    The untruths begin with the cover of the book, which features the image of a woman who is dressed in a manner which is decidedly not Iranian So, even before you have read a single word, you have been given an image that is not authentic.The book is carefully packaged to cater to the American people s fears and prejudices Also, the book isn t an isolated phenomenon It s a ...

    I can t believe people are still reading this book I read it years ago when it first came out and had a difficult time putting it down Not because it is great literature, or because it is an intelligent, thought provoking book about a culture few Americans take the time to learn about, but because William Hoffer is capable of writing a light, fast paced, adventurous story I felt Betty Mahmoody acted very irresponsibly She endangered her child by staying wi...

    You can argue about how negative and stereotyping this book is, how it helped to reinforce generalized preconceptions about the Iranians, how it didn t help to provide a better andaccurate picture of the Iranian society to the an already hostile American public, how it was used by a sector of the American public and media who would happily jump on anything like this, how it was used by both sides as a political propaganda tool, etc I read this book not long after I left Iran I don t reme You can argue about how negative and stereotyping this book is, how it helped to reinforce generalized preconceptions about the Iranians, how it didn t help to provide a better andaccurate picture of the Iranian society to the an already hostile American public, how it was used by a sector of the American public and media who would happily jump on anything like this, how it was used by both sides as a political propaganda tool, etc I read this book not long after I left Iran I don t remember all the details, but let me tell you this There was not a single thing in the book that I could point my finger at and say this can t be true It is entirely plausible that everything that Betty is recounting is true, depending on her husband s social economic cultural religious background There were parts in the book that made me go this ain t so bad, sweetheart I ve seen worse Oh, and it s not all that rare to find people like Betty s in laws in Iran.Those Iranians who sc...

    I d like to first point out that I was born in Iran and spent the first six years of my life there We visited frequently until shortly after all the troubles started I ve never been back and I can t possibly imagine doing so I d rather keep the sweet memories that I had and not tarnish them with negative ones that I so often hear about When the movie, Not Without My Daughter came out back in 1991, I remember hearing that many of my fellow countrymen boycotted it They resented the fact tha I d like to first point out that I was born in Iran and spent the first six years of my life there We visited frequently until shortly after all t...
