The period between the British occupation of Palestine in 1917 and the bloody riots of 1929 could be said to have set the mould for both the institutional and psychological climate for the Arab-Jewish conflict, even up to the present day. Decisions were made at the time that have had consequences far beyond their immediate horizon. In the second of this study, historian Bernard Wasserstein re-examines the role of the British, Arab, and Jewish decision-makers in the light of new evidence about this formative period of Middle Eastern politics.
