David Gilmour The British in India: A Social History of the Raj is a brilliant historical account, which avoids over simplifications or political posturing.

Author David Gilmour states: William Dalrymple, reviewing the book The Guardian, said: Updated 01 April Ghada Samman, no stranger to the Arab literary world, has been publishing since the early s, both literary and journalistic pieces. Known to push boundaries, Samman created her own publishing house, Ghada Al-Samman Publications, to avoid censorship of her work. She has written more than 25 volumes of stories, essays and novels.


Originally published in Arabic inthe book was then translated into English by Nancy Roberts and published by Darf Publishers in She writes with a clarity as she describes Damascus, with its vibrant history, ancient bhada and the societal contradictions that fall within its walls.

Samman does an incredible job of writing about Zain and her dreams, to seek freedom and independence in a world that does not allow many women that privilege.
