Zionists began calling for a national Jewish home in Palestine in the nineteenth century, but the birth of Israel did not take place until 1948. This anthology presents the debates between Arab inhabitants and Jewish settlers--both of whom claim historic rights to the territory that is now Israel.
"Because of the even-handed presentation, the title makes a strong and lasting impression. The writings are well chosen. A thoughtful and well-delineated addition."
