Status: New - Across the globe, there are more than 50 armed conflicts, many of which are being perpetrated in the name of religion. In these zones of violence, there are brave men and women who, motivated by their religious beliefs, are working to create and sustain peace and reconciliation. Yet their stories are unknown. This book explores the conflicts and the stories of 15 remarkable individuals identified and studied by the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding from regions as far-flung as West Papua, Indonesia, the Middle East, Northern Ireland, Nigeria, El Salvador and South Africa. The book also captures important lessons learned when these peacemakers convened in Amman, Jordan for the 2004 Peacemakers in Action Retreat and discussed their best techniques and greatest obstacles in creating peace on the ground. Peacemakers in Action provides guidance to students of religion and future peacemakers.

Status: New - Contemporary art and its many trends are not the exclusive reserve of the West. This book unambiguously demonstrates the huge and startling wealth of artistic talent in a wide area, sweeping from Morocco to Bruneil. Based on the very important and comprehensive collection of the Royal Society of Fine Arts, Amman, Jordan, this is the first extensive documentation of the development of modern art in Islamic countries. More than twenty centres of modern art in the East are treated. Each country is examined, putting the modern artistic development of the country in its historical context, with biographical data on major artists, of whom more than 200 are included. Apart from the work of the editor, numerous contributors have co-operated in creating an important work of reference for present and future generations. The book was also produced at a fortuitous time (1989), to show a cultural side of the Islamic world which many in the West are currently inclined to dismiss or ignore. This volume was produced to coincide with the major exhibition of contemporary Islamic art from this collection, which was exhibited at the Barbican Centre, London, 1989.

..."Eight degrees!?" "He did say eight?" The incredulity was an echoed whisper as we landed in the rain at Amman airport after the airline captain had just given us his local conditions update. "Eight degrees?" O.K. it was still only March, but it had been warmer than that when we left London. The cold was going to be an unexpected fe...

Review of Amman (Jordan)
Advantages: Cheap, cultural Disadvantages: Boring, dusty, leering men, lack of pavements
...with wet hair as this apparently implies that you have recently had sex!
It was not a pretty place. Lots of dust, rubbish and wasteland but the city is apparently being regenerated and there is a lot of building work going on.
Amman is located in a very hilly area of north-western Jordan. The city spans over an area of nineteen hills. Most regions of Amman have gained their names from...

Review of Amman (Jordan)
Advantages: Thousands of years of history beneath your feet Disadvantages: Quite a bit of it probably still is buried
...Usually translated as "the Citadel", the Jabal al-Qal'a is more than a fortress. Indeed, it's unclear that it ever was a fortress in the true sense of the word. It is much more of an ancient walled town. That's not to say it isn't a place of refuge or strength. Located on one of the seven hills of Amman, at about 850m above sea level, it overlooks the main trade route through town. This...
