In 1987, a book was published by Betty Mahmoody titled "Not Without My Daughter." In it she claimed that she had been kidnapped and held like a prisoner by her husband in Iran. The book was compelling and made into a movie of the same name. This volume, written by the husband and father of their daughter, talks of a once happy family's collapse and his search for meaning in his life. It is also a cultural and political history of Iran, from the revolution to present. It is, more than anything, an exercise in truth, the last-ditch effort of a father desperate to reach his daughter, to let her know that he is not the monster he has been portrayed to be. Dr. Mahmoody worked in America for more than twenty years and had a successful practice. In 1984 the family mooved to Iran; he never remarried after Betty left him, and he passed away unexpectedly in August 2010.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 153 pages
