Listing Detail Tabs

At the end of the Second World War, Britain’s armies were in peaceful and friendly occupation of the whole Arab world. Her fleets and air forces with those of the United States controlled the Mediterranean and indeed all the seven seas. Now she has lost the near monopoly of influence which she exercised in the Middle East for almost 50 years and has become merely one of several powers operating in the area as she was before 1914.

What has happened in the past 12 years and why? What chance is there of the longstanding friendship between the Arabs and the British being restored? What does the Middle East genuinely understand of Communism? What can the west offer these countries which the U.S.S.R. cant?

For 36 years, Glubb Pasha was present in this area – for 10 years in Iraq and for 26 in Jordan – serving the British and the Arabs as though he were a member of both nations. This picture of the whole contemporary Middle East in proportion and perspective from 1908 to the end of 1958 is his testament of experience and knowledge, thought and feeling. Here are the lessons he considers may be learned from our relations with the Arab people, and here are his suggestions and well based forecasts for the future.

Glubb Pasha author, Hodder & Stoughton publisher 1959, 496pp, h/c, dj, b/w maps. Dust jacket a little tattered (per photo) with tape discolouring to flaps and eps. Interior is reasonably tidy.
