The King has two choices—follow the rules, or follow his heart. The strapping, fearsome King isn’t interested in bringing an heir into the kingdom through his controlling Queen, Amira, or his snobby mistress, Tiana. Their constant battle of “winning” his firstborn child only pushes him into the laundry room where he meets someone who makes him forget all about tradition. She’s stunning, down-to earth, and everything he needs right now. Even if she does tease him a little. Zara isn’t interested in just laundry. The King’s vast power scares many, but Zara isn’t afraid.

Though, she can’t believe he would ever be interested in a quiet, lowly maid like her. Then Zara is removed from the palace and the Queen sets into action a deadly plot to claim the King’s firstborn child. Will Zara be able to save her King, or will he have to sacrifice his happiness for the sake of tradition?

Book Short Summary:

This book, the first full-length cross-period comparison of medieval and modern literature, offers cutting edge research into the textual and cultural legacy of the Middle Ages: a significant and growing area of scholarship. At the juncture of literary, cultural and gender studies, and capitalizing on a renewed interest in popular western representations of the Islamic east, this book proffers innovative case studies on representations of cross-religious and cross-cultural romantic relationships in a selection of late medieval and twenty-first century Orientalist popular romances. Comparing the tropes, characterization and settings of these literary phenomena, and focusing on gender, religion, and ethnicity, the study exposes the historical roots of current romance representations of the east, advancing research in Orientalism, (neo)medievalism and medieval cultural studies. Fundamentally, Representing Difference invites a closer look at medieval and modern popular attitudes towards the east, as represented in romance, and the kinds of solutions proposed for its apparent problems.

Book Short Summary:

This book traces the roots of modern-day Kashmir and the role of Sheikh Abdullah in its making. As the most influential political figurehead in twentieth-century Kashmir, he played a crucial role in its transformation from a kingdom to a state in independent India. He was enigmatic and complex, to say the least. Following his meteoric rise, he dominated the political scene for more than 50 years, with enduring impact. The volume presents a keen analysis of pre-Independence events which led to the emergence of a controversial and confused identity of the region. It also looks at other major themes in the political life of Kashmir, including the formation of the Muslim Conference, the plebiscite movement and the Kashmir Accord. A major intervention in the political life of South Asia, this book presents an inside-view of the history of modern Kashmir through the life and times of Sheikh Abdullah. It will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of politics, history, and modern South Asia.

Book Short Summary:

“Riveting . . . Well-written and highly compelling."—Wall Street Journal ​“Truly thrilling. Daniel Levin brilliantly conveys both the menace and the evil of Middle Eastern intrigue, and some victories of human kindness over cruelty and despair.”—Daniel Kahneman, New York Times bestselling author of Thinking, Fast and Slow Daniel Levin was in his New York office when he got a call from an acquaintance with an urgent, cryptic request to meet in Paris. A young man had gone missing in Syria. No government, embassy, or intelligence agency would help. Could he? Would he? So begins a suspenseful, shocking, and at times brutal true story of one man’s search to find a miss­ing person in Syria over twenty tense days. Levin, a lawyer turned armed-conflict negotia­tor, chases leads throughout the Middle East, meeting with powerful sheikhs, drug lords, and sex traffickers in his pursuit of the truth. In Proof of Life, Levin dives deep into the shadows—an underground industry of war where everything is for sale, including arms, drugs, and even people. He offers a fasci­nating study of how people use leverage to get what they want from one another and of a place where no one does a favor without wanting something in return, whether it’s immediately or years down the road. A fast-paced thriller wrapped in a memoir, Proof of Life is a cinematic must-read by an author with access to a world that usually remains hidden.

Book Short Summary:

Amidst political upheaval and the decline of the Ottoman Empire, the State of Kuwait emerged as an independent country under British protection in 1899, with Sheikh Mubarak Al Sabah widely accredited as the instrument of its foundation. But the path to power for Mubarak was not a simple or smooth one. The author here presents an original perspective on the difficulties and controversies surrounding Mubarak's ascension. With unparalleled insights and access to original sources she reveals the life, personality and politics of a man who, determined to secure a distinctive Kuwaiti state, helped to shape the modern Middle East. This biography provides a comprehensive overview of a time of significant political and social change in the Gulf when development, diplomacy, economics, finance and trade were both routes to political independence and the perpetuation of British domination. Remembered for his unyielding determination to boost the profile and wealth of Kuwait and establish his leadership at a turbulent time of regional war, Mubarak engineered major change for Kuwait. From the negotiations of the 1899 Anglo-Kuwait Agreement, during which Mubarak sought to outfox Lord Curzon and other British officials, to his ambitions to tame tribal politics, the author here presents a unique portrait of the man who transformed Kuwait from an Ottoman sub-province to an independent state.

