Best of ST in 2013: "Lawrence in Arabia"

On this edition of The Best of StudioTulsa, we listen back to our conversation with author and journalist Scott Anderson, who has reported from Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Sudan, Bosnia, El Salvador, and other war- and strife-torn countries. Anderson's newest book, which he speaks about on today's show, is "Lawrence in Arabia: War, Deceit, Imperial Folly and the Making of the Modern Middle East." One New York Times book critic has hailed this work as "fine, sophisticated, richly detailed...[and] filled with invaluably complex and fine-tuned information.... Eminently readable.... For those already fascinated by Lawrence's exploits and familiar with his written accounts of them, Mr. Anderson's thoughtful, big-picture version only enriches the story it tells.... Illuminating." You can read more about this book, and can also hear a free, on-demand "stream" of our entire interview with Anderson, at this link.
