Présentation de l'éditeur :

Readers of Princess Sultana's extraordinary biography Princess were gripped by her powerful indictment of women's lives behind the veil within the royal family of Saudi Arabia. They were every bit as fascinated by the sequel, Daughters of Arabia.

Here, the princess turns the spotlight on her two daughters, Maha and Amani, both teenagers. Surrounded by untold opulence and luxury from the day they were born, but stifled by the unbearably restrictive lifestyle imposed on them, they reacted in equally desperate ways.

Their dramatic and shocking stories, together with many more which concern other members of Princess Sultana's huge family, are set against a rich backdrop of Saudi Arabian culture and social mores which she depicts with equal colour and authenticity. We learn, for example, of the fascinating ritual of the world-famous annual pilgrimage to Makkah as we accompany the princess and her family to this holiest of cities. Throughout, however, she never tires of her quest to expose the injustices which her society levels against women. In her courageous campaign to improve the lot of her own daughters of Arabia, Princess Sultana once more strikes a chord amongst all women who are lucky enough to have the freedom to speak out for themselves.

Quatrième de couverture :

Millions of readers worldwide were shocked at Princess Sultana's extraordinarily open and honest story, Princess, the first-hand exposé of women's lives behind the veil inside the royal family of Saudi Arabia. In Daughters of Arabia, the Princess turns the spotlight on her teenage daughters, Maha and Amani.

Surrounded by unbelievable opulence, Sultana's daughters have grown up taking their luxuries for granted. Yet, stifled by the horrendous restrictions imposed on all females, even royals, they have reacted in very different, but equally desperate ways.

This is a compelling story, set against the background of a turbulent society pitting authoritarian royal rule against fundamentalist religious demands, external political pressures and the tug of economic hardship in a land overflowing with oil revenues. This is the land that produced Osama Bin Laden. And yet it is a land of beauty, history and religion, home of Islam's holiest sites. It is in this environment of paradox and contrast that Sultana tries to rear her daughters as she seeks to expose injustice. In her courageous quest, Sultana once more strikes a chord amongst all women lucky enough to live their lives in freedom.

Description du livre WINDSOR-BROOKE BOOKS, United States, 2010. Paperback. État : New. 216 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Reader s of Princess Sultana s true story, Princess, were gripped by her powerful indictment of women s lives behind the veil within the royal family of Saudi Arabia. Now, the princess and Jean Sasson turn the spotlight on Sultana s two teenage daughters, Maha and Amani. During her own youth, Sultana chafed under the harsh social system into which she was born. Today, despite untold wealth and privilege, Princess Sultana cannot buy the rights and freedoms women in other cultures possess, for herself, or for her daughters. Although Sultana lives with a constant fear of retribution--even death at the hand of her own father or brother, her passion to provide her two daughters with a better life transcends her fear and fuels her desire for change.As second-generation members of the royal family who have benefited from Saudi oil wealth, Maha and Amani have known nothing but opulence and wealth from the moment of their birth. Yet, stilled by the unbearable restrictive lifestyle imposed on them, Maha and Amani have reacted in equally desperate ways.Maha is a headstrong beauty driven by fear and isolation due to Saudi Arabia s feudal justice. Described by her father as a girl of brilliant fragments, Maha s gifted mind cannot focus on one goal. When Maha becomes involved in a lesbian relationship, she ends having an emotional breakdown and requires psychiatric treatment in London. Amani, the youngest daughter, rebels in her way during the religious frenzy of Haj, the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Makkah. Once a sweet and placid animal-lover, Amani emerges almost overnight from her dormant religious faith and embraces Islamic beliefs with unnerving intensity. Amani s fundamental fanaticism threatens to destroy her mother s personal quest to imporove women s lot in her native land. With candor and humility, Sultana shares the joy, frustration, and dark intervals of my fear of Saudi Arabian motherhood and marriage. She details the difficulties inherent in raising d.
