    DescriptionZainab Salbi's media profile soared with her first book, "Between Two Worlds, " a memoir of growing up in Saddam Hussein's inner circle. She has been a guest on "Oprah," has been interviewed by Katie Couric, Al Franken, and George Stephanopoulos, and has been profiled in the "New York Times, The Washington Post, " and "People" magazine. Her organization, Women for Women International, plays a vital role in helping to heal war-torn nations including Afghanistan, Bosnia, Rwanda, Congo, Sudan, and Colombia. With stunning images by award-winning photographers Susan Meiselas, Lekha Singh, and Sylvia Plachy, Salbi presents a riveting collection of letters and first-person narratives by amazing women who survived war's devastation and now must find the strength to rebuild families and communities. Throbbing with pain and loss yet glowing with courage and hope, "The Other Side of War" explores six regions where Women for Women International has helped survivors of the world's most tumultuous countries learn new skills, open small businesses and forge bonds with sponsors. Overviews by the author explain how each nation's history led to violent conflict; then, with searing eloquence, the women tell their stories--of horror, cruelty, and suffering but also of profound inspiration as they work toward renewal and toward the day their fierce determination is rewarded with productivity, prosperity, and lasting joy.

    Author Information
    Zainab Salbi, whose father was Saddam Hussein's pilot, spent her teen years as a palace insider in Iraq, until 1990, when her family sent her to the United States to escape the regime's brutal tyranny. She founded Women for Women International in Washington, D.C., and has published a memoir. Women for Women International, a non-profit organization with more than 127,000 supporters, has raised millions of dollars to help over 70,000 women in warring nations learn to support themselves and reinvigorate their economies by providing the tools and resources needed to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency.