Book Short Summary:

This study of a thirteenth-century dwelling on Egypt's Red Sea Coast draws on multiple lines of evidence--including texts excavated at the site--to reconstruct a history of the structure and the people who dwelt within. The inhabitants participated in Nile Valley-Red Sea-Indian Ocean trade, transported Ḥāǧǧ pilgrims, sent grain to Mecca and Medina, and wrote sermons and amulets for the local faithful. These activities are detailed in the documents and fleshed out in the botanical, faunal, artifact, and stratigraphic evidence from the University of Chicago's excavations (1978-82). This compound eventually consisted of two houses and a row of storerooms and became the center of mercantile activity at Quseir al-Qadim. Over time, as the number of named individuals who received shipping notes addressed to the "warehouse of Abū Mufarij" increased, living rooms and storerooms were added to accommodate this expansion of commerce. While most merchants were dealing in textiles, dates, and grains, additional commodities traded included perfumes, gemstone-decorated textiles, resist-dyed textiles, and porcelains. Specialist studies by Steven Goodman on the avian faunal remains and Wilma Wetterstrom on the macrobotanical finds reveal that the compound's occupants enjoyed a diet of chicken and Nile Valley produce such as grapes and watermelon, and they were supplemented by high-priced imports: nuts and fruits from around the Mediterranean, along with medicinal plants from as far away as India, indicate the wealth and status of this family of merchants. The evidence from this small portion of Quseir al-Qadim yields a rich local story that is a microcosm of Nile Valley-Red Sea-Indian Ocean trade under the last Ayyubid sultans of Egypt.

Book Short Summary:

The Desert Healer (1923) is a romance novel by English author E.M. Hull. Hull’s novel The Sheikh (1919) sold millions of copies following the release of a 1921 film of the same name. Part of a tradition of Orientalist fiction, The Desert Healer, alongside The Sheik and its sequel, The Sons of the Sheik (1925), have proven both controversial and popular, and now serve as a reminder of the ways in which British subjects imagined themselves in relation to the colonial world. Abandoned by his wife, heartbroken at the loss of his child, Carew has taken to the desert to work as a mercenary, healer, and mediator between local authority figures. Content to live as a shadow of his former self, Carew forsakes Western civilization for the limitlessness and anonymity of the Algerian desert. Journeying on horseback one day, he hears the screams of a woman in the midst of being kidnapped, and reluctantly saves her life. Disheveled and barely conscious, Marny Gerardine, an Englishwoman, asks for her savior’s name. Pretending to be an Arab, Carew maintains his disguise and, after a night spent resting in his shelter, brings the woman home to Algiers. There, she fears the return of her abusive husband Clyde, who will find a way—as always—to blame her for the attack. Recalling the kindness of her gentle rescuer, she wonders if he is thinking of her, if they will see one another once more. The Desert Healer is romance novel by a master of English popular fiction. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of E.M. Hull’s The Desert Healer is a classic of English romance fiction reimagined for modern readers.

Both are seniors at the private school. Zabi gets a letter, seemingly from her father, which tells her she has been married off to some Arabian sheik. Arranged marriages of girls in Islamic Iran are allowed, starting when a girl is at least thirteen years old. Colette tells Zabi that she needs to go out to her father’s ranch in Wyoming to hide. While Zabi is having lunch with Colette’s parents in Cheyenne, Wyoming, Zabi’s iPhone starts buzzing. Zabi and Colette’s parents hear that Colette is being captured by two Iranian men because they couldn’t find Zabi at the private school.

Book Short Summary:

With a client list hotter than the Zubran desert, wedding planner Avery Scott shouldn't be surprised that her latest client is Crown Prince Malik of Zubran—the man who once lit her body on fire…before steamrollering over her heart. Determined to ignore Malik's lethal charm, Avery makes a very personal not-to-do list: 1. Not being Malik's intended, our relationship must remain 100 percent professional. 2. His arranged bride might have run away, but I mustn't distract him—for the kings of Zubran, duty always comes first. 3. However luxurious the Bedouin tent—and smoldering the tension—pride dictates the touch I crave stays strictly forbidden.

Book Short Summary:

This book presents an analysis of the slavery and manumission practiced in the Persian Gulf region in the first half of the 20th century. It is unique as it exposes the life stories of several hundred slaves, speaking with their own voices. A striking aspect of the majority of studies on slavery is that they provide the reader with excellent statistics and describe the mechanism of enslavement, the routes of slave trading, and the economic and social conditions of enslaved people, but slaves themselves generally remain anonymous. The premise of this book is to give voice directly to the slaves by presenting in full-length their statements made at the British Agencies in Kuwait, Bahrain, Muscat, Sharjah, and Bushire. Altogether around 1,000 statements were made by slaves asking for manumission certificates, and the analysis of these statements sheds light on various aspects of social, economic and political life on the Arabian shore of the Gulf. Given that it uncovers new aspects of the every-day life of the Arabian Peninsula, this book will also be of help to people of this region who are looking for their roots.
