Nomad: A Personal Journey Through the Clash of Civilizations

by Ayaan Hirsi Ali - £9.99  Simon & Schuster Ltd (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781847398185 | ISBN 10: 1847398189

Nomad is a philosophical memoir, telling how Ayaan Hirsi Ali came to America in search of a new life, and the difficulties she faced in reconciling her two worlds. With vivid anecdotes and observations of people, cultures, and political debacles, this narrative weaves together Hirsi Ali's personal story - including her reconciliation with her devout father who had disowned her when she denounced Islam - with the stories of other women and men, high-profile and not, whom she encounters.
 
With a deep understanding and intimate perspective of the situation of Muslim women and moderates in the world today and her singular, unwavering intellectual courage, Hirsi Ali offers her always notable, often controversial analysis of Islam vis a vis the superiority of Western democratic values.
