By: John E. Mack (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
John Mack explores the relationship between Lawrence's inner life and his historically significant actions. Interviews, correspondence, access to War Office dispatches and unpublished letters provide the basis for Macks's investigation of the psychological dimensions of Lawrence's personality. In addition, Mack examines the history, politics, and sociology of the time in order to weigh the real forces with which Lawrence contended and which impinged upon him.
John Mack, M.D., was Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, and Founding Director of the Center for Psychology and Social Change, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
