A classic study of the Middle East in modern times, analyzing British failures in the region during the zenith of the empire's power and influence. Mr. Kedourie attributes much of Britain's faulty and disastrous handling of Middle East problems to what he calls "the Chatham House version," a view propagated by Toynbee and his colleagues. "No better guide...can be found to the pitfalls awaiting those who seek to control the Middle East to their own advantage."-Asian Affairs.

"No better guide than Professor Kedouri's book can be found to the pitfalls awaiting those who seek to control the Middle East to their own advantage." - Asian Affairs; "These twelve studies in the modern history of the Middle East [form] the most learned book, the most demanding therefore of rethinking, that has come out on the Middle East for many years, and anyone who in the future writes on any Middle ivan Eastern subject, from any point of view, without consulting it, will do so at his or her grave peril." - London Telegraph"
