It committed Britain to supporting the establishment in Palestine of "a National Home for the Jewish people," and its reverberations continue to be felt to this day. Now the entire fascinating story of the document is revealed in this impressive work of modern history. With new material retrieved from historical archives, scholar Jonathan Schneer recounts in dramatic detail the public and private fight in the early 1900s for the small strip of land in the Middle East, a battle that started when the governing Ottoman Empire took Germany's side in World War I. The Balfour Declaration paints an indelible picture of how Arab nationalists, backed by Britain, literally fought for their future while Zionists battled diplomatically for influence back in England. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to either side or even to most members of the British government, Prime Minister David Lloyd George was telling Turkey she could keep her flag flying over the disputed territory if only she would agree to aseparate peace. The key players in this watershed moment are rendered here in nuanced and detailed relief: Sharif Hussein, the Arab leader who secretly sought British support; Chaim Weizmann, Zionist hero, the folks~mensch who charmed British high society; T. E. Lawrence, the legendary "super cerebral" British officer who "set the desert on fire" for the Arabs; Basil Zaharoff, the infamous arms dealer who was Britain's most important back channel to the Turks; and other generals and prime ministers, soldiers and negotiators, who shed blood and cut deals to grab or give away the precious land. A book crucial to understanding the Middle East as it is today, The Balfour Declaration is a rich and remarkable achievement, a riveting volume about the ancient faiths and timeless treacheries that continue to drive global events.

About this Item: Yale University Press, New Haven, CT, 2001. Hardcover. First edition. First printing [stated]. Sewn binding. Paper over boards. xxvii, [3]527 p. Illustrations. Annals of Communism. Audience: General/trade. Published in association with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. From Wikipedia: "The Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee (JAC, was formed on Joseph Stalin's order in Kuibyshev in April 1942 with the official support of the Soviet authorities. It was designed to influence international public opinion and organize political and material support for the Soviet fight against Nazi Germany, particularly from the West. In 1952, as part of the persecution of Jews in the latter part of Stalin's rule (for example, the "Doctors' plot"), most prominent members of the JAC were arrested on trumped-up spying charges, tortured, and executed by firing squad after a secret mock trial. They were officially rehabilitated in 1988. Solomon Mikhoels, the popular actor and director of the Moscow State Jewish Theater, was appointed the JAC chairman. The JAC's newspaper in Yiddish language was called Einigkeit The JAC broadcast pro-Soviet propaganda to foreign audiences, assuring them of the absence of anti-Semitism in the USSR. In 1943, Mikhoels and Itzik Feffer, the first official representatives of the Soviet Jewry allowed to visit the West, embarked on a seven-month tour to the USA, Mexico, Canada and Britain to drum up their support. In the US, they were welcomed by a National Reception Committee chaired by Albert Einstein and by B.Z. Goldberg, Sholem Aleichem's son-in-law, and American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. The largest pro-Soviet rally ever in the United States was held on July 8 at the Polo Grounds, where 50, 000 people listened to Mikhoels, Fefer, Fiorello La Guardia, Sholem Asch, and Chairman of World Jewish Congress Rabbi Stephen Wise. Among others, they met Chaim Weizmann, Charlie Chaplin, Marc Chagall, Paul Robeson and Lion Feuchtwanger. In addition to the funds for the Russian war effort US$16 million raised in the US, $15 million in England, $1 million in Mexico, $750, 000 in the British Mandate of Palestine other help was also contributed: machinery, medical equipment, medicine, ambulances, clothes. On July 16, 1943, Pravda reported: "Mikhoels and Feffer received a message from Chicago that a special conference of the Joint initiated a campaign to finance a thousand ambulances for the needs of the Red Army." The visit also evoked the American public to the necessity of entering the European war. The official response to an inquiry by JAC about the participation of the Jewish soldiers in the war (1.8% of the total number). Some accuse Jews of the lack of patriotism and of hiding from the military service. Towards the end and immediately after the war, the JAC became involved in documenting the Holocaust. This ran contrary to the official Soviet policy to present it as atrocities against all Soviet citizens, not acknowledging the specific genocide of the Jews. Some of the committee members were vocal supporters of the State of Israel, established in 1948, something that Stalin supported very briefly. Their international contacts especially to the USA at the outset of the Cold War, would eventually make them vulnerable to charges that they had become politically incorrect. The contacts with American Jewish organizations resulted in the plan to publish the Black Book simultaneously in the US and the Soviet Union, documenting the Holocaust and participation of Jews in the resistance movement. The Black Book was indeed published in New York City in 1946, but no Russian edition appeared. The typeface galleys were broken up in 1948, when the political situation of Soviet Jewry deteriorated. In January 1948, Mikhoels was killed in Minsk by the Soviet secret police agents who staged the murder as a car accident. The members of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee were arrested. They were charged with disloyalty, bourgeois nationalism, cosmopolitanism, and planning to set up a Jewish republic in Crimea to serve US interest. Seller Inventory # 69188

