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.

In Israel, Eban has held many cabinet positions, including that of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs. He was a member of the Knesset for decades. This is a passionate account of Israel's first five decades, written by one of its founding fathers. It is both an objective and subjective assessment of those history-making years. It was also the subject of a five-part PBS series. This is a political and social history at the highest level, presented without fear or favor, a candid testament written at a time when Eban was not constrained by being in office or serving as a diplomat. Eban traces Israel through all the fluctuations of its fortunes to which he was a witness and a participant: from its embattled beginnings and first struggle for international recognition, through the successive wars and diplomatic crises, to the conflicts existing at the time this work was written.

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

About this Item: NP, London, 1936. Hardcover. Condition: g to vg. Manuscript. Rare collection of two Minute-Books from the North London Zionist Society (1917/18), and the Council of the British Section of the World Jewish Congress (1936-37): - Minute-Book from the North London Zionist Society (1917/18) [SIGNED]. Quarto. Unpaginated. [68] leaves. Original half decorative cloth over moire covered boards. This minute-book contains the manuscript notes pertaining to the meetings (34) held by the North London Zionist Society between January 7, 1917, and December 31, 1918. The notes are written on the first 39 leaves. Affiliated to the English Zionist Federation (EZF), the North London Zionist Society supported the reestablishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, then an area controlled by the Ottoman Empire.* This minute-book is particularly interesting in the sense that it was written at a turning point in the history of Zionism. World War I was in its fourth year, and the conflict raised hopes among Zionists that the crumbling Ottoman Empire will eventually break up. They hoped to attain support from one of the Great Powers for increased Jewish immigration and eventual sovereignty in Palestine, and they eventually succeeded thanks to their chief spokesman, Chaim Weizmann, a bright statesman and a scientist highly respected in Great Britain and well versed in European diplomacy. In support of the Zionist cause, his skillful negotiations with the Foreign Office were climaxed on November 2, 1917, by the letter from the foreign secretary to Lord Rothschild, which became known as the Balfour Declaration. This document declared the British government's "sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations," viewed with favor "the establishment in Palestine of a National Home for the Jewish People," and announced an intent to facilitate the achievement of this objective. The Balfour Declaration radically changed the status of the Zionist movement. It promised support from a major world power and gave the Zionists international recognition. That day, Zionism was transformed by the British pledge from an utopy into a legitimate and achievable undertaking. The minutes of the 34 meetings featured in this manuscript indicate this event (see the entry for November 25, 1917), and discuss the following projects and resolutions: decision to reorganize the Society and place Zionist propaganda in the North of London on a firmer basis (1/7/1917); the announcement that Mr. Nahum Sokolow (Zionist leader, author, translator, and a pioneer of Hebrew journalism) has agreed to address the first public meeting of the Society (1/31/1917); the announcement that Dr. Weizmann has agreed to address the next public meeting of the Society (3/28/17). followed by a protest made at the London Council in connection with the non-appearance of Dr. Weizmann (4/25/1917); Proposal to obtain Mr. Israel Zangwill's services as lecturer at a public meeting (4/11/1917); the question of Jewish military action in Palestine (6/13/1917), and the question of raising a Jewish Legion (12/23/1917); the appointment of Nathan Lazarus and Maurice L. Perlzweig as delegates to the special conference of the EZF (10/1918), etc. Each entry is dated, and hand-signed by Chairman Nathan Lazarus. By order of appearance, the following members' names are mentioned in the minute-book: Nathan Lazarus (Chairman); Maurice L. Perlzweig**; Miss Cohen; Mr. B. Grad; Mr. Morgenstern; Mr. Kersch; Mr. Scher; Miss P. Slowe; Mr. Ginsburg; Mr. Benson; Mr. L. Wainstein; Mr. Traub; Mr. A. Levine (warden of the New Synagogue, Stamford Hill); and Mr. Charles Kauffman. Some rubbing and abrasion to moire. Sporadic smudges to endpapers. Minor age-toning throughout. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in very good condition. Notes: * After almost two millennia of existence of the Jewish diaspora without a national state, the Zionist movement was founded in the late 19th century by secular Jews, largely as a response by Ashkenazi Jews to rising antisemitism in Europe, exemplified by the Dreyfus affa.

