After the prophet : the epic story of the Shia-Sunni split in Islam by Lesley Hazleton( Book )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 1,445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Balancing past and present, Hazelton shows how 7th-century events are alive in Middle Eastern hearts and minds today as though they had just happened, shaping modern headlines from Iran's Islamic Revolution to the civil war in Iraq
The first Muslim : the story of Muhammad by Lesley Hazleton( Book )
13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The extraordinary life of the man who founded Islam, and the world he inhabited-- and remade.

Hazleton follows the arc of Muhammad's rise from powerlessness to power, from anonymity to renown
Mary : a flesh-and-blood biography of the Virgin Mother by Lesley Hazleton( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: Arguably the most influential of all women throughout history, Mary, the Virgin Mother is also, paradoxically, the least known. In this unprecedented brilliantly wrought biography, Mary comes believably to life. We are so used to the legendary image of the Madonna that the very idea of her as a real person sets the eyes alight. Starting with the dark-skinned, hard-muscled girl barely out of adolescence when she gave birth, Lesley Hazleton weaves together the many facets of Mary's existence: peasant villager, wise woman and healer, activist, mother, teacher, and yes, virgin, though in a sense we have long forgotten. She follows her through the worst any mother can experience-the excruciating death of her child-and then looks at how she transforms grief into wisdom, disaster into renewal. Strong and courageous, the source of her son's powers of healing and wisdom, the Mary we see here did not merely assent to her role in history, but actively chose it, and lived it to the fullest. As a former psychologist and political reporter with deep roots in both Judaism and Catholicism, Hazleton has drawn on years of Middle East experience as well as on anthropology, history, theology, and above all, empathy to reconstruct Mary's life. The woman she discovers is neither demystified nor diminished, but on the contrary, all the more meaningful and admirable. By honoring her reality, Hazleton has given her back to herself-and to us

Jezebel : the untold story of the Bible's harlot queen by Lesley Hazleton( Book )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For nearly three thousand years, Jezebel has been invoked as the ultimate femme fatale, the embodiment of wanton wickedness. But journalist Hazleton's retelling of her story creates a radically different portrait. The moment the Phoenician princess Jezebel arrives in Israel for her wedding to King Ahab, the alliance is denounced by the prophet Elijah. The new queen and the feared prophet go head to head in a dramatic and bloody conflict pitting polytheism against monotheism, tolerance against righteousness, pragmatism against ideology. Hazleton reveals the real story of the downfall of a powerful woman, and how its consequences reverberate to the present day.--From publisher description

Jerusalem poker by Edward Whittemore( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On New Year's Eve, 1921, three men sit down to a poker game. The Great Jerusalem Poker Game, as it's eventually known, continues for the next twelve years--the players unwilling to leave a competition whose prize is control of Jerusalem. The players are as exotic as the game: Cairo Martyr, a one-time African slave, now the Middle East's chief supplier of aphrodisiac mummy dust; Joe O'Sullivan Beare, an Irish tradesman with a specialty in sacred phallic amulets; and Munk Szondi, an Austro-Hungarian Imperial Army colonel turned dedicated Zionist. But before the final hand is played to determine the destiny of the Holy City, a dangerous new player enters the picture: Nubar Wallenstein, an Albanian alchemist determined to achieve immortality, and heir to the world's largest oil syndicate. He finances a vast network of spies dedicated to destroying the players, and his aim is to win complete power over Jerusalem. Jerusalem Poker is the second volume of the Jerusalem Quartet, which begins with Sinai Tapestry and continues with Nile Shadows and Jericho Mosaic
