But Eden’s use of amphetamines was potentially more worrying as he was a man whose childhood, as the son of a volatile, temperamental father, had left him psychologically fragile and short-tempered.
But what Eden didn’t know was that, over time, amphetamine users acquire tolerance and tend to up their doses, thereby exposing them to irritability, mood swings, perceptual changes and paranoia.
Eden wanted to reverse the nationalisation, but he also displayed a paranoid personal animosity to Colonel Nasser that showed all the hallmarks of man in the grip of amphetamines.

 The Historian: Suez reconsidered: Anthony Eden's Orientalism a... @ HighBeam Research   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Eden himself left extensive papers at the University of Birmingham, and these have been used by most of his biographers to good effect, supplementing the public record and the records of other actors; but they are still incomplete as they reflect careful editing on the part of his estate.
Eden is fairly sympathetic throughout the paper, allowing that the invaders who overthrew the "decadent Empire of the once-glorious Sassanians" were simply the "then-unlettered followers of the prophet," (18) and disagrees with accepted views on the estimation of various poets.
Eden was also, at this time, still keenly aware politically; Wrangel's presence in Crimea, a watershed event of the Russian Civil War that directly affected traffic through Constantinople, makes an appearance in his correspondence, and he shows great concern about "getting to the truth" of the political situation in the region.
