From The Publisher:

With the lucidity and vividness that characterize all her work, two-time Pulitzer Prize winning historian, Barbara Tuchman, explores the complex relationship of Britain to Palestine that led to the founding of the modern Jewish state—and to many of the problems that plague the Middle East today.


"Barbara Tuchman is a wise and witty writer, a shrewd observer with a lively command of high drama."
—Philadelphia Inquirer
