Preface by Peter Quennell, series editor.

The author writes in her Foreword: "This is a study of the British who lived in or were associated with the Middle East between the middle of the sixteenth century and the outbreak of World War I. It is not a history of British political activities....I hope in this book to emphasise the individual rather than the national character of the enterprises which brought the British to the area.There are of course a host of people who were interested in the Middle East at one time or another during this period...and I have tended to emphasise less well known figures...."
