    1. قرأت عن كثير من الستشرقين الذين جائو الى الجزيرة العربية و عاشو في الصحراء و بين البدو، لكن ان تفعل ذلك امرأة فهذا عجيب و ليس سهلاً! اضف الى ذلك انها بريطانية و ذكية و عالمة بالتاريخ و من اسرة ثرية ، كل ذلك لم يمنعها من الاقدام على مغامراتها المجنونة !هذا كان مما شدني للكتاب لكن [...]

    2. My impressions at the time I first read it:Shouldn't have been written, but evidently the easy research due to excessive letter writing between Ms. Bell and everyone under the sun was too hard for Mr. Winstone to resist.Ms. Bell was a diplomat, of sorts, in the Mid-East, through the First World War and after. She seems to have picked up a great deal of knowledge about, and some feelings for, the sensitivies of that region though her own travels, and then spent several years running aboutforcing [...]

    3. Nuanced review of Gertrude Bell and the implications of her life as an officer of the British empire: nybooks/articles/20691. If Bell, as an officer of the British Empire who was instrumental in drawing Iraq's national borders, was as conscious of the failures of the empire as the reviewer says she was, then as a figure who had "knowledge" and "contact" with the culture, she is a complex and interesting person to learn about. Exploring her life and her failures is worthwhile--especially to see h [...]

    4. This was one of the first bios on Gertrude, I believe much more scholarship has been done. Two addtional bios have come out in the past 3-4 years, plus the big one in 1995, the author's name escapes me.This book has a very personal tone, written by a fellow Briton the sympathy lies with GB and British intereset naturally. A little flowery, but I do want to re-read this one after reading the others. (This actually applies to the 1973 edition)

    5. Quite thorough, more so than the more recent and better publicized Gertrude Bell, Queen of the Desert, by Howell. Dryer, perhaps, but I was doing historical research. See mydeveloping Gertrude Bell encyclopedia article, which uses this as one of its references.

    6. couldn't get through this one before it was due back at the library. A very interesting woman, but the book is a bit dry. Hard to do with completely accurate historical figures, but I wish that we learned about these types in our history class! I never heard about her before reading Dreamers of the Day by Mary Russell - which is a fun read.

    7. سيرة شخصية لجترود بيل من خلال رسائلها التي كانت ترسلها لاهلها واصدقائها كنت اتمنى ان يكون التركيز اكبر على دورها المهم في ترسيم الحدود بين كل من العراق والكويت والسعودية ، ايضا من الملفت في الكتاب لقائها بالملك عبدالعزيز في العراق وهناك صورة قديمة جدا في الكتاب
