Arabian Days

By H. St. J. B. Philby
Hale, 1948

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.
