It's telling that Lawrence's stomping grounds were what is now Syria. This book isn't just an eye-opening way to look at the Middle East, but also a page-turner filled with spies, battles and titanic personalities.

A must for any SWA junkie

There is a lot out there about Lawrence and not all of it good! This book is "different." It approaches Lawrence's work in Arabia against a background of other "spies" who worked the "neighborhood." Anderson is a very good writer; he can't help himself with his comments...
There is a lot out there about Lawrence and not all of it good! This book is "different." It approaches Lawrence's work in Arabia against a background of other "spies" who worked the "neighborhood." Anderson is a very good writer; he can't help himself with his comments relating to how much better we all were when the British ruled the world and how American understanding just never quite gets there...wherever there is! But that's a debate for another day. Let me just say that it's a good read and well worth the time.
