Syria, the desert & the sown by Gertrude Lowthian Bell( Book )

69 editions published between 1907 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Current events in the Middle East have revived interest in the extraordinary life and accomplishments of Gertrude Bell, "the female Lawrence of Arabia." A skilled archeologist, historian, and linguist, Bell wrote captivating, perceptive accounts of her Eastern travels. This intriguing narrative {u2014} accompanied by 160 photos {u2014} traces her 1905 sojourn in Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine." -- Publisher's description
Persian pictures by Gertrude Lowthian Bell( Book )

44 editions published between 1928 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This brilliant, vivid and impressionistic series of sketches, formed during her 1892 stay in Persia, is Gertrude Bell's first published work. Infused with a distinctive orientalism, "Persian Pictures" is an evocative, virtuosic meditation, moving sinuously between Persia's heroic complex, mythical past and present decline; the public face of Tehran and the otherworldly "secret, mysterious life of the East;" the lives of its women; its enclosed, quasi-medieval gardens; from the bustling cities to the lonely wastelands of Khorasan. Bell's documentation of Muharram--the month of mourning for Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Mohammed--and Ramadan, display a mind finely attuned to the differences and similarities between Islam and Christianity, East and West. "Persian Pictures" is both travelog and meditation, an elegaic and beautifully observed account of a spellbinding land.--From publisher description

"Gertrude Bell the well-known explorer and archaeologist began her extensive travels in the Near East in 1892.

The desert and the sown : the Syrian adventures of the female Lawrence of Arabia by Gertrude Lowthian Bell( Book )

35 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the standards of any age, the life of Gertrude Bell (1868-1926) was extraordinary. During her travels in the Middle East, she rode with bandits; was captured by Bedouins; and sojourned in a harem. Her colleagues and friends included Winston Churchill, T.E. Lawrence, and Arabian sheiks. During World War I she worked for British intelligence and later played a crucial role in creating the modern Middle East." "Bell's adventurous career belied her privileged upbringing and sharply contrasted with an era when the parlor and the nursery marked the expected, conventional boundaries of an Englishwoman's life. (Still, it would take Bell a dozen years to be recognized by, and admitted to, the patriarchal Royal Geographical Society.)" "Passionate about Arabia, then an inhospitable land of nomadic and warring tribes under Turkish control, she wrote this now classic account of her 1905 trip across the Syrian Desert from Jericho to Antioch. To read it is to be transported."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gertrude Bell was one of a select group of Western Arabists who helped create the modern Middle East. She was arguably the single most influential individual in Iraq when, in the aftermath of World War I, the British attempted to create a nation out of regions that had long been different provinces of the Ottoman Empire. She was called upon to produce this succinct but insightful volume us a guide for the military officers and civil servants who were attempting to create an Iraqi government." "A long dispute over whether the volume was actually written by her is settled in Dr. Paul Rich's introduction. It not only is written by Bell, but the reader can see in what she chooses to emphasize just what her awn views are on the course that the development of Iraq should take."--Jacket
