Reviews

"A major figure in the creation of modern-day Iraq." -Los Angeles Times "Desert Queen, as timely as today's headlines, plucks Gertrude Bell out of the shadow of Lawrence of Arabia." -The Boston Globe "Wallach has done an outstanding job of bringing Gertrude Bell to life." -The Dallas Morning News "A richly textured biography of a . . . woman who devoted her life to knowing the desert Arabs better, perhaps, than any other European of her day. . . . Wallach comfortably commands the tangled political and diplomatic history of the Middle East." -Chicago Tribune
