Records of the Hashimites is a rare and valuable publication, an encyclopaedia of authentic historical documents, tracing in detail the destiny of the Hashimites, the most ancient and distinguished family in the Middle East. The editors have located diaries, secret reports and a wealth of previously unpublished correspondence - some of it ancient, much of it normally hidden or scattered in obscure archives, some of great political importance and all of historic interest. Records of the Hashimites focuses on the 20th century and provides the reader with a detailed study of the convergence of Hashimite and British interests that led to the Arab Revolt in the First World War and the establishment of Hashimite rule in Iraq, Jordan and, briefly, Syria following the defeat of Turkey.
