The author was an expert and specialist in the affairs of the Middle East. He writes here of the situation as it was in 1938 and the years leading up to that time. This was a crucial period for the Palestinians as vast numbers of Jews came into their country from all over the world.

The contrast between the promises made to the Arabs during the First World War, that when Turkey was defeated Arabia would have independence, and the assurance given to Zionists of a homeland in Palestine. In effect the land was promised to both sides. All this is examined in great detail. pp.32
