In Arabia of the Wahhabis Philby tells the story of the last four months of his wartime mission to Ibn Saud, then Emir of Najd. “ This volume continues and complete the record of my sojourn in Arabia during the years 1917 and 1918. in effect, therefore, it forms a third volume of the Heart of Arabia and, with the two volumes of that work, can at any rate claim to present a picture of Arabia at the end of perfectly definite period of its evolution.”
