<b><i>The Monk of Mokha </i>is the exhilarating true story of a young Yemeni American man, raised in San Francisco, who dreams of resurrecting the ancient art of Yemeni coffee but finds himself trapped in Sana’a by civil war.</b><br /><br /> Mokhtar Alkhanshali is twenty-four and working as a doorman when he discovers the astonishing history of coffee and Yemen’s central place in it. He leaves San Francisco and travels deep into his ancestral homeland to tour terraced farms high in the country’s rugged mountains and meet beleagured but determined farmers. But when war engulfs the country and Saudi bombs rain down, Mokhtar has to find a way out of Yemen without sacrificing his dreams or abandoning his people.

Three years into a financial crisis that shows no sign of loosening its grip, a young couple make the unpopular decision to teach English in Saudi Arabia. The choice of Saudi Arabia is based primarily on the best salary offer, an all expenses paid round trip flight and secondarily to satiate a desire to explore a country steeped in mystery and taboo. Little do they know that the experience will come with a price and change their lives in a profound way, witnessing human rights violations that go unchecked even up to today and an ultra-conservative culture wrestling with tradition and modernity.<br /><br />A Year Under Sharia Law is written as a travel memoir with vignettes of daily life and interactions with the community at large. It was also written to shine a spotlight on the plight of impoverished ladies who come to Saudi Arabia in the hopes of earning a salary to send money back to their family. They find work as nannies and house maids primarily. These ladies are often stripped of their rights in a patriarchy that makes them prime targets for unspeakable abuses. Their passports are held by their Saudi employees and they essentially become prisoners. This memoir is not only dedicated to them and their plight but also the tireless and dangerous work done by journalists who are critical of Saudi Arabia’s human rights record. Some have paid the ultimate price.

A trip to the Holy Land is on the bucket list of many Christians. But planning a meaningful trip in a place so filled with significant sites is an imposing task.

So how can a Christian traveler prepare a trip that will illuminate God's Word and reveal the Lord's presence? <BR><BR>In <i>The Holy Land for Christian Travelers, </i>John A. Beck provides a guide to the Holy Land for Christians with explanations of the biblical significance of important sites. The entries provide key Scripture references for reflection and a guide to the land that will encourage communion with God and a genuine spiritual experience for travelers as they walk in the footsteps of Jesus. A trip to the Holy Land can be a worship-filled, once-in-a-lifetime spiritual journey. This book puts a biblical scholar and experienced Holy Land guide at the reader's side.

Enno Lenze ist Politiker, Hacker, Aktivist und Unternehmer. In Berlin leitet er einen Verlag und ein Museum. Aber seine größte Leidenschaft verfolgt er nach Dienstschluss: Er engagiert sich für Kurdistan. Eine Region, in der Geschichte geschrieben wird. 2011 bereiste er das Gebiet zum ersten Mal. In den Grenzregionen zwischen Syrien, Irak, Iran und der Türkei lernte er hochrangige Politiker und Generäle<br />kennen.<br /><br />Seitdem ist er überzeugt: Was in Kurdistan passiert, betrifft die Welt. Und Deutschland. Ob im Kampf gegen den IS, in der Türkeipolitik oder der Flüchtlingsfrage: Das Verständnis von Kurdistan ist die Grundlage für das Verständnis unserer gegenwärtigen Politik.<br /><br />In Fronturlaub nimmt Lenze Sie mit auf seine Reisen. Er beschreibt eindrücklich und bildhaft seine Erfahrungen an der IS-Front und seine Begegnungen mit den Menschen und der Kultur vor Ort und erzählt von tragischen Schicksalen: von Familien, die durch den islamistischen Terror auseinandergerissen wurden, aber auch von Menschen, die bereit sind, für ihren Traum von Freiheit und Unabhängigkeit zu sterben.

Customer Reviews
Innocents Abroad is a travel book which humorously chronicles the trip Twain called his "Great Pleasure Excursion," on board the chartered vessel Quaker City through Europe and the Holy Land in 1867. The excursion was billed as a Holy Land expedition, with numerous stops and side trips along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, such as the train excursion from Marseille to Paris for the 1867 Paris Exhibition during the reign of Napoleon III and the Second French Empire, a journey through the Papal States to Rome, a side trip through the Black Sea to Odessa, and finally culminating in an excursion through the Holy Land. Twain recorded his observations and critiques of the various aspects of culture and society which he encountered on the journey, some more serious than others. Many of his observations draw a contrast between his own experiences and the often grandiose accounts in contemporary travelogues, which were regarded in their own time as indispensable aids for traveling in the region.<br />Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He is best known for his two novels – The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, but his satirical stories and travel books are also widely popular. His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned him praise from critics and peers. He was lauded as the greatest American humorist of his age.
