Palestine: The Reality: The Inside Story of the Balfour Declaration
The Balfour Declaration of 1917 is a document that profoundly affected the Middle East. Palestine: The Reality is an expertly researched inside story of the Declaration. It is also a vivid and personal account in which J.M.N. Jeffries exposes the real authors and progenitors of the Balfour Declaration, along with their personal stories, motives, conspiracies, and political aims. The author also details the other international players who were involved in the creation of the Balfour document, and offers a clearsighted perspective on the broken agreements with Britain's Arab allies that enabled the Declaration and dispossessed the Palestinian Arabs of their homeland.
