Britain and the Palestine Mandate
Speaker(s): Professor Norman Rose
Chair: Professor David Stevenson
Recorded on 4 March 2009 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.
A review of British policies in Palestine in particular and the Middle East in general with special emphasis on the inter-war and post-war periods. For the Jews, this critical period led to the establishment of the state of Israel, for the Palestinians, to their 'Nakba' (Catastrophe), and for the British, a humiliating retreat from their imperial standing. Norman Rose is a graduate of the LSE and now holds the Chair of International Relations at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem.
