Product Description

Great product!

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, August 2013: Scott Anderson’s Lawrence in Arabia is a marvel of a history book. The
research is impeccable. The story is fascinating and unforgettable. And the characters are so compelling that they seem
to have been plucked from a novel. During World War I, the course of the modern day Middle East was set by a handful of
young, low-ranking actors who exerted oversized influence on the region. Anderson focuses our attention on four men: a
minor German diplomat and spy, an American oilman descended from the Yale family, a Romanian-born agronomist, and T.E.
Lawrence himself. As we witness the western nations attempting to carve up a region that they were never able to master,
these adventurous and often duplicitous men come to full life--none more so than Lawrence. The amount of research it
must have taken to write this book is astounding. But there is no filler here: this is the kind of detail that causes
the narrative to pop, that makes it live and breathe, and it will keep you reading long into the night. --Chris Schluep
