Here is the Islamic Republic of Iran today, in all its beauty, ferocity, and contradiction - from the modern bustling capital of Tehran to the medieval holy city of Qom. A fusion of eloquent travelogue, historical inquiry, unforgettable portraits of people, and interviews with Iranians from all walks of life, Neither East nor West is a landmark contribution to both travel writing and cultural studies, as well as a timely illumination of an enthralling nation deeply misunderstood by most Westerners. As an American woman traveling alone, largely by bus, Bird offers an insightful look at a complex nation that has long been obscured by unfortunate stereotypes and misunderstandings.
