Background At present, the worldwide health authority, in the form of the World Health Organisation ( WHO) has drawn great attention to the importance of improving women's sexual health globally. It is increasingly concerned about women's sexual health and permanently works to shed light on the innovative approaches that are needed to raise women's awareness of risky behaviour. and to help them access the advice and treatment they need to avoid negative health outcomes that would impact on their future lives. Research into women's sexual health in Saudi Arabia will help in identifying possible causes of poor sexual health care that could be used as preventive tools in that, or similar cultures. In addition, it helps to meet women's physiological, emotional and educational needs, which is essential to support good sexual health.

This prize-winning novel, the first to be written by an Algerian woman in Arabic, is concerned with Algeria's struggle against foreign domination as well as its post-independence struggle with itself and the fate of revolutionary ideals in a post-revolutionary society. The story, spanning more than four decades of Algerian history, from the 1940s to the 1980s, revolves around a love affair between Khaled, the middle-aged militant who turns to painting after losing his left arm in the struggle, and the fiction writer and young daughter of his friend the freedom fighter Si Taher, all brilliantly told through Khaled's voice. It was features such as this convincing embodiment of a male voice alongside narrative techniques in which the author subtly joins the acheivements of world literature with that of local storytelling and traditional modes of narration that particularly impressed the judges who awarded this novel the Naguib Mahfouz Medal for Literature.

Archaeoastronomy and the Maya illustrates archaeoastronomical approaches to ancient Mayan cultural production. The book is contextualized through a history of archaeoastronomical investigations into Mayan sites, originating in the 19th century discovery of astronomical tables within hieroglyphic books. Early 20th century archaeological excavations revealed inscriptions carved into stone that also preserved astronomical records, along with architecture that was built to reflect astronomical orientations. These materials provided the basis of a growing professionalized archaeoastronomy, blossoming in the 1970s and expanding into recent years. The chapters here exemplify the advances made in the field during the early 21st century as well as the on-going diversity of approaches, presenting new perspectives and discoveries in ancient Mayan astronomy that result from recent studies of architectural alignments, codices, epigraphy, iconography, ethnography, and calendrics. More than just investigations of esoteric ancient sciences, studies of ancient Mayan astronomy have profoundly aided our understanding of Mayan worldviews. Concepts of time and space, meanings encoded in religious art, intentions underlying architectural alignments, and even methods of political legitimization are all illuminated through the study of Mayan astronomy.

En árabe «Ahlam» significa «los sueños». ¿Puede el amor sobrevivir a la oscuridad del fanatismo? Una luminosa historia romántica marcada por el odio. Cuando el famoso pintor francés Paul Arezzo llega a los Querquenes en el año 2000, el archipiélago tunecino es un idílico refugio para quienes buscan paz y belleza. Una vez instalado en la llamada Casa del Mar, Paul entabla una estrecha amistad con la familia de un pescador local, Farhat, pero sobre todo con su hijo Issam y su hija Ahlam, ambos con extraordinarias dotes para la música y la pintura. Diez años después el mundo ha cambiado, el radicalismo islámico se extiende y los problemas alcanzan a este paraíso perdido. Mientras el fanatismo gana terreno a la razón, Issam parece alejarse cada vez más y la relación de Paul y Ahlam cambia para siempre. Pero ¿seguirá existiendo en la pequeña isla un lugar para el arte y el amor? Ahlam ha sido galardonada con el Premio Maison de la Presse 2016 y finalista del Premio RTL Lire. Reseñas: «A medida que el ritmo se vuelve trepidante en la última parte del libro, las páginas van pasando más y más deprisa hasta el magnífico final.» Metro «Impulsado por una escritura sensual, Ahlam es también una oda a la belleza del arte.» Livres Hebdo «Trévidic, un juez amante del rock and roll y experto en antiterrorismo, publica una primera novela sorprendente.» Le Point «Un apasionante relato de una juventud tunecina que se debate entre el Islam radical y el progreso, y que prueba que la ficción puede ser tan potente como la no ficción para contar la realidad.» Lire «Como en una novela policíaca, quedamos atrapados en un engranaje implacable.» Télérama «En su primera novela, Trévidic aborda la cuestión del fanatismo. Armado con su experiencia, describe los mecanismos del adoctrinamiento para conocer mejor cómo erradicarlo.» Le Soir
