Dining with al-Qaeda

Hugh Popes recently released book Dining with al-Qaeda is a memoir of three decades spent in the Middle East, starting as a naive and romantic student of Persian and Arabic, learning the hard way about the region's concrete cities, wars and dislocation, and then finding it impossible to convey this reality to readers of American newspapers. A longtime foreign correspondent in the region, most recently with the Wall Street Journal, Pope presents his modern-day explorations of the politics, religion, and aspirations of Muslim peoples—mined from libraries, bazaars and war fronts—and shows how the Middle East is much more than a monolithic "Islamic World."
