An American Woman in Kuwait is a travelogue written by an American lawyer who accompanied her husband, a Ph.D. immunologist, to Kuwait. The trip spanned almost six months. Stephanie C. Fox strips away the veneer of modern technology and Western influences to explore features of the nation not widely known or appreciated by the public worldwide. A major focus of her work is the degree to which the traditions and prejudices of the tribes from which Kuwaitis claim ancestry act to maintain an inferior status for women. While in Kuwait, the author lived among Kuwaitis, ate traditional foods, mingled with Kuwaitis, studied Kuwaiti history, visited most of its museums, and spent a weekend with her husband at the Wafra Farms Oasis. She was even lucky enough to meet Kuwait's most famous woman suffragist, Rola A. Al-Dashti, Ph.D. Stephanie made friends with Kuwaitis. This cost-saving version offers the book with black-and-white images.... ownera#39;s manual from the glove compartment to look up the fuse box location and see which fuse controls the front windows. Aiesha was amazed when I told her that I used to do this with my own second-hand Mercedes at home in the States.
