MEDIA REVIEWS
"A scholarly analysis of the Arab agricultural society and the development of the Jewish agricultural movement in the decades just before the establishment of the nation. . . . Kamen's study sheds much light on some of the basic differences which underlie the conflicts which endure today."
--B'nai Brith Messenger
"Relying on Zionist and Israeli State Archives, published official British documents, and numerous secondary sources, Kamen here analyzes the effects of Jewish land purchases and settlement on Palestinian Arabs and their agriculture during the British Mandate era. . . . Recommended for all Middle East collections."
--Choice
"Kamen has not only met the scholarly challenges, he has also produced a book that deserves to be admired for its intelligence and thorough honesty. . . . Scholarship of this sort is worthy of the highest praise."
--Middle East Journal
