The Middle East features regularly on our television screens; it shapes our lives and foreign policy and tragic events that happen there dominate our news channels, leading to a simplistic and stereotyped view of the land and the people that live there. This is a sad and dangerous travesty. Having moved to the Middle East, Chris Naylor and his wife set up a pioneering branch of the environmental agency, A Rocha in Lebanon. Over the years they found their prejudices and assumptions utterly overthrown. Postcards from the Middle East is an insightful and informed introduction to Arab culture through the experience of an English family. Engaging and often funny it explores themes of cross-cultural communication and environmental vision."@en ;
