Middle East memories by E. H. R. Altounyan
With an Armenian father and a Northern Irish mother, the speaker has lived all his life between two worlds-thirty years in the United Kingdom, forty in the Middle East, mostly in Aleppo. It was his father who gave the Syrian town its first modern hospital. Looking back over the memories of sixty-five years, not all of them ' medical history,' he thinks it no wonder that we often find the Middle Easterner ' a difficult, cocksure individualist addicted to energetic improvisations, not only in medicine but in politics and commerce.
E. H. R.
