Book excerpt: WINNER of the PACEM IN TERRIS PEACE AND FREEDOM AWARD! The Kurdish activist who became a global icon! A powerful portrayal of a little school girl who defies Saddam Hussein's regime, survives Anfal Genocide and goes on to become an award-winning champion for human rights. By combining crisp prose with utterly enthralling storytelling, Widad pulls back the curtain to reveal in vivid detail and with unflinching honesty the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood in Kurdistan region where she was doomed to persecution, to her years as a university student undertaking the grueling task of chronicling crimes against humanity when she was just 17 years old, to her phenomenal resilience in exile. The Daughter of Kurdland takes the reader on an intimate journey to uncover deep truths that are valid in any age but especially so in our present context. Sparkling with wit and wisdom, this book poses universal questions: Should we always do what others tell us to do? How important is it to defy norms? How much of ourselves should we be willing to compromise for the sake of others? And how much should we be prepared to pay? A profile in courage, Widad is today an international icon for peace and women empowerment, and is the youngest winner of the Pacem in Terris Peace and Freedom Award, ranked among world-renowned figures like John F. Kennedy, Mother Teresa, Desmond Tutu and Dalai Lama. A testament to the power of human endurance, The Daughter of Kurdland will inspire and surprise men and women alike.

Book excerpt: With Nothing Remains Hidden, Dr. Widad Akreyi, a multiple award-winner in the U.S. and Europe, brings to a triumphant close her matchless, exceedingly clever tetralogy, The Viking's Kurdish Love. In Scandinavia, Ivar is losing touch with reality after years of captivity. Aviard is tasked with securing his release. Successful at last, the French Abbot puts him on a boat that takes Ivar to Gotland, where he falls into a romance with Alfhild and meets Olaf Haraldsson, the to-be King of all Norway. Next he journeys to Jerusalem, then on to yet another part of the world that is new to him. But no matter where he goes, fear for his wife, Dr. Vesta, torments him unceasingly. In Kurdland, Vesta's life is increasingly swirling out of control. Royal assassinations. Displaced sons and relatives. Rumors of Ivar's death. A sick mother. Marriage proposals. Stressed friends. Once-peaceful, the Kurdishkingdom is riven by famine and turmoil. Enduring all that is one thing, but erasing her love for Ivar is another. Fate brought them together. Its cruel hand tore them apart. Will they ever reunite? Entirely fresh and unpredictable at times, utterly human and hilarious at others, Nothing Remains Hidden is a sparkling gem of a read, complete with treasure, secrets, adventure and, of course, unrelenting love. This book can be read as a standalone.

Book The Al Jazeera Effect

Download or read book The Al Jazeera Effect written by Philip Seib and published by Potomac Books, Inc.. This book was released on 2008-09-30 with total page 241 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The battle for hearts and minds in the Middle East is being fought not on the streets of Baghdad, but on the newscasts and talk shows of Al Jazeera. The future of China is being shaped not by Communist Party bureaucrats, but by bloggers working quietly in cyber cafes. The next attacks by al Qaeda will emerge not from Osama bin Laden's cave, but from cells around the world connected by the Internet. In these and many other instances, traditional ways of reshaping global politics have been superseded by the influence of new media—satellite television, the Internet, and other high-tech tools. What is involved is more than a refinement of established practices. We are seeing a comprehensive reconnecting of the global village and a reshaping of how the world works. Al Jazeera is a paradigm of new media's influence. Ten years ago, there was much talk about “the CNN effect,” the theory that news coverage—especially gripping visual storytelling—was influencing foreign policy throughout the world. Today, “the Al Jazeera effect” takes that a significant step further. The concept encompasses the use of new media as tools in every aspect of global affairs, ranging from democratization to terrorism, and including the concept of “virtual states.” “The media” are no longer just the media. They have a larger popular base than ever before and, as a result, have unprecedented impact on international politics. The media can be tools of conflict and instruments of peace; they can make traditional borders irrelevant and unify peoples scattered across the globe. This phenomenon, the Al Jazeera effect, is reshaping the world.

Book Handbook of Pre Modern Nordic Memory Studies

Download or read book Handbook of Pre Modern Nordic Memory Studies written by Jürg Glauser and published by Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG. This book was released on 2018-11-19 with total page 1479 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In recent years, the field of Memory Studies has emerged as a key approach in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and has increasingly shown its ability to open new windows on Nordic Studies as well. The entries in this book document the work-to-date of this approach on the pre-modern Nordic world (mainly the Viking Age and the Middle Ages, but including as well both earlier and later periods). Given that Memory Studies is an ever expanding critical strategy, the approximately eighty contributors in this volume also discuss the potential for future research in this area. Topics covered range from texts to performance to visual and other aspects of material culture, all approached from within an interdisciplinary framework. International specialists, coming from such relevant fields as archaeology, mythology, history of religion, folklore, history, law, art, literature, philology, language, and mediality, offer assessments on the relevance of Memory Studies to their disciplines and show it at work in case studies. Finally, this handbook demonstrates the various levels of culture where memory had a critical impact in the pre-modern North and how deeply embedded the role of memory is in the material itself.
