About the Book

"A unique and provocative journey revealing a subculture that, until now, has been kept carefully hidden from the outside world. Following Saudi Arabia Exposed and Inside Egypt, John R. Bradley sets his sights on an even more controversial topic: the business and culture of sex in the Middle East. Among many startling revelations, Behind the Veil of Vice reports on how "temporary" Islamic marriages allow for illicit sex in the theocracies of Iran and Saudi Arabia; "child brides" that are sold off to older Arab men according to ancient tribal traditions; the corruption and hypocrisy that undermine crackdowns on the thriving sex industry in the Persian Gulf; and how, despite widespread denial, homosexuality is still deeply ingrained in the region's social fabric. Richly detailed and nuanced, Behind the Veil of Vice is the first book published on the Middle East's biggest secret"--Provided by publisher.

"A fascinating journey through the underbelly of the Middle East, exposing a secret world as shocking as it is pervasive"-- Provided by publisher.
