Through the text and unique photos found in this book one gets a vivid impression of Bedouin life in Qatar fifty years ago, from a time where the oil economy had not yet changed the country and caused the Bedouins to take up settled life in the cities. The photographs depict the pure but simple life amohg the citizens two generations ago, a life that seems light years away from today’s affluent consumer society. The pictures therefore also tell the story of life of the previous generations and their ability to endure the harshness of life in the desert, while at the same time having developed a rich and refined material culture and an ethos of trustworthiness and generous hopsitality- a valuable foundation for the life of coming generations. The Danish archaeological excavations and the ethnographic research were the first carried out in Qatar and thereby laid the foundation for future research in these fields. With descriptive text in Englsh and Arabic and astoundingly beautiful, moving photographs of the desert people and their way of life.

There are loads of books covering the basics of getting along with and disciplining children, but as every parent knows, each kid is different, and there’s no telling what will or won’t work. Anna Glas and Åse Teiner have many years of experience as certified parental coaches, and being mothers themselves, they realized that looking at problems from different angles and using novel approaches can have pleasantly-surprising results. Do This! Not That! tells forty-nine real stories of parents using unconventional methods in everyday situations. Every story starts with a short background of the problem, shows the parents trying out a wacky solution, and then follows them to see the result and suggests other creative methods of dealing with the problem. What happens when you give your son ice cream before dinner, when you pay a teen from the neighborhood to take your baby for a ride in the stroller while you catch up on sleep, or when you let your daughter eat cookies on her way to preschool? Divided into three sections—Grow as an Adult, Break Everyday Patterns, and Say “Yes!”—Do This! Not That! will show you that thinking outside the box may be just what you need to get a handle on those rascals.
