  • MY LIFE AND STRUGGLE

    ?Bacha Khan?s message of the power of peaceful protest for liberty, equality and justice changed our culture and customs forever and inspires me every day in my activism for girls? education and women?s empowerment.?

    Malala Yousafzai, Youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate

    ?As a student activist, what struck me the most about working with Bacha Khan was the strength of his compassion and his disarming humility. He would insist on walking long distances even in old age to reach the marginalised to help them or to at least express solidarity with them. The publication of English translation of his Pakhto autobiography is coming out at a time when younger generations are rediscovering Bacha Khan?s life and struggle.?

    Afrasiab Khattak, Former Provincial President of Awami National Party, former senator, writer and analyst of regional affairs

    ?This compelling story is more relevant now than ever. Bacha Khan?s tireless struggle against oppression and division was non-violent and uncompromising, principled and creative. Readers will be enthralled and inspired.?

    Mukulika Banerjee, Author of The Pathan Unarmed, 2001

    ?The life story of a man of peace and non-violence, born amidst mayhem and conflict across the Sub-continent, still carries a powerful message in the turbulent times we live in. The autobiography of Bacha Khan in English, for the first time in a lucid translation from the original Pakhto by Imtiaz Ahmad Sahizada, is a landmark publication. The history of modern South Asia has been incomplete without a better understanding of how and why the fierce Pashtun tribes embraced the Gandhian ideology of non-violent defiance. My Life and Struggle introduces a new and younger generation to the tribulations of the Pashtuns.?

    Ahmed Rashid, Author of Pakistan on the Brink: The Future of America, Pakistan and Afghanistan, 2012

  • TERRA VIVA

    This book is a testament to the great work that Vandana has done for the food and ecological movements.
    -Carlo Petrini, Founder, Slow Food

    Vandana Shiva is the most brilliant woman I know; she is impressive, with a global knowledge of the environmental problems created, above all, by social disorders and the selfishness of short-term power.
    -Gilles-?ric S?ralini, molecular biologist and co-author of The Monsanto Papers

    Vandana Shiva?s brilliant, discerning mind, granite character, poetic soul, and her galvanising skills as a grassroots organiser have won her place in the pantheon of the most effective and beloved leaders of the global environmental movement.
    -Robert F. Kennedy Jr., environmental lawyer

    This beautifully-written memoir is a compelling narrative which should be read by everyone who loves land, life and the integrity of our precious Planet Earth.
    -Satish Kumar, Founder, Schumacher College

    Reading this book will open your mind to the causes of the deep problems we have been pushed into by the actions of a few, and give you hope and courage to reverse the downward spiral.
    -Hans R. Herren, Founder and President, Biovision Foundation

    Terra Viva is one of the most remarkable books I have ever read. It is an awe-inspiring tale of multiple struggles against multiple injustices against people and our environment? Vandana?s life story shows that she is one of our most extraordinary leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Dr Martin Luther King.
    -Andr? Leu, International Director, Regeneration International

    Terra Viva chronicles Vandana?s thoughts, knowledge, convictions, and a sustained commitment to movement-building and maintenance of life. Thank you, Vandana, for the generous offering of this testament, this living book, this sharing of your life.

  • SULTAN: A MEMOIR WASIM AKRAM

    The official autobiography of Wasim Akram, the Sultan of Swing, one of the greatest fast bowlers in the history of cricket. For twenty years, Wasim Akram let his cricket do the talking – with his electrifying left-arm pace, his explosive striking as a batsman, and his inspirational leadership. For another twenty years, he kept his own counsel about his cricketing days – full of drama, controversy and even mystery – in a country, Pakistan, that to outsiders is a constant enigma.

    Sultan tells the story of cricket’s greatest left-arm bowler, and one of its enduring survivors, who was chosen from the streets of Lahore and groomed by Imran Khan to become champion of the world – he was Man of the Match in the final of the 1992 World Cup which Pakistan won. Along the way were unforgettable rivalries with the legends of his time, from Viv Richards and Ian Botham to Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne. All of this against a backdrop of conspiracy and intrigue over ball tampering and match-fixing, about which Wasim finally sets the story straight.

    Sultan provides an unprecedented insight into the life – both on and off the field – of a cricketer who revolutionized the sport with his speed and swing, and a patriot buoyed and burdened by the expectations of one of the game’s most fanatical publics.

  • BEAUTIFUL THINGS

    A deeply moving memoir of addiction, loss, and survival. This is Hunter Biden’s story of tragedy and trauma, and his journey to overcome it all.

    ‘In his harrowing and compulsively readable memoir, Hunter Biden tells it all with a bravery that is both heartbreaking and quite gorgeous. He starts with a question: Where’s Hunter? The answer is he’s in this book, the good, the bad, and the beautiful.’ Stephen King

    When he was two years old, Hunter Biden was badly injured in a car accident that killed his mother and baby sister. In 2015, he suffered the devastating loss of his beloved big brother, Beau, who died of brain cancer at the age of 46. These hardships were compounded by the collapse of his marriage and a years-long battle with drug and alcohol addiction.

    In Beautiful Things, Hunter recounts his descent into substance abuse and his tortuous path to sobriety. The story ends with where Hunter is today-a sober married man with a new baby, finally able to appreciate the beautiful things in life.

  • LETTERS TO A YOUNG POET

    Letters to a Young Poet is a collection of letters written by the poet Rainer Maria Rilke to an aspiring poet Franz Xaver Kappus, a 19-year-old military cadet at Theresian Military Academy in Wiener Neustadt. Kappus wrote letters to Rilke to seek advice on his poetry. Even though Rilke avoided commenting on his work directly, he did give some general advice to him. Published in 1929, Letters to a Young Poet gives an insight about poetry, subtle observations required by a poet and the mysterious workings of the human heart. Rilke s advice to the young poet also reflects his sensitive observations of cruelty around him and his efforts to seek love, comfort, and truth in a complicated and treacherous world.

  • MBS: THE RISE TO POWER OF MOHAMMED BIN SALMAN

    Even in his youth as a prince among thousands of princes, Mohammed bin Salman nurtured sweeping ambitions. He wanted power – enough of it to reshape his hyper-conservative, insular Islamic kingdom.

    When his elderly father took the throne in 2015, MBS got his chance. As the hands-on-ruler, he made seismic changes, working doggedly to overhaul the kingdom’s economy, loosen its strict Islamic social codes and confront nearby enemies, especially Iran. His vision initially won fans at home and abroad as he convinced other nations that the moment had come to bet big on Saudi Arabia. Over time, however, the sheen of the visionary young reformer has tarnished, leaving many wondering whether MBS is actually an aspiring dictator whose lack of experience and rash decisions are destabilizing the world’s most volatile region.

    Based on years of reporting and hundreds of covert interviews, MBS provides new insights into Saudi Arabia’s catastrophic military intervention in Yemen, the bizarre detention of the Lebanese prime minister, the surprise arrest of hundreds of princes and businessmen, and the greatest scandal of the young prince’s rise: the brutal murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi state officials with links to MBS – a crime that shocked the world.

    A riveting portrait of a determined autocrat on the rise, MBS asks how one man’s actions and obsessions are shaking the Middle East.

  • BECOMING

    An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States

    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER – WATCH THE EMMY-NOMINATED NETFLIX ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY – OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK – NAACP IMAGE AWARD WINNER – ONE OF ESSENCE’S 50 MOST IMPACTFUL BLACK BOOKS OF THE PAST 50 YEARS

    In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America–the first African American to serve in that role–she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.

    In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her–from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it–in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations–and whose story inspires us to do the same.
