"I don't care to be in London much. I like Baghdad, and I like Iraq. It's the real East, and it is stirring; things are happening here, and the romance of it all touches and absorbs me." So wrote Gertrude Bell, as she reflected on the path she had chosen in life. Adventurer, archaeologist, and Arabist, Bell cut a unique figure in the turbulent politics of the Middle East during the First World War and its aftermath. This book will appeal to all those keen to gain a real understanding of the history behind the headlines in Iraq, and an insight into the life and times of one of the twentieth century's most extraordinary women.
