Crossing the Jordan River provides first-hand insight into the ins and outs of people’s lives in the Middle East. Jacob Rosen, a seasoned diplomat writes a serious, but entertaining book about his experiences in the diplomatic world, which take him on assignments throughout the Arab world. This collection of short stories, which can be very amusing and at other times quite thought provoking, gives the reader a better understanding of the Arab-Israeli conflict through a direct, candid look at their culture and everyday life.
What readers are saying:
"Rosen’s book is as humorous as it is poignant, giving an insight into the peoples of the Middle East. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to know and understand the different nations living side by side—those who do not even understand themselves! An excellent, light hearted, short-story book of the daily lives of the average person in the Middle East and which should be read by and be on the bookshelves of every home and book shop in the region." —M.C., Israel
