A leading authority on the British Mandate in Palestine and the rise of the State of Israel.

He includes previously unpublished material and an introductory chapter surveying the changing views and interpretations of the Balfour Declaration over the past 100 years.

Professor Cohen’s essays are essential reading for anyone wanting a clear understanding of the Middle Eastern context of the Palestine Mandate and the rise of the State of Israel during this period.
