Product description


'A captivating analysis of the Englishmen whose writings on the inhabitants of the Arabian desert enhanced what the author rightly terms a 'powerful imperial myth'. Her analysis of where reality failed to match up to fantasy is cool and compelling.' --The Economist

'Entertaining and well written.' --Malise Ruthven, London Review of Books

'The attraction of the Middle East for the English upper-middle-class is carefully - and amusingly - analysed.' --Richard Trench, The Middle East --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
