Format: Paperback
I must say my expectations were never really high for this book, but after engaging with it i feel even worse about the fact that these opinions are out there to influence minds and souls. Arguments are taken out of context ,a lot of points the author makes have nothing to do with what is supposed to be the essence of the book and mostly its just standard terrorism scare. A one sided western perspective reproducing standard tropes about women and terrorism. Last but not least you should never judge a book by its cover but in this case it gives away what the quality of the pages under the cover is like. Popular culture and fishing for cheap votes outside and inside....i am not saying the author engages in deliberate deception, she might well believe what she says, she just seems uninformed narrow minded and unable to engage with terrorism objectively,acknowledging the other side as humans..
