Praise for Palestine 1936

  • "When did the conflict assume its current parameters? Oren Kessler argues that the crucial moment was an overlooked episode a decade before Israel’s birth. He makes a convincing case… Kessler is the first to tell this story from all three sides (British, Arab, Jewish) and use sources in all three languages (English, Arabic, Hebrew). He has done an exceptional job and opened new vistas on troubles past and present." One of the ten best books of 2023 - The Wall Street Journal
  • Want to understand the roots of the Middle East conflict? Read this book” -- Haaretz
  • Finalist, National Jewish Book Award
