Chris Naylor and his wife went to the Middle East to teach, and stayed to set up a pioneering branch of environemental agency A Rocha in Lebanon, saving vital wetlands. Over the years they found their prejudices and assumptions utterly overthrown. Most British, and more generally, Western readers have a simplistic and stereotyped view of the Middle East and its people: oil, or terrorism. This is a dangerous travesty.

By looking at the culture through the life of a trans- located British family the reader will be introduced to the richness, culture and humanity of the Arab world as well as its undoubted challenges.... learn to respect both the New Zealand pioneer spirit, complete with its zeal for the outdoors and enjoyment of manual labour, ... First, of course, comes Wikipedia, and then a varied assortment of blogs, news stories, and scholarly abstracts.
