in which J.M.N. Jeffries exposes the real authors and progenitors of the Balfour Declaration, along with
their personal stories, motives, conspiracies, and political aims.The author also details the other international
players who were involved in the creation of the “Balfour” document, and offers a clearsighted perspective

state of terror
how terrorism created Modern israel
by Thomas Suarez
his new book shows how the use of terror by supporters of the idea of a Jewish state in Palestine was
systematic, routine, and accepted by Jewish leaders as necessary to achieve their aims. At the height of
the British Mandate in Palestine, terrorist acts were carried out at a frequency and with an intensity that
has been largely forgotten, even though daily newspaper headlines in the US, Britain, and Palestine spoke
of bombings, assassinations, and massacres against Arabs and British civilians, as well as soldiers. Suarez tells
this story using the terrorists’ own accounts in secret internal papers boasting of their successes, and quoting
from contemporary intelligence briefings and secret diplomatic correspondence.

politically incorrect
why a Jewish state is a bad idea
by Ofra Yeshua-Lyth
srael claims to be a modern democratic state, but Israeli writer Ofra Yeshua-Lyth reveals some startling
truths about modern day Israel: how although up to 70% of Israelis do not follow the Jewish religion, all
citizens are subject to laws designed to favor religious Israelis over all others. In matters of birth and death;
marriage and divorce; finance and the military, Israel’s rabbis exercise iron control over their government.
Yeshua-Lyth sees the seeds of Israel’s demise in the growing tension between Israelis who want
to lead modern secular lives, and those who wish Israel to continue in the iron grip of the rabbis. The
author’s arguments are woven through the story of her childhood and later life in Israel, illustrating the
conflicts between modern democracy and an outdated theocracy in everyday life.
I
OFRA YESHUA-LYTH is a veteran Israeli journalist and author. She served as a foreign correspondent
for the Israeli daily newspaper Maariv in Washington, DC and Germany.

DeMocratizing aMerica
shaf nader and the founding of an impossible college
by Dimitra Doukas
foreword by William G. Shannon, EdD; afterword by Ralph Nader
lready past its manufacturing heyday,Winsted, Connecticut, the Naders’ hometown, was wrecked by
the devastating 1955 flood. For Shaf Nader, Ralph's elder brother, the way to rebuild was by
democratizing knowledge. A community college, he envisioned, would turn the old town into a regional
hub of learning and creative citizenship. Impossible, people said, Winsted was too small, too gritty, too
depressed.Turning those attitudes around took genius, persistence, and an uncommon gift of persuasion.This
inspiring story is a close-up case study of grassroots change, and of a visionary leader who withstood ridicule
and disappointment long enough to show hard-headed New Englanders what they really agreed on.

orn in 1977, Tamim Al-Barghouti is probably one of the most widely read Palestinian poets of his
generation. His poetry readings are attended by thousands, sometimes packing stadiums and
amphitheaters.The poems in this collection were written in Cairo, Ramallah,Amman,Washington, DC and
Berlin between 1996 and 2016. Palestinian newspapers dubbed Al-Barghouti “The Poet of Jerusalem.”
His posters hang on the streets of Jerusalem and other Palestinian cities and sections of the poem “In
Jerusalem” have even become ring-tones blaring out from cell phones across the Arab world. On the
January 26, 2011, one day after the Egyptian Revolution that toppled President Hosni Mubarak, a

Just another JihaDi Jane
by Tabish Khair
novel about friendship, faith, and alienation, Just Another Jihadi Jane tells the tale of Islamist
radicalization from the inside.Two children of Muslim immigrants in England’s industrial north—
thoughtful Jamilla and rebellious Ameena—become best friends, and find in religion and social media
a community as welcoming and encouraging as their public education is estranging. After Jamilla’s
father dies and her brother marries, the two girls leave England and join the Islamist cause in Syria.The
intellectual and emotional poverty as well as the violence they find there creates a story as gripping as
it is heart-wrenching. As did All Quiet on the Western Front,Tabish Khair’s novel reminds a new generation
that heroism and sacrifice are not limited to one side in a conflict, and that the first victims of a
murderous regime are those who live within it.

Memoirs of a hidden observer
by Moustafa Khalifa
translated by Paul Starkey
his compelling first novel is the astonishing story of a Syrian political prisoner of conscience—an
atheist mistaken for a radical Islamist—who was locked up for 13 years without trial in one of the
most notorious prisons in the Middle East.The novel takes the form of a diary which Musa keeps in his
head and then writes down upon his release. In Tadmur prison, the mood is naturally bleak and yet often
very beautifully captured.The narrator, a young graduate, is defiant and stoical, and somehow able to pick
out humor and irony in the shocking events and characters he describes. Considered by many in the Arab
world to be a symbol of the Syrian opposition in the current civil war, this novel provides an essential
perspective on the tragedy the Syrian people are living through.

