Charles Glass, an award-winning commentator on the Middle East, resumes a journey through the Levant that was violently interrupted in 1987 when he was kidnapped by Shiite gunmen. The voyage, from Aqaba on the Red Sea to Alexandretta in southern Turkey, begins again in September 2001, haunted by the 9/11 attacks on America and the ensuing invasion of Iraq.
