Gertrude Bell : queen of the desert, shaper of nations by Georgina Howell ( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 1,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
She has been called the female Lawrence of Arabia, which, while not inaccurate, fails to give Gertrude Bell her due. She was at one time the most powerful woman in the British Empire: a nation builder, the driving force behind the creation of modern-day Iraq. Born into privilege in 1868, Bell turned her back on Victorian society, choosing to read history at Oxford and going on to become an archaeologist, spy, Arabist, linguist, author, poet, photographer, and mountaineer. She traveled the globe several times, but her passion was the desert--her vast knowledge of the region made her indispensable to the British government during World War I. As an army major on the front lines in Mesopotamia, she supported the creation of an autonomous Arab nation for Iraq, promoting and manipulating the election of King Faisal to the throne and helping to draw the borders of the fledgling state.--From publisher description

Daughter of the desert : the remarkable life of Gertrude Bell by Georgina Howell ( Book )

"Archaeologist, spy, Arabist, linguist, author, poet, photographer, mountaineer and nation builder, Gertrude Bell was born in 1868 into a world of privilege and plenty. The daughter of a wealthy industrialist, Gertrude turned her back on house parties and debutante balls, choosing instead to read history at Oxford, where she took a first in only two years." "Having scaled Oxford's ivory tower and become frustrated by the conventional life she was expected to lead, she took up mountaineering with the same skill and dedication she had applied to her studies, ultimately conquering the Alps' most challenging peak, the Matterhorn. But her passion was the desert, where she travelled alone, initially as an archaeologist. Soon, however, through her knowledge of Arabic and tribal affiliations she became indispensable to the Cairo Intelligence Office of the British government. A friend and colleague of T.E. Lawrence during the First World War, and at the time considerably more famous than he, she went on to advise the Viceroy of India, then travelled from Delhi to the front line in Mesopotamia as an army major. There she took up and steadily upheld the principle of an autonomous Arab nation for Iraq, promoting and manipulating the election of King Faisal to the throne and helping to draw the borders of the fledgling state, which would prosper under the same dynasty for thirty-two years." "Daughter of the Desert is her story, drawing on Gertrude's own writings, both published and unpublished. It is a portrait of a woman who transcended the restrictions of her class and age and in so doing created a remarkable and enduring legacy."--BOOK JACKET
