“An enlightening and original account of an important and neglected aspect of Churchill’s strategic and political world-view. It forces us to rethink what we know about the origins of the modern Middle East. Essential reading for Churchill scholars and general readers alike.” -Richard Toye, author of Churchill’s Empire and The Roar of the Lion, Professor of Modern History,University of Exeter
“Warren Dockter has written the first comprehensive account of Churchill’s lifelong and many-sided engagement with the Muslim world. Combining meticulous research with insight and imagination, he restores to its rightful place a theme of crucial importance for the assessment of the great man’s character and career.” Paul Addison, author of Churchill: The Unexpected Hero, Honorary Fellow, University of Edinburgh
