Format: Hardcover
*"Nomad" is easy to read; and it makes many things very clear.
*Part 1 describes what happened to the author's relatives. These case histories already make you think a lot and draw a few conclusions.
Part 2 recounts how Ayaan left Holland for the United States. Her impressions about that new country are very interesting.
Part 3 explains the troubled relationship that many people from her background have with sexuality, money, and violence.
Part 4 lays down the solutions she offers. Juicy material.
*Particularly touching is her "Letter to my unborn daughter", found towards the end of the book...
*If you go to the website of the AHA foundation and click on the link following WHAT DO WE KNOW, you'll access a very complete and informative document.
*This book is about undoubtedly one of the major challenges of the century. Buy it.

Ayaan tells her amazing story of her moral struggles between her family, religion, cultural expectations and her own sense of right and wrong. A great insight into the many faces of Muslim faith.

it felt like this book was written from a very honest open place. A rare thing today to write about such a sensitive topic. Although some may accuse Ms. Hirsi of writting only from her personal point of view and that it may not reflet what other muslims feel or believe, I dont buy this argument. Her writing is precise, her thought process clear, and frankly she is braver than anyone to tell it like it is.

I would recommend this book to everyone. It is so informative and as a true story breaks your heart to read how women are treated in different cultures and religions.

But not a great one. I enjoyed Infidel,(Mz. Ali's first book) more.
However I found Nomad informative and insightful. This is a brave woman.

12 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on June 7 2010
Format: Hardcover
Ayaan's sequel to Infidel arranges memories, philosophy and activism in elegant measure to explain, warn and inspire. The voyage she describes here leans more to the intellectual than the physical of Infidel while still integrating events since the murder of Theo van Gogh which ultimately brought her to America. The narrative of a farewell visit to her dying father, analyses of her family as microcosm for the whole Muslim world and the medicines she prescribes - the non-allopathic ones in particular - reveal a generous spirit and loving heart.

Devoted to the family, Part One deals with the death of her father and her relations with her mother, half-sister, brother and his son, and her cousins. She holds up the history and experiences of several of her relatives to demonstrate the plight of Muslim families, particularly those in the West. Her observations correspond closely to those of Dr Wafa Sultan who grew up in Syria and those of Egyptian-born Nonie Darwish as related in Now They Call Me Infidel and Cruel and Usual Punishment.

In the letter to her grandmother she appeals to Somalis and Muslims to admit that the old ways go round in circles now, that new thinking is needed and that progress necessitates giving up some traditions and certainties. Alfred North Whitehead showed why symbolism needs to be constantly adapted and modified by new forms of expression. Worn symbols have to be remolded in accordance with changes in societal structure. Stagnation leads to regression that brings forth toxic fruits like tyranny and the terror of Jihad.
