The Arab Bulletin was founded on the initiative of T. E. Lawrence to provide 'a secret magazine of Middle East politics'. Lawrence edited the first number on 6 June 1916 and thereafter sent numerous reports to it, enabling readers to follow, week by week, the Arab Revolt, which ended Ottoman domination in the Arabian peninsula. The British Foreign Office have described it as 'a remarkable intelligence journal so strictly secret in its matter that only some thirty copies of each issue were struck off... Nor might the journal be quoted from, even in secret communications'. All 114 journals are here published for the first time, with an introduction by the late Dr Robin Bidwell.
