"Welcome to the Middle East General category of Trieste Publishing. The Middle East is a fascinating region where people and cultures come into contact with that of Europe, Asia and Africa. The history of the Middle East dates back to antiquity, and throughout its history, the Middle East has been a major center of world life. The Middle East is the place of historical origins of major religions such as Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The Middle East as a whole has an arid and hot climate, with several large rivers providing irrigation to support agriculture in some regions, so in ancient times in this region arose and developed the first civilizations of Egypt and Sumer. We are pleased to recommend the book from the Trieste Publishing catalogue ""From Persian Uplands"" by F. Hale where the author describes Persia in his letters. Or you can be interested in the collection of short essays “Journeys to Bagdad” written by Charles S. Brooks. Also, the book “Through five Turkish provinces” authored by Mark Sykes might get your attention. The author left England with the intention of spending three or four months in the Syrian Desert, but when he reached Damascus, he found that he could not obtain the necessary permission. As a result, the author went there, which was a new place for him, and visited Aleppo, Baghdad, Mosul and Van; returning home through the Ararat, Erivan and Batum mountains. On the following pages, the author described his travels. If you are interested in learning more about traditions and customs, then we recommend you the book “An American among the Orientals: including an audience with the sultan, and a visit to the interior of a Turkish harem” authored by James E. P. Boulden. This book presents new characteristics of the Turks, their special customs and beliefs. Particularly interesting are the authentic accounts of their manners and customs. A simple, unadorned, but truthful narrative of what the author observed during his several months in Constantinople is all that the author aspired to in this nondescript tome, which is now modestly presented to the public.