About this Item: Harcourt PBrace & Company, New York, NY, 1993. Hardcover. 322 p. This is a Helen and Kurt Wolff book. Fima lives in Jerusalem but feels that he ought to be somewhere else. In the course of his life he has had several love affairs, written a book of poems that aroused some expectations and thought about the purpose of the universe and where his country has lost its way. From Wikipedia: "Amos Oz (born May 4, 1939, birth name Amos Klausner) is an Israeli writer, novelist, and journalist. He is also a professor of literature at Ben-Gurion University in Beersheba. Since 1967, he has been a prominent advocate and major cultural voice of a two-state solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Oz's work has been published in some 41 languages, including Arabic in 35 countries. He has received many honours and awards, among them the Legion of Honour of France, the Goethe Prize, the Prince of Asturias Award in Literature, the Heinrich Heine Prize and the Israel Prize. In 2007, a selection from the Chinese translation of A Tale of Love and Darkness was the first work of modern Hebrew literature to appear in an official Chinese textbook.Oz was born in Jerusalem, where he grew up at No. 18 Amos Street in the Kerem Avraham neighborhood. Roughly half of his fiction is set within a mile of his boyhood home. His parents, Yehuda Arieh Klausner and Fania Mussman, were Zionist immigrants from Eastern Europe. His father studied history and literature in Wilno, Lithuania, and after immigrating, worked as a librarian and writer. His maternal grandfather had owned a mill in Rovno, Poland, but moved with the family to Haifa in 1934. Many of Klausner's family members were right-wing Revisionist Zionists. His great uncle Joseph Klausner was the Herut party candidate for the presidency against Chaim Weizmann and was chair of the Hebrew literary society at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He and his family were distant from religion, disdaining what they perceived to be its irrationality. Yet he attended the community religious school Tachkemoni as the alternative was the socialist school affiliated with the labor movement, to which his family was decidedly opposed in their political values. The noted poet Zelda was one of his teachers. After Tachkemoni he attended Gymnasia Rehavia. His mother, who had suffered from depression, committed suicide when he was 12, repercussions of which he would explore in his memoir A Tale of Love and Darkness. Soon after, at the age of 15, he became a Labor Zionist, left home, and joined kibbutz Hulda. There he was adopted by the Huldai family (whose firstborn son Ron now serves as mayor of Tel Aviv) and lived a full kibbutz life. He also changed his surname to "Oz", Hebrew for "strength". Asked why he did not leave Jerusalem for Tel Aviv, he later said, "Tel Aviv was not radical enough only the kibbutz was radical enough". However by his own account he was "a disaster as a laborer.the joke of the kibbutz". When Oz first began to write, the kibbutz gave him one day a week to write; when his book My Michael became a best-seller, and he had become "a branch of the farm", three days; and in the eighties he had four days for writing, while teaching for two days and taking turns as a waiter in the kibbutz dining hall on Saturdays. Like most Israeli Jews, he served in the Israel Defense Forces. In the late 1950s he served in the kibbutz-oriented Nahal unit and was involved in border skirmishes with Syria; during the Six-Day War (1967) he was with a tank unit in Sinai; during the Yom Kippur War (1973) he served in the Golan Heights. After Nahal, Oz studied philosophy and Hebrew literature at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, where he was sent by the General Assembly of the kibbutz. After graduating in 1963, he worked as a teacher of literature and philosophy. His earliest publications were a few short articles in the kibbutz newsletter and the newspaper Davar. His first book Where the Jackals Howl, a collection of short stories, was published in 1965. His first novel Elsewhere, Ver. Seller Inventory # 67165

