Decision on Palestine: How the U.S. Came to Recognize Israel
Decision on Palestine: How the U.S. Came to Recognize Israel
By Evan M. Wilson
Hoover Press, 1979, 244 pp

Evan Wilson's close involvement in American policymaking on Palestine in the 1940s gives him a unique vantage point for writing the diplomatic history of those critical years. This is no memoir but a careful, objective and revealing job of research, in which Wilson probes for the national and personal reasons behind the key decisions.
