Fatima By Rachel Wang
eBook (PDF): $3.00
Fatima, just a few days shy of graduating from high school, is kidnapped by Mahmood in order to become his wife. Mahmood went to the same school as Fatima and loved her, but didn't have enough money... More > for a dowry or a big wedding. Instead, his family urged him to kidnap her. She was reluctant but finally agreed to marry him. Over time she realized that he really did love her and she started to love him in return. This book highlights a very real problem in several Central Asian countries: bride kidnapping. Sometimes it's because the couple don't have money for a big wedding but want to get married anyway. Sometimes it's because a guy's getting older and can't find a girl he likes to get married. Sometimes it's because the couple want to get married but their families don't approve. Either way, it's a problem I hope will become less and less over time.< Less

Kyrgyzstan Bishkek and Tien Shan By Stephen Platt
eBook (ePub): $6.38
(1 Ratings)
I went to Kyrgyzstan to investigate using remote sensing to map hazards. We ran a scenario planning game in Bishkek with Emergency personnel from Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Our host takes us to a... More > night club. It’s in a vast concert bunker. We toast each other unmercifully with vodka shots until encouraged onto the dance floor where we dance with a group of attractive young girls they call the ‘jet-set’. We went for a walk in the snow covered Tien Shan and walked up the Ala Acha gorge. We wanted to see snow leopard, but all we saw were the inquisitive marmots and circling eagles. Having forgotten my trainers I had only sandals to keep my feet warm. Bishkek is a city on the ancient ‘silk-road’ and there is a relaxed human feel to the place, with its tree-lined boulevards, Soviet ‘brave new world’ architecture and a huge statue of Lenin pointing towards a future long gone< Less
