About the Author:

Aysha Taryam, the first Middle Eastern female Editor-in-Chief of an English language newspaper - The Gulf Today - embodies the twin qualities of a writer and a liberal campaigner. Taryam, a member of the family that owns the famous UAE-based media house Dar Al Khaleej. A voracious reader with a piercing eye for details, the author is high on facts and higher on arguments. The articles, erudite and showcased in a definite sledgehammer style, are unsparing, both in theme and tenor.

Review:

"Taryam's essays in this book project summarize, with fascinating lucidity, complex social issues considered taboos to be avoided rather than addressed." --Clovis Maksoud
