Guests of the Sheik : an ethnography of an Iraqi village

by Elizabeth Warnock Fernea

DPL Rating:
5

Guests of the Sheik is the firsthand account of Elizabeth Warnock Fernea's experience living in an Iraqi village for several years in the 1950's with her anthropologist husband. I loved the book because it was a very open, sincere look into a culture and a time that I knew little about.