About this Item: Harcourt, New York, 2001. Hardcover. [6], 201, [1] p. Here is a book in a magical category of one, a truly outstanding, resonant and original work, in a bold and daring new form, which breaks the mould of storytelling. It tells an intimate, everyday story of grief, love, attachment and loss through the voices of a fabulous range of characters-in some ways it recalls Under Milk Wood. Nadia Danon is dead, of cancer. Her widower, Albert, an accountant (who bears an odd resemblance to Amos), is trying to put his life back together. Her son has gone off to lose or find himself in Tibet. The son's girlfriend, a filmmaker, is back in Israel, making friendly, daughterly overtures to Albert-his response is less platonic. Meanwhile she has another lover and a rather repellent film producer also lusts after her. There are other wonderful characters. Theirs are the voices and the stories. It is beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, sexy, poetic, full of echoes and allusions, and yet with an astonishing immediacy and contemporaneity., and pure joy to read. The Same Sea is Amos Oz's most adventurous and inventive novel, the book by which he would like to be remembered. The cast of characters ranges from a prodigal son to a widowed father who has taken in his son's enticing young girlfriend, who in turn sleeps with her boyfriend's close friend. The author himself receives phone calls from his characters, criticizing the way he portrays them in his novel. In this human profusion there is chaos and order, love and eroticism, loyalty and betrayal, and ultimately an extraordinary energy. "I wrote this book with everything I have. Language, music, structure--everything that I have.This is the closest book I've written. Close to me, close to what I always wanted.I went as far as I could."--Amos Oz From Wikipedia: "Amos Oz, (born May 4, 1939, birth name Amos Klausner) is an Israeli writer, novelist, and journalist.

SIGNED with a dated inscription ( December (?) 1986, by Conor Cruise O"Brien. 798p. b&w photo illustrations. notes. biliography. chronological table. index. world history. history of israel. ~ "This book is an excellent well~infonned overview of the history of modem Israel from its beginnings, written with deep sympathy and discriminating judgment. It is the outstanding introduction to the subject for the intelligent reader." ~Arthur Hertzberg, author, Thee Zionist Idea. This is the stirring portrait of a people and a nation besieged, the struggle of the Jews to establish, maintain and secure Israel, their heritage, and their future. Conor Cruise O'Brien, diplomat noted political analyst, and Irish Roman Catholic, has a unique sensitivity to the historic conjunctions of religious and national identity, and he creates a spellbinding portrait of the Zionist dream that illuminates modern Israel's achievements, failures, and dilemmas. The Siege begins in the waves of anti~Semitic violence that swept Eastern Europe at the end of the nineteenth century. The renewed persecutions and pogroms shattered the conviction of the assimilated Jews of Europe that the progress of their emancipation, begun with the American and French revolutions, was irreversible. Such was the ease of a young reporter who witnessed the infamous trial of the french Jewish officer Alfred Dreyfus. That reporter, Theodor Herzl, became the founder of international Zionism, a man mistaken for the messiah in his own time, and the man who more than any other made the political realization of Israel possible. The first book of The Siege, Covering the Zionist struggle from 1881 to Israel's creation in 1948, is the story of these monumental figures: Herzl, Chaim Weizmann, David Ben~Gurion and Vladimir Jabotinsky, each one contributing unique elements to the Zionist vision, The turbulent years of nation~building under Golda Meir Moshe Dayan, Menachem Begin and now Shimon Peres are the subjectof the second half. With a reporter's sense of drama, O'Brien takes us through the historic meeting at camp David, the Yom Kippur War, the occupation of Lebanon and the massacre in the camps to the present. Although sympathetic to Israel and the ideals that inspired its creation, O'Brien has the critical distance of an outsider, which he brings to evaluating the nation's policies. The Siege tackles such controversial issues as the displacement of Palestinian Arabs, the status of Oriental Jews, the Arab citizens of Israel, and the complex and enormous impact of the Holocaust on the Israeli psyche. O'Brien cuts through the wishful thinking that the permanent and lethal danger to the Jewish state will somehow disappear soon. This nation, he makes clear, is still under siege. "O'Brien is perceptive, insightful, yes, savvy, and is not afraid to draw judgments. This makes for a good read and for a genuine learning experience. The Siege is a book for those who wish to know where Israel came from, where it is going, and why it acts the way it does." ~Nathan Perlmutter, National Director, Anti~Defamation League of B'nai B'rith.

