Seventy years after the creation of the State of Israel, Palestine to Israel: Mandate to State, 1945-1948 offers the definitive narrative of the achievement of Jewish sovereignty in the beleaguered Promised Land. Professor Monty Noam Penkower explores developments in Palestine and in the Arab states, including how the Palestine quagmire became a pawn in inter-Arab feuds; British and American responses both official and public; the role of Holocaust survivors; the context of the Cold War; and the saga as it unfolded in the corridors of the United Nations. Joining extensive archival research to a lucid prose, the two volumes offer a riveting conclusion to his Palestine in Turmoil and Decision on Palestine Deferred.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With the publication of Palestine to Israel: Mandate to State, 1945-1948, Monty N. Penkower completes his magisterial trilogy on the rise of the modern State of Israel. This is a scholarly achievement many years in the making, as the depth of the author's research and keen analysis clearly demonstrate. The expanse of Penkower's historical landscape testifies to his broad scholarly vision." --Rafael Medoff, The David Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, H-Judaic--Rafael Medoff "H-Judaic "

"This year, Monty Noam Penkower, professor emeritus of Jewish History at the Machon Lander Graduate School of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem, has continued his major contribution to the field of Middle East studies, providing an in-depth analysis of the conditions surrounding the establishment of the State of Israel. ... Given the plethora of studies on the creation of Israel, it is tempting to downplay the possibility that Penkower's two latest volumes can add to the understanding of what has become an intractable conflict. That would be a mistake." --Dr. Alex Grobman, The Jewish Link
