BOOK EXCERPT:

Jerusalem lies at the end of an ancient Roman road, a city swathed in light and sorrow. Coming to Jerusalem to fulfill her grandfather's dying wish, Eve Cavell finds herself poised on the seam of three worlds — Muslim, Christian, and Jewish. Inspired rather than frightened by the ghosts and warring children that surround her, Eve emerges from mourning to a life larger for its dangers. The lost and alone — an Australian street preacher; a handsome apathetic Palestinian; an alienated Israeli investigator; and others — beat a path to her door. Soon she attracts the attention of Mozes Koenig, an elderly Hungarian author in search of a heroine. Eve, with her lodestar eyes and solitary dance, captivates the old man's imagination, and together they create an opus to humanity in a city made of stone.

BOOK EXCERPT:

One book, two tales, one story; A Tale of Two Deserts is a literary work most unusual. Consisting of two very enigmatic tales set in two deserts separated by two thousand years, the book speaks to the contemporary world of that which is in danger of being lost, and warns of the dangerous and damaging delusions that are condemning humanity to a bleak future. The desert of the first tale, being a desert literal, is a place where people have very little, but most of that which matters. The desert of the second tale is a desert figurative, where people, dominated by collective delusions, seemingly have everything but, in fact, little of what truly matters. And running across both tales is a narrative that binds these two tales into one story; but it is for the reader to discover this narrative. Deeply rooted in concern for the future of humanity, A Tale of Two Deserts is a profoundly spiritual book that speaks of the need for humanity to walk a different path, and to abandon the ideological perspectives that have turned science, religion and western industrial capitalism into self-imposed prisons of the mind. Here in this book, the reader will find a world-view that does not close up in fixed opinions, and an invitation to begin to learn that, of matters most profound, humankind is truly ignorant. A Tale of Two Deserts is a message that there is still hope for humanity, hope that rests on people beginning to embrace what is, in essence, a spiritual perspective of life as a never-ending journey where there are no final destinations.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Egypt under the Romans (30 BCE–3rd century CE) was a period when local deserts experienced an unprecedented flurry of activity. In the Eastern Desert, a marked increase in desert traffic came from imperial prospecting/quarrying activities and caravans transporting wares to and from the Red Sea ports. In the Western Desert, resilient camels slowly became primary beasts of burden in desert travel, enabling caravaneers to lengthen daily marching distances across previously inhospitable dunes. Desert road archaeology has used satellite imaging, landscape studies and network analysis to plot desert trail networks with greater accuracy; however, it is often difficult to date roadside installations and thus assess how these networks evolved in scope and density in reaction to climatic, social and technological change. Roads in the Deserts of Roman Egypt examines evidence for desert roads in Roman Egypt and assesses Roman influence on the road density in two select desert areas: the central and southern section of the Eastern Desert and the central Marmarican Plateau and discusses geographical and social factors influencing road use in the period, demonstrating that Roman overseers of these lands adapted remarkably well to local desert conditions, improving roads and developing the trail network. Crucially, the author reconceptualises desert trails as linear corridor structures that follow expedient routes in the desert landscape, passing through at least two functional nodes attracting human traffic, be those water sources, farmlands, mines/quarries, trade hubs, military installations or actual settlements. The ‘route of least resistance’ across the desert varied from period to period according to the available road infrastructure and beasts of burden employed. Roman administration in Egypt not only increased the density of local desert ‘node’ networks, but also facilitated internodal connections with camel caravans and transformed the Sahara by establishing new, or embellishing existing, nodes, effectively funnelling desert traffic into discernible corridors.Significantly, not all desert areas of Egypt are equally suited for anthropogenic development, but almost all have been optimised in one way or another, with road installations built for added comfort and safety of travellers. Accordingly, the study of how Romans successfully adapted to desert travel is of wider significance to the study of deserts and ongoing expansion due to global warming.

BOOK EXCERPT:

At the moment when I was sealing my vows with a gentle kiss, to which Atala at this time made but a feeble resistance, a rapid stream of lightning, followed by a tremendous clap of thunder, filled all the forest with sulphur and light, and shivered a tree at our feet. We fled, trembling with fright. But oh, wonderful! in the calm which succeeded this shock, we head the sound of a bell!We both stood speechless and listened to this noise, so extraordinary in such a wilderness... from AtalaNow considered the father of French literary Romanticism, Fran ois-Ren Chateaubriand was still unknown as an author when he published Atala in 1801, but the sensation it caused skyrocketed him to fame.The story of doomed Indian lovers in 17th-century America, where Catholicism was taking hold and beginning to impassion natives, it is a celebration of nature and innocence, romance and religious feeling.Hard to find in print, this classic of the fiction of early America is essential reading for anyone seeking a deeper appreciation of 19th-century literature.French writer, diplomat, and politician FRAN OIS-REN, VICOMTE DE CHATEAUBRIAND (1768 1848) is also the author of Ren (1802) and Les Martyrs (1809), among other works. A passionate epicure, he lent his name to the cut of beef tenderloin now known as Chateaubriand.
