              I Am Nujood, Age 10 And Divorced (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Minoui, Delphine; Ali, Nujood

              The internationally bestselling true story of the remarkable ten-year-old Yemeni girl who dared to defy her country's most archaic traditions by fighting for a divorce I'm a simple village girl whose family had to move to the capital, and I have always obeyed the orders of the me...n in my family. Since forever, I have learned to say yes to everything. Today, I have decided to say no. Uplifting and impossible to put down, this is a true story of the ten-year old girl who won a divorce from the man she was forced to marry, courageously defying both Yemeni customs and her own family. Nujood's childhood came to an abrupt end when her father arranged for her to be married to a man three times her age. With harrowing directness, Nujood tells of abuse at her husband's hands, beginning with the very first night of her married life, and ending the day she slipped away during an errand. Instead of going to the market to buy bread, she took a taxi to the court building. That was the beginning of her odyssey. With the help of a woman lawyer, Chadha Nasser, NGO's and the local press, Nujood finally obtained her freedom, an extraordinary achievement in Yemen, where there is a conspiracy of silence about the fact that almost half the girls are married under the legal age. Since her victory, Nujood has given other young girls the courage to stand up to their society's customs. Written with childlike simplicity and penetrating honesty, I Am Nujood is at once shocking and inspiring, disturbing and redemptive.

              Crime and Justice in New Zealand examines the recent crime trends and the social, political, and legal changes in New Zealand from the end of the twentieth century to the present. Serving as the only New Zealand-specific criminal justice text, this book takes a direct look at wha...t is unique about the country's criminal justice system and recent crime trends. Crime rates peaked in the early 1990s and have fallen since. Newbold considers why this happened through factors such as economy, ethnic composition, changing cultural trends, and legislative developments in policing and criminal justice. He unpacks various types of crime separately-violent crime, property crime, drug crime, gang crime, organised crime, etc.-and examines each in terms of the various complex factors affecting it, using illustrative examples from recent high-profile cases.
