Quick overview The first biography of a writer, J.M.N.Jeffries, whose pioneering researches in the 1920s and 30s laid bare the way the British government, and in particular the Balfour Declaration of 1917, betrayed the Palestinian Arabs, by helping to turn Palestine into a Jewish state.
Product description

During the 1920s and 30s, a British journalist, J.M.N. Jeffries. followed the events in Palestine with growing anger, as he saw the effects of the Balfour Declaration of 1917 on the indigenous Arab inhabitants as they faced the loss of their rights and their land to a movement, political Zionism, which wanted to take over Palestine and turn it into a Jewish state. Colin Andersen has written the first ever biography of Jeffries and of how he came to write his monumental book, Palestine: The Reality, which revealed the truth about the injustice being inflicted on the Palestinians. He also tells the story of how the book disappeared from circulation after publication, and has only now been republished in the centenary year of the Balfour Declaration. Balfour in the Dock is a devastating indictment of British policy in the Middle East and strengthens the growing campaign for an apology for the Balfour Declaration which has caused such havoc in world politics over the last hundred years.
