Description from the publisher:
One of the few who can speak as an American, Muslim, Arab, and nationally televised journalist, news anchor Ahmed M. Soliman offers a unique and essential perspective of the post 9/11 world in Born in the USA.
Not only is Soliman's story a poignant and eye-opening look at such issues as the media, war on terror, and racism, it's also a fascinating portrayal of what it's like to be a Muslim in the United States of America today. Soliman shares his reflections and insights by bringing together such diverse perspectives as international foreign ministers, comedians, and U.S. congressmen at a time in American history when mutual understanding and knowledge between the West and East is of paramount importance.
Arabs and Muslim Americans searching for a corresponding point of view and non-Arab Muslim Americans seeking a better understanding of the world today and the people across the sea who influence it will find Born in the USA an invaluable and insightful read.
