Book News Annotation:

Thirty natives and Westerners relate their experiences dealing with people, events, and situations in the day-to-day Islamic world from Egypt to Iran. Among the topics are dancing at the Blood Festival, serendipity in Cyprus, gridlocked Tehran at gunpoint, and Holy Land blues. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Encounters with the Middle East collects 30 rich, engaging travel stories that capture uplifting scenes from everyday life and deliver sensitive, bittersweet renderings of people and landscapes often shaken by conflict. This book, with black and white photographs throughout, features original takes on commonplace "things to do" for the traveler in the Middle East — from marveling at the brilliance of the bazaars to drifting down the Nile in a felucca. It also provides intimate portrayals of people and traditions too often absent from books on the region.
