Lawrence in Arabia - Scott Anderson

A veteran war correspondent and author of both fiction and nonfiction, Anderson infuses the familiar story of T. E. Lawrence with fresh energy and insight, setting the famous Englishman’s exploits in the broader context of other foreign experts who also were scheming a century ago to manipulate Arab destiny. The result is a fascinating, richly detailed and especially timely book that recalls how the clash between rival empires (the British and French on one side, the German and Ottoman on the other) determined the contours of today’s still very unsettled Middle East.
