Perception Wars: Iraq From the Outside In
This book is Metti’s journey to Iraq under extraordinary family circumstances. It describes personal and academic challenges he encountered by the need to acclimate to a new language and culture. This story is also a depiction of cultural rejection aggravated by assimilation issues: He was compelled to live in places not of his choosing; to master a tongue alien to his childhood; and to feel out of place every time he stepped outside the hospitable and generous embrace of his extended Iraqi family into the corporal punishment landmines of Iraqi education.
