The hugely anticipated return to Garth Nix's New York Times bestselling Old Kingdom series, perfect for readers who love Philip Pullman. Lirael is no longer a shy Second Assistant Librarian. She is the Abhorsen-in-Waiting, with dead creatures to battle and Free Magic entities to bind. She's also a Remembrancer, and wielder of the Dark Mirror. When Lirael finds Nicholas Sayre lying unconscious after being attacked by a hideous Free Magic creature, she uses her powers to save him. But Nicholas is deeply tainted with Free magic and Lirael must seek help for him at her childhood home, the Clayr's Glacier. But even as she returns to the Clayr, a messenger is trying to reach Lirael with a dire warning from her long-dead mother, Arielle, about the Witch with No Face. But who is the Witch, and what is she planning? Once more a great danger threatens the Old Kingdom, and it must be forestalled not only in the living world, but also in the cold, remorseless river of Death.

Begin a new adventure: the first thrilling installment of Garth Nix's bestselling OLD KINGDOM fantasy series. Sabriel has spent most of her young life far away from the magical realm of the Old Kingdom, and the Dead that roam it. But all that changes when a creature from across the Wall arrives at her all-girls boarding school. The creature carries a message from her father, the Abhorsen - the magical protector of the realm whose task it is to bind and send back to Death those that won't stay Dead. Since the demise of the Royal Family the Dead have become stronger and more fearless, and now it seems their forces are threatening to overwhelm the Old Kingdom. Sabriel's father has been trapped in Death by a dangerous Free Magic creature. He urges her to return to her homeland, and to discover who or what is behind this uprising. Armed with her father's binding-bells and sword, she soon finds companions in Mogget, an ancient spirit bound into the body of a cat, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage whom Sabriel frees from a long, magical imprisonment. As the three travel deep into the Old Kingdom, threats mount on all sides. And every step brings them closer to a battle that will pit them against the true forces of life and death - and bring Sabriel face-to-face with her own destiny. With over 1 million Old Kingdom books sold in the UK, this timeless fantasy series is perfect for readers of Philip Pullman.

«ضاعت طفولتي في صراع ضد أمي وأخي ونفسي، والتهمَتْ كتبُ العلم والطب مراهقتي وفَجرَ شبابي … كلُّ ما كنتُ أعرفه في ذلك الوقت أنني بنتٌ كما أسمع من أمي. بنت! ولم يكن لكلمةِ «بنت» في نظري سوى معنًى واحد، هو أنني لستُ ولدًا، لستُ مثل أخي!» حين يُعايِش الإنسانُ آلامَه، حين يدوِّن المكلومُ سِنِي جراحه، حين تتخلَّل الحياةَ لحظاتٌ نَديَّة تروي ظمأَ الطفولة المُهدَرة، تُجِير تلك الفتاة الحالمة، المُتمردة، الصلبة، من لكمات واقعها الأليم؛ تُصبح «مذكرات طبيبة» حَكْيًا ذاتيًّا، يتجاوز حدودَ الرواية، ليُجسِّد تجربةً إنسانية فريدة. سطَّرتِ الدكتورة «نوال السعداوي» ما قاسَتْه وتقاسيه كلُّ فتاة وامرأة تنشأ ولا تجد غيرَ أفكارٍ وعاداتٍ تقتل فيها كلَّ حُبٍّ للحياة ونفسها وذويها، تسوقها لكره وحقد نحو مجتمع لا تجد فيه رجاء، مجتمع تستحيل فيه الفتاةُ الحالمة الرقيقة البريئة إلى إنسانٍ خائف، عنيف، يتوجس خيفةً من كل قريب وبعيد.
This year, we mark the 70th anniversary of the IMF and World Bank and the 50th anniversary of F&D. The world has seen a staggering amount of change in the past seven decades. So, with these two anniversaries in mind we focused our attention on the transformation of the global economy—looking back and looking ahead. What will the global economy look like in another 70 years? Five Nobel laureates—George Akerlof, Paul Krugman, Robert Solow, Michael Spence, and Joseph Stiglitz—share their thoughts on which single “frontier” issue promises to shape the economic landscape in the years ahead. In “A World of Change,” Ayhan Kose and Ezgi Ozturk chart the economic transformations of the past 70 years. Martin Wolf looks at the perils and promise of globalization in “Shaping Globalization.” IMF Chief Christine Lagarde charts a course for the IMF in the next decade in Straight Talk IMF Chief Economist Olivier Blanchard distills the lessons of the 2008 global financial crisis in “Where Danger Lurks.” This issue also features cartoonist Nick Galifianakis and Joe Procopio telling the story of the IMF’s origins in a seven-page comic. The People in Economics series profiles a giant in economics—Nobel winner and Stanford professor Ken Arrow, who built on an early passion for math and work in meteorology during World War II to launch a storied career in economics. Articles on the future of energy in the global economy by Jeffrey Ball and on measuring inequality—the most hotly debated economic issue of recent days—by Jonathan Ostry and Andrew Berg round out the package.
