Review:

"Nicosia has written the definitive study of this fascinating epoch in the histories of the participants. It is a masterful examination of every interwoven thread in the complicated tapestry of Nazi Germany's relations with the Middle East, as well as with Great Britain and the Zionist movement."

—Arnold Krammer, American Historical Review 

"The tight structure of the book, lucid narrative, and exhaustive use of relevant sources lend this book a definitive character."

—Martin Kramer, Middle Eastern Studies 

"A masterly piece of scholarship, Nicosia's historical study defines the aims and purposes of Nazi foreign policy toward Palestine in the thirties. A valuable addition to an often neglected area of Holocaust studies."

Dimensions, A Journal of Holocaust Studies 

"Francis R. Nicosia's volume is a pleasure to read; he does everything that scholars are taught to do when writing scholarly monographs, but which few do in such an easy and fluid style."

—Sara Reguer, Simon Wiesenthal Center Annual  

"[T]he appearance of Francis Nicosia's study of the Third Reich's approach to matters related to Palestine is a welcome event. . . . [A] valuable contribution."

—David Engel, Studies in Zionism

"[Nicosia's] own well-researched account shows how mistaken it is to infer from Arab enthusiasm for the new Nazi regime that Hitler's government supported Arab national self-determination in Palestine."

—Marjorie Lamberti, The Journal of Modern History

"It is a masterful examination of every interwoven thread in the complicated tapestry of Nazi Germany's relations with the Middle East, as well as with Great Britain and the Zionist movement." 

—Arnold Krammer, American Historical Review

"Apart from being a valuable contribution to Middle Eastern studies, this book should stimulate those "revisionist" historians who argue that appeasement of Hitler was a sensible policy, since his original aims constituted no threat to British interests. Nicosia finds no evidence of any substantial German encouragement to Arab nationalist movements during the 1930s. Earlier studies have thrown light on some of these matters, but this book is the first comrephensive treatment  of the whole question in English. It is clearly written, excellently produced and deserves to be widely read."

—J. S. F. Parker, The Middle East

"This well-written study is based on substantial research and will become the definitive work on this topic." 

—G.M. Kren, Choice

"Palestine is still a burning issue. There is something to support all sides in Nicosia's book. But more, there is something for all to reflect upon." 

—Hugh T. Murray, New German Critique
