    Book details


Arabic women deal with very serious issues that they often feel powerless to change. Western women are raised to be extremely assertive and even fight for her rights. One who is both Arab and American is very often, very confused. Her one foot is planted firmly in a traditional world whose cultural rules haven't changed in over 2,000 years. Her other foot is skidding on a thin piece of ice, the mega-liberal free-for-all, called America. And she is trying to balance walking on both.This hilarious, lighthearted survival guide explains how to retain one's sanity in the battle of the ultimate culture clash, and offers hilarious explanations as to why we have absurd cultural rules such as arranged marriages.Best of all, Westerners not only finally have a practical tool in which to better understand us and our wacky ways, but they too, can find answers. Like us, many Americans are struggling in this escalating socio-political cultural war. They are torn between conservatism and liberalism, tradition and progression, fidelity and fun, flats and pumps!It's hard to balance it all. It really is.Contrasting Eastern traditions with Western ideas, V2T explains how to function when one's conservative ethnic side is at war with their liberal Western side.
