Castles Of Sand from the Author: Anne Mather. The reunion was almost unbearable Ashley could hardly believe she was actually seeing her son. Circumstances had forced her to give him up at birth seven years earlier to her deceased husband's wealthy Arab family. Now the unexpected sight of Hussein with his uncle, Prince Alain, thoroughly shocked her. No longer was her son an image buried in Ashley's heart: he was there; he was real. And Alain was no longer a memory but as disturbing—and unforgiving—as ever. This time, Ashley resolved, I'm not going to lose either of them.

Castles In The Sand from the Author: Michael Cameron Dempsey. Abu Dhabi--an obscure Middle Eastern principality that happens to be the richest city in the world. This book tells the story of Abu Dhabi's ambitions to transform itself from a sleepy sheikhdom into a thriving international metropolis and a hub of business and leisure. It traces Abu Dhabi's boom years from 2009 to 2011 from the perspective of a Westerner working for the Urban Planning Council, the government agency that planned and coordinated all of the massive development activity. Castles in the Sand explores the drastic changes in Abu Dhabi's built environment, where entire islands are forested with skyscrapers and billions of dollars in infrastructure are spent on a whim--while recounting the disorienting experience of an outsider encountering a society in which foreigners outnumber locals nine to one and modernity clashes head-on with centuries of embedded tradition. General readers will find a broad introduction to Abu Dhabi, and architects and planners will gain a firsthand glimpse inside an unprecedented experiment in city-building.

Sand Castles from the Author: Paul R. Gross. Sand Castles: a collection of writings by Aline Dorothy Gross, who died of cancer, at age 24, in 1980. At that time she was a graduate student in biochemistry at Cornell. It includes diary entries, letters, reflections on contemporaries and culture, and poetry. Beginning at age 14, she was treated for Hodgkins disease, eventually with success; but in the end she died of treatment-induced cancer. Despite the catastrophe, she managed to become an honor student at Yale, a promising biochemist, an athlete, and a writer of growing sophistication and power. These selections, assembled by her father, tell the storyprimarily in her own eloquent words. It transcends the fate of one young woman: this story is about facing calamity with courage, wit, self-respect, and intelligence.

Castles Made Of Sand from the Author: Andre Gerolymatos. With roots in imperialism and the nineteenth-century mindset of the "Great Game," Western nations have waged an intricate spy game this past century to establish control over the Middle East, secure access to key resources and regions of commerce, and prevent the spread of Soviet communism into the region. From the Suez Canal to the former Ottoman Empire, British and American intelligence communities have conspired to topple regimes and initiate Muslim leaders as pawns in a geopolitical chess game fought against Marxist expansion. Yet while the Iron Curtain was doomed to fall near the end of the twentieth century, this pattern of tunnel vision has created a different monster. The resulting resurgence of Muslim radicalism, and the induction of Arabs and other Muslims into the dark arts of espionage and sabotage, have only served to fan the flames in an already incendiary region and deepen the tensions between the Middle East and the West today. An authority on international studies and the history of guerilla warfare, André Gerolymatos offers the contemporary reader insight into the intelligence game that is still waged internationally with lethal intent, and into the Middle Eastern terrorist networks that had evolved over the decades. In this definitive account of covert operations in the Middle East, the author brings to life the extraordinary men and women whose successes and failures have shaped relations, and he reveals how the explosive nature of the region today has direct roots in the history of American and Western intervention.