Printing. 22 cm, 279 pages, illus., former owner's stamp on front endpaper and top edge. Inscribed by the author. An intimate memoir of more than forty-five years of Jewish social-welfare work. Here are first-hand observations about Presidents Coolidge, Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson, and their relationships to Jewish affairs. Exceprts from an obituary posted on-line: "Maurrice Bisgyer, who as executive vice-president of B'nai B'rith for 27 years had helped direct the worldwide Jewish service organization during its era of greatest growth, died at the age of 75. Mr. Bisgyer was a pioneer in Jewish social service work beginning his 45-year career in 1919. He was one of a then handful of specialists that has since expanded into a large and widespread Jewish community "civil service." He became B'nai B'rith's chief administrative officer in 1937. David M. Blumberg, international president of B'nai B'rith, said that Mr. Bisgyer's career, "spanning the era of both Jewish cataclysm and triumph-the Holocaust and the rebirth of Jewish statehood-and the maturing of a native-born American Jewry, was a close-up seat to Jewish history in the making. He helped make much of that history too." Mr. Bisgyer's assignments took him to all parts of the world. He participated in meetings with many leaders of government and with Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI on Issues affecting the Jewish community. He was a member of the Ad Hoc Jewish delegation in 1945 at San Francisco where the United Nations Charter was prepared and ratified. Seller Inventory # 31537

Weizmann would become "universally recognized as the most authoritative figure in Jewish life" and was voted Israel's first president in 1949 (Encyclopedia Judaica, 430). His autobiography, which appeared that same year, details the story of his childhood, the long struggle for recognition of the Zionist Movement, and the triumph of statehood.

About this Item: New York: Jonathan Cape & Harrison Smith, 1931, 1931. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles gilt to spine. With the dust jacket. Housed in a dark pinkish red cloth folding case. Slight sunning around board edges, an excellent copy with the dust jacket somewhat toned and lightly marked, and with a few small chips and tears to the extremities. First edition, first printing, presentation copy to Albert Einstein, inscribed by the author, "To Albert Einstein, for his true Zionism, Meyer Levin", on the front free endpaper and dated 6 February 1931. Yehuda is an early Zionist novel by Meyer Levin (1905-1981), based on his kibbutz experiences after he "gave us his job as star reporter and columnist for the Chicago Daily News and went to work on the soil of Palestine among the members of farm-communes engaged in founding a new Israelite nation" (jacket front flap). After the war Levin wrote a play based on the Diary of Anne Frank, with the approval of the Frank family, though it was never produced. His early books are very scarce indeed. This extraordinary inscription underlines the profound, complex, and controversial relationship Einstein had with the Zionist movement, and his own Jewishness. He was not a practising Jew, and a trenchant opponent of nationalism in all its guises, but nonetheless felt a strong kinship with the Jewish race and sympathy for their history of suffering. It was a sense of solidarity no doubt strengthened by the persecution he experienced in Germany during the 20s and 30s for his "Jewish Science". He began to lend his efforts and celebrity to assist Zionist causes, and on his first trip to America in 1921 he raised money for the World Zionist Organisation for the building of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He shared a place with Sigmund Freud on the university's first board of governors. In February of 1923 Einstein made his only trip to Palestine, where for twelve days he toured the country, and even walked around Jerusalem with British High Commissioner of Palestine Sir Herbert Samuel. Uniquely for Einstein, he kept a diary during his time there. He observed the Wailing Wall, "where dull ethnic brethren, with their faces turned to the wall, bend their bodies to and fro in a swaying motion. Pitiful sight of people with a past but without a present." Einstein remained emphatic in support for the Jews' right to settle in Palestine, but opposed the idea of a Jewish state. His vision was for the fostering of a nation where Jews and Arabs could peacefully coexist, infamously telling the Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann in 1929 that if this could not be achieved "then we have learned absolutely nothing during our 2,000 years of suffering." The horrors of the Holocaust did nothing to uncomplicate his views, and in 1948, after the Deir Yassin massacre was carried out against an Arab village by the "Freedom Party" (Trnuat Haherut) during the so-called "War of Independence", Einstein was one of the authors of an open letter to the New York Times, 4 December 1948, with several other Jewish signatories, going so far as to describe them as "a political party closely akin in its organisation, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties". Nonetheless, on the death in 1952 of Weizmann, who had been made Israel's first president, Einstein was offered the post. He declined, but in expressing his regrets he reconfirmed his commitment to the "true Zionism" invoked in Levin's presentation, declaring: "I am the more distressed over these circumstances because my relationship to the Jewish people has become my strongest human bond, ever since I became fully aware of our precarious situation among the nations of the world.".
