Very Good. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall 0297776231 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Crease to corner back cover. Since Israel's foundation in 1948, her existence has been attacked in many ways: in four wars, in propaganda onslaughts, and in repeated denials of her right to exist at all as a sovereign Jewish state. In this book, the autho examines some of the crucial, and controversial, aspects of the roots and rights of Jewish statehood. He describes how Israel came into being, looks at her historical roots, and examines the arguements for her being a specifically Jewish state. Using many documents which have not been published before-the result of his wide development of Zionism, the evolution of the Balfour Declaration, refugee policy in both Whitehall and Washington, the impact on the Second World War, and the predominant part played by British policy-makers in the emergence of the new state. The Jewish search for a secure haven, for dignity, and for independence, was a fierce struggle in every generation. Persecution was ever-present, culminating in the horrors of the Holocaust. promises were made, and then broken; hopes were raised, only to be dashed. In this major new study, Martin Gilbert highlights the turning points, the prejudices, the moments of deception, and the terrible anguish which led to the birth of the State of Israel.
