Description

In this objective portrait of Lawrence of Arabia, John Mack draws on extensive interviews, War Office dispatches, and much previously unpublished correspondence to explore the relationship between Lawrence's inner life and his exploits in the Arab revolt against the Turks during the World War I. In addition to this psychiatric investigation, Mack also examines the existing historical, political, and sociological forces with which Lawrence had to contend, and which make his achievements all the more remarkable.show more
