T. E. Lawrence was one of the most charismatic characters of the First World War; a young archaeologist who fought with the Arabs and wrote an epic and very personal account of their revolt against the Turks in Seven Pillars of Wisdom. Yet this was not the first book to carry that iconic title

It is a book for orientalists, archeologists, and encyclopedic museum buffs, but also for students of WWI and those desiring a better understanding of the present Middle East---of Syria, Iraq, Turkey, muslims, arabs, and kurds--and how West European meddling gave us what we have today, all brought to life vividly in captivating narrative. It is an account of a gifted gay youth in a world that hardly acknowledged such things, who found his brief happiness in escaping from the West. In the last analysis this is simply a love story.