About this Item: Vienna 10th February, 1902. Large 4to, (29 x 22.5 cm), one page, addressed to U. Ginsburg in Odessa, rubber-stamped 'Das Actions-Comite' and signed by Herzl in indelible purple pencil and a secretary in ink; two punch holes for filing in the left-hand margin (touching one letter), two folds, lower margin a little frayed. Text in German. Mounted. Herzl's letter to Ahad Ha'am. This letter to the Zionist activist, theoretician and author Asher Hirsch Ginsburg (a.k.a. Ahad Ha'am) welcomes him as newly elected member of the Cultural Commission, which had been established at the Fifth Zionist Congress at Basle at the end of 1901. Herzl further brushes aside the allegations, that the Odessa delegate at the Congress had not regularly paid his contributions to the Zionist organisation. 'Moreover, your election is unconditional,' Herzl assures him and encourages him to apply his energy to support the common cause and become active in the Cultural Commission. Ahad Ha'am (1856-1927) was one of the leading figures of Eastern European Zionism, protagonist of Cultural Zionism, coined the term 'Jewish Nietzscheanism' and through the Cultural Commission gained much influence over the younger generation, such as Chaim Weizman, Micha Josef Bersyczewski and Hayyim Nahman Bialik. Although opposed to Herzl's and Pinker's 'Political Zionism' predominant at the World Zionist Congress of the time, he inspired the foundation by Weizmann in 1901 of the 'Democratic Faction,' which promoted Cultural Zionism, contributed to the Hebrew Renaissance through the Cultural Commission and was an influential negotiator during the preparation of the Balfour Declaration. Herzl letters to a named recipient, especially to a renowned and influential Zionist, have become exceedingly rare. Seller Inventory # 89184

About this Item: Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, 1968. Hardcover. Condition: near fine. Original document. Oblong Quarto. 28 plates with 39 silver gelatin photographs (5 x 7"), all tipped onto black card stock with tissue guards, all titled in white ink under the photographs. Original padded black leather album bound with leather strings and mounted, decorative stamped metal plate bolted to cover with turquoise ornamentation at corners. Black leather pocket with signed typed card sewn to inside black silk cover: "Dear Lilo and Rolf, May our bonds remain closely knit despite the distance that will now separate us," signed in two hands "Yours Meyer and Shirley." Dr. Rolf Friedemann Pauls was the first German Ambassador to Israel and served in this capacity from 1965 to 1968.The photo-album is divided into two sections, one documents the campus of the Weizmann Institute of Science, the second documents four dignitaries during visits on the occasion of the bestowal of Honorary Fellowships by the Weizmann Institute of Science. The first part containing 23 of the photographs showing various institutes on campus, e.g. the Ullmann Institute of Life Sciences, the Dannie N. Heineman Accelerator Laboratory and the Tandem van de Graaf Accelerator, the Michael Institute of Nuclear Science, the Daniel Sieff Research Institute, the Wix Auditorium and Central Library, the Wolfson Institute of Experimental Biology, the Final Resting Place of Chaim and Vera Weizmann, and a number of other institutes and residential areas. The second section contains 16 photographs divided into three parts: Konrad Adenauer's visit in 1966 with seven photographs showing the German Chancellor with Mrs. Chaim Weizmann (1), Dr. Nahum Goldmann and Meyer W. Weisgal (2), Meyer W. Weisgal (3), Adenauer at the Weizmann grave (4), Adenauer's response to his honorary Fellowship Award in the Wix Auditorium (5 and 6), and Adenauer with Meyer W. Weisgal and President of the Weizmann Institute Abba Eban (7). German Chancellor Ludwig Erhardt in 1967 with five photographs, two of them with Ambassador Pauls: the greeting by Meyer W. Weisgal (1), Weisgal reading out the Chancellor's Honorary Fellowship Citation (2), Erhardt's response in the Wix Auditorium (3), Erhardt with the head of the Dannie Heineman Laboratory and Ambassador Pauls (4), and Erhardt and Pauls at the grave of Chaim and Vera Weizmann (5). Experimental nuclear physicist Wolfgang Gentner in 1965, prior director of the Synchrocyclotron Department at CERN and the Max Planck Institute of Nuclear Physics at Heidelberg, with four photographs: with Meyer W. Weisgal and Abba Eban (1), with Gentner's response to his Honorary Fellowship (2), Gentner with the incased scroll (3) and Gentner with Ambassador Pauls (4). The Weizmann Institute is a public multidisciplinary research university in Rehovot, Israel. It was founded as the Daniel Sieff Research Institute in 1934. When Chaim Weizmann became President of the State of Israel in 1949, the institute was renamed the Weizmann Institute of Science in his honor. Ambassador Rolf Friedemann Pauls was the son of a Protestant clergyman. Pauls became a career officer in the infantry of the Wehrmacht. Due to a serious injury while the commanding officer of a company in Russia Pauls lost his left arm. In 1944 he was awarded the Knight's Cross. According to General Hans Speidel, who belonged to the inner circle of the conspirators in the raid to assassinate Hitler on July 20, 1944, Pauls was part of the plan but escaped arrest due to the silence of others. At first Pauls appeared to be an inappropriate choice for the post of Ambassador to Israel and his inauguration on August 19, 1965 was met by counter-demonstrations. Paul's tenure was generally judged as successful. From 1968-1973 Pauls was appointed to the post of Ambassador to the United States, after that to China from 1973-1976 and to NATO from 1976-1980.
