Originally published in 1925, this book contains the text of lectures made by Sir Samuel Hoare, then the Secretary of State for Air, to students at Harrow School on the subject of his visit to various territories in the Middle East that were under British control after the First World War, including Baghdad and Jerusalem. The text is conversational and easy to read, and photographs of the people, animals and places seen on Hoare's journey are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the Middle East or in British colonial history.
