AuthorKathryn Tidrick
PublisherTauris Parke Paperbacks
Publication Date15/12/2009
Editorial ReviewA 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; 'A book of remarkable readability, of understanding and interpretation without cynicism.' - Geoffrey Grigson, Country Life; 'Teems with ideas, expressed in a firm muscular style that never once lets her down... develops her themes with skill, perception and considerable elan.' - John Julius Norwich, Punch; 'An outstanding study on the myth of England's special relationship with the Arabs.' - Robert Harbinson, Irish Press; '...superlative, subtle and profoundly illuminating...written in a wonderfully lucid, jargon-free style, proving that good, clear, elegant English can still be a vehicle for new perceptions, new approaches and new discoveries.' - Christopher J. Walker, Middle East International; 'Kathryn Tidrick's entertaining and well-written study provides ample support for [Edward] Said's argument that 'knowledge equals power' and can be made to serve its ends.' - London Review; 'This is a lively well-written and stimulating book and deserves a place on the library shelf of anyone interested in Britain's moment in the Middle East.' - Molly Izzard, Arabia Islamic World Review; 'For the reader interested in the relationship between the British and the Arabs, Tidrick's book is just the work to read. It is a fascinating story and she tells it elegantly.' - The Jerusalem Post Magazine
