The Middle East conflict originated, literally, in the womb of a beautiful woman –Rebekah, Isaac’s wife. Her ‘struggling’ twins, from their mother’s womb, have often engaged in a love/hate embrace, scorching their lands with periodic eruptions of bloody conflicts. Their descendants, though gradually lost their identity, have spread their struggle for ‘the global inheritance’ into Europe, the Americas, and elsewhere. The march of Islam, of Muhammad,“the man of the sword”; the present Jew/arab conflict; the Persian Gulf menace; fanatic Islamic world terrorism and their main target – the West – are a direct result of the twins’ struggle, which begun while in their mother’s womb. Human history and its future can’t be fully comprehended without correct understanding of the roots and turbulent history of the struggling twins. You, the reader, are destined, regardless of your ethnic background and religion, to soon experience the final consequences and glorious triumph of this age-long bloody conflict. Through the pages of this work the author takes you on a fascinating journey of the Biblical and historic records, which faithfully traced the stormy blazing trails of ‘the struggling twins,’from the inception of the conflict to its glorious ‘final solution.’

Newly married, Chris and Susanna Naylor set off for a new life in the Arab world - living first in Kuwait, then Jordan and finally Lebanon. In a region never far from the news, they discovered their expectations - of war, terrorism, desert sand dunes, men in white robes and veiled women, camels and Kalashnikovs, indeed their own reasons for being there - were to be constantly challenged. As they found out, the reality bore little resemblance to their pre-conceptions. Postcards from the Middle East is a tale of love from one family's experiences: a story of work, schooling, friendships, worship and shared family life, lived out in precious communities against a back drop of world-changing events and spectacular scenery. The Naylors had never experienced such hospitality, danger, wildlife spectacles or snow before they moved to the Middle East. Their story provides a multi-coloured window on an extraordinary and rapidly changing Arab world.

“[A] ground-breaking collection of wonderful pilafs, soups, stuffed vegetables, relishes and pastries. A treasury of delicious dishes” (The Foodie). Every one of the twelve cookbooks Arto der Haroutunian wrote became a classic; his thoughtful, erudite writing helped to explain to Westerners the subtlety, complexity and diversity of Middle Eastern and North African cooking. Vegetarian Dishes from the Middle East shows how the cooking of vegetables is treated with reverence in the lands that make up the rich and varied tapestry of the Middle East. The people depend on the grains and pulses, nuts, vegetables and fruits of the region for their daily food. Here are warm and spicy stuffed vegetables, cool and fragrant soups, delicate preserves, pilafs, breads, pickles, relishes, and pastries. “This book will give a real boost to any vegetarian food enthusiast looking for something a little more unusual.” —The Vegetarian “One of the classic cookbooks on the subject written by the recognized authority in Middle Eastern cooking.” —Publishing News “Learn how to make a variety of feasts from just a few ingredients with this authentic collection of recipes, including popular dishes such as tabouleh, hummus and falafel, as well as new ones you may not have tried.” —The Green Parent “The recipes . . . glow. They openly embrace the full spectrum of ethical eating, but most importantly, this is a book of delicious, exquisite food; simple to make [yet] exotic enough to tempt jaded palates.” —The Gastronomer’s Bookshelf

The Making Of The Medieval Middle East

A bold new religious history of the late antique and medieval Middle East that places ordinary Christians at the center of the story In the second half of the first millennium CE, the Christian Middle East fractured irreparably into competing churches and Arabs conquered the region, setting in motion a process that would lead to its eventual conversion to Islam. Jack Tannous argues that key to understanding these dramatic religious transformations are ordinary religious believers, often called “the simple” in late antique and medieval sources. Largely agrarian and illiterate, these Christians outnumbered Muslims well into the era of the Crusades, and yet they have typically been invisible in our understanding of the Middle East’s history. What did it mean for Christian communities to break apart over theological disagreements that most people could not understand? How does our view of the rise of Islam change if we take seriously the fact that Muslims remained a demographic minority for much of the Middle Ages? In addressing these and other questions, Tannous provides a sweeping reinterpretation of the religious history of the medieval Middle East. This provocative book draws on a wealth of Greek, Syriac, and Arabic sources to recast these conquered lands as largely Christian ones whose growing Muslim populations are properly understood as converting away from and in competition with the non-Muslim communities around them.

Moveable Feasts

Today the average meal has traveled thousands of miles before reaching the dinner table. How on earth did this happen? In fact, long-distance food is nothing new and, since the earliest times, the things we eat and drink have crossed countries and continents. Through delightful anecdotes and astonishing facts, Moveable Feasts tells their stories. For the ancient Romans, the amphora---a torpedo-shaped pot that fitted snugly into the ship's hold---was the answer to moving millions of tons of olive oil from Spain to Italy. Napoleon offered a reward to anyone who could devise a way of preserving and transporting food for soldiers. (What he got was the tin can.) Today temperature-controlled shipping containers allow companies to send their frozen salmon to China, where it's thawed, filleted, refrozen, and sent back to the United States for sale in supermarkets as "fresh" Atlantic salmon. Combining history, science, and politics, Financial Times writer Sarah Murray provides a fascinating glimpse into the extraordinary odysseys of food from farm to fork. She encounters everything from American grain falling from United Nations planes in Sudan to Mumbai's tiffin men who, using only bicycles, carts, and their feet, deliver more than 170,000 lunches a day. Following the items on a grocery store shopping list, Murray shows how the journeys of food have brought about seismic shifts in economics, politics, and even art. By flying food into Berlin during the 1948 airlift, the Allies kept a city of more than two million alive for more than a year and secured their first Cold War victory, appealing to German hearts and minds---and stomachs. In nineteenth-century Buffalo, the grain elevator (a giant mechanical scooping machine) not only turned the city into one of America's wealthiest, but it also had a profound influence on modern architecture, giving Bauhaus designers an important source of inspiration. In a thought-provoking and highly entertaining account, Moveable Feasts brings an entirely fresh perspective to the subject of food. And today, as global warming makes headlines and concerns mount about the "food miles" clocked by our dinners, Murray poses a contentious question: Is buying local always the most sustainable, ethical choice?

Not just a recipe book but a comprehensive survey of culinary delights from the eastern Indian state of Orissa, better known for the architectural splendors of its ancient temples in Konarak and Puri. The author speaks of her own experience in the context of the food she describes meticulously documented by her as she passes through her grandmother's kitchen to her mother's overseen by the family cook. The little anecdotes that accompany some of the recipes provide an unusual glimpse into the middle-class Indian existence the author experienced while growing up in that vast and fascinating country. Comparing and contrasting the techniques refined over generations, with that from diverse and distant cultures, augmented with an extensive bibliography, the book should appeal to a wide spectrum of readers-from the faltering beginner to the serious cook. An unusual chapter on the family cook's contribution might make the orthodox in you squirm but nevertheless offers a glimpse into the evolution of "restaurant-food" in urban Orissa. A scientist by training, the author injects her own scientific-humor into the writing that also makes the book an amusing read.
