Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Miller (Mediterranean studies, King's College, London) examines the relationship between three bodies established in London between November 1944 and August 1945 to oppose Zionist aspirations in Palestine. He illustrates how these three bodies<-->the Jewish Fellowship, the Arab Office, and the Committee for Arab Affairs<-->shared a determined opposition to a Jewish state in Palestine and how they shared a tendency to view Zionism primarily as a propaganda phenomenon that had to be countered with more propaganda. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
