Book Description:

Bustling cities with twisting streets and busy markets. Lush gardens, quiet courtyards, minarets flashing in the hot sun. The cities of the Middle East and North Africa evoke these vivid images, but the reality is often more prosaic, with problems of poverty, pollution, disenfranchisement, conflict, and poor infrastructure. What fascinating history lies behind these cities, and what are they like today?
