Palestine: Retreat from the Mandate

By Michael J. Cohen
Holmes & Meier, 1978
237 pp. $23.00

The dilemmas and contradictions of British policy from the Peel Report and the 1939 White Paper to the advent of the Labour government at the end of World War II. Unpublished British and Zionist documents back up the author's theme of increasing British concern with the pan-Arab dimension of the problem, and of the inevitable turn of the Zionists from Weizmann's to Ben-Gurion's strategy.
