During the 1930s, Aubrey Menen traveled the Middle East and Africa to document the effects of colonialism and the Great Depression on the people and cities he encountered. Cities in the Sand is a poetic and intimate account of Menen's travels, his observations of the people and their cultures, and his impressions of the cities he visited.

Menen's lyrical writing captures the beauty and the tragedy of the people he meets, the ruins and the hope of the cities he visits. He writes of the Dust Bowl, of the Nakba, of the way colonialism and the Depression have left their mark on the people and the cities of the Middle East and Africa. Cities in the Sand is a unique and powerful book that will chang the way readers see the Middle East and Africa.; 4to; 272 pages.
