Joining Bob Mann is author Christian C. Sahner, to discuss Among the Ruins: Syria Past and Present, winner of the 2016 NJCH Popular Humanities Book Award.

Timely and accessible, Among the Ruins illuminates the current civil war in Syria by exploring the country’s long history, including the rise of Christianity, the arrival of Islam, the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, and the emergence of sectarianism. Christian Sahner joins this history to an account of his personal travels in the region, resulting in a compelling blend of history and memoir.
