British Policy in the Middle East, 1914-1948: Bibliographies

This is a guide to researching British policy in the Middle East from 1914-1948


Bibliographies are works that list and describe other works to read on various topics.  Using them helps a scholar build a more comprehensive bibliography than using just our online catalog and various periodical indexes. Notice the date of publication, though, and be sure to use other sources to find more recently written material.
