"An essential reference book...This impressive book is not just for the shelf, but also to be sampled periodically as a reminder of the depth of the passions..." -- William B. Quandt, The Brookings Institution
An essential reference work for anyone wishing to grasp the complexities of the clash between Zionism and Palestine nationalism. Walid Khalidi includes a wide variety of fascinating material from diverse viewpoints and brings his own learning into sharp focus in an introductory chapter. This impressive book is not just for the shelf, but also to be sampled periodically as a reminder of the depths of the passions that keep the Arab-Israeli conflict alive. -- William B. Quandt, Brookings Institute
This is an indispensable collection of documents for those who wish to understand certain important aspect of Palestine. Walid Khalidi's introduction is the best description and explanation known to me of the way in which the indigenous inhabitants of the country were gradually and inexorably dispossessed. -- Albert Hourani, St. Antony's College, Oxford
