John Bagot Glubb (1897-1986) soldier and author whose career involved him in the politics of the Middle East. Two autograph letters evidencing his paranoia regarding the 'Jewish lobby' and Israel. The letters are dated the 22nd and the 25th February 1975 and both are to Philip Dosse, publisher of a stable of magazines including 'Books and Bookmen' for whom Glubb was a reviewer. The letters of two and four pages, respectively highlight Glubb's view of the Israeli government (critical) and he suggests that his books cannot be published in the US due to the publishers' fear of offending Jewish firms. He writes that he was the object of anonymous telephone threats when on lecture tours there and fears that his review might fall foul of the Race Relations Act. Very legible. VG condition.
