Summary
  • In the Five Years that Judith Caesar taught literature in Saudi Arabia and Egypt during the 1980s, key events took place that changed the face of Middle Eastern politics. Seen through the eyes of many Westerners, the assassination of Anwar Sadat, the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, and the Intifada were incidents reflective of a seemingly volatile and aggressive culture. But Caesar saw these events from another perspective. Part memoir and part travelogue, Crossing Borders
  • conveys simply and eloquently the voices of the people and the cultures Caesar came to know during her time in the Arab world. In the tradition of the best writings on foreign places, Caesar's narrative is both an inward as well as an outward journey of discovery. In addition to the political reverberations taking place around her, she writes of the misconceptions generated by both the Saudi and the American press. In "All the News That's Fit to Print," Caesar notes the
  • scanty and sometimes biased reports in the American news media, and the equally distorted coverage of internal news stories in the Saudi press. She also considers the psychological and philosophical implications of encountering values and assumptions about human nature which are very different from those prevailing in contemporary American society
