Writer and publisher Barnaby Rogerson has travelled and written extensively on North Africa and the Levant.
Barnaby started travelling young, following his father around the naval bases of the world. He studied history at the University of St Andrews, worked for a number of publishers as well as the press office of the Afghanistan Support Committee. Subsequently, he researched and wrote guidebooks to Morocco, Tunisia, Istanbul, Cyprus and Libya before writing a History of North Africa (now in its fourth edition). He has also written a biography of ‘The Prophet Muhammad’ which was followed by the story of first four Caliphs of Islam, ‘The Heirs of the Prophet’. Over the last twenty years he has contributed numerous travel articles, book reviews and historical essays on various North African and Islamic themes for various newspapers and magazines which are stored at www.barnabyrogerson.com
Barnaby’s most recent work, ‘The Last Crusaders’, was published in 2010 and is centred on the 150 year war (1415-1578) fought between the Hapsburg, Ottoman, Moroccan and Portugese monarchs for the control of the Mediterranean shore and the trade routes of the old world. He is currently writing a book on Roman North Africa as well as a small volume on Sacred Numerology. He has led dozens of tours over the last 20 years to the historical monuments of Morocco, Turkey, Tunisia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Western Desert of Egypt and Algeria.
His day job is running Eland Publishing with his partner Rose Baring, which specializes in keeping the classics of travel literature in print. The hundred or so titles of this growing list can be viewed at www.travelbooks.co.uk
