Arabian Days
By H. St. J. B. Philby
Hale, 1948, 336 pp.

These reminiscences tell the remarkable story of Philby's transformation from an official of the Indian Civil Service into an anti-imperialist, converted Moslem, confidant and agent of Ibn Saud. He here records his impressions of, and judgments on, two generations of Middle East figures, Arab and British.
