"The Ottoman Twilight in the Arab Lands
presents five interesting memoirs of exceptional characters and comes in a perfect time where academia and research has been interested more often in the contemporary of Arab-Turkish relation and history. The chosen memoirs represent the post-Ottoman history which was published during the early stages of the Kemalist Republic of Turkey. Although the personality of Jamal Pasha has been central to all pages of all memoirs, they covered other issues, most importantly, the Ottoman military and rule in the Arab lands, executions of the Arab nationalists, politics of governing the Arabs, minorities, and military. ... [It is] a good source for researchers of the history of the Ottomans in the Arab peninsula, Syria, Lebanon and Palestine, history of Turkish-Arab relation and studies of collective memories and literature, and the personality of the owners of memories as well as Jamal and Fahreddin Pashas."
