Description

Antique book Revolt in the Desert by T. E. Lawrence first edition american. Check out my other listing for a companion book by T. E. Lawrence, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom"

The text dates from 1919, when the fate of the Arabic-speaking parts of the Turkish Empire was undecided. From Egypt to Iraq, the Arabs were dominant, within the Turkish realm. Lawrence wrote well, with panache. His writings helped create the legend of his valor that endured throughout the century. As a fighter for the British Empire, his mission was to defeat the Turks and, in the end, to break up their dominion. As a result, we have today the divisions found in Palestine and Iraq, the legacy of British imperialism. Revolt in the Desert gives the reader a good sense of how Lawrence fomented rebellion, in his own words. Concrete and vivid narrative is matched by strong prose and description. This is a first-person adventure story, based on fact. In the end, the effect was long term. Lawrence promoted Arab self-awareness, militarism, and revolution, a trend that continues to the present.

The movie, "Lawrence of Arabia" is based on this book:

Lawrence of Arabia is a 1962 British-American epic historical drama film based on the life of T. E. Lawrence. It was directed by David Lean and produced by Sam Spiegel through his British company Horizon Pictures, with the screenplay by Robert Bolt and Michael Wilson. The film stars Peter O'Toole in the title role. It is widely considered one of the greatest and most influential films in the history of cinema. The dramatic score by Maurice Jarre and the Super Panavision 70 cinematography by Freddie Young are also highly acclaimed.[4]

The film was nominated for ten Oscars at the 35th Academy Awards in 1963; it won seven in total: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Score, Best Cinematography (Color), Best Art Direction (Color), Best Film Editing and Best Sound Mixing. It also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture - Drama and the BAFTA Awards for Best Film and Outstanding British Film.
