Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Amman to Beirut and Damascus, award-winning NPR reporter Deborah Amos follows Sunnis living in exile--the largest exile population in postwar history. Husbands are separated from wives, children from parents, and many are cast into a violent and uncaring subculture in which they have few rights and no roots. Even college-educated women are forced to turn to prostitution. The decisions they make illuminate the human side of the post-conflict displacement in the Middle East and give voice to the trauma of the exiles who must choose daily between dignity and survival.

Synopsis:

An eye-opening look at the displacement of Sunni power and culture throughout the Middle East by an award-winning NPR reporter
