This is an auction for ONE PALESTINE, COMPLETE by Tom Segev.

"Understanding the events in Palestine during the first half of the 20th century is critical to understanding the contemporary obstacles confronting the Middle East peace process. Israeli journalist Segev has written a detailed, even-handed account of these events, which led to the establishment of the state of Israel and the creation of the Palestinian refugee problem. By relying on a wealth of archival material, the author demonstrates how and why the British ultimately favoured the Zionist forces over the Arabs and how they helped the nascent Zionist movement defeat the Palestinians and other Arabs. Highly recommended."
- Library Journal (US)

"Israeli Segev looks at the period from 1917 to 1948, ‘an era of terror and promise’, when Britain ruled over Palestine and the current conflicts of the area were germinating. Using archival records, diaries, and letters, Segev provides an incredibly detailed account of the historical roots of the animosity between the Jews and Arabs in Palestine. More than 700 years of Muslim rule ended when the British push into the Middle East in the early 1900s, bringing Palestine under its control. The region was promised to both Arabs and Jews, but British policy tended to favour the Jews following the Balfour Declaration. Eventually, aggressive Zionist efforts opened the country to Jewish immigration, providing shelter for Jews fleeing the Holocaust and setting up conditions for the inevitable conflict that followed and continues. This is a stunning, absorbing work."
