      The city of Mosul in Northern Iraq witnessed the misfortunes of war on many occasions in the past 100 years, and its minorities have always been ignored during difficult times. In Mosul and Its Minorities, Harry Charles Luke, once an Assistant Governor of Jerusalem for the British Mandate government, hopes "to make these singularly interesting peoples better known to English readers, and to win for them, if possible, some additional measure of sympathy in the difficult times through which they are passing."

      05/11/2004 Leroy, J. Monks and Monasteries of the Near East
      Jules Leroy, the French art expert, spent several months touring the Near East in search of Early Christian remains. During this time he visited most of the monasteries in Egypt, Syria, the Lebanon, Palestine, and Iraq, some of them in ruins, some of them still flourishing. He has written a vivid account of his impressions of these monasteries and of the reception he got from the monks in them. Not all the places he visited were Christian, for he describes visits to the Moslem Bektashis in Cairo, the dervishes at Tripoli, and the Yezidi devil-worshippers in the mountains of Iraq.
