From Coexistence to Conquest : International Law and the Origins of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, 1891-1949 Paperback / softback

Description

This book shows how the Arab-Israeli conflict developed by looking beyond the legality argument to the men behind the policies. It argues that Zionism was adopted by the British Government in its 1917 Balfour Declaration, primarily as a way to control immigration.

The book places the violent reaction of the Palestinians to mass Jewish immigration in the context of Zionism, and revisits the controversies over the question of self-determination, and the partition of Palestine. Arguing that Israel was created through an act of conquest and subjugation, the book concludes with a sobering analysis of the conflict arguing that neither Jews nor Arabs were to blame for starting it.
