James Barr‘s masterful account of France and Britain’s carving up of the Middle East in the years following the First World War, A Line in the Sand, was praised by critics and readers alike. Now, in Lords of the Desert, James continues the story from 1945, focusing on the struggle between Britain and the US for dominance in the region as imperial ambitions gave way to the race for oil.
‘An essential book for understanding the modern Middle East—and a thrilling read to boot.’
Alex von Tunzelmann, author of Blood and Sand
