This is a wry account of Middle Eastern history from the First World War to the years following the Second. Laurence Grafftey-Smith was a member of the Levant Consular Service from 1916-1947. He gives a fascinating glimpse into the machinations and negotiations that lurked behind the newspaper headlines, including Churchill's famous encounter with King Ibn Saud in Cairo, which the author helped to arrange. Bright Levant gives a unique insight into a vanished world.
