Although she admired the British military, her descriptions reveal the underlying racism, assumption of superiority and brutality of their occupation - a brutality which led to the 1920 Iraqui uprising and reverberates in events today. For example, ""Then a flying column marches out and administers what is humorously described as Ôa little injustice.Õ That is, they burn a reed-hut village or two and maybe gather up some plunder on their own account in the form of flocks and herds. "It is a cheerful little game, but it is very rapidly losing its popularity among the Arabs." (p 225.) This is a vividly written book, full of descriptions of the land and people, illustrated with photographs by the author and one still worth reading. 372 pp.
