Although only half the size of Wales, Lebanon offers extraordinary diversity. Here, some of the oldest human settlements in the world at the Phoenician ports of Tyre, Sidon and Byblos sit alongside modern Beirut, popular for its cuisine, eclectic nightlife and mosaic of peoples. In Lebanon's second city, Tripoli, busy medieval souks are watched over by a vast Crusader castle. Outside the city, snow-capped mountains and the lush Qadisha Valley with its snaking river and waterfalls provide entertainment for skiers and hikers, while the Mediterranean Sea draws sun and watersports enthusiasts. Bradt's Lebanon provides detailed cultural and practical information to this increasingly popular destination. It also provides in-depth historical and religious background enabling visitors to travel with awareness and sensitivity.

Whispers And Screams

Seventeen short stories and novelettes compose Whispers and Screams. While these stories are from the realms of horror, science fiction, and fantasy, they are also stories about people, about loneliness, insanity, love, politics, philosophy, food, power, about human feelings and behavior in these dynamic times. A large number of the protagonists are minorities or women. Many of the stories owe their heritage to the black-and-white horror movies of the late thirties and forties and the B-grade science fiction of the fifties. “Proteus Rex” is about a genetically engineered life-form that adapts the attributes of animals (a lion’s strength, a bird’s wings) or whatever his survival needs and infinite appetites dictate. Having consumed all the animal life in a small rural community, he begins to eat people. Much of the story is about the local authority’s attempt to identify and apprehend this menace, a significant challenge as Proteus Rex is an extradimensional being that can change his size to as small as an amoeba to as large as a blue whale. “Proteus Rex” is populated by a deep cast of characters, only a few of whom manage not to get eaten. Imagine the actress Lucy Liu portraying Ian Fleming’s most shrewd creation, James Bond, 007. Only she’s working for TSA—the Teleportation Security Administration—three hundred years in the future. This is after World War VI, and the United States has been fractured into several independent nations. The two Koreas have united and is running the world. Executive Action Officer Sun Park’s mission is to capture or neutralize the perpetrators that sent and detonated an atomic bomb in the TSA X-port Freight Hub in Buenos Aires. This is the premise of “The Price of a Dog,” an action-driven novella, a political science fiction thriller. In the short story “Slaves of the Cat Goddess,” Buster, the main character (and stooge of General Wanamaker), is charged to take the mysterious cat Bast to a secret research base. Bast’s size and ferocity force a crash landing on an uncharted tropical island inhabited by cannibals. Knowing that it was Buster who was responsible for her mutation, Bast not only protects him in this hostile world, but she sees that he is elevated, serving as the ambassador between the goddess Bast and the humanity she would enslave.

In this stark, unsettling novel, set in a Mexican prison, present-day events resonate with the ancient history and wisdom of the Maya. Graham Greene meets Carlos Castaneda. In the central Yucatan a group of Maya Indian workers revolt against the corrupt oligarchy of government, business, the official union, and the press. Two young men—a traditional Maya leader and a Mexican-American lawyer—are drawn into ever deeper commitment to the struggle. When they are caught in a trap and thrown into jail, the lawyer declares a hunger strike. The story of the Maya workers, and of their village, is narrated in a series of vivid flashbacks that alternate with the grim deprivations and interrogations in the prison. Day by day, the young lawyer approaches death, and in his discussions with his friend and cell mate, there emerge two different definitions of love, loyalty, and courage, each man's version determined by the culture from which he springs. One of the chief delights of this rich, intense storytelling is the introduction it provides to the Maya understanding of time, medicine, and proper behavior. Although everything that happens in the novel could have appeared in the latest news stories out of Mexico, nothing happens quite as expected, and the startling conclusion could only have taken place in the Yucatan.

For more than a decade, Katherine Zoepf has lived in or traveled throughout the Arab world, reporting on the lives of women, whose role in the region has never been more in flux. Only a generation ago, female adolescence as we know it in the West did not exist in the Middle East. There were only children and married women. Today, young Arab women outnumber men in universities, and a few are beginning to face down religious and social tradition in order to live independently, to delay marriage, and to pursue professional goals. Hundreds of thousands of devout girls and women are attending Qur’anic schools—and using the training to argue for greater rights and freedoms from an Islamic perspective. And, in 2011, young women helped to lead antigovernment protests in the Arab Spring. But their voices have not been heard. Their stories have not been told. In Syria, before its civil war, she documents a complex society in the midst of soul searching about its place in the world and about the role of women. In Lebanon, she documents a country that on the surface is freer than other Arab nations but whose women must balance extreme standards of self-presentation with Islamic codes of virtue. In Abu Dhabi, Zoepf reports on a generation of Arab women who’ve found freedom in work outside the home. In Saudi Arabia she chronicles driving protests and women entering the retail industry for the first time. In the aftermath of Tahrir Square, she examines the crucial role of women in Egypt's popular uprising. Deeply informed, heartfelt, and urgent, Excellent Daughters brings us a new understanding of the changing Arab societies—from 9/11 to Tahrir Square to the rise of ISIS—and gives voice to the remarkable women at the forefront of this change. From the Hardcover edition.
