By Stephen Hemsley Longrigg

Oxford University Press (for the Royal Institute of International Affairs), 1958, 404 pp.

Brigadier Longrigg, who has had long experience in the Middle East, here reviews the successes and failures of the French Mandate from 1920 to 1945. While praising the material achievements he finds the French handling of political issues "surprisingly maladroit."
