Discusses the three decades when Palestine was ruled by the British Empire; and Britain's promise to both Jews and Arabs that they would inherit the land. Segev reconstructs in vivid detail the tumultous era when anything seemed possible and everything went ary. Here are the legendary figures - General Allenby, Lawrence of Arabia, King Faisal, Chaim Weizman and David Ben-Gurion, all participants in a multicultural spectacle of revolution and decadence, prophecy and illusion. Includes an Index. "Brilliantly written . . . wonderfully readable and humane."- Independent
