Summary
With new material retrieved from historical archives, scholar Schneer recounts in dramatic detail the public and private battles in the early 1900s for a small strip of land in the Middle East. He paints an indelible picture of how Arab nationalists, backed by Britain, fought for their future as Zionists in England battled diplomatically for influence
