Kabul in winter : life without peace in Afghanistan by Ann Jones( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Soon after the bombing of Kabul ceased, award-winning journalist and women's rights activist Ann Jones set out for the shattered city, determined to bring help where her country had brought destruction. Here is her trenchant report from inside a city struggling to rise from the ruins. Working among the multitude of impoverished war widows, retraining Kabul's long-silenced English teachers, and investigating the city's prison for women, Jones enters a large community of female outcasts: runaway child brides, pariah prostitutes, cast-off wives, victims of rape. In the streets and markets, she hears the Afghan view of the supposed benefits brought by the fall of the Taliban, and learns that regarding women as less than human is the norm, not the aberration of one conspicuously repressive regime. Jones confronts the ways in which Afghan education, culture, and politics have repeatedly been hijacked?by Communists, Islamic fundamentalists, and the Western free marketeers?always with disastrous results. And she reveals, through small events, the big disjunctions: between U.S promises and performance, between the new "democracy' and the still-entrenched warlords, between what's boasted of and what is. At once angry, profound, and starkly beautiful, Kabul in Winter brings alive the people and day-to-day life of a place whose future depends so much upon our own"--Publisher's description

Quand l'amour ne va plus : échapper à l'emprise d'un conjoint manipulateur by Ann Jones( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a beaucoup écrit sur la violence physique faite aux femmes, mais beaucoup moins sur les autres formes plus subtiles d'intimidation, en particulier sur les divers moyens de contrôle des hommes pour maintenir leur emprise sur leur conjointe. Pour celles qui veulent changer cette situation, ce livre arrive à point. Il a pour but d'aider les femmes à mieux comprendre la nature du comportement contrôlant (ou manipulateur), ses répercussions, de même que les façons de retrouver la maîtrise de sa vie. En annexe: guide-ressources québécois pour les femmes victimes de violence. [SDM]
Living with the enemy by Donna Ferrato( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ferrato rode over 6,000 hours with police around the country to get some of the photographs in Living With the Enemy. In the introduction to “Living With the Enemy”, Ferrato writes, “Much of the book was born out of frustration – first, because I felt powerless in the face of the violence I had seen, and, second, because for a long time no magazine would publish the pictures. It was only when I received the W. Eugene Smith Award in 1986 that magazine editors began to take the project seriously.” Ferrato felt the problem had been concealed from public view for too long and it was important to show as many aspects of the problem as she could. Some of the names in the book were changed, but all of the photographs and stories are real." - Text from artist's website (see link)
