A celebration of free speech and democracy and a rousing call to action from the widely acclaimed author of Infidel, this #1 national bestseller is now available in trade paperback from Vintage Canada. In Nomad, Ayaan Hirsi Ali tells her story of her emotional journey to freedom to build a new life following her flight from a tribal world that limits women's every thought and action. After breaking with her family, she struggled to throw off restrictive superstitions and misconceptions--sometimes with very funny results--in order to assimilate into Western society. She has endured death threats and the horrendous murder of her collaborator and friend by an Islamic fanatic, but has not ceased to call on women and key institutions of the West to enact innovative remedies that could help Muslim immigrants everywhere overcome similar challenges--and resist the fatal allure of fundamentalism and terrorism.
