balfour - attempting to square the circle, 7 Sep 2010
The 1917 Balfour declaration makes commitments both to the Jewish people in offering them a home in Palestine & at the same time a commitment to the indigenous Arab population, which appears at odds with the promise made to the Jews. This book explains in detail the events leading up to the Declaration & the consequences arising from it. It is a really worthwhile endeavour for anyone interested in events in the Middle East to this day.
