In the quiet Balti villages, high in the Karakoram Mountains of North Pakistan, life goes on. The women live peacefully as they prepare for the seasonal harvest and take in views of the breathtaking high mountains and pastures. Deeply rooted female relationships bloom and mature, as do their sustainable, ecologically friendly lifestyles. The Balti women have been living in the mountains for centuries, so why does there seem to be change in the air? There’s the war on terror, going on just outside their village. There are the growing influences and stresses of modernization. How will this society cope with such changes, and is there any hope for its survival? Social geographer Farida Azhar-Hewitt has spent months living in the Karakoram Mountains with the Balti women; now she presents her detailed study and firsthand experience in The Other Side of Silence: The Lives of Women in the Karakoram Mountains. Azhar-Hewitt takes a careful look at this mountain society—gaining recent media attention for its close proximity to the war on terror. Through the violence and fear, the Balti people have remained peaceful; the women have remained fruitful. Living as an insider, Azhar-Hewitt takes us behind the veil of these rural Muslim women, revealing a world of seclusion, community, and joy, despite all odds.

‘If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence.’ George Eliot, Middlemarch Having spent her life trying to patch up the souls of others, psychiatrist Linda Gask came to realise that being an expert in depression didn’t confer any immunity from it – she had to learn take care of herself, too. Artfully crafted and told with warmth and honesty, this is the story of Linda’s journey, interwoven with insights into her patients’ diverse experiences of depression - inextricably linked with problems in the past and the present such as vulnerability, fear, loss, loneliness, dependence and grief. She sets out to convey, in a new and original way, how it truly feels to experience this devastating illness, what psychotherapy is about, and the role of medication - and provides hope for those who suffer from depression and their loved ones whilst busting the stigma of mental illness.

A compelling novel from the winner of the Commonwealth Writers Prize/ Best Book from Africa award. As a small child in a wintry Bremen, Hanna dreams about the other side of silence, the place where the wind comes from and palm trees wave in the sun. Seeing her chance to escape from years of abuse in an orphanage and in service, Hanna joins one of the shiploads of young women transported in the early years of the twentieth century to the colony of German South-West Africa to assuage the needs of the male settlers. Following atrocious punishment for daring to resist the advances of an army officer, she arrives at a phantasmagoric refuge in the African desert -- “prison, nunnery, brothel, shithouse, Frauenstein.” When the drunken excesses of a visiting army detachment threaten her only companion, Hanna revolts. Mounting a ragtag army of females and natives, she sets out on an epic march through the desert to take on the might of the German Reich. This apocalyptic journey through the darker regions of the soul will also reveal to Hanna the hidden meanings of suffering, revenge, companionship, love and compassion.

Ever make a mistake? Sure, we all have. The choices we make don’t always lead to the results we had hoped for. And what about the other people involved? Making our choice may cause misunderstanding, hurt, pain, grief or separation. How do we fix that? How can we be reconciled to those we love? How do we forgive or ask to be forgiven? “But it’s none of their business!” you say. “It’s my life and I’m making my choices alone!” Alone? Linda Azema thought she was alone, too. Using stories from her childhood, teenage and college years, Linda reveals an intricate web of voices clamoring around us, continually bombarding us with their messages and entangling our emotions. Linda is convinced: We are not alone, not in a single decision that we make. God comes near and speaks, because He loves you. The world broadcasts its message, because it aims to use you. And the devil who is called Satan will also speak his thoughts into your mind, because he wants to destroy you. Silence? Just you and your own thoughts? Listen again. There is more to our world than you may have realized on The Other Side of Silence. Still wondering if you should read this book? You’ll be wasting your time, unless you are... Someone who faces choices to make on a daily basis, dealing with the thoughts and different options that bounce around in your head. (Might be you?) Someone who might have a tendency to see things only from his own perspective. (Not you? Okay.) Someone who knows a person who needs to realize there’s more to life than ‘just me.’ (Still not you; but you know some, don’t you?) Someone who already knows these things, and needs a tool to help others.
