Egans account of military life and the actions taken by British officers to secure the British Empires position in the Middle East is particularly striking, as readers begin to see the parallels between the early twentieth century British presence there and the current American presence in Iraq. This book should be read by all those interested in understanding the ways in which the modern Middle East has adapted as a result of invasion and imperialism.

With a new critical introduction that explores the choices made by the United States that have led them to inherit the United Kingdoms position in the Gulf, Paul J. Rich offers an analysis of Egans work that will allow contemporary readers to see that what is going on in Iraq now is nothing new.
