    Based on four years of intensive primary document research, Lawrence in Arabiadefinitively overturns received wisdom on how the modern Middle East was formed. Sweeping in its action, keen in its portraiture, acid in its condemnation of the destruction wrought by European colonial plots, this is a book that brilliantly captures the way in which the folly of the past creates the anguish of the present.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A very hard to follow narrative.


    What was most disappointing about Scott Anderson’s story?

    The author had a need for adding all sorts of narrative color that only made following the complex specifics in the history line hard to follow.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lawrence in Arabia?

    The author needs to take a lesson from any documentary film maker. For complex history timelines keep it simple.
