the Best Irish-Published Book of the Year at the 2013 Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards The members of the Irish Countrywomen's Association have a saying: 'Nil aon tintean mar do thintean fein' (there's no hearth like your own hearth) and when all is said and done what is more important than home and family? In their fantastic new book, hundreds of Irish women from the ICA share their practical tips, short-cuts, and precious first-hand experience on how to make a house a home. Whether you are looking for a tip to remove a stain from your dress, or a quiet word of wisdom on marital harmony; a how-to for the garden, or inspiration for a home-made gift: you know you can trust the ICA's advice to be practical, down-to-earth and achievable. Running a home is an important job. It demands the organisational skills of a project manager, the budgeting of an accountant, a myriad of cooking and cleaning skills - together with that little bit of magic which mothers always add. If you've ever wished you'd written down the clever tricks, special touches or pearls of wisdom that seemed to come naturally to your mother and grandmother, then don't reinvent the wheel: let the women of the ICA guide you through home management from beginning to end., New York, NY Harpercollins, 1994. Library Binding First Ed; First Printing indicated. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THE ILLUSTRATOR. First Ed; First Printing indicated. Near Fine in Near Fine DJ: Both book and DJ show only minute indications of use. Book shows binding square and secure; text clean. DJ unclipped; mylar-protected. Overall, very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. Unpaginated. Illustrated by Renee Flower. Hardback with DJ. Kuskin ( City Dog ; The Philharmonic Gets Dressed ) and first-time illustrator Flower seize on urban cacophony and turn it into a celebration of life itself in this dynamic picture book. A girl discovers a tin can in the street and holds it up to her ear to hear the secrets it keeps: the roar of city life tumbles out, like a genie escaping from a lamp. With a few well-chosen words ("Squalling Calling Crashing Rushing") the noise level intensifies, matched by comically frenetic pictures in which every object (house, car, garbage can) is personified and given a manic expression. All is frenzied movement and color. In this carnival-like setting cars honk and belch; ships smoke; people joke, laugh and yell; trains squeal. Even the words "reds and greens" are an invitation for mayhem. Noise here is equated with "Living Living Living"--and certainly the book is a whirling, swirling, crazy, colorful ode to sound. There is much child appeal here in both text and artwork, although parents may be praying for peace and quiet after successive readings. For Ages 4-8. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THE ILLUSTRATOR., Harpercollins, 1994., Kingfisher, 2001. Hardcover. New. Follows the everyday adventures of a girl in a pink and white striped dress who lives in a quiet English country village in the early twentieth century with her parents, her grandparents, and an aunt and uncle.SKU: MM-20081833; EAN: 9780753453322, Kingfisher, 2001, BERNARD SPILSBURYFAMOUS MURDER CASES OF THE GREAT PATHOLOGISTIn London during the fall of 1910, a tall, handsome, well-dressed young man took the stand for the prosecution in the trial of the American Dr. Crippen. The case had achieved wide-spread notoriety the previous summer when the use of a new invention, the "wireless," had aided in the capture of the ill-fated Crippen and his mistress who, attempting to escape England, were overtaken in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Accused of murdering his wife, the case against Crippen was largely circumstantial. The advanced condition of decay of the partial corpse found under the cool bin in his rented house raised doubt that, without an identifiable body, Dr. Crippen could be convicted.The well-dressed young man who took the stand in the Crippen trial on the morning of October 20th was making his first appearance in a capital case. His name was Bernard Spilsbury. His manner was detached, confident and utterly imperturbable. His analysis of a small patch of skin taken from the corpse under the cool bin pointed conclusively to the fact that the body was indeed that of Crippen's poisoned wife. Despite every attempt by the defense counsel to shake his testimony, Spilsbury remained quietly confident and unshakeably convinced of the rightness of his analysis. Crippen was convicted and Spilsbury had made a name.This book is used, with some dustjacket wear. The pages, otherwise, are in very good condition. There are no markings, writing or highlighting., Dorset Press, 1988
