Description
The troubles in Palestine between the end of World War II and the declaration of the state of Israel on May 14, 1948, ruptured the Middle East and left an indelible mark on the modern world. In gripping detail, this book chronicles that critical period that led, for the Jews, to the establishment of their national homeland, and for the Palestinians, to their Nakba—Catastrophe. Beyond official documents, private papers, biographies, and newspapers, international relations scholar Norman Rose quotes letters, novels, songs, plays, and personal reminiscences, vividly reconstructing the attitudes and experiences of the Britons, Jews, and Arabs who took part.

"Norman Rose's excellent new history of the Mandate of Palestine offers a detailed account of the final years of British rule.... Rose's history should be read by anyone interested in the history of Palestine, as well as anyone who wishes to understand how not to wage a successful counter-insurgency."—Times Literary Supplement (London)
