historian Jeffrey Herf sheds new light on how a Jewish state
came to be forged in the shadow of World War II and the Holocaust and
the onset of the Cold War.
Professor Herf's forthcoming book exposes the
political realities that underpinned international support and
opposition to Zionist aspirations in Palestine in the 1940s. Drawing
on archival documents and the public record, he offers an
unprecedented account of this contested past and the role of the
United States, the Arab States, the Palestine Arabs, the Zionists,
and key European governments.
