On November 2, 1917, the British government, declared that they were in favour of “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.” A hundred years after its signing, Bernard Regan offers new insights into the imperial rivalries between Britain, Germany and the Ottomans, exposing British policy in the region as part of a larger geopolitical game. The book also provides a revealing account of life in Palestinian society at the time. Not just a history of states and policies, Regan manages to brilliantly present both a history of people under colonialism and an account of the colonizers themselves. Published by Verso Books.
