Review quote

The arguments presented in Britain's Unfulfilled Mandate for Palestine are new-in some cases, renewed-and important. For many years, the classical Zionist narrative posited a struggle between those striving for a Jewish State and the British administration of Palestine. At the same time, in the Palestinian and other Arab versions, the British were the villains and the Mandate the tool for the creation of Israel. Nick Reynold returns to a more balanced and nuanced account, whereby the British role was not manifestly pro-Zionist, but alternated between pro-Jewish and pro-Arab policies. Reynold has researched the subject with admirable thoroughness, and his tone is balanced and fair. All in all, he gives the reader a detailed and accurate picture. -- Daniel Gavron, author of Holy Land Mosaic: Stories of Cooperation and Coexistence between Israelis and Palestiniansshow more
