Announcing Deca #7: Godfathers and Thieves, by Elizabeth Dickinson
Announcing Story No. 7:
Godfathers and Thieves
In Godfathers and Thieves, Gulf-based journalist Elizabeth Dickinson, author of the acclaimed Who Shot Ahmed, describes how an underground network of Syrian exiles moved millions of dollars of medicine, clothes, and weapons from the high-rises of Dubai to the frontlines of Damascus. Informed by nearly fifty interviews in half a dozen countries, it's the story of how a diaspora crowdfunded a revolution—and was itself imperiled and ultimately transformed. Starting today, Godfathers and Thieves is available for download on phones, Kindles, iPads, and any Web browser.