MUSTAFA KHALIFA is a Syrian novelist living in exile. Besides writing fiction, he is an eloquent and
insightful political commentator on the situation in his native country.

the ninety-ninth floor
by Jana Fawaz Elhassan
translated by Michelle Hartman
t times as cold and hard-edged as the skyscrapers in its backdrop, The Ninety-Ninth Floor follows the
struggles and triumphs of Majed as he makes it in Manhattan at the turn of the century, after
surviving the devastating 1982 massacre at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camp. A Palestinian born and
raised in Lebanon, Majed creates a new life for himself in the glittery world of New York City’s computer
games industry. But with all his success, Majed’s past continues to haunt him. His relationship with Hilda,
a Lebanese woman from a right-wing Christian family, exposes his innermost fears, worries, and dark
secrets. A multi-voiced narration, The Ninety-Ninth Floor conveys the brutality that war leaves on the
people who experience it. It is also a love story that asks questions about the ability of passion to overcome
hatred and difference.
A
JANA FAWAZ ELHASSAN is an award-winning novelist and short story writer from Lebanon. The

out west
travels through the american west—
past and present
by Tim Slessor
orking for the BBC, writer Tim Slessor has filmed and
traveled “out West” for years; and spent “a very happy year”
in western Nebraska. In this book, he selects beguiling stories that
range from the mountain men and their fur trade to the pioneers of
the overland trail, from Custer and the disaster at the Little Big Horn
to the last stand of the Sioux at Wounded Knee, from the early cowtowns and railroads to the cattle barons and the emigrant sod-busters.
Full of surprises and insights, Out West casts new and entertaining
light on the history and personalities of the American West.

first-entirely-by-land drive from the English Channel to Singapore.

great britain and ireland 2017
edited by Adam Raphael and M. Astella Saw
n the past quarter-century, The Good Hotel Guide has established a unique position as a reliable and
independent hotel guide, winning more media praise than any other on the market. It is written for the
reader seeking impartial advice on where to stay in Great Britain and Ireland. Hotels cannot buy their
entry, no money changes hands, and the editors and inspectors do not accept free hospitality during their
anonymous hotel stays.This year, The Good Hotel Guide proudly celebrates its 40th year of publication with
another careful selection of over 900 superb places to stay.
The guide specializes in hotels of individual character, mostly owner-managed, in outstanding
locations. Whether your taste runs to luxury castles or simple B&Bs, The Good Hotel Guide has the
answer. The entries are based on readers’ recommendations, and backed up by independent, expert
inspections. It is unusual in its ruthless independence and honesty. For those wanting a break from
chain-managed hotels, it is invaluable.

A CULTURAL GUIDE TO THIS
UNDERESTIMATED CITY
rankfurt’s role in the global financial markets often
obscures its importance as a historical and cultural center,
not just for Germany, but for Europe and the West as a whole.
At the dawn of the Renaissance, a tradition of printing and
publishing was established that lives on in today’s Frankfurt
Book Fair, and the German language’s most enduring author,
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, was born in the city.
Architecturally, too, the city has always been a pioneer.
Today, Frankfurt rivals Brussels, Berlin, Paris, and
London, yet retains a deeply provincial identity interwoven
with the thick forests and farming country of its Hessian
hinterland.

a cultural history
by Claudia Lightfoot
rom its humble birth as a few thatched huts along the shoreline,
Havana has emerged from five hundred years of turbulent history as
the most fascinating city in the Caribbean. Claudia Lightfoot explores
Havana's history and its paradoxes: a city where architectural treasures
survive among crumbling tenements; where a vibrant street life takes
place amid shortages; where revolutionary politics, machismo, and a
thriving black market co-exist against a background of salsa, griteria, and
baseball.

Venice
a cultural history
by Martin Garrett
stablished on its many islands by Roman refugees, the heart of a
maritime empire, a republic for a thousand years, Venice has always
been distinct from the rest of Italy—and from anywhere else. It's unique
light and hundreds of canals, palaces and churches have attracted visitors,
painters and writers as diverse as Turner, Proust and Pound. Looking at the
legacy of the city’s Jewish, Greek, Slav, and Armenian minorities, Martin
Garett recalls the exploits of such legendary figures as Casanova and Byron
in this city renowned for its weath and independence of mind, as well as
its beauty and decadence.

the roMan proVence guiDe
by Edwin Mullins
“The author offers a close look at the monuments left behind by the
Romans—often a stone-by-stone account of the construction process as well
as who was responsible for the concept and/or the building of a particular
structure—all the while putting each into historical perspective… From
the beginning of this concise account… we are given an in-depth look at
the Romans in Provence… The Roman Provence Guide becomes one
of those books you can't put down… I found this one of the best guide
books for this region. Other books about Provence may superficially describe
Roman ruins, but none explains their origins in such interesting detail.”

“Provence boasts more Roman-era architecture than anywhere else in the
world; this new guide to the area’s Roman heritage provides a hefty dose
of ancient history along with maps, photographs, and a list of museums

kentucky
by Brad Asher
rad Asher, a scholar of Native American history, goes beyond the
myths (or stereotypes) of the colonel in white who drinks mint
juleps and breeds thoroughbreds and the barefoot hillbilly who
knows caves and moonshine to explore the rich, complicated history
of a state that has been home to figures as diverse as Robert Penn
Warren, Muhammad Ali, and Wendell Berry. From the bluegrass of
the heartland, to the hills and hollows of the east, to the flatlands of
the west, and to vibrant Louisville, Asher shows a Kentucky beyond
the world’s largest cave and most famous race track.
