Description - Political Diaries of the Arab World 6 Volume Hardback Set by R. Jarman
This work absorbs and adds to a title previously published by Archive Editions - The Jedda Diaries 1919-1940. The two additional volumes (5 and 6) bring the Diaries from 1919, when reports began, to 1965. The Diaries provide an on-the-spot account of local events in the detailed and disciplined format demanded by the British Foreign Office, and cover political events in Saudi Arabia, diplomatic analysis and interpretation, foreign relations, home affairs, civil administration and development, tribal affairs, economic affairs and local personalities. This publication creates, for the benefit of scholars, an orderly series of political reports for Saudi Arabia in a single 6-volume set, where previously the various reports lay scattered and unknown in numerous official files and no integrated collection was available. The value of the Diaries lies also in their frequency and their detail, creating a cumulative, consistent and reliable historical record.
