PALESTINE
UNDER BRITISH MANDATORY RULE

[In German]

by Dr J. Parkes

The aim of this pamphlet is not to speculate on the future of Palestine, nor to provide a solution of the problem, but to describe the events leading up to the situation in Palestine today.

Dr. Parkes gives an account of the position of the British, the Arabs, and the Jews in Palestine at the end of the 1st World War, and traces the political history since that date, a melancholy story of the clash of apparently irreconcilable rights and of legitimate but incompatible interests.

"Palestine is still waiting for the Solomon, whether British, Jew, or Arab, who will produce a political solution."


Fortunately there is another and brighter side to the picture: "None of the paradoxes that the world can offer are as startling as the contrast between the barren stagnation of the political conflict, which suggests a country in which neither change nor progress can be expected, and the transformation of life wrought in the last twenty years, which would appear to have been possible only in a land of complete peace, harmony, and security."

The remainder of the pamphlet describes some of the important social, industrial, and economic experiments made in Palestine in the last twenty years and the large measure of success which has attended them.

James Parkes, the author is a leading authority on the Jewish question, and his latest work is his volume on The Jewish Problem in the Modern World published in the Home University Library in 1939.
