About meFor 25 years I practiced international corporate law in New York City, Paris, Saudi Arabia and Cincinnati. Part of my practice involved refugees from the Middle East, Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union who were seeking asylum in the United States. Although these refugees were sometimes fleeing war, imprisonment, torture, or even death, it was tremendously difficult to obtain asylum for them. In one case, in particular, by winning an asylum case, I knew that I had helped to save the life of the refugee.
About my libraryThe books I am showing in my library are those which I used in my research for "A Thousand Veils." They are primarily by and about Muslim women. My personal library is very eclectic and contains books in both English and French.
