The Golden Warrior: The Life and Legend of Lawrence of Arabia

The Golden Warrior: The Life and Legend of Lawrence of Arabia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

During the 1920s, T. E. Lawrence gained global attention, both for his involvement in the Middle Eastern anti-imperialist movement, and for his vivid and sensational writings about his experiences. Despite the passage of many years and the emergence of a whole new set of problems in the Middle East, and fuelled by the success of the hit movie Lawrence of Arabia, the T. E. Lawrence mystique continues to fascinate. Controversial and provocative, this revised and updated edition of Lawrence Jamess acclaimed biography penetrates and overturns the mythology that surrounds T. E. Lawrence. James traces the sometimes spurious Lawrence legend back to its truthful roots, yet remains dispassionate and generous in spirit throughout. The Golden Warrior presents readers with a fascinating study of one of the twentieth centurys most remarkable figures.

Book News Annotation:

James, a former teacher, gives his contribution to the pantheon of T.E. Lawrence biographies with this lengthy offering, revised from its original 1995 publication but maintaining its distance both in methodology and belief from Jeremy Wilson's Lawrence of Arabia. Much of the book studies the pivotal years from 1914-1918. James' narrative is accessible, comprehensible, and interesting for the general reader.
