This book, first published in 1978, examines the confrontation of the Jewish community of Palestine - the Yishuv - with its Arab question in the period immediately following World War 1, a period of excitement and uncertainty. Its main focus is on the different ways in which the men and women of the Yishuv perceived and defined the question of relations with the Arabs, and how they proposed to deal with the problems that arose.
