书籍英文名: I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban 

书籍作者:Malala Yousafzai & Christina Lamb

书籍简介:I come from a country which was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday. When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday 9 October 2012, she almost paid the ultimate price. Shot in the head at point blank range while riding the bus home from school, 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 ever nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, and of Malala’s parents’ fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons. It will make you believe in the power of one person’s voice to inspire change in the world. Winner of Magic FM Non-fiction Book of the Year at the Specsavers National Book Awards 2013Amazon.com ReviewA Look Inside I Am Malala*Girls attending Malala’s school in Pakistan.*The Headmistress of Malala’s school.*The seat that Malala sat in.*A beautiful view of the Swat valley, where Malala is from.ReviewMalala’s evocation of place, beautifully and lovingly described, and her paean to her father with his own passion for education, are fascinating. But so is her toughness. She describes seeing a young girl selling oranges, clearly unable to read or write: “I took a photo of her and vowed I would do everything in my power to help educate girls just like her. This was the war I was going to fight.” This remarkable book is part memoir, part manifesto. I feel enriched from having read it. I also feel humbled. Our obsession with school performance is suddenly marginalised by a story in which education, quite literally, proves a matter of life and death. TES Malala’s voice has the purity, but also the rigidity, of the principled. Whether she is being a competitive teenager and keeping track of who she beat in exams (and by how much) or writing about the blog for the BBC that catapulted her on to the international stage … or talking about Pakistan’s politicians (“useless”), Malala is passionate and intense. Her faith and her duty to the cause of girls’ education is unquestionable, her adoration for her father – her role model and comrade in arms – is moving and her pain at the violence carried out in the name of Islam is palpable. — Fatima Bhutto Guardian [C:\Users\Microsoft\Documents\Calibre Library]
