Stories are told of the wild Tribes who control the untamable Desert, the bloody battles that are waged there, but little is actually known. In a place where alliances are as shifting as the sands, one Tribe is universally regarded as the most dangerous: the Ghost Tribe, led by the bloodthirsty Sheik Hashim and his son Sahayl, called the Sandstorm. Sahayl is not his father, however, and would rather see the Tribes find a way to live peacefully. When a meeting to negotiate peace with the Falcon Tribe goes wrong, nobody is more disappointed than Sahayl, especially as it means he'll never come to better know the beautiful, blue-eyed Falcon who challenged him. Then the violence in the Desert abruptly worsens as Tribes believed long dead begin to appear, and sorting ally from enemy becomes impossible. To save his Tribe and the Desert, Sahayl must take drastic measures that will reshape the Desert in a way that only a Sandstorm can...

Former foreign correspondent Charles Mortimer is all washed up, living a hand-to-mouth existence in Manhattan, wondering how things could have gone so wrong for him. A chance discovery of a newspaper obituary takes him back to the beginning of his career, when he was a young, hopeful man reporting from the Sahara Desert in the company of beautiful French photographer Celeste Dumas. The two narrowly escape death by bullet, grenade, thirst and heatstroke and, ultimately, drowning. By the end of their adventure, Mortimer has begun his life as a successful, cynical journalist. Fifteen years roll by, and Mortimer finds himself again in Algeria, where he perpetrates the great error of his professional life and realizes, finally, what it was he lost so long ago in the desert wastes. By the winner of the Author's Club First Novel Award, Guardian First Book Award and The Times First Book Award.

"In this impossible task of representation, Arthur Neslen writes a book that is impossible to put down. In Your Eyes a Sandstorm is where Joyce's The Dubliners meets Howard Zinn's A People’s History. Thrilling, compassionate, and unflinching narratives and dialogues converge the critical events of contemporary Palestinian being into the present. Palestinians are field negroes, house negroes, ghettoized schlemiels and pariahs, ethnically cleansed, colonized, occupied, militant, pacifist, doctors, zookeepers, rappers, journalists, teachers, etc. They are also an original people who will continue to write a new story in the book of survival and hope, of overcoming suffering and, hopefully, of going beyond power." —Fady Joudah, author of The Earth in the Attic and translator of Mahmoud Darwish’s If I Were Another “In this wonderful collection, one can hear the Palestinians speaking for themselves and not through others who may distort or dim their messages. Very few collections have brought home to us so vividly and authentically what it means to be a Palestinian today.” —Ilan Pappe, author of The Rise and Fall of a Palestinian Dynasty "This highly original work is an important contribution to Palestine literature, especially in the way that personal narrative interacts with and enriches collective-national and public memory." —Nur Masalha, author of Expulsion of the Palestinians: The Concept of "Transfer" in Zionist Political Thought "Neslen powerfully gives voice to Palestinians, humanizes them, and reveals the complexities of Palestinian society." —Sara Roy, author of Hamas and Civil Society in Gaza “A remarkable achievement at the junction of Middle East politics and anthropology, this collection of interviews with Palestinians from eight successive generations—defined according to historical watersheds—is a necessary complement to treatise-like readings on the Palestinians and the Israel-Palestine conflict. It offers the means for a reasoned empathy with the Palestinian people, and provides a perfect counterpoint to the ‘journey through the Israeli psyche’ which Arthur Neslen took his readers on in his previous book.” —Gilbert Achcar, author of The Arabs and the Holocaust: The Arab-Israeli War of Narratives

Sandstorm is the best kind of reportage: humane, historically-informed and full of details that only a writer close to the action could have noticed. The overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi has been one of the twenty-first century's defining moments: the Arab world's most bizarre dictator brought down by his own people with the aid of NATO aircraft. Lindsey Hilsum was in Libya when Gaddafi met his squalid end. She traces the history of his strange regime from its beginnings - when Gaddafi had looks, charisma and popular appeal - to its paranoid, corrupt final state. At the heart of her book, however, is a brilliant narrative of Libyan people overcoming fear and disillusionment and finding the strength to rebel. Hilsum follows five of them through months of terror and tragedy. This is the Libyan revolution as it was made and lived. Sandstorm will take its place in a library of classic books about turning points of history.

The time has come for a serious debate on the future involvement of the United States in the Middle East and this original and provocative analysis challenges the prevailing wisdom of the Washington foreign policy establishment. Hadar provides a sweeping reexamination of the conceptual bases of American policy and proposes a strategy of "constructive disengagement" from the region, a policy of benign neglect as a way of promoting the interests of the United States as well as those of the people of the Middle East. In Sandstorm, Hadar calls for regional states and the European Union to take increased responsibility for security, economic growth, and political stability. This bold and innovative critique will inject new energy into the policy debate.

A dark secret. A hidden purpose… Can love defeat destiny? Stella, a teenager about to graduate, experiences the magic of love for the first time by meeting the boy of her dreams, Erick, an attractive exchange student. A mysterious, cold and out of reach guy that hides a big secret. Both, he and his twin brother Luke, have a secret mission to achieve, where there is no room for feelings. That’s why, falling in love with Stella, his next victim, is not in his plans. But she has something, something that confuses them, something that stirs a strange fire that consumes them inside and they had never experienced before. They will both take their rivalry to the limit to win Stella’s love, risking her live not to reveal their dark secret. Double Moon is a tribute to first love. It talks about those feelings that give you goose bumps for the very first time, about that strength that pushes you to fight for what you want against everything and everyone. About the fear of losing and the disappointment that lying can cause. A story where nothing is what it seems, where looks can be deceiving. A romance fiction, but real as life itself. Francine's romance books for teens and young adults are written in spanish but soon available in english. Double Moon is her first book available in english.

A major reading scheme for the teaching of reading and the development of literacy throughout the primary years. Sandstorm combines the elements of a gripping mystery/adventure story with an atmospheric description of present-day Egyptian life. Rashida and her friend Iman are caught in a sandstorm on their way home from school. As the air begins to clear, Rashida finds an old mirror buried in the sand. In the days that follow, Rashida sees visions in the mirror of another girl in another time. Has the sandstorm turned her mad, or can the mirror really give her the power to look into the past? Sandstorm is one of eleven books that make up Extended Reading Level B, for children in Year 6/Primary 7. This phase of Cambridge Reading has an increased provision of extended narratives and aims to develop children's knowledge about language, its vocabulary, forms, structures and styles.
