Horrendous news from the Middle East daily fills our newspapers and screens. How can we begin to understand what drives people to treat each other as they do? 'Medieval' is a word often used.

LIVING WITH ARABS is an account of nine years spent visiting and living among the Bedouin tribes of Petra in Southern Jordan; in some ways a world away from the neighbouring war zones. Through insightful accounts of day-to-day life, a world of nobility and simplicity is revealed: so too is a world of violence, gender imbalance, the significance of Islam and thereby, a greater understanding of how our Moslem neighbours live and think.
