My Hope for Peace (Other)

Unavailable. No reason given.


From the former First Lady of Egypt, best-selling author, crusader for women's rights, and widow of the slain Nobel Peace Prize winner Anwar Sadat, comes a timely, clear-eyed examination of the defining issues of the Middle East. Drawing on their life together and her first-hand knowledge of the recent history the Middle East - history she played no small role in shaping - she distils the lessons that Sadat's peace can provide. Along the way, she outlines the origins of modern Islamic terrorism, something she has confronted both politically and personally; addresses the attendant misconceptions about her faith; and debunks many of the myths of Muslim womanhood, not least by displaying the straight-talking passion and political acumen that have earned her both admiration and enmity.

The widow of the late Egyptian president and Nobel Peace Prize-winner Anwar Sadat, Jehan Sadat is an eloquent spokesperson and activist for women's rights, literacy, and humanitarian causes worldwide. She was responsible for the Egyptian civil rights laws which expanded rights for women, founded the Arab-African Women's League, and has continued her late husband's quest for peace. At the age of 40, Sadat entered Cairo University, earning her B.A. degree in Arabic Literature four years later and graduating at the top of her class. She has since earned both an M.A. degree (in 1980) and a Ph.D. degree (1986) from Cairo University and has been a Lecturer in Arabic Literature. Dr. Sadat has received 18 honorary doctoral degrees and a number of prestigious international awards, including the UNICEF's Children's Champion Award.
