Praise

“A major figure in the creation of modern-day Iraq.” –Los Angeles Times
 
Desert Queen, as timely as today’s headlines, plucks Gertrude Bell out of the shadow of Lawrence of Arabia.” –The Boston Globe
 
“Wallach has done an outstanding job of bringing Gertrude Bell to life.” –The Dallas Morning News
 
“A richly textured biography of a . . . woman who devoted her life to knowing the desert Arabs better, perhaps, than any other European of her day. . . . Wallach comfortably commands the tangled political and diplomatic history of the Middle East.” –Chicago Tribune
