The Unmaking of the Middle East

Jeremy Salt

University of California Press

This chapter examines the fate of Sharif Husain of Mecca after the Arab Revolt. It explains that the sharif trusted the British, who later abandoned him, causing him to be driven out of the Hijaz by the Su'udis in 1924. The chapter suggests that what the sharif regarded as Britain's betrayal of himself and the Arabs was a pivotal point in the modern history of the Middle East.

Keywords:   Sharif Husain, Mecca, Arab Revolt, British, Hijaz, Su'udis, Middle East, modern history
