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”.
