An American Woman in Kuwait based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Highly recommend readers digest this fascinating story by Dr. David Haines' spouse. Stephanie C. Fox, J.D., chronicles her travels with Dr. David Haines, a UCONN Ph.D. / Immunologist, in this insightful cultural travelogue. Hope to see more collaborative writings in the future by this courageous team as they advocate for individual rights internationally and Veteran's in the United States.
If you think you might enjoy reading about the experiences of a once-in-a-lifetime visit to Kuwait, then this is the book for you. As an added bonus, the author has an extensive background in women's studies and is therefore quite sensitive to cultural differences which impact women's lives. The author visited Kuwait for six months in 2004 and 2005. The book is written as a travel journal and is well organized. The author's natural curiosity results in a refreshingly open description of Kuwaiti life. The reader feels as though the experience is both real and personal; you feel as though you are there. Finally, the book is not without some intrigue when it discusses interactions with Kuwaiti friends and acquaintances. And, there are even a few good Kuwaiti ghost stories!
