An enlightening and original account of an important and neglected aspect of Churchill's strategic and political world-view. It forces us to rethink what we know about the origins of the modern Middle East. Essential reading for Churchill scholars and general readers alike." - Richard Toye, author of Churchill's Empire and The Roar of the Lion, Professor of Modern History,University of Exeter; "Warren Dockter has written the first comprehensive account of Churchill's lifelong and many-sided engagement with the Muslim world. Combining meticulous research with insight and imagination, he restores to its rightful place a theme of crucial importance for the assessment of the great man's character and career." - Paul Addison, author of Churchill: The Unexpected Hero, Honorary Fellow, University of Edinburgh; "A panoramic and insightful overview of Churchill's lifelong relationship with the Muslim world which reveals it to be both more complex and more interesting than is generally portrayed." - Allen Packwood, Director of the Churchill Archives Centre University of Cambridge; "Warren Dockter's timely and important book has illuminated Churchill's relationship with the Islamic world which has previously been so misunderstood. It is necessary reading for Churchill scholars and anyone interested in the Middle East. Truly a work of monumental scholarship." - Boris Johnson, author of The Churchill Factor; "Re-establishes Churchill as a figure of key importance to the Islamic World in the Twentieth Century" - Explaining History Podcast; 'A useful work, above all because it deals in detail with two figures who helped shape his [Churchill's] preconceptions.'- WM. Roger Louis, Times Literary Supplement.
