'Like many Australian's, journalist Christine Hogan viewed the Islamic world with a mix of fascination, bemusement and apprehension.  But overcoming her trepidation, she decided the only way to gain any understanding of Islam - the religion, the culture and the people - was to see things first-hand.  So began a journey of discovery through Libya, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt and the Gulf States.
While coping with stroppy camels, plagues of locusts, and getting lost in the Sahara and a souk or two, Christine also came to appreciate the beauty and complexity of the Middle East, and a kindness and hospitality unrivaled anywhere else in the world.  In short, she soon found her old assumptions making way for new insights.'
