This dissertation proposes to trace the influence of one Englishwoman, Gertrude Bell, in Great Britain's relations with the Middle Eastern provinces of the collapsing Ottoman Empire during and immediately following the First World War. It is more specifically concerned with her role in the establishment of the modern state of Iraq where for one brief time, from October 1920 to August 1921, she was the dominant political figure.
