Atiyah, Edward

Entry updated 18 November 2019. Tagged: Author.

(1903-1964) Lebanese-born author in the UK permanently from 1945; his study of Jewish-Arab conflicts in the Middle East, The Arabs (1955), supplied arguments utilized (sometimes ruthlessly) by all sides in the long tragedy. He is of sf interest for The Eagle Flies from England (1960), an Alternate History tale in which Napoleon's parents emigrate to Britain in 1769; their son – displaying military and political genius – becomes Governor-General of India, soon declaring himself Emperor and attacking Europe via the Middle East. He is defeated at Waterloo in 1814. [JC]
