My Journeys in the Muslim World

Recounted in gripping words and unforgettable images, Avakian’s remarkable experiences will draw readers into the Muslim world to meet friends and rebels, leaders and thieves and everyday people. Her style is always probing, yet compassionate. Given the interest in Muslim culture since the events of 9/11, Avakian’s fascinating photographs and rich personal story will captivate, educate, and linger with us forever.  Foreword by John M. Fahey Jr., President and CEO of the National Geographic Society.
