Book Review "Children of Jihad"

Children of Jihad: A Young American's Travels Among the Youth of the Middle EastChildren of Jihad: A Young American's Travels Among the Youth of the Middle East by Jared Cohen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Children of Jihad by Jared Cohen

Jared Cohen, (a Jewish American) travels to Syria, Iraqi Kurdistan, Iraq, Lebanon, and Iran recording his experiences in this hard-to-put-down book.
This is a very interesting book about the youth living in the Middle East. Lots of history about each area's political and social situation- in the past and today.
It was interesting to me that Hezbollah hates the American Government and Israel, but at the same time they don't hate individual Jews and Americans, even becoming friends with Mr. Cohen while he was there visiting. An amazing- and at some times- chilling book about the Middle East today.

Book review "Invisible China"

Invisible China: A Journey Through Ethnic BorderlandsInvisible China: A Journey Through Ethnic Borderlands by Colin Legerton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Invisible China by Colin Legerton
Very informative book telling about people in different parts of China. I enjoyed learning about minority ethnic groups. Culture, history, foods and customs, a great book for anyone interested in China in general but especially good for those researching ethnic groups of China, the "Middle Kingdom."
