I have finished the manuscript for my next book, Headlines from the Holy Land. The book is due to be published later this year by Palgrave Macmillan. I will post details here once they become available.
In the meantime, I was a guest this weekend on the BBC World Service’s Weekend programme. I discussed — among many other things — Russia, the Middle East, and even how Pacific oysters got to the North Sea. You can listen here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02l1yz9 .
