Britain, Palestine and Empire: The Mandate Years, Hardback Book

Britain, Palestine and Empire: The Mandate Years Hardback

Edited by Rory Miller


In 1948, Britain withdrew from Palestine, bringing to an end its 30 years of rule in the territory.

What followed has been well-documented and is perhaps one of the most intractable problems of the post-imperial age.

However, the long-standing connection between Britain and Palestine before May 1948 is also a fascinating story.

This volume takes a fresh look at the years of the British mandate for Palestine; its politics, economics, and culture.

Contributors address themes such as religion, mandatory administration, economic development, policy and counter-insurgency, violence, art and culture, and decolonization.

This book will be valuable to scholars of the British mandate, but also more broadly to those interested in imperial history and the history of the West's involvement in the Middle East.
