Dining With Al-Qaeda
Three Decades Exploring the Many Worlds of the Middle EastBook - 2010 | 1st ed
Following in the footsteps of Sir Richard Burton and Lawrence of Arabia, Pope's explorations of the people, politics, religion, and culture of Islamic nations shows there is no such thing as a monolithic "Muslim world." His probing and often perilous journeys--at one point he is forced to quote Koranic verse to argue against his being murdered by a top al-Qaeda leader--provide an eye-opening look at diverse societies often misportrayed by superficial reporting and why-they-hate-us politics.
