This engaging cultural guide-cum-etiquette book is aptly subtitled "How to converse, dine, tip, drive, bargain, dress, make friends, and conduct business while in the Middle East and North Africa." The authors have written similar guides to Latin America (1988), Asia (1986), and Europe ( LJ 2/1/84). Each chapter treats an individual country. Insightful tips on behavior distinguish the work: how to mount a camel; what to take the host when invited home; the often complex etiquette of a business meeting. Particularly valuable are the cautions and considerations for women and business travelers. There is a key to Arabic and Hebrew phrases. The book successfully complements more traditional guides to these regions. Recommended for all libraries serving travelers who want to be sensitive to the customs of the countries they visit.
