white titles spine; "This book forms one of the most significant volumes of Dame Freya Stark's autobiography in that it covers the period of World War Two, recalling the vicissitudes of 1939 and the subsequent tide of war. The author herself was living and working in the Middle East for the Foreign Office and the Ministry of Information where Propaganda and Persuasion were the tools of her trade. In 'Dust In The Lion's Paw' she uses this war-time experience to offer an informed historical perspective of the war, and of Britain's role. One of the best of the many autobiographies that Miss Stark has written. Her talent for friendship amounts to genius and she was able to establish relations of confidence and even affection with Civil Servants, sheikhs, bimbashis, peasants, camel drivers, monsignori, and the plump denizens of oriental harems."; including index - 297 pages.
