Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for FOR THE LOVE OF A CHILD, by Betty Mahmoody.

"Mahmoody's bestselling 'Not Without My Daughter' and a film version publicized her flight, with her daughter Mahbot, from her husband, who held both captive in Iran. By 1986, mother and child were safe back home in Michigan, where Mahmoody began to help other parents, less fortunate than she, recover their stolen children. The result is this book. The writing partnership with lawyer Dunchock led to their promoting legislation on behalf of families who have been forcibly separated. Recounted in harrowing detail, stories about fathers and mothers trying to locate young sons and daughters testify to the enormity of the problem, which cries out for better cooperation among nations. This is urgently needed, perhaps less for grieving parents than for their children."
- Publisher's Weekly

"Those who empathized with Mahmoody's thrilling account of her harrowing escape from Iran, where her marriage deprived her of the protection of U.S. law, will want to read this sequel. After returning to the United States, Mahmoody found that her experience was far from unique--that a multitude of foreign spouses have spirited away their children and virtually held them prisoner. Her new book is a compilation of such cases. Most are not as lucky as Mahmoody, and she devotes much time informing people about international parental abductions and the lack of laws to cover them. Although some international conventions have been signed, they lack adequate means of enforcement, and the right of children to remain in the place they call home is not always respected. Congress has yet to act at all. An excellent purchase for public libraries."
