Eclipse of the Sunnis : Power, Exile, and Upheaval in the Middle East, Paperback / softback Book

Eclipse of the Sunnis : Power, Exile, and Upheaval in the Middle East Paperback / softback

Description

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.
