Iraq and Eleanor Egan's The war in the cradle of the world by Eleanor Franklin Egan( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chronicling the British military's invasion of Iraq in 1917, Eleanor Franklin Egan was an intrepid American journalist whose autobiographical account of her time spent amongst British officers describes the relationship between British and American forces in the Middle East during and just after World War I. Egan's account of military life and the actions taken by British officers to secure the British Empire's 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 Kingdom's position in the Gulf, Paul J. Rich offers an analysis of Egan's work that will allow contemporary readers to see that what is going on in Iraq now is nothing new."--BOOK JACKET

Elixir of Empire : the English public schools, ritualism, freemasonry, and imperialism by P. J Rich( Book )

8 editions published between 1989 and 1993 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to understand the British Empire, one must understand the British public school and its rituals. The 19th century saw an expansion in the public schools, which seized the opportunity to prepare boys for service in the Empire. The schools developed an elaborate systems of totems and talismans. Their rituals were reenacted all over the world. The rich symbolism of schooldays prepared colonial administrators for staging the Imperial drama. The public schools also became deeply involved with freemasonry, a secret fraternal society. The final chapter of the book provides an assessment of the public school in post-imperial days and notes that in the 20th century the schools have placed pragmatism over principles in order to survive political threats.

Iraq and Gertrude Bell's The Arab of Mesopotamia by Gertrude Lowthian Bell( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 90 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
