The Thousand Families - Commentary on Leading Political Figures of Nineteenth Century Iran (Hardcover, New edition): Patricia... The Thousand Families - Commentary on Leading Political Figures of Nineteenth Century Iran (Hardcover, New edition)
Patricia J. Higgins, Pouneh Shabani Jadidi; Ali Shabani
R1,759 R1,329 Discovery Miles 13 290 Save R430 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Thousand Families by Ali Shabani, former court journalist and writer under Mohammad Reza Shah, is a lively and entertaining anecdotal history of the Qajar family, who ruled Iran from 1796 to 1925, as well as a number of their associates. Using memoirs, diaries, government documents, and nineteenth century histories, the author paints a vivid picture of the strengths and weaknesses, character and habits, and family backgrounds and familial legacies of the leading figures of the day. He comments, often ironically and with novel metaphors and sometimes biting criticism, on the behavior of these leaders, and he provides concise observations concerning the effects of their actions on the country and people of Iran. He outlines as well the policies and practices of the Qajars with respect to governance and traces the changes effected in the overall governmental structure of Iran during the nineteenth and early twentieth century. The gradually increasing influence of foreign powers (primarily Great Britain and Russia) throughout this era does not escape the author's acerbic comments. Appendices provide extensive documentation on kinship relationships within the royal family. The translators have added notes, bracketed in the text and in footnotes, to help orient readers less familiar with Iranian history than the author's original audience. These include key dates, more detail on sources (when available), reference to easily accessible additional information on key figures, and explanations of selected Persian sayings, customs, and practices. Scholars and students of Iran, the Middle East, and the nineteenth century in general will find this book of interest, as will the general reader interested in royalty, political systems, revolution, and center-periphery relationships.

Translation Metacognitive Strategies (Paperback): Pouneh Shabani Jadidi Translation Metacognitive Strategies (Paperback)
Pouneh Shabani Jadidi
R1,564 Discovery Miles 15 640 Special order

The focus of this study is translation, a task during which one's mind is constantly active in planning, regulating, and evaluating the cognitive processes involved. The present study is done in pursuit of discovering uniformity in human thought patterns - in this case, while translating. It strives to discover a framework for translation metacognitive strategies since this special domain of translation has not yet been tackled in the literature. Listening to learners articulate the metacognitive strategies that they use while translating, together with their functions and reasons, will add to our information about this complex task of translation. Moreover, investigating the impact of different factors, such as language proficiency, intelligence, and general texts versus specific ones, as well as different types of translation testing, will cast some light on the blurry field of translation. The results of this study will contribute to any translation related discipline, paving the way for further research into the fuzzy fields of translation in general and metacognition in particular.
