9781408707937: Raif Badawi: The Voice of Freedom: My Husband, Our Story

A powerful first-person account of Ensaf Haidar’s life wither her husband, Saudi Arabian social activist Raif Badawi, and her worldwide campaign to free him from imprisonment
 
Ensaf Haidar's unforgettable account of her marriage to imprisoned Saudi blogger Raif Badawi tells the story of the survival of their love against all odds, and of her courageous fight for her husband’s freedom.

When Ensaf and Raif married in 2002 they shed tears of joy; they had overcome the resistance of her family and the rigid conventions of Saudi Arabian culture, and their battle to be together was finally won. But an even greater challenge lay ahead.
After the romance of their clandestine courtship, the triumph of their wedding day, and the ups and downs of married life, Ensaf discovers that Raif is becoming active in the liberal movement. Their partnership grows stronger as Raif works tirelessly, daring to question the social order of Saudi Arabia — until his activities attract the attention of the religious police. With Raif under increasing surveillance, Ensaf reluctantly accepts exile as the only way to protect their three young children, hoping that Raif will soon join them.

But Raif's arrest and subsequent sentence — to ten years in prison and 1,000 lashes — change everything. Ensaf must take up the fight for her husband’s life, galvanizing global support and campaigning for his freedom — and their right to be reunited as a family again.

This profoundly moving memoir is both a love story and an inspiring account of the making of not one but two heroic human rights activists.

About the Author :

Ensaf Haidar was born in 1975 in Jizan, Saudi Arabia. Against the will of her family she married Raif Badawi in 2002. When Raif was imprisoned, Ensaf and their children escaped from Saudi Arabia and were finally granted asylum in Canada. Since then Ensaf has been desperately fighting to free her husband and raise awareness of Raif’s story across the world.

Andrea C. Hoffmann is a political editor and Middle East expert for the news magazine Focus and has been travelling the region for more than fifteen years. She recently coauthored The Girl Who Beat Isis: Farida's Story (Vintage). Hoffmann’s reportages about Iran have been awarded many prizes.

Shaun Whiteside has translated many books from the German, including the works of Nietzsche, Spengler, and Freud.

Review :

“Aided by Middle East reporter Hoffmann, Haidar reveals not only the harsh treatment of her husband, sentenced to 10 years in a Saudi Arabian prison and 1,000 lashes for the crime of apostasy, but also the severe limitations on the lives of women in Saudi Arabia... Although Badawi, a recipient of the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, remains in prison, Haidar’s book ends on an optimistic note, her spirits buoyed by the international support her efforts have garnered. A sobering exposé of Saudi Arabian culture and a tribute to the courage and strength of both the author and her husband.” —KIRKUS REVIEWS
 
“With the backdrop of politically charged Saudi Arabia, Haidar and Badawi’s story is made human and personal, showing a marriage full of the normal ups and downs—small arguments, the adventure of having children together, and tricky relationships with in-laws—while simultaneously chronicling Badawi’s online rebellion against the conservative regime running the country. Her memoir reads like a novel; lovers of current events and politics will enjoy the sociopolitical analysis, and fans of memoirs will be caught up in this personal story.” —LIBRARY JOURNAL 

“Haidar’s book is subtitled My Husband, Our Story. In many ways, it is all her story, and probably better for it. It is the story not only of a dissident who falls foul of the Saudi religious authorities but also of the extraordinary circumscribing of Saudi women’s lives and the connivance of their family and menfolk in it...Its value lies in its fresh and often surprising insights into a society few westerners ever really penetrate and which is rarely written about honestly except by those who have already fled. Haidar’s story, the series of betrayals by those closest to her, reminds us it is not just a government, but a whole society, that colludes in repression.” —THE TIMES

“A particularly powerful telling of how the personal and the political can coincide..." —SIGNATURE READS 

“Voice of Freedom was an unforgettable book that I will carry with me for a long time." —LUXURY READING

Description du livre Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The whole world knows the face of the young man with the bright black eyes. He is in the process of becoming an icon, a symbol, similar to the famous photo of Che Guevara. The face is that of Raif Badawi, who was nominated for the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize. Arrested in Saudi Arabia, he was sentenced to ten years imprisonment and 1000 lashes - a de facto death sentence.The woman who succeeded in getting such people as Barack Obama and Prince Charles to appeal personally to the Saudi King for Badawi s release is his wife, Ensaf Haidar, who began the campaign to free her husband with a self-painted poster in front of a small church in Sherbrooke, Canada.When Raif Badawi and Ensaf Haidar fell in love with each other as adolescents, they did so in violation of every moral precept in the strictly Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. During their clandestine love affair, the young couple had no idea that, more than a decade later, Ensaf s love for Raif would attract the attention of politicians from around the world as the blogger s wife now mobilises global public opinion in an effort to save her husband from murder at the hands of the Saudi judiciary. With a courage born of desperation, she is fighting from exile in Canada to secure the release of the father of her three children, and is bringing great pressure to bear on the murderous regime in her native country.Ensaf Haidar tells Raif s and her own story: the story of their shared liberal ideas and her fight for her husband s release.
