Outstanding Biography of a Great Leader During Great, Tragic Times 7 mars 2014
Par Charles Wm Anderson @wordpress - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Although the movie Lawrence of Arabia departed significantly from reality in many aspects, it's portrayal of Faisal was more accurate than one might suppose.

This 669 page book, Faisal I of Iraq, is not a fast read, but it is a terrific eye-opener regarding not merely the man who would come to lead two nations, first Syria, then, following a French initiated regime change, Iraq. It very well shows a careful, wise, gradualist young man maturing from conservative loyalist to the Ottoman Empire leadership, to a firebrand revolutionary leader, thence to a statesman who sought a united Arabia.

Mind you, emerging such was a dramatic Herculean challenge, when one realizes the his main benefactor in wresting free from one tyrant would become his greatest detriment to build a nation capable of greatness equal to that benefactor.

Pity Faisal was lost to the world at a point so early in Iraq's history.

Not only did I enjoy the detailed history of the period immediately before and during the revolt in the desert, but I loved the photographs in this Kindle edition.

I should note, my wife's grandfather was a member of Faisal's inner circle. Rafik Jabbour of Lebanon was Consul for Persia (Iran) and, later, to Egypt. Jabbour was a hero cited in Enlightenment Through a Needle's Eye.

I recommend Faisal I of Iraq for anyone interested in early 20th Century history of the Arabs, and for anyone trying to get an understanding of the current so-called Arab Spring and just why western nations are so little trustd by the region's dissidents, terrorists, and the disenfranchised, as well as why our governments are despised by leaders within the Middle East - Faisal I of Iraq by Ali A. Allawi is a must-read.

This one won't be made into a movie. 8 mai 2014

I suspect many people will approach this booking looking for a counterpoint to T.E. Lawrence's version of history - and of Faisal himself - as expressed in 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom.' If so, they may be disappointed. The overview of Faisal's early life is little more than a sketch, and the account of the war years is brief, and not strengthened by Allawi's heavy leaning on Seven Pillars' as a source, which is problematic given his unresolved ambiguity about Lawrence's credibility.
Where the book really gets going is after 1918, digging enthusiastically into the complexities of Syrian politics and the Paris peace conference. This section acts as the real background to the core of this political biography: Faisal's troubled rule in Iraq. One would have to have much more detailed knowledge of Iraqi history than I do to properly assess Allawi's treatment of the large cast of characters, but overall he appears to at least be attempting even-handedness, and there are few heroes or villains in this book (although he misses few opportunities to suggest that the French made a mistake in evicting Faisal from Syria).
Anyone with an interest in the governance of developing nations, especially those with complex cultural mixes, should find this biography interesting. One of the core themes is the difficulty Faisal faced in balancing his objectives - which depended on developing and maintaining his political legitimacy within Iraq - with his obligations to the British who, in pursuance of their own interests, placed and to some extent kept him in power. It is not difficult to find modern echoes of this problem, which was not new in the last decades of imperialism and will not end with the War on Terror. Ali Allawi appears to recognize that history will never treat Faisal with great admiration, but his generally sympathetic portrait should give pause to those who would summarily condemn or dismiss him as a failure or a puppet.

Extraordinarily well written 1 septembre 2014
Par José Saavedra - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
It is a remarkable accomplishment and one that requires the highest degree of education and intelligence to write such a comprehensive biography of the unique figure of King Faisal. It covers every aspect to be expected in such a rich, endearing and subtle personality operating in a historical environment of the greatest complexity. Professor Allawi’s nuanced descriptions are essential for understanding the birth of Iraq as a nation containing so many different groups and for making sense of the current news. They are well worth the effort of concentration required!

The photos are good and there are some useful maps, although a few more would have been welcome.

Inexcusably, I have counted over three dozen typographical errors, which demonstrate a less than perfect proof reading effort. These detract from the pleasure of reading such a good book and I would encourage Yale University Press to deal with these as promptly as possible.

Given the interesting curriculum of professor Allawi, I recommend a look at his home page: http://www.aliallawi.com/.

An extraordinary book. Faisal is a subject in need of work as thoroughly researched and well written as this one.
For those interested in the modern history of the Middle East this book is a must read.

Great 26 juillet 2014
Par Michael E Sweeney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I would have called it "Foibles of Faisal" - a great work, seriously.
I was hoping for the story of how the borders were drawn, and details of talks between the Brits (Percy Cox) and the other amirs and why the borders were drawn where they were (e.g. between Iraq and Kuwait, Saudi and Yemen). The conflict between the Saudis and Hashemites is mentioned in passing (one sentence).

When Alfred Mond, the Zionist billionaire, arrived in Baghdad (1928?), predictably there were riots.
Faisal ordered corporal punishment for the rioters.
Safe to assume Faisal had a "financial understanding" with Chaim Weizmann going back to 1918.
