Based on Arab as well as western sources, this is a lucidly written history of the development of Arab nationalism, the revolution during WW1 and the partition of Arab lands afterwards. Written in 1939, it ends with a warning that "no room can be made in Palestine for a second nation except by dislodging or exterminating the nation in possession."
