T.E. Lawrence, Aaron Aaronsohn, and the Seeds of the Arab Israeli Conflict

Join the Beth El book club for the first of two meetings as participants will discuss the book “Lawrence and Aaronsohn: T.E. Lawrence, Aaron Aaronsohn, and the Seeds of the Arab Israeli Conflict” by Ronald Florence.

As the Arab-Israeli conflict continues to plague the Middle East, historian Ronald Florence offers extraordinary new insights on its origins. This is the story of T. E. Lawrence, the young British officer who became famous around the world as Lawrence of Arabia, Aaron Aaronsohn, an agronomist from Palestine, and the antagonism that divided them over the fate of the dying Ottoman Empire during World War I. It was a clash of visions that set Arab nationalism and Zionism on a direct collision course that reverberates to this day.

Ronald Florence was born in California, educated at Berkeley and Harvard, and taught at colleges and universities, ran a foundation, raced sailboats, and raised Cotswold sheep in Stonington, CT before turning to full-time writing. He lives in Providence, Rhode Island, and travels frequently to Europe and the Middle East to research his novels and narrative histories.
