Description


The phone rang and my life changed. It was an executive search firm. A "substantive and reputable international entity" needed help with a major, long-term health research project critical to the children of its nation and I had been pinpointed as one of the best people in the world capable of addressing their problem. I couldn't then imagine the scope or scale of the new adventure that awaited me. "Children of the Kingdom" is my memoir, travelogue, and sciencecurrent events story concerning a Middle-Eastern society in transition, the intrigue of an oil-rich monarchy maintaining a precarious balance with its country's religious extremists, the passions that naturally swirl around ancient cultural traditions, and emerging genetic science. Then there's my wife Mary Ann and I, mature Western expats walking the line between respecting and learning about the culture of our host country and discovering how to enjoy life abroad under a restrictive Islamic regime.
