The first of the defeated kites whirled out of control. They fell from the sky like shooting stars with brilliant, rippling tails, showering the neighbourhood. Amir and Hassan grow up together in Kabul. Amir in the beautiful house his father built, filled with marble, gold, tapestries and mosaics; Hassan in the modest mud hut in the servants' quarters. The two are inseparable, and when twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the local kite-fighting tournament, his loyal friend promises to help him. But neither boy can predict what will happen to Hassan that afternoon – as the kites soar over the city – and how it will change their lives forever.

Mit dem Einmarsch der sowjetischen Armee 1979 in Afghanistan begann ein zwei Jahrzehnte dauernder Krieg, der von der Welt ffentlichkeit weitgehend unbeachtet blieb. Als die Besatzer 1989 abzogen, brach in dem Land am Hindukusch ein B rgerkrieg aus, der f nf Jahre sp ter zum Aufstieg des Taliban-Regimes f hrte. Die Autorin macht es sich zur Aufgabe, die Stellung der afghanischen Frauen in den letzten 80 Jahren zu untersuchen. Unter den verschiedenen Herrschern sollen sowohl die politische Instrumentalisierung der Frauen als auch ihre tats chliche Position in der afghanischen Gesellschaft dargestellt werden. Besonderes Augenmerk wird dabei auf die Zeit der Taliban-Herrschaft gelegt, die durch ihre extreme, fundamentalistische Interpretation des Islam f r eine tragische Pr senz Afghanistans in den Medien sorgte. Ein Nachwort erg nzt die aktuellen Entwicklungen, die mit vielen Hoffnungen auf ein friedliches Zusammenleben verbunden sind, und setzt sich kritisch mit den ersten R ckschl gen auseinander.

I Am Malala. This is my story. Malala Yousafzai was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school. Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. In this Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir, which has been reimagined specifically for a younger audience and includes exclusive photos and material, we hear firsthand the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world -- and did. Malala's powerful story will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles and the possibility that one person -- one young person -- can inspire change in her community and beyond.

The nineteenth daughter of a local village leader in rural Afghanistan, Fawzia Koofi was left to die in the sun after birth by her mother. But she survived, and perseverance in the face of extreme hardship has defined her life ever since. Despite the abuse of her family, the exploitative Russian and Taliban regimes, the murders of her father, brother, and husband, and numerous attempts on her life, she rose to become the first Afghani woman Parliament speaker. Here, she shares her amazing story, punctuated by a series of poignant letters she wrote to her two daughters before each political trip—letters describing the future and freedoms she dreamed of for them and for all the women of Afghanistan. Koofi's New York Times bestseller, The Favored Daughter, movingly captures the political and cultural moment in Afghanistan, a country caught between the hope of progress and the bitter truth of history.

Ferien bei den Kannibalen. Skirennen in Afghanistan. Neandertaler-Diät in West Virginia. Zu Fuß durch Mexiko City. Marathon im Dschungel des Amazonas. Auf der Suche nach Bin Laden in Pakistan. Stelldichein mit Riesenechsen und Piraten. Flucht vor den stärksten Frauen der Welt. Christoph Zürcher lässt nichts aus. Er überschreitet Grenzen, dass jedem Mallorca-Touristen das Blut in den Adern gefriert. Ganz nach dem Motto: "Probleme lassen sich zuweilen auch dadurch lösen, dass man sich noch grössere Probleme aufhalst." Dabei ist der Autor ein "Don Quijote der Moderne", der schnell an die Grenzen seiner mentalen und körperlichen Möglichkeiten gelangt. Bei all diesen Dramen leidet der Leser qualvoll mit und stellt immer wieder fassungslos fest, dass man auch bei den härtesten Bewährungsproben über sich selbst lachen kann.

In Syria, culture has become a critical line of defence against tyranny. Syria Speaks is a celebration of a people determined to reclaim their dignity, freedom and self-expression. It showcases the work of over fifty artists and writers who are challenging the culture of violence in Syria. Their literature, poems and songs, cartoons, political posters and photographs document and interpret the momentous changes that have shifted the frame of reality so drastically in Syria. Moving and inspiring, Syria Speaks is testament to the courage, creativity and imagination of the Syrian people. ‘Syria Speaks is a remarkable achievement and a remarkable book – a wise, courageous, imaginative and beautiful response to all that is ugly in human behaviour. This extraordinary anthology gives a voice to those we may have forgotten, or whom we may classify as simply passive and silent victims. The people shown living, dreaming and speaking here are far more than victims and only silent if we refuse to hear them.’ A.L. Kennedy ‘An extraordinary collection, revealing a dynamic and exciting culture in painful transition – a culture where artists are really making a difference ... You need to read this book.’ Brian Eno
