By Karim El-Gawhary

ISBN-10: 3218007836

ISBN-13: 9783218007832

"Ein Tag Honig, ein Tag Zwiebeln" lautet ein arabisches Sprichwort, und diese Lebensphilosophie schimmert durch alle Geschichten, die Karim El-Gawhary in diesem Buch erzählt. Inmitten von Krieg und Krisen versuchen die Menschen, ein ganz normales Leben zu führen.
Viel Amüsantes ist dabei: Wie steuert guy schweißgebadet einen Neuwagen durch Kairo? Wie übt guy Gelassenheit angesichts der kafkaesken Arabesken aus 7000 Jahren ägyptischer Bürokratie?
Der Kampf ums tägliche Überleben: Sana', die "Scheichin der Gasse", streitet auf eigene Faust für Gerechtigkeit in einem Kairoer Slumviertel. Abu Aschraf verdient als Metallarbeiter forty Euro im Monat: Wie soll er zu Schulanfang seine Kinder einkleiden?
Auch ungewöhnliche Berichte aus den Kriegsgebieten enthält dieses Buch: Ein Besuch bei der Antiquitätenhändlerin Madame Pio weckt Erinnerungen an das alte, mondäne Bagdad. Und während im Südlibanon israelische Bomben fallen, kehren die Menschen in Beirut an die Uferpromenade zurück und rauchen ihre Wasserpfeifen.
So entsteht eine bunte arabische Alltagscollage, die uns unsere unmittelbaren und doch so fernen Nachbarn ein wenig näher bringt.

«Un hombre, al hacerse dandi, se convierte en un mueble de tocador, un maniquí extraordinariamente ingenioso, pero un ser pensante… ¡eso jamás!»
Honoré de Balzac

El Tratado de los angeles vida elegante, publicado por Honoré de Balzac en 1830 para inaugurar l. a. serie «Patología de los angeles vida social», corazón «estético» de l. a. Comedia Humana, constituye una de las piedras angulares del dandismo literario, prefigurando e inspirando los angeles obra de autores tan reputadamente elegantes como Barbey d’Aurevilly o Charles Baudelaire.

Rico en aforismos, anécdotas hilarantes, y cargado de un humor finísimo (el texto llega a incluir un encuentro ficticio con el príncipe de todos los dandis, el Bello Brummell, que tuvo que emigrar a Francia desde Inglaterra huyendo de sus fieros acreedores), este Tratado marca el camino que va desde el dandismo temprano de los angeles Regencia inglesa al fecundo decadentismo artístico e intelectual de l. a. Francia del XIX, y que desembocaría en l. a. bohemia y en último término en Oscar Wilde. Este capítulo esencial en l. a. historia del gusto estético en el vestir y en el comportarse nos llega, además, en magnifica traducción de Lluís Maria Todó.


"El Tratado de l. a. vida elegante, con su mezcla de reflexión y aforismo, es un texto que ofrece mucho más de lo que promete. Balzac juega en los angeles frontera entre los angeles filosofía y l. a. frivolité como sólo saben hacerlo algunos maestros".

The publication is a documented exploratory show off of the wealthy and different Mankon historico-socio-economico-political panorama which hitherto have been handed down orally from new release to new release. the writer hopes via this anthropological masterpiece, destiny Mankon generations and enthusiasts of this nation will shield their cultural background that's dealing with erosion and endangerment as a result of urbanization and the cosmopolis. The forebears of Mankon had had a imaginative and prescient of improvement and the overall strong of all humanity through making a small Mankon city which later grew to a contemporary urban with the teeming multitude converging to it from all nooks and crannies to benefit from the Mankon hospitality and a camaraderie ensemble. As either centripetal and centrifugal human forces come into play, there's absolute to be clashes of curiosity simply because man’s insatiable wishes are at asymmetrical variance with offers. those conflicts are specially within the sector of land acquisition; however the unlucky factor is that a lot of those land/boundary disputes emanate from inside Mankon and some yet tense instances come from a few Mankon neighbours. however the so much exasperating are the biased judgements taken by means of neighborhood directors, who of their warped-minded makes an attempt to stem clash, as an alternative fan and exacerbate the flames of discord.
it really is precise Mankon were an anti-colonial jingoist who fought opposed to Zintgraff and the Germans and defied the British; yet ahead of, she used sheer strength to oblige different small villages and clans right into a Mankon Confederation. yet that was once, with regards to anti-colonialism, to guard her sovereignty and when it comes to a Confederation, to represent a pretty good block to stem any exterior aggression. at least, those are issues of outdated and Mankon and her neighbours have each curiosity to keep up the peace within the quarter. we don't decide upon our neighbours, so as soon as neighbours, we needs to endeavour to cohabit peacefully.
via a systematic approach to information assortment in terms of interviews, photographing, transcribing and recalling, the writer has painstakingly projected the heritage of the Mankon humans and exterior family in order that electorate of Mankon and their neighbours comprehend who they're and what they're imagined to personal, as a way to stem clash within the area.
bankruptcy one among this e-book situates Mankon in Cameroon and explores her migrations and rulers as much as settled existence; no longer forgetting her contacts with colonizers. bankruptcy on its half is an ex-ray of Mankon social existence from beginning via marriage and loss of life to faith. bankruptcy 3 examines the Mankon political set-up and constitution, whereas bankruptcy 4 treats her economic climate.

This ebook is an exploratory and anthropological exhibit of the cultural history of the Mankon nation. the writer feels this vibrant and assorted tradition and historical past, which hitherto were passed down verbally from iteration to new release may possibly face endangerment if now not harnessed, documented and projected. this is often extra so as the cosmopolitan nature of Mankon village, the heart beat of Bamenda urban, erodes her tradition piecemeal.
The writer asserts Mankon, her neighbours and native management needs to uphold good-neighbourliness ethos so as to evade disruptive land/boundary disputes which can jeopardize the much-cherished peace within the area. He argues cogently, Cameroon’s management may well switch nomenclature to keep away from clash because the denomination ‘Bamenda’ bearing on the realm now occupied through Bamenda I, II, III and past, and inherited from the colonial management, truly capability the village and territory of Bamenda I.
