I am Malala : the girl who stood up for education and was shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai( Book )

63 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 5,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and 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 nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize. This is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons. This story will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world. -- Publisher's description

Farewell Kabul : from Afghanistan to a more dangerous world by Christina Lamb( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the award-winning co-author of 'I Am Malala', this book asks just how the might of NATO, with 48 countries and 140,000 troops on the ground, failed to defeat a group of religious students and farmers' How did it go so wrong' Twenty-seven years ago, Christina Lamb left Britain to become a journalist in Pakistan. She crossed the Hindu Kush into Afghanistan with mujaheddin fighting the Russians and fell unequivocally in love with this fierce country of pomegranates and war, a relationship which has dominated her adult life. Since 2001, Lamb has watched with incredulity as the West fought a war with its hands tied, committed too little too late, failed to understand local dynamics and turned a blind eye as their Taliban enemy was helped by their ally Pakistan. Farewell Kabul tells how success was turned into defeat in the longest war fought by the United States in its history and by Britain since the Hundred Years War. It has been a fiasco which has left Afghanistan still one of the poorest nations on earth, the Taliban undefeated, and nuclear armed Pakistan perhaps the most dangerous place on earth. With unparalleled access to all key decision-makers in Afghanistan, Pakistan, London and Washington, from heads of state and generals as well as soldiers on the ground, Farewell Kabul tells how this happened. In Afghanistan, Lamb has travelled far beyond Helmand - from the caves of Tora Bora in the south to the mountainous bad lands of Kunar in the east; from Herat, city of poets and minarets in the west, to the very poorest province of Samangan in the north. She went to GuantAnamo, met Taliban in Quetta, visited jihadi camps in Pakistan and saw bin Laden's house just after he was killed. Saddest of all, she met women who had been made role models by the West and had then been shot, raped or forced to flee the country. This deeply personal book not only shows the human cost of political failure but explains how short-sighted encouragement of jihadis to fight the Russians, followed by prosecution of ill-thoughtout wars, has resulted in the spread of terrorism throughout the Islamic world

Quand les talibans prirent le contrôle de la vallée du Swat, au Pakistan, une toute jeune fille, refusant l'ignorance à laquelle la condamnait le fanatisme, résolut de se battre pour continuer d'aller à l'école. Son courage faillit lui coûter la vie : en octobre 2012, à 15 ans, Malala Yousafzaï est grièvement blessée d'une balle dans la tête. Cet attentat censé la faire taire l'a au contraire confortée dans son engagement en faveur de l'éducation des filles dans son pays et des millions d'enfants non scolarisés de par le monde. Ce livre est le récit bouleversant d'une famille exilée à cause du terrorisme, de parents courageux qui, dans une société où les garçons sont rois, ont encouragé leur fille à s'instruire, à écrire, à dénoncer l'insoutenable et à exiger, pour toutes et tous, l'accès au savoir. Devenue un symbole mondial de lutte contre l'extrémisme religieux, Malala a reçu le prix Sakharov pour les droits de l'Homme décerné par le Parlement européen

Ihre Geschichte sorgte international für Erschütterung: Am 9. Oktober 2012 wird die junge Pakistanerin Malala Yousafzai auf ihrem Schulweg von Taliban-Kämpfern überfallen und brutal niedergeschossen.

The crossing : my journey to the shattered heart of Syria by Samar Yazbik( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samar Yazbek was well-known in her native Syria as a writer and a journalist but, in 2011, she fell foul of the Assad regime and was forced to flee. Since then, determined to bear witness to the suffering of her people, she revisited her homeland by squeezing through a hole in the fence on the Turkish border. Here she testifies to the appalling reality that is Syria today. From the first innocent demonstrations for democracy, through the beginnings of the Free Syrian Army, to the arrival of ISIS, she offers remarkable snapshots of soldiers, children, ordinary men and women simply trying to stay alive. Some of these stories are of hardship and brutality that is hard to bear, but she also gives testimony to touches of humanity along the way: how people live under the gaze of a sniper, how principled young men try to resist orders from their military superiors, how children cope in bunkers
