Notes:

I'm reading the 1946 Macmillan edition and find it difficult to abandon. Well written, full of ironic secrecy, and to top the whole thing and despite its fictional status, it has plenty of good information chunks. Characters are well drawn, the weakest is Matthews,the journalist. It's a good star to understand hebrew fanaticism. The arabs, as community, are less well described for they remain "arabs" as a collective, and their description is either a letany of common places or a peyorative assessment. One must keep in mind that "arabs" is almost a construct of the occidental mind. For them called themselves as "Egiptians", "Palestinian", or whatever nationality they belong to.
