David Cronin, “Balfour’s Shadow – A Century of British Support for Zionism and Israel”, Pluto Press 2017
Guilford Amnesty International group
Britain’s foreign secretary penned the Balfour Declaration in 1917, laying the foundations for the creation of Israel in historical Palestine. In this revealing study, journalist David Cronin analyses the motives behind British foreign policy and its consequences for both Palestine and Israel through to the present day. It is a timely reminder of Britain’s role in this ongoing conflict.
