|As many of us become parents at a later stage, when our adult lives are well established, the arrival of a baby brings an unpredictability that can be hard to cope with. Those who are used to managing their time in the workplace can be tempted to try to manage their infant in the same way. So-called "controlled crying" has been recommended by many recent childcare guides, but parents should be aware of the high cost of such methods to their baby. In The Essential First Year Penelope Leach shows parents how they can reach a harmonious balance between their baby s needs and their own. While babies and their needs have not changed, our lifestyles have, and Penelope Leach has written the perfect manual for busy 21st century parents, which spans from pregnancy to the child s first birthday. The book is a gentle, but timely reminder that the fundamental purpose of having children is to share happiness. The happier a baby is, the more parents will enjoy being with him or her, being responsive to one s baby does not mean that it has to be at personal expense - the happiness of parents and baby is inextricably intertwined. The Essential First Year is not just full of sensible, practical advice, it is backed by more than ten years of new research into infant development, especially in brain growth, which now confirms, for instance, just how much fathers matter to their infant s progress, how girls and boys brains are different at birth (and develop|
differently) and how helping a baby to be calm, contented, amused, and interested leads to optimum development of body and brain. Using such information, Penelope Leach shows parents how to deal with problems as well as how to prevent them. Every parent wants to do the best for their baby and for the child that the baby will become. The Essential First Year gives parents the knowledge and the tools to nurture and care for every aspect of their infant s life - to meet the baby s physical needs, to stimulate their intellectual development and ensure their emotional well-being - and most importantly, The Essential First Year helps parents to simply enjoy being parents.

The 1950s Home
Shire Publications nezistené
Cena: 3.20 €
Jazyk: anglicky ISBN - 978-0-74780-711-7, (stav A), brož.
|The 1950s home presented an exciting new way of living for the generation that moved out of the suburbs. Young couples who had previously rented accommodation in urban centres found themselves able to afford new-build homes with hot running water, an indoor bathroom and aerials for the wireless already installed. Some four million houses were erected, mostly in cosy semi-detached styles that harked back to traditional cottage architecture. The design elite rejected this Stockbroker Tudor look and opted instead for brave, flat-roofed modernist villas. This book introduces the homes that people fell in love with in the 1930s, and the fixtures and fittings that went in them. Packed with illustrations and informative chapters on architectural styles, gardens, furnishings and technology in the home, this book is an ideal introductory guide to the houses of the period.|

What is Sufism?
Mandala Book 1988
Cena: 1.55 €
Jazyk: anglicky ISBN - 0-04-297039-3, (stav A), brož.
|Martin Lings provides an excellent and authoritative introduction to the mystical movement of the Sufis based on his lifelong interest in Islamic culture. His explanation derives from a profound understanding of Sufism, and extends to many aspects which are usually neglected. His illuminating answer to What is Sufism? gives a taste of the very subject matter itself. What do Sufis believe? What do they aim at? What do they do? Unlike other writers on the subject, Martin Lings treats all the three questions with equal justice. He is thus able to give a wealth of answers to the main question What is Sufism? , each answer being from a different angle but all going to the root of the matter. A reviewer wrote Should the book appear in paperback, I would use it for undergraduate and graduate courses on Islamic civilization , and in fact What is Sufism? has become a set book in colleges and universities on both sides of the Atlantic. It is now accepted as the authoritative statement on the subject of Sufism and it has been translated into French, German, Italian and Spanish. It has also been published in Sarajevo in Bosnian, and is available in Braille.|

Slovakia - A European Story
Cena: 4.20 €
Jazyk: anglicky ISBN - 978-80-224-1522-4, (stav A), viaz.
|This book, unique of its kind, informs the reader about the history and development of Slovakia and the Slovaks. The chapters focus on Slovakia’s political history as a nation living under Hungarian rule, the formation of a common democratic state with the Czechs since 1918, the subsequent fall of that state, destroyed by successive dictatorships imposed from abroad, and its eventual restoration. Although the reader learns about political, economic and social developments under the Communist regime, the book focuses on the years following the Velvet Revolution of 1989 and the Velvet Divorce of 1993: the new role of the churches, the new orientation of foreign policy towards the West, and the transformation of the centrally planned economy into a market economy. In 1993, Slovakia became a sovereign state, in 2004, the Slovaks’ successful accomplishment of the difficult transition of economy, politics and society was rewarded with EU membership. This book is rich in detail and sources available to the Western reader for the first time. It is recommended to everybody interested in the history of the Slovaks in Europe and the European Union.|
