Drugs and man from a scientific-spiritual perspective

Orlando Donfrancesco

ISBN 978-9928-811-06-6

Price 1200 Lekë / 12 €

214 pages

Narcotics have accompanied man throughout his history as a fundamental element as well as an obstacle in his development. Then how should we judge them from a scientific-social point of view, beyond the known chemical-physical mechanisms? What is their sensory action in humans? And at the same time, what is their esoteric role in our history of development?


Flurans Ilia

ISBN 978-9928-811-25-7

Price 900 Lekë / 9 €

Flurans Ilia belongs to that increasingly small group of writers who believe with all their heart that literature can change human destiny, or make  everyday more human. After an unusual experience of cognitive journeys across the globe and in its main languages, Ilia deeply recognises the fragmented and disintegrating nature of post modernity and aims at the harmonious conception of the universe in the reader’s consciousness precisely through the fragmentation of the artistic subject. The heel of memory thus becomes a wound, but the only wound from which air can be breathed.

Ernest Koliqi, even in the difficult days of exile, has not stopped either his interest or his fruitful activity for the affairs of the Albanian emigration, the diaspora and the Albanians who lived under the Serb-Slavic occupation. He followed the development of the school and the Albanian culture in those regions with care and constant interest and advised that “that great work, started so successfully, not only should not be interrupted, but should be increased and flourish more and more, because “…only a cultured people has the right to demand their rights and impose them on others”.
Dr. Lazar Radi

The publication of the contemporary “Shêjzat” aims to fulfil an intellectual duty towards the motherland, at a time when in the quadrant of history the hooks are marking a moment of life-threatening danger. The Albanian world is going through the darkest and most frightening period of their existence. By the Albanian world, we mean the entire nation that speaks Albanian and nurtures the will to be united freely in a fraternal coexistence based on the equality of the people and the spiritual inheritance of our great grandfathers and the tribal features that distinguish us from other nations.
Ernest Koliqi – the first issue of “Shêjzat”
