About this Item

First edition. With 26 illustrations and 28 maps. 8vo, blue cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and upper cover, with gilt-stamped decorative device on upper cover, in dustjacket. 460, including index. A handsome and very well preserved copy, clean and pleasing with only some small chips to the edges of the dustjacket. FIRST EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC WORK. Glubb went to Iraq in 1920 as a regular officer in the British Army. He later became Commander of the army of the Trans-Jordanian state because of the great love he had developed of the Arab people over time. This is a personal narrative of his adventures and experiences before he was ultimately ordered out of Jordan by the government in 1956 due the rising enmity between the East and West. He describes his entire life’s attempts to bring understanding, if not peace, between the Arabs and the West, and acknowledges his failure. He also relates his criticism of the manner in which affairs were handled in the Middle East by Britain, the U.S., France, Arab countries, and Israel, saying that he does it "humbly," but without his own opinions the narrative would be "dull and colorless." A unique view on the activities in the Middle East during a time that was seething with political turmoil. Bookseller Inventory # 25894
