With the likes of Philby, Doughty, Betram Thomas and others having already published their experiences in Arabia, Dickson felt it necessary to outline his own credentials: "I have had the good fortune, during my seven years' life among the Muntafiq and Khazail Arabs of the Euphrates, my two years' duty in Bahrain and Hasa, and last but not least during my subsequent seven years' sojourn in Kuwaut as H.M.'s Political Agent, to have lives, moved about and camped among the nomad Badawin in their own tents and as one of themselves." This excellent study of the Bedouin draws on these years. The map first appeared in the third impression.
