Revolt in the Desert, the abridged version of Seven Pillars of Wisdom—T. E. Lawrence’s rendition of the overt and covert journeys in the Middle East in support of the Arab rebellion against Turkish Ottoman rule—entails a journey in itself—in time, space and myth—in order to come to grips with history and its complex ramifications. Lawrence knew the terrain well, had a clear agenda and was primarily interested in Realpolitik , political expediency and military pragmatism, and certainly not in the magnificence of the East or its cultural and mythical splendours.
