The Arab Island

By Freya Stark

Knopf, 1945, 235 pp.

Miss Stark has established herself as one of the foremost living authorities on the Arab peoples. It was thus natural that the British Government should employ her during the war to counteract Axis propaganda in the countries of the "Arab Island." This engaging volume recounts many of her experiences and contains a number of wellconsidered interpretations and judgments, including her objections to Zionism.
